1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March. I blogged about this on my blog thinking maybe one or 2 others may join us and lots of girls indicated an interest so I decided to start this blog where we can all encourage each other to meet the goals set along the way....March 2010 -March 2011...........
2nd SAL ......well so many of the girls wanted to continue on with another project and some new girls joined us and now approx 91 girls are stitching Natalie Bird's Tis the Season. March to Sept 2011...............
3rd SAL....many girls want to stick with the SAL so now we have moved onto Anni Downs Some Kind of Wonderful - My Favourite Things Quilt.......Oct 2011-Oct 2012.........

March Blocks Finished!!

I'm happy to share my March blocks completed - and only 1 day late!!  I'm enjoying the stitching but the sewing together seems to take ages!!  Anyway I'm happy and I'm really loving seeing everyone elses combination of colours and fabrics - they all look fantastic!


The house block!


My flower block became simply "flowers" .... because I love them all!!


And this time I remembered to finish the top strips as well!!


And of course .... my favourite things!!  Great to see how Chookyblue is inspiring everyone on to bigger and better things!!   Great work everyone !!    Fiona H xxxx

I enjoyed the stitchery quilts much more than this one with applique but it has stretched me and taught me new skills. I like your blocks.
