    Lovely, Carol!
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.

    I like blue and yellow together, Carol. It looks very pretty.

    This was a fun block to do, although I'll admit I just paper pieced it on paper instead of transferring it to muslin. Looking at it now, I'm thinking I might want to trim down the background and add a border, but I might just wait till I see all the blocks together at the end. Thanks for this fun one. I'm planning a few more blocks to make potholders as gifts.

    Carol & Feathers, love bothof your blocks. The lace is a beautiful addition. And Feathers, the green came out nicely. I kept thinking in pinks & reds & never considered green, but I really like it.

    Feathers-N-Fur............Wow, this block is spectacular!! I think your color choices are really great. If you chose to trim down the background & add a border around it, I would definately wait until you can see a few more of your blocks all together. It would give you a much better idea. Wonderful work with all of your blocks so far. LOVE the green rick-rack!!

    improved Feb. block

    After seeing my February hearts I decided they needed something else so I added the trimmings. I like them now & am doing another one with Valentines fabric I got last week at Hobby Lobby @ 60% off.

    Joyce/Mimi...I can see a whole quilt with blocks of hearts, all embellished with different trims. Yours look wonderful. Dang it. My list just keeps growing of 'want-to-do's'!
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Thanks SandyinZ4.
    I have been wondering what to do with these blocks other then a quilt. What are some of you doing?
    Have considered table toppers, small quilts to use on door in place of a wreath (inside garage), or just mug rugs to pass on as gifts.
    I want to start doing something with them so they don't wind up with my zillions of orphan blocks

    I absolutely love these blocks, the colors, and the layout you are using. Those small blocks are such a great idea. I cannot wait to see this finished.

    I just finished my block learning how to use embroidery stitches with my new machine. Since I only started doing these blocks a few weeks ago, I'm finally caught up and ready for the April block. What a great way to learn new techniques. Thanks so much for all the tips.

    Great job, love the greens for March!

    Wow, did you say you were ready for April...okay hint.....4 fabrics....dark for background.....other 3 bright and colorful!
    Of course, mine background is solid black, but the other colors are white on black, black on white with a bright blue...or did I tell ya'll that already?

    Hey I'll try not to eat too much Easter...and get it posted early. Not too early, I'm Central Time and I am NOT a morning person! But I'll have the message ready to be posted anyway!

    Hugs,
    Cajun
