Tis the Season March blocks.






Well, its been a while but here are my March blocks completed at last. Sorry the photos are a bit light. I took some time choosing what fabric I would use in the blocks, but finally, instead of buying all new fabric, I found a Crazy 8 honey roll that I have had in my stash for quite some time . I was going to use only the red, green and cream strips but have decided to use all the colours which include pinks, aquas and navy blues. Have also found some Crazy 8 yardage still available on the net for the borders, sashings and binding so will order that next week. How lucky is that!!

Have also started stitching my April blocks with one completed so far and I am still working on my Gardeners Journal ones as well.

Well, till next time............Happy stitching
