March finished Projects

March proved to be a very productive month. I had 10 days off while hubby was away watching the Brier Curling; so my sewing machine, "Husky" and I had a real good fling! And I managed to reach my goals for the:
This was the pile of projects I submitted and set as goals to finish this month.. .....I machine quilted these pieces except for Miss Émilie's Blossom Time... I decided and was supported by Kelly that I should hand quilt it...(Maybe she will have her quilt from Grand-mère when she graduates from University)..She is 18 months old!#1Table topper....Pattern a "This and That" Days Gone By ... #2 I finished my table topper from the Spring Sewing party ....
#3... I made this wall hanging
out of Holly Jolly leftover fabrics....Pattern is Christmas Gift Tree from the Quilter's World Magazine December 2008 Vol.30 No.6 issue


Remember this pattern and all the blocks I had already made? I couldn't decide how I was going to put these blocks together? The decision was a long time coming......I think I tried three different possibilities before I decided on this I designed the appliqués strips to fit the blocks.
I will have another attempt at this pattern someday but I want to make it all in the same fabric line. The pattern is from: Lori Smith; From My Heart To Your Hands
I had some blocks left over so I made this wall hanging.....and

with the one block left I made this table centrepiece... the binding is ready to be sewn


This is my...... March BOM "Better By the Dozen" in the Kansas Winter.




Next... The Stone Cottage...

is ready for quilting...The pattern can be found on Andover Fabrics and I made this in the Henry Glass "In The Pink 11"...


And last, my Heritage Square quilt by Miss Rosie's is all finished......Agnes did her magic with her hand quilting.


There was no time to be bored or lonely!


Winter has come and gone and I look forward to the next season. I have enjoyed sewing with all of you, this winter and now with spring literally here, I look forward to again supporting one another in the projects to come!


♥♥♥☺Happy spring, and happy sewing☺♥♥♥

  14. Your finishes are FANTASTIC...plain and simply...FANTASTICE.

    I am LOVING the Christmas Gift Tree. Why? Because I love Christmas Trees. I saw this in the magazine, I think I've kept it to do "sometime" and you have given me inspiration to do it SOONER rather than later.

    You have outdone yourself, my friend.

  22. Wow! You certainly had a really productive March! I'm so upset that I had to take March off from the CGQC, but It's been really a tough month... In hindsight I didn't realize how much I really needed the time off from sewing but I did!

    I'll be back next month but I'm going to keep it simple (Lol... not really!) and I'm going to take it slow (bahahah not really either!) I look forward to having a great April!
