March - Just Three!

Pin It
It's already been March for a few days! (can you believe it???)

February was not terribly productive for traceyjay quilts.  Steiger and Scarlet were each sick for about 3 weeks out of the month. :(

BUT - say it with me... "it is what it is." 

Last month's report:

1)  Hmmm... I am thinking I want to finish my Chubby Stars.  I feel like it needs to be on my couch.  If not that quilt, then another old WIP.  Maybe if I do one/month I will get them all done this year. :)

Penny Candy is on its way to the quilter finally!  Does that count? ;)  

2) A couple little swap gifts -- I am making a pillow for Crystal, and a surprise for some of my quilty ladies who will be gathering without me (darn high cost of plane tickets!)  

I made a cute bag for Angela!  And I'm working on Crystal's pillow. :)

my gifts for Angela

3) A super fun quilt that uses these:

AMH rainbow!

I got this quilt top done!  Also on its way to the quilter!


March's goals:

1) Make a baby quilt.  They're my favorite -- I have many WIPs to finish, or a new one to start.  This little bundle of Les Amis is calling me.

This is a card for my friend I made for her little shower.  They didn't peek, so this card was to tell her she'll get her baby's quilt when baby arrives.

hey -- in a month like this one, even little sewing "counts" ;)

2) Finish the Union Jack quilt for Ty.  

These are the fabrics I'm using.
for a custom order

I drafted this Union Jack pattern, and was so proud of myself for paper piecing it, but it didn't match my pattern for some reason???  So I have to try again unfortunately... (sadly this segment doesn't line up with any of them on the flag, and since the friend I'm making this for is actually from England, I thought I would fix it)

3) And these three!  These quilts are all going to Lindsay at Eileen Quilts (at some point, you just realize they're not going to get done without a little help -- thank you Lindsay!)  She is donating the quilting for Chelsa's Scrappy Sprouts -- so sweet of her! ♥  I am so looking forward to sitting on the couch and binding these. :)

Thanks for linking up!  Sorry again about the late post!

As a Brit I am very jealous of your union jack stack of fabric there! Can't wait to see the quilt. And your baby card is such a lovely idea. :o)
