Projects for March are rolling along, sure to be in the 2012 UFO pile! These blocks I simply refer to as my "wonky blocks", but Wanda calls them "Cobblestones".  In any case, I am inspired by her quilts and will get out my scraps and make some more and try to put together a small wall quilt.

At a February retreat with the local guild, I managed to make all the blocks for a queen quilt using two balipops and a background fabric. I have to trim up and sash the blocks before I can assemble them.

I had this cut out and ready to go, so I put it together this past weekend, rather than put it away. It is almost a twin size and is hanging in the quilting queue. I might fuse something in the long white blocks.

These fabrics were a pack of 10" squares, again, made these blocks rather than put them away again.

I started this little Sue Spargo pincushion at the retreat. It is almost done, I am going to stuff it with fiber rather than sawdust for a little cushion. I am not very good at this handwork stuff, but I will keep trying.

So whatever happened to the project I was going to finish in February? Well, when I say "finished", I actually mean "ready to quilt." I did finish a few tops, will post photos soon.
