March all done

Here are my March blocks - posting a day late since taking photos at night doesn't work as well.  Then, as soon as I had them ready to shoot the sun disappeared so they arent as good as they could be.

No chimney for me - no-one in Brisbane needs a chimney!


And "Flowers in my Garden" is my preference over working in the garden - takes away from sewing time and makes your hands dirty!
My top row

 with spell check!
 and the whole thing minus top & bottom borders
April blocks are all done apart from a bit of appliqueing and making the spacer blocks.
Mark me off Chookyblue & Assistants!  :-)

It sounds like that gardening all day is a pretty scary proposition for most of us, I like your change of words. Your bright colours look just so pretty in this quilt. Tracee xx
