    I like it as is, Linda. I think it does look like a field of flowers and it is another primary color when your blocks are all together.

    Nicky.........you are a girl after my own heart with your pp'ing!! I LOVE your block & the fabric you used is just awesome. So pretty. May I ask where you got your pattern? I am so addicted to pp'ing too, that I just can't stop making my blocks that way. Right now I am making the block that you have used in your Avatar. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us today.

It was an easy, fun block to make, though!

    Linda Lovely...........you have just made a Lovely Shamrock block for March & I really it!! The tonal green fabric just makes a perfect Shamrock. I don't think you need to make a different one, as the two different fabrics play very nice together. Also all three of your blocks look great together. You are going to have one gorgeous quilt by the end of the year.Thank you so much for participating & sharing with all of us!!

    Jean............you have just created the cutest Shamrock block for March!! All of the fabric's you chose to put together look just darling!! I saw this block on the Mystery Train thread before I found it here. I am sure that those ladies enjoyed getting to see it too! We can hardly wait to see what you come up with for your pick of the April block for next month. It's going to be so exciting waiting to see. Thank you for sharing your March block.

    Sulabug, I think the pattern Nicky used is from the book 365 Foundation Quilt Blocks from Linda Causee. I have the book, itīs great, never made a block but I love looking at it and need to find the courage to start one of them!

    Anael and Nicky - is the book different enough from Carol Doake's Foundation Factory to be worth buying as well? It retails at A$45.00 here (have seen it on special for A$38) so would be interested to hear your opinion before considering it.

    It's been great seeing everyone's blocks so far - they are all fabulous.

    My March block of the month

    I am enjoying the blocks of the month. I even had my handy guy (oh, he's so handy) make me a rack to hang the blocks every month.

    OH MY GOSH.....I thought I was posting small pictures. On the camera with my Xoom it has picture sizes by pixels and I had no idea how many pixels would be equal to 640 x 480...the recommended size. The default is 5 pixels and I choose 3....too BIG.

    Forgot to mention that when I was cutting my squares I goofed...cut them 2.5 instead of 3.5. I decided to go with it at that size and it worked out better for me. My little rack is made for a 12" block and I wouldn't have been able to put a border on the original size...it would have been too large. Sometimes our "goofs" aren't sew bad, huh!

    Nice blocks - each and everyone has been special. This one's been fun, so many have already posted and it's only the 4th, 27 more days to go.
    Enjoy the day, Chickadee_42us

    Finished my block this morning. My mom's birthday was on St. Patty's day and this block has lots of special meaning to me!

    Tweety2911, I love your shades of green batiks-beautiful. I also really like the batik background fabric. Did you change the edges of the shamrock? It seems to have more shape-anyway, it looks very nice.

    pghpat, your wall hanging is so pretty! Is that what you are going to do with all of your BOM blocks? I think that's a very clever idea.

    Hi Deecee, the book has general instructions for newbies, and then cutting charts for each block. And of course beautiful photos. The cutting charts are nice, if you want to make the blocks the original size. In the book, the blocks are all 4" (or 8" if you put 4 of them together), and the alphabet blocks are 3".

    Foundation Factory is software from Quiltpro.com, and there are different modules you can buy. Several of them are companions for Carol Doak's books. Each is around $20, but sometimes on sale for $14.95. You can download it instantly! With FF there are no instructions or cuttting charts, BUT you can print the block any size and the seam allowances are correct. With the book, I often enlarge or reduce the patterns with my printer/copier, but then I have to adjust the seam allowances, which also get enlarged or reduced.

    So there are advantages to both. I hope this helps. Personally if I could only have one, I would choose the software.

    I get all my quilting books from Amazon.com, and usually can find them in good used condition for a great price.

    Anael, yes it is a great book! Be brave! They are not hard. You just have to add your own seam allowances, but that is good since it makes it easier to enlarge or reduce the size of the blocks!
