March show and tell

Happy spring everyone.   Doesn't it feel good to have some warm sun shining on you?   Yesterday was the first fairly warm day in Central Oregon and it was so refreshing. Hoping for  more days just like it.  

We had our monthly show and tell last week at our Woolies gathering and we had a few more participants than last month.  So, here we go.

First up, Leslie had 3 projects for us.   She's really been bitten by the wool craze.  It's fun to have another addicted friend!

She made these next two from the "101 Fabulous Small Quilts book "

Linda showed us her Buttermilk Basin goodies.

The last 2 blocks are the first blocks of a Halloween quilt.

Sandy was very productive getting this applique quilt completely finished.  It's designed by Norma from Timeless Traditions.   We both bought the kit at the same time....hers is finished...mine?   Not so much!

Hopefully you'll see mine sometime!

This next one is part of the Indygo Junction monthlies.    It's the March installment.

These next ones are mine.  

My friend Patty in Calif, gave me the kit for this one as a Christmas gift.   I just love it.   It's called "Simplicity" by My Red Door Designs

And this one is called "Pinwheel Puzzle" and is part of the Kindred Spirits club by the ladies from Yellow Creek Quilt Designs. 

Another monthly from Buttermilk Basin is this little one for May in the series called "Sew" Simple BOM. 

And another Buttermilk Basin pattern called "C is for Chicks".  I bought the kit from Karen at My Yellow Farmhouse quite a few years ago.   Woo Hoo, another kit busted!

Funny thing about this next one.   Last year during the holidays, I was addicted to all the wonderful pictures on Instagram where people were sharing their decorating.  I kept seeing a theme of red and white quilts, so told myself that I was going to make myself one in 2016.   While looking thru all my unfinished quilts, I came upon an almost finished red and white Irish Chain.   I honestly don't even remember making it.   (Not good!).   Anyway, I got it finished in a day and off to the quilter it went.   

Like the one Sandy showed above, I did 2 of the Indygo Junction monthlies.   We both got the kits from Karen.   You can tell what months they are for.  LOL 

I think it was a very productive month for the group.   I'm continuing weeding through all my UFO's and kits.   I'm bound and determined to make a dent in the pile by the end of the year.  

Can you believe that tomorrow is April?  I'm really ready for some warmer weather but Springtime in Bend is pretty iffy.   Sun one day, snow the next.   You never know what you're gonna get.   Keeps us on our toes. 

See you next month. 

Hugs, Anne
