March Finishes

It didn't feel like I got much accomplished this month, but apparently I did get a few things done.  The cake stand quilt block top was completed.  I put it on the longarm to quilt it, but just couldn't do it...so I basted it and it will be hand quilted.
I finished the last block of my block of the month...now to make the sashings and cornerstones, which are also pieced.

This quilt was not on the list.  I volunteered to make a quilt for a 14 year old girl through Margaret's Hope Chest.  They had asked for volunteers for their Wrapped in Hope program, which makes quilts for the birthdays of children of inmates in different areas.  This quilt will go to a young lady whose birthday is in May.  It's all finished, just needs a label and I will post it at the end of the month so she has it in time for her big day.


I didn't get my tower of fabrics untied, let alone made into a quilt, nor did I finish my AMG block, although I did make substantial progress on it!  One thing I did make that wasn't on the list was this loaf of Easter Bread.  It was delicious with a cup of tea this morning!  I wish all of you a happy and blessed Easter!

That Easter bread looks wonderful! I'm like you -- some quilts just call for hand-quilting -- that's definitely one of them -- good for you!!!

You have gotten a lot done. Thanks for the info I think I will check into the organization. Have fun hand quilting! Can you save me a space for machine quilting end of April or Begining of May? I am horrible at machine quilting but that is why God created quilters like you.
