These are the BOM for March. The two at the top are for the Louisiana BOM and the bottom is for the Seasonal Delights BOM. I decided to get them done while I had everything out already. Now I'm glad I did them. I just have the Thimble berries BOM left to do for March. Don't know when I'll be able to get to those but I will do it before the end of the month. The crawfish was very challenging. It is fused and machine appliqu├ęd. It had a lot of small areas to stitch. I'm happy with how it turned out. The fabrics in this kit are fabulous hand dyes and batiks. It blows me away every time I open up a monthly packet. Today I'm sewing up blocks for a new beginner quilt class I will be teaching in May. My SIL came over last night with her sewing machine she got for Christmas and I was able to show her how to thread it and make bobbins. I taught her a few other things about her machine too, like how to set it for some of the decorative stitches she has. The best part is I talked her into taking my beginner quilt class. It will be so much fun. Two of my SIL's and a friend of one of them. Will we get any work done! I hope so. I want another quilter in the family besides my MIL. We could have our own mini quilt retreats when we get together, without the men of course. That's all for today. Have a great quilty day!

Quilt til your arm falls off...
