Tree of Life - March blocks

 Time to share the March blocks for the tree of life stitch along before I forget again.  My set of blocks are missing the bottom triangle blocks because I didnt have the re-sized triangle pattern at the time I made these.  Denise has since made the file of triangle blocks for me,  resized to fit the 3 inch finished blocks  I am making.  I will share those along with April blocks next month.   Thanks again Denise.

I'm linking up with Denise at For the Love of Geese with my March blocks.  Be sure to visit there to see who else is participating in this project.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a safe and happy week.

RSC21 - Blues

 I made the light blues blocks for this month and since all the scraps were out everywhere, I made a dark blue set for later in the year.

I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy today  and with Cynthia for Oh Scrap on Sunday.  Be sure to visit these sites to see what other quilters are sharing.

Tumbler # 21-1 Silver & Multi

 This tumbler quilt was started last year, a challenge posted at Heartstrings and/or Stashbusters.  I cut from the scrap bins with the 4 inch tumbler die.  I used a silver print for the alternate blocks; sewed them all together and then it hung nicely on a hanger for a few months.  I like it when viewing from a distance,  but up close, it just looks all silver.

It finishes at 50 x 70.  I quilted 1/2 inch from the seams.  it went very smoothly.

I used cotton batting and a thick light gray fleece on the back.  I especially like the look of allover quilting the echo lines created when looking at the back.

March Table Runner Challenge

 I really love this table mat.  It measures 17 inches across.  The center is a printed block from the Apricot & Ash fabric panel.  I have some fabric that complimented it so well;  the greens were perfect.  I will be gifting this one too; unless the recipient doesnt like it, then she is welcome to return it, no questions asked!  LOL

Here is a photo of the back, simply  to enjoy the quilting. It is a light beige batik.
