Hello March!

Hooray for March!

This month the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is YELLOW! I made my March Nine Patch Nirvana BOM in yellows. I love the skulls :) I love making just one block a month. Check out what everyone else is making for their Rainbow Scrap Challenge this week.

I also finished my Love Notes baby quilt. It turned out cute! I am saving it for when I need a baby girl gift, I think. I prefer a brighter color palette but this one turned out very sweet and I am sure it will be perfect for some baby girl someday!

This week we got the 2nd clue to our guild's mystery quilt. I have one 'wing' on each of my geese. I should get the second 'wing' on today or tomorrow. I am really enjoying this mystery so far. If you would like to work on the mystery too our guild is posting the steps on our website here.

This isn't quilting related, but I did get some new shoes. Bright pink! I think they are the perfect shoes to celebrate the coming of spring!

Soon will be our guild retreat. I need to figure out what I am going to take to work on. I am thinking a yellow and white baby quilt, my daughter's graduation quilt, and/or the quilt I have started called Twirling Hexagons to donate to a senior. I have to start cutting all my fabric for all of these quilt tops, so that is probably what I will work on next week. I want to be ready for retreat so hopefully I can get a lot accomplished while I am there!!
I am happy it's March!

    1. I forget the name/designer of the yellow skulls. My daughter made a quilt using it a couple of years ago, and I've been using the leftovers. It worked nicely in this block!

    1. Hi Sheila, purple will be a challenge for me. It's not my favorite. I have cut up lots of yellow 2.5 inch squares for the baby quilt I plan to make. I may have enough squares to make two yellow baby quilts :) yea! Now to cut the background fabrics. :)

    1. Hooray for pink shoes! Since I am coordinating this BOM with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, it forces me to only make one block a month. If I knew the colors of the months ahead of time, I probably would work ahead! Sometimes it is nice to just make one block and be done for a while though!
