    Here is my March 2012 Calendar block!! :D

    Hi Everyone...........here is a picture of the block that I have put together for the month of March. You will notice that I chose to make the leaves of the clover in one piece, so I could showcase my beautiful Batik fabric. This fabric is one of my very favorite Batiks & I love it!! Get you machines started & get to sewing on your new block for the month of March.

    Linda, your block is beautiful. You did a wonderful job choosing the March BOM and also creating a tutorial for everyone.

    SulaBug, I love your block. I love the batik fabric you used. I'm also going to use batik fabric for my blocks. You always do a wonderful job!

    Beautiful blocks, ladies! Linda C, I love the many shades of green you've used, especially since you're from Ireland where shades of green is one of the things it's known for.

    Sulabug, I love batiks, the colors are fabulous. I also love the embroidery and the date. So many ways to go with this one.

    Linda, I love that you added shades of browns and yellow to your shamrock, brings out a feel of a a field of clover and adds dimension. Very lovely!

    Great fabrics so far.

    Not sure if I want to use different greens or take advantage of my focus fabric and do the sections in one piece like Sulabug's. Still thinking on that.

    Note to self: Remember to turn off the auto-flash

    Hey everyone.. Im very happy with the results of making the March square, however Im not happy with the picture my camera took..darn flash messed it up.

    I followed the pattern with the exceptions of making 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 log cabin squares for the leaf blocks. 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.
