Lovely Year of Finishes- March Finish



Hey Guys!

This month’s goal was simple:

March Goal

  1. Get caught up with my Sugar Blocks!

Well I finished!  The block for February was my first attempt at paper piecing….it was tedious and it is not  perfect.  Thank goodness I subscribe to the galloping horse method.  If you are on a horse galloping by my quilt it will LOOK perfect ;0)

After doing these three block I cannot wait to get the pattern for April!  I am also in love with Essex Linen.  I will be back on Monday for my next set of goals and a snap shot of my finishes for the month.  Have a great Easter!

Until next time, Sew Pretty!

I am just a girl trying to be crafty. Well really a woman but my thoughts are girly. I am embarking on a journey. I hope to complete all of my goals, share and learn from others.

  1. I fell in love with Essex Linen last year but be forewarned, it shrinks and shrinks and shrinks and keeps on shrinking with every wash!!

  2. Love your natural linen background. The April block is more paper piecing but for some reason it looks easier to me. Haven’t started on it yet though. Going to tackle Laura Nowes block first. Also, I’ve been working on miniatures of Amy’s blocks. Check it out here. http://stitchingtimes.blogspot.com/2013/03/scale.html. Not sure I’ll try to reduce the paper pieced blocks, but if I do, I’ll let you know how it goes.

  3. Great job on your finished blocks! Essex linen is such a beautiful choice for a background. LOL @ “galloping horse method”! I’m going to have to remember that whenever I am being too hard on myself!

    Thank you for linking up to Let’s Get Acquainted this week!

  4. Love the Essex linen look as well. Your blocks are so pretty with it.

  5. What wonderful vibrant blocks. Great job.

  6. Haha- galloping horse method, that’s great! I definitely subscribe to that method as well 😉 I love your blocks! I haven’t tried Essex linen yet, but it looks fabulous in those blocks!

  7. Looking good! I didn’t have enough guts to try paper piecing with shapes that have points at the end…thus my hexagons…we shall see how it goes… 😀
