Looking forward to March

March is the last month of this quarter, so I'll need to look back and see what I thought I'd finish this quarter.

First up is my ALYOF goal for March, to finish my Orbit quilt. This is so nearly done. I have about 1 metre of binding to hand stitch down. I will take this with me to the Eisteddfod this week in case we have any quiet moments. Then I have one square and five octagons to quilt which I'm planning to start today.

I also have my Wishes quilt to finish. Two Jersey friends have finished theirs, my blocks are sewn together and need a border, I think. Having dug the project out of my cupboard, I need to do one length of sashing on the longest sides and then the border. I also want to finish a few Moda Building blocks this month but that's not a official goal just a step towards finishing the project.

My smaller project to complete is a bag of teddies which has sat here for two years and need to be turned into Beau Bears. As well as these I have three bees to complete blocks for, I like to get these finished early on in the month so wait enthusiastically for the instructions  to be released.

A Lovely Year of Finishes

Sounds like a busy month for you! I love the top quilt you showed. It's fresh and lovely like Spring. I hope Spring is heading your way where you live!

You have so many plans I hope you are able to get to all of them. I love the fabrics and design in your quilt you are so close to completing.
