March is a Finish!

This is the last day of March!
That means 1/4 of the year is past us!

Which is a good thing... there are a lot of
fun things coming up this year and
that includes planting flowers
and warmer weather...
the longer days
and wearing flip flops!

Oh, it is the simple things that I love the most!

I finished this Star Gazer quilt on Sunday... the wind was
crazy as you can see, so I ended up
taking a video of it blowing in the breeze and 
I shared it on IG.

I am super excited to have this one as a finish for the
month of March.


There was this as a finish also. 
But I really wanted to make a Tuffet out
of Strawberry Fields Revisited...
so right now I am gathering up materials 
to make another Tuffet... so it will match my Star Gazer quilt!

I also finished Grow this month!
I love this Moda fabric by Me and My Sister Designs!

So, now I am thinking... what's next?

Which got me to thinking about how much I 
had enjoyed the Farm Girl Vintage blocks...
which I only made half of and then got 
distracted and maybe just a little overwhelmed.
I think it's a little labor intensive to 
pick out new fabrics for each and every block...
I seriously think that was my breaking point.

But now I want to take the 20 blocks I have made
along with the others that had (do-overs) and 
flip to the back of that Farm Girl Vintage book
and start making them into quilts!
This has been lurking in the back of my mind since
 I found that box  of half square triangles a month or so 
ago. And then I saw that Tractor pattern with pinwheels
in FGV.

It's really nagging me so I am going to start with that for April.

I will see what else I can come up with using those blocks after
 I check out my Bee In My Bonnet board on Pinterest.

I like some of the smaller quilts made from the blocks that
have a theme going... 
like this from Thimbles and Threads...

Love your quilts...just beautiful. I had to chuckle when I read your comment on the unfinished quilt and blocks. I was just looking at my book, trying to decide if I want to start something . I have a quilt retreat coming up and you know how that goes...hummm.

I love the quilts and the other marvelous projects you have completed. Well done!

Now I love the very last quilt, that looks terrifically fun/
The other large quilt the last one? - made with me and my sister designs (my fav Moday line too)
What is the name of that one? I would love to buy the pattern. I must know

What's an unfinished quilt? LOL! I also have lots of those Farm Girl blocks and then I got sidetracked when I moved. It's been bugging me that I haven't done anything with them. And I LOVE your Strawberry Fields quilt and tuffet!
