*Never any pressure. The choice is always yours as to how many blocks you have time to make and we know life gets in the way sometimes.
*It is a great place to practice and get ready for joining a Swap.
*It is FUN TO WIN and/or see a PAL WIN and be able to WIN.
*If you make a block to keep you could have a Sampler Quilt at the end of the year :) :)

March is a wonderful month filled with the anticipation of SPRING and EASTER. I took a look at the Tennesee Waltz Quilt but then saw that this Quilt add a different dimension and character to it.
* Perfect time to destashing those small squares for some 4-patches you can make in your sleep - Square UP after making.
* trying the Magic 8 (10.50" Sqaure) or Magic 4 method of HST's (5.25"x10.25") - Square UP after making.
* ADDING a Section of the block we have not done in quite a while. You will need to purchase or borrow the Triangle in a Square Ruler which I hope many of you already have. It is well worth the investment as there are other quilts you can use it with. Amazon Prime: 2day free shipping. Fast/The least expensive.
** TIP: Pay close attention to the way she lays her seams.
** Pay attention to your .25" seam allowance. THEY REALLY MATTER
** MAKE A PRACTICE BLOCK!!!! It is well worth it as there is no wiggle room in this 12.5" block.

SO - ARE YOU READY!!!!! Let the Spring BEAUTY shine in your fabrics!!
My colors are not as dark and bright as they are in the picture PLUS there is a goof I need to fix. Thinking I might need to go to JoAnn's for some fabrics. I am now all out

BLOCK: 2 Block set: ONE with HST's and ONE with 4-Patches
FABRIC: Please use 1930's first. Mints, Raspberry, Yellows - Endless Possibilties!!!! I do not want to stiffle anyone from joining so please share anything that is a Medium Light and comes close to a 1930's look.
STARS: MAY have a different center as long as it is the same color with White added.
BACKGROUND: I used a PinDot White on White

* PRESS your Blocks
* Pin or stitch your Address Label to FRONT Corner
* Pin sets together (DO NOT STITCH)
* Place ALL blocks in ONE LARGE BAGGIE.
* PLEASE add $2-$3 to help with Shipping to the WINNERs

WAYS to RECEIVE your WINNING tickets ...
* 1 ticket = Let me know you are interested
* 1 ticket = Post a picture of your set of 2 blocks
* 2 ticket = for each SET OF 2 you mail
* 2 tickets = Post a TRACKING NUMBER by the 26th
* 1 ticket = (optional) What Spring Flowers do you plant or just LOVE?

* IF ANYONE has the PATTERN PLEASE post this info. We might need your help :)
* PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTION!! Never any dumb ones. I know many will have the answer to help you.

Good morning-afternoon ALL

Izzy - Yup! I laid that block out and it stared me right in the face saying "WHAT, you have me going the wrong way!" LOL. Easy fix is right. We will miss you but I hope life settles a bit so you are not so overwhelmed. Busy but peaceful is the way to go.

Katy - Happy news you found the book :) :) Hope you find the ruler. It is definitely a good one to have. I do not know why I have not made more of these blocks. Once I got going it was hard to stop. Not going to tell you how many 4-Patches and HST's I have - LOL!!!!!

Lori - Thrilled I pick an All-time favorite for you!!! It is a FUN one and not as hard as I thought. ENJOY stitching up some beauties!!!

Valerie - I will miss you this month but totally understand you moving in of your Dad and not being able to get to your quilting or other joys. Prayers for peace and joy to find you in the little moments.

I am off to make 2 blocks (One heart and my sample for the Modern to make sure it is the right colors) and then I have the Church Newsletter to do that is due today.

One done...5 to go. I had to rip out seams, because I sewed the WOW wrong. I should have paid more attention to what I was doing. Lori

Hi gals

Need a little help please!

I do have the Egg Money book... some where.
I found perfect fabric and watched most of the video, but I need to know how to cut the pieces.

I have El's triangle rulers, so cutting those are done, but the little pieces that make the star points.... are those 6x3 rectangles cut on diagonal? Is the center block 4.5"? I know the 4 patch is 2.5", and the HST should finish at 4.5"

Just need to check my measurements.

Hi Mary
Yes the rectangles are 3x6. Fabric wrong sides together. Lay both rectangles next to each other and cut from lower right to upper left on both.

Center block is 4.5" cut
4-patch is 4.5" unfinished
HST is 4.5" unfinished

Square up all sections to 4.5" before piecing them into a block. DO NOT UNDERCUT. There is no wiggle room so watch the 1/4" seam allowance. It might need some tweeking here.

YEA Mary and Lori - Wonderful blocks. Love the colors of the Stars and the scrappy of the HST's and the 4-patches! A GREAT MONTH this will be :)

Katy - Lovely happy to hear Shirley is joining us this month. Thanks for letting me know :)

Sonya - If you can join us GREAT but if you do not have the fabrics and want to sit out that is perfectly OK. No pressure ever here :) :) :)
