Yay, my March blocks are finished.

I finished stitching them weeks ago & I’ve finished block 3, & nearly block 4, but I got stuck with the borders. It was all very well using a mix of colours but I just couldn’t get the fabrics I chose to work for the borders.

Dd Emma was here yesterday so I asked her opinion. She gave me a great idea for the layout which I would never have thought of, so I’m back in action. My blocks will only have 1 border, the reason will become obvious when the top is finished.

So here finally is block 1 & 2 & I’ll be able to post 3 & 4 early next month. :-)blocks 1 & 2

block 2
I was really pleased the little penguins were in the first month, they are my fave block. I left out the 3rd of this month’s blocks, it is the 13th I don’t need.

My blocks won’t all have aqua borders. :-)

cheers,
