More Belated March Blocks


A while back I posted my first set of March blocks (all in red), and now I've finished the March blocks for my second quilt (stitched in green and with red and green borders). Originally I was going to do the second quilt all in green, no red but I reconsidered. I actually like the all green best of these three blocks, but a whole quilt like that seemed boring.

So, Chookyblue, I now have completed 6 blocks for the record.

I'll have plenty of time to work on April's blocks. My husband and I are taking a long but brief car trip to Ohio. 1000 miles = lots of stitching time in the car even if I do half the driving.

They look fantastic. Love the green but the red does give it that bit extra! Can't wait to see the finished quilt!!

I used to take hand stitching and leave it in my lap for red lights. And books. Good thing I never caused an accident.

Enjoy your trip!
