350 Block Report - March

We are in to March already.   This month's total is 31.  So what have I been up to during March.

I have been busy with binding projects again but I did manage the following in between binding jobs.

1 Psychedelia block

I pieced the second last charity quilt with some help from Jo. Only 2 for me

I pieced the Australian themed quilt 3 for this one.

Two large star blocks and 4 small star blocks for a total of 6.
1 test block plus 8 extra for a secret project. Shh don't tell anyone that you had a peek.

4 basket blocks

This month's total is 24. A few short of this month's total but who knows what April will bring. With events being cancelled, I know I will have some extra sewing time coming my way.
The year's total is 147.
Until Next Time

One Monthly Goal- March's Goal Completed.

I had a rough month in February and failed to complete my goal in February. So I had to add that to March's goal. See my original post here.

First to be completed is the binding on my Dragon quilt before I can move on to the next binding job.

Then I got in to the next charity quilt binding.

Since I was on a binding roll I got stuck in to the next binding job.

There is 1 more ready to bind. Plus one more to baste, quilt and bind

I have linked my post with Elm Street Quilt post, so pop over and check out how everyone went this month.

Until Next Time

Some Ruler work Quilting Fun

We had a ruler work workshop on Sunday, which gave me the chance to do some work on one of my projects.
 This table runner is part of an upcoming workshop. So it's good to get to the quilting.

 The back of my table runner
How cool is that Spinfex flower looks! I am loving this one. So I can guarantee I will be using it again soon. I was using Glide thread Turf which is a shade darker than the fabric. Glide thread Pearl was used in the grey sections.
 Once the quilting was done I was ready for the binding which I had cut at the time of making the project.
 Oops I think I have a problem. Damn how can I be short. Double damn there is no more in the shop. Note to oneself make sure you cut one extra strip, to avoid this happening again.
 A hunt in my scrap stash revealed a 1 1/2" strip of the fabric only, so I found another green and cut a matching piece. Sewing them together length ways gave me the 2 1/2" strip to fill the gap.
Look what happens when you fold the binding back. It's likes magic. You won't know that I was short unless you have read my blog post.
