I'm pretty sure my sewing machine and my iron have missed me this month. I haven't touched either for weeks and weeks.
Night and Day, as I hand quilt this baby quilt. You know the song, "Night and Day, you are the one. You, only you, under the sun," or something like that. This quilt and I have become very good friends even though some of my fingerprints may never return. But I love it! (The photo below may show the colors a little more accurately.)
One Monthly Goal for March was to get the blocks sewn together and applique the circles. I'm so pleased to say that I've exceeded that a dozen times over by getting the quilt layered, basted, and most of it quilted. I have 7 of what look like half blocks around the edges and 2 corner blocks to finish hand quilting. If I continue as I've begun it will be finished before the baby arrives. I keep telling myself I can't let up the pressure till it's all quilted, though.
My last decision for this quilt will be choosing binding. I can't decide between the fabric I used for the sashing or a lighter color. Not sure yet.
This volunteer tulip appeared near our peony plants a few weeks ago. I haven't been out to look at it but I think it's probably about to bloom by now.
