    At least March looks fairly doable.

    Well, I must say that the March row was just as much fun as January and February...I just completed mine - here's a couple of photos.....I also want to share with you something that I decided to do...

    This month's directions don't say anything about adding the shamrock row to the other rows but I've decided to keep adding them as per January and February - with a 1" strip....

    HINT: I found out that it is best to press your seems for the 1" strips towards the 1" strip - if you do the other way I find that it gives a puckering in the 1" strip - for me anyways....

    For the stem of the shamrock, I decided to paper piece this one.....I just simly made a 2 1/2" square.....draw a line diagonally from one corder to the other and then draw another line a little less than 1/4 on each side of this one - use these lines for your sewing lines - works like a charm..and makes up so quickly - certainly faster than applique.


    I also added a 1" strip to the top of my snowflakes to finish that off..and I went ahead and added a 1" strip to the bottom of my shamrocks so now I'm all ready for the Aril row...

    Looking forward to hearing how you are all doing!

    Hugs,

    Bill

    Hi BK....
    You make me giggle...... :-).....
    You really don't have to paperpiece...I just thought that it was a much easier way of doing the stems....rather than applique. :-)...
    HUGS!!!!!

    Wow Bill! I'm impressed! You've whipped out March before it even got here! And your quilt top is looking fabulous!I'm still sorting through the red fabrics to tackle February this week. I'm glad you're on top of things, because I'm still trying to catch up! Yes, we'll all be thrilled when December gets here for sure!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    Hi MaryAnna,,,
    You'll catch up.......of all 3 months so far,,the snowflakes were the more time consuming - the hearts and the shamrocks make up faster :-)

    Do you think we can put more shamrocks in the row or should we stick with the pattern?

    Quilter7x,
    If you want to have less of the backgroung and more shamrocks I think that it would look great with more shamrocks...you could easly turn that 3rd row into a full row of shamrocks...I didn't even think of that but I think that it would look great.....but I think that I would still space them out a bit - wiht a little division - like the hearts..otherwise I'm afraid it may look too "crowded".....
    Once we are doing the blocks we can easily make our own twist on things...

    Thats also my feeling ... if I only knew the sizes I would have to cut the pieces... :roll:
    IŽll wait perhaps an expert has a good idea ;)

    Bill,
    Your are a super fab group leader! I can't wait to get home from work to get started on this third row. Your rows and blocks are such an inspiration. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks! Love the paper piece tip.

    Oh, cool!!! I haven't been here in a few days, so I didn't realize the shamrocks were posted! It's all printed and ready to go. They look much easier than the snowflakes!

    Ligia,
    If you want me to work out the measurements for you just shout!

    ljs317 - :-) Let me know how it goes but the PP'd stem is fast and easy....

    KittyGramm...
    Yep...the shamrocks has been the easiest row so far for me.....

    Now, what does eveyone thing April will bring - will it be something to do with Easter or will it be something to do with Spring....I'm thinking perhaps something Floral..or could there be an egg...we were all expecting to be going "GREEN" for March - but I have no idea what color April will hold.....I guess this is going to be one of the bigger surprises so far.....

    HAPPY SEWING EVERYONE!

    Bill

    April could have something to do with rain, but you're probably right in that it could also be floral. Not sure about it being Easter since not everyone celebrates that holiday. I know, not everyone Valentine's Day or St. Patrick's Day either, but those are smaller holidays.

    I'm betting on umbrellas for April. April showers bring May flowers so May will be a flower. I'm at a loss for June. July could be a flag if Claudia's is in the US. If not, I have no guess.
