The first one was from the ALQS8. It is called Mason’s Whirl and was made by Marie (no blog) in NH and I really love her design and use of colors. As I have said before, this is a fabulous swap each year.
My second mini quilt came from Sharon as she was my partner this round in our Sewing with Friends swap. Her work on this is perfect and I love how this little quilt says “spring” through and through.
This past year I have been a member of a Japanese X&+ block swap. Our group sadly fell apart along the way and we were only left with a few members. I hated to see the blocks that I had received not be put to good use so I have slowly added more blocks over the year as I made exchange blocks for others. I think I now have enough to make a top with them. After looking at the photo of the blocks, I see a few that need to be changed, but this will be my goal for April’s ALYoF.
One last March project that was finished was a feedsack challenge. Emily provided us with a vintage feedsack to repurpose and this is what I decided to do with mine.
I cut up some old denim jeans, used an orphan quilt block and used the feedsack to create a pillow for the sofa. It has a nifty pocket on the back to store the ever lost remote control! Thanks, Em, for the chance to play with the feedsack.
Now.......onwards to April!
