March Mini Quilt...

My March mini quilt fabric choices
I'm so happy to have been able to get into the studio for a little sewing yesterday afternoon. Funny how much happier I am when I've had my "fabric fix".

I pulled the fabrics to make my mini quilt from my stash, and set to making the transfers from the design to fabric.
Flo's Design for March
This is the original quilt, designed by one of our Saturday morning coffee group gals, Flo Shannon. It was only appropriate that she do the design for March with her Irish last name! I love her design with the shamrocks and pot of gold.

My March Mini Quilt
I reversed Flo's drawing prior to putting it onto my bonding paper, but once it was all fused, it appears that Flo had already done the reversing for me. We're only required to use the elements as we choose, so it's not critical that my shamrocks are reversed. (whew!)

I still have to layer and quilt the design, but all the elements are fused and stitched down and the border has been applied. Plenty of time to finish and find before Saturday morning when I'll take it over to the quilt shop.

It's fun to have these little monthly projects that we can do in between the more involved pieces. I'm going to be doing a wedding quilt to finish before April 15th, too. It's going to be a busy few weeks coming up!

Come back tomorrow when I'll be debuting my latest giveaway!

That is a great project. It's fun to have something like this to do because they go so quickly and you have almost instant gratification of having a finish.

Hi Donna, I love the colors that you picked for your March quilt. It is always fun to see what you are doing. I am having some me time this evening. Hubby is asleep so I have peace and quiet without any interruptions. I need to get my pictures taken of what I have been working on. Hope you take some pictures of the other quilts. I like both of them today. Have a great weekend. Take Care Your Missouri Friend.
