    Yes I got this BOM done in time for St. Pat's day :-D

    ...just took me a little time to get it posted!

    March's BOM from Country Junk'tion is this sweet mini quilt. Mine is done in turquoise - some say shamrocks are blue, not the vibrant green that we are so accustomed to. (LOL! I used turquoise because I didn't have enough green.) Regardless, I am delighted to see what everyone has done with the projects from this BOM. Wow - my picture isn't very clear.

    The quilting that you cannot see in the background is done with shamrocks scattered all around. I took a picture of it but it didn't turn out. The gold coins are decorative buttons from discarded clothing. I've had them for about 15 years or so. Nice to have a use for them.

    If you are looking for a monthly project you can complete in a sitting or two, this is the place to go. She leaves lots of room for your own embellishment or interpretation.

    LOL! They do look a little silver, but the coins are indeed gold. My camera quality has much to be desired.

    Thanks...I really like yours and used it for inspiration. You chose different fabrics for your shamrocks and used the buttons. I'm so glad I looked at yours before I started mine! (remember, I used turquoise because I didn't have much green.)
