March Goal


My One Monthly Goal for March will be to finish up my Flower Block Quilt Along quilt with Bea and Cecile.  The deadline is in April, so I would like to have this project done a bit ahead of time since I have a retreat happening later in that month.

While I was  digging for an inner border fabric, I found this gold and blue stripe in my stash. It looks pretty cute close up, but I'm not so sure about it at a distance.



It kind of reads as green when you step back from the design wall. I guess that would be okay as there as a lot of green in the applique blocks---something to ponder before making a final decision. I may have to re-dig and find an all gold fabric--probably a better choice. 

This is a "bonus" goal.
These quilts have been hanging untouched on this ladder in our entryway for years. There is quite a nice layer of dust accumulated on them! I've been meaning to swap them out for at least a year--hopefully I can motivate myself to do it this month!

  1. This is such a great quilt! Love the checkerboard effect of the 25 patches between the pretty flower blocks.
    The border looks fine to me, even if you can't tell from a distance that it is a blue/gold stripe. But if it bothers you, you might find something that you like better.
    Love that ladder full of quilts!

  2. I love this quilt. The first time I saw it was years ago in American Patchwork and quilting. I recently just bought the book and this quilt is on my bucket list. I love the fabrics you have chosen. Hugs

  4. The use of your brighter blues seems like you're reaching for spring. Your extra tall quilt ladder is a wonderful place to display your beautiful quilts. Have fun deciding what to show.

  5. Beautiful! I just love your fabric choices. I think the inner border looks great, but if you are like me, you will look at other options until you are sure of your choice. Your ladder is such a great way to display your quilts.

  15. Love your change the quilts on the ladder goal. It is such a doable goal. IDE like to say quit reading and go do it! But ... your flower block quilt is lovely. Sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect inner border. I hope your stash “coughs” one up for you.

  16. Love the combination of applique and the blue checkerboards! Such a happy quilt. If you find a gold fabric you like better for the inner border you might consider the stripe for the binding. I'm rather partial to striped bindings. They give such a whimsical look to quilts.
