    Here is my version of what Claudia proposed for March :-D
    I think I may have different versions also when it comes to flags
    or pumpkins. So many countries and different cultures on QB ... :thumbup:

    I love your shamrocks Ligia! Did you applique them by hand or machine? Hmmm, you're making me want to do them by machine applique. They're awesome!

    OK, so I cut out all the triangles for the first month. I hesitated, because I do NOT like sewing triangles for HST or QST's. I prefer to sew squares and then cut. But I went ahead and did it. And NOTHING matches up. I've thrown all of them in the trash, and I think I'm gonna give it up. What a waste of fabric!

    Several designers will sometimes take a request like that.....all you got to do is email her and really ask....no harm in asking nicely...Quilters are very generous people so far as I've ever since, right?

    No don't re-do!...no 2 snowflakes in nature are alike, so don't worry about it...it looks great!

    Hi Everyone,
    It was so great to catch up on here this morning.....a good Saturday morning to everyone....

    Kitty Grams,,
    There's lots of time to catch up.... you will get there....

    heidikins....
    Yes, there's lots of time - even for later bloomers..because this project is just 1 row per month - and it makes up in great time...

    TexasGranny,
    I love your rows..love the snowflakes...I love that they are different...I wouldn't change a thing,,,,STUNNING....great job!!!

    melodylamour....
    We will be watching for you - whenever you are ready to start in....

    SharonM...welcome to the group.....so glad that you will join us in this fun project..it is a blast!!!!


    ligia,
    Your shamrocks are wonderful - I love your rows...FABULOUS!!!!!


    Chewboo....
    You are doing fine - you will get them done :-).....there is no rush...


    gaigai,
    I'm so sorry that you had so many problems with the January row......perhaps it's just that the triagles were mixed up -don't throw them out - just take them and assemble them loosely and see how it works out - I am sure that you will end up with wonderful blocks..or perhaps you can just draw up a snowflake and paper piece it...if I can help with anything just drop me a message....

    stitchinwitch,,,
    Still lots of time to catch up - stick with us :-)


    JULY NEWS......can't give out any secrets....but I've been chit chatting with Claudia....and whether you are American or Canadian, don't worry about July :-)..That's all I can say..... :-)

    Wishing you all a wodnerful sewing weekend...

    Hugs,

    Bill

    No, I went ahead and threw them all away. If I get motivated again, I'll either work out the math to do it the easy way, sewing the squares together, or maybe try it paper piecing. I KNEW better than to cut triangles, and really hesitated for a long time, which goes to show, when it just doesn't feel right, it probably isn't.

    gaigai,,,,I hope you get motivated to try it again...the snowflakes were the hardest so far...the hearts made up rather quickly and easiry - and the shamrocks were just as easy or even easier....just need to get the snowflakes behind you.....

    Another Texan, About your snowflakes, don't snowflakes fall from the sky and twirl in the process? They look o.k., I am a fanatic when I think I've messed up and will redo so many times I turn silly. I just stumbled on to this mystry quilt while trying to find one I wanted earlier this evening, I printed one page of that and now I am frantically looking for the rest of the pattern. Anyway I have printed out the three months of patterns and I think I will join in the group. I try to get in on this quilting info and have been so pleased to get this site, I joined in Jan. and love it. So many interesting things going on here. I have a full plate and have planned to make, let's say planned again and hopefully make four quilts this year, three before Oct. our Fall Fair here in Pecos, Tx. Anyway Bill I am in, please keep us posted for the monthly patterns. I am a retired first grade teacher, but am doing four days a week math tutorials for 5th grade now at a local elem. and have been for the last five years now an I truly stay busy and may forget to check it out at first. I thought I would have oodles of time upon retirement, HA! HA! fooled myself, Anyway, I'm in Gerbie!

    Not only do they look great I am wondering if you would share how you did yours so that I can copy! I really like the "movement" in them!

    Wow - they're all looking great!! I love what everyones done so far!!

    I gave up after attempting to make my first snowflake.... it came out either a 1/4 or 1/2" too small for some reason! I am so not use to working with such tiny pieces!
    But now after seeing all of yours, I think I'm going to give it another try!
    :)

    Mary Anna, Sharon M and Daisyboo9 here is how I made the row:

    I draw a chubby heart shape ; repeated it on double side fusible web 3 times for each shamrock. Stems were cut from fusible leftovers between heart shapes. Fused hearts on a 4.5 strip of background fabric and machine appliqued.
    I set the pieces at random - distance between each other, position and distance from top/border - to get movement.
    Thanks for asking.

    PS: I fuse the web on fabric before piecing the shapes ... :)

    MollieSue, do give it another try. If I can do it anyone can. I finally had to admit the snowflakes weren"t perfect but unique
