Great job Precious!

I also like the St. Patricks' Day project- very festive!

About 95% done hand quilting an Eastery project- the Mystery Mayhem basket New Year's mystery from a couple of years ago. Even the binding is from stash, which just fits!

This months project was easy Big Grin. 2/3 of it was done in Feb., but I finished the hand quilting and binding the first week of this month.

I doubt I'll have anything in April, I got out Roll Roll Cotton Boll to finish. (king size Bonnie Hunter mystery) And finishing means hand quilting because me and that long arm in the other room are NOT getting along!

So here's what I've been working on and just finished last night: my 100 square block queen size quilt. We were in Texas for a week but before and after that, I've been working on this quilt every single day! machine quilting it on my regular little Janome! It is actually on our bed now and will stay there- this one isn't going to be given away!! (I know, I'm being selfish!)

I made a new tote bag for work. I had some panels with a coordinate fabric in my box of maybe I should give aways. Decided they would perfect. It has five pockets inside and a crossbody strap.

Awesome goodies everyone! So inspiring!
A couple friends and I had a virtual sew-in for National Quilting Day. I made this tablerunner from stash - the borders are purple, not blue. The flower patterns are from fatcat.com - I love her work!

Worked all day Sat. after finding material in my stash for the back and an sheet that was in my stash of sheets (had 2 of this one). Even had the webbing in my box of zippers & etc. Saw a picture on Pintrest and needed one for our newly adopted Lab so she can go with us. It does duel duty because I can move it from the car to the pick up. Here it is the dog hammock for the back seat.

...here is the other side! It has pockets inside, too!!

I can't tell you how many times I've dropped my extension table {it has a big chip on 1 of the corners and 2 of the legs are broke and duck taped together} so this tote was long over due to be made!! Going to a weekend quilt retreat apr 12 & can't wait to use it!!! Wink

Farm Girl, that picture looks a lot like the stars I did a while back. Nice to know I'm not the only one!!!

Sewlove, looks like we both had a thing for selvages this month. Looks like you used a lot more than I did tho! Good Job!

Lots of nice projects again this month.You ladies sure are creative. I like that dog hammock, goaskmom, It would be nice to have something that doesn't shift around when the dog moves around in the backseat. Might have to make one of these. Thanks for the idea.

For March stashbusting, I finished the Hexie Stashbusting Swap (due in May) with 100 hexies. And with just small pieces left, I pretty much used up the random pieces of fabric I had in piles. It felt really good to get those stacks mailed off with only the 30's Repro Hexie Swap to finish - Only 15 sets left in that one. I owned zero 30's fabrics so having an excuse to fabric shop was nice.

I have to say, handquilting bits of my stash really helped.

I can't show pics because it's the COF RR; but I used abt 19" of one fabric and 14" of another fabric.
I need to make some portable crib sheets for the church nursery. I plan to use some of my flannel stash. We have one 6 mos old and another baby to be born any day now. This way the mom's can switch the sheets between babies. This project should also bust a lot of my flannel.

So many cute projects. Sewlove - I love your tote bag. I need to add that to my "someday" pile. And, Goaskmom, I love your purse as well. I'm being drawn to salvage projects.

Very nice work ladies this month. Look at all of the fabric being used. Nice job on the row by row Lori.

This is a 30's string quilt that has been years in the making. All from stash. It is the first large quilt I have ever quilted on my sewing machine. I used a polyester batting that I had won. I prefer warm and natural, but it is done.

I made this for a wedding gift for my niece. The original pattern called for blues but I couldn't find enough that I really like so ended up using black, gray and whites and touch of red from my stash. I had purchased the white on white just to have and it worked for the background. I even pieced the backing with stash!

Good morning, ladies!

March was a very good stashbusting month for some of you Smile Let's see if we can't replenish that stash with 5 yds of pretty green fabric sent to me by Lumpy Tush as a prize for this month's winner. Thanks Lumpy Tush Smile

And without further ado, the winning name drawn from my pretty green basket is:
