          [QUOTE=Lynnanne;n892770]Helen, it’s just so beautiful…I really admire you![/QUOTE]

          Lynneanne, Thank you. I always love hearing your comments. My secret is to always pick the things I love, the
          colors, the critters, the putting different patterns together to make it what I want. You can take any pattern, even ones
          you don't necessarily care for and just tweek it so much that it turns into something you love. Sure have fun doing it this way.
          April block I am thinking golden mantel chipmunk and daffodils. Saw the first chipmunk since winter just yesterday. Finally starting to feel like spring in North Idaho.
          If you are doing any quilting keep posting pictures of what you are working on. HelenW

            It sounds like fun! I’m behind on the Garden quilt because I was making a Double Wedding Ring queen size quilt for my son and his girlfriend (they aren’t getting married but I love the pattern). I’m excited to get back to the BOM now though. Enjoy your spring!

            This is my first applique project and I am struggling to keep up. I've got this moth's block glue basted and it is ready for hand stitching. I can def see an improvement from the previous months' applique and I was confident enough this month to change a few things in the pattern to suit my taste. Yea, me!

            However, over the weekend, I was trimming my dog tooth boarders for month 1 and I cut the width too short. I was tired, blah blah blah. You know the story.... I've got my fix figured out, so I will work on that this weekend.

            For my quilt, I've used contemporary to feedsack fabrics, and I really like the mix. Overall, I am enjoying the process, learning/refining new techniques, and watching my improvements. I've been hoarding feedsacks for years. I FINALLY got the courage to use them.

            I've cut out all the little pieces for the dresden plate. This is my next challenge!!! lol

            I love seeing everyone's progress. Y'all are an inspiration. Sending big hugs to my beautiful quilter friends.

            Have a great day from Montgomery, AL.

              Shannon K., Nice work, you have great color-sense and I really like your fussy-cut vase fabric. If it's any consolation, I have month 1 done, all of the parts and pieces done for month 2 - just haven't stitched them together. And I have yet to even begin month 3... I am doing appliqué by hand (using Appliquick tools and QS select print and piece fuse light), but as post-pandemic life ramps up again, I am finding it difficult to keep up! Know that you are not alone in your progress and quilting is not a race! Keep moving forward and enjoy the process...-terri

                    Here’s mine so far but I am way behind! I did see your double wedding ring and it helped me get encouraged to do it. It’s finally done. I split the batting like you suggested to fit it into my machine. Thanks!
