Finished blocks for March

Finished my blocks for this month, I didn't realise that I had to add the borders as well until I was re-reading the sidebar the other day :)  at least they are completed now.


While I was doing the block borders I cut the fabric for the outside borders, binding and backing as well, this way I know that I have that part of the quilt ready and I won't run out of fabric.


 Maybe another border in red will give it an extra spark, there's still plenty of time to play around with fabric choices.
