The stem block I was forced to paper piece because I didn't have enough material to make the cuts the pattern called for. I used one inch strips to make the log cabin blocks an I set my need all the way to the right to sew the one inch strips together.
    The square measures 11.5 X 11.5 So I am trying to decide what fabric to frame it with to bring it to the 12.5 X 12.5 finished block. Now to go back and work on Jan and Feb blocks. I totally messed up Jan and have to redo it. Feb needs to be expanded to the finishing block size.

    I haven't decided but I am thinking to try and hand quilt as I go each block and then join them. So once I get Jan and Feb caught up I think I will make my decision and start on the quilting of the blocks made so far. Will check back in to ooh and ahh everyones blocks as they are posted this month.
    Cute idea. Looks great

    I thought I had added this thread to my email, but guess I didn't click everything. I love the blocks, as usual. Here it is only the first of the month, and I'm ready for April. I'm on another BOM but I think I'm going to make this block for that one too. And when I figure my embroider machine out, I'll add a little embelishments to some of my blocks. Since I'm making them for my granddaughters, I want to make two different blocks each month, but since we are part Irish, this is a good block to duplicate. So here is my March block.

    I sat down this evening to get this fun and cute block done. I'm also doing the 50 Fabulous State Stars BOM, which I'm way behind in completing. So, I figured I would get this one done tonight so that I don't forget to do it this month while playing catch up with the other BOM.

    Jenniky..........I must also say, "OOH and AHH" about your wonderful Shamrock block for the March 2012 BOM project!! How did you ever get the idea to use log cabin blocks for your main leaves? It couldn't look any nicer & I am sure you have made everyone put on their thinking caps, as to how they can make their's original!! Thank you so much for sharing with all of us. This show & tell is so much fun, keep the blocks coming everyone!!

    WOW, another lovely Shamrock block for the March BOM of 2012!! The different green fabrics you picked out & put together are wonderful. I love them all. Please share with us again, after you add some machine embrodiery. I know everyone would love to see it again, too. Now I can't wait to see your next March block. Do your GD's know that you are making them these quilt's? Thank you for sharing your great block.

    OMGoodness, you are really fast too!! What pretty shades of green fabric's you picked out for your block. I love all of them & they look so nice & crisp with your white background. Now that you are finished with this BOM, I hope you can get caught up with the 50 Fabulous State Stars project. I will have to check in & see how you are doing. Thank you for sharing with all of us.

    Thanks so much for the shamrock block. I have been unable to work along each month this year but this block inspires me. With a name like Marymc I obviously am of Irish heritage. I think my next project will be a scrappy quilt of greens in the shamrock block pattern.

    What beautiful fabric's you have put together for your March 2012 Shamrock block!! I just love it, the greens are so yummy looking. Now that you have this done, you will have plenty of time for your other projects, before it is April & time for another block!! Thank you for sharing with all of us & good luck sewing!!

    MaryMc...........I love your idea of a scrappy quilt of greens, using this Shamrock block!! I can just picture how pretty that will be. Please remember to share pictures with all of us, as you make your blocks. We will be so anxious to see them!! Good Luck & have fun sewing.
