A Question Answered

Fiona @Dragonfly-crafts asked an excellent question today about exactly what you need to have the month officially completed. I have answered her in the comments, but thought I would post this here too so you can all see it easily in case anyone else has a question. (Chookyblue, feel free to correct me if I have it wrong!)

the plan!
To have the month completed you need to complete and show all of the blocks allocated for that month. Each month has some applique blocks, some blocks of squares, and a block of strips and squares. They don't have to be joined together, but can be if you like. You'll notice that the top and bottom blocks of strips and squares are allocated to February and March and won't be able to be joined until everything else is finished. Hope that clears everything up. Keep up the good work girls! I know just from the glimpses you have been showing here on the blog that these quilts are going to be gorgeous! Must get back to mine.
