March finish


I've been able to sew every day this past week. Yay!

I reached my March goal:
Three blocks for the baby's star sampler.

Other things I accomplished:

Sent my charms off in the mail to Michele at Quilts From My Crayon Box for the Kate Spain Charm Swap Round 2. Here are my fabrics: Daydream!

Reflections in Tangerine and Cadence in yellow.

I also finished all 10 blocks made from the bonus HST units from the Swoon quilt. I'm going to use them as a teacher gift quilt. I don't really have any ideas for a layout though!
Help! Ideas please! Something simple!

So gorgeous and fun, aren't they? Very rainbow and busy.
These blocks were a lot of fun to make, because I had the HST all ready to go, sorted in piles by color. I had my Quiltmaker Magazine as my resource for block options (thanks to Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville for helping me remember that I had that issue!).
I challenged myself to work fast, because I usually don't work fast, and I don't have a lot of time with a newborn.
I also challenged myself to just make decisions quickly, picking a block layout and colors.
And I had a lot of fun! I actually found myself giggling once. Amazing! (maybe it was just late-night tired and having a few minutes to myself, and just giddy with finally having a baby asleep and off my lap and chest.)
Oh, this just gave me an idea for a book review. Note to self! Hint: 15 Minutes of Play by Victoria Findlay Wolfe.

I'm linking up with Kim at My Go-Go Life for Sew-Jo Saturday:
