I completed my March block early because I didn't want to be behind. So far I have been able to keep up. To help me out I have set up a list of primary colors for each month: I want the blocks to be distinctive even if/when I have to repeat some fabrics. I have really enjoyed working on this and have found that I can also use parts of orphan blocks (cut into strips). My DH's birthday is in March so for the 22nd block down I used part of a hunky cowboy (don't I wish) fabric. Just my little inside joke.

Each block represents a project I was working on that day.
This is February's block.....

Since March is almost half over I better start thinking of March ..... or better yet not thinking and just doing!
Happy March everyone and I can't wait to see more of what everyone is doing!!♥

I'll be going with the semi-obvious and using greens (and golds) for March; I'm thinking of doing free-style HSTs this month. If I'm lucky and actually do a little bit of planning, March and February combined will end up to be as long as my mega-January block!

I also worked on March, and this last photo shows up to March 17! My plan is to continue giving each month a colour. January was blue and white, thinking of the cold and snow. February was pink and red, for love and Valentine's Day. March, I chose green for St. Patrick's Day.
I am enjoying seeing everyone's updates too! I can't wait to see more.

Just wanted to stop in and give an update on my February section all finished. I posted on my blog, Spring Water Designs more details of what strips are included.
The Calendar Quilt has been a really relaxing change of pace project for me. I have no plan on how I'm going to set it, I'm just letting it become something all by itself. We'll see what happens :)
Enjoy your day!

The first picture is of January and February side by side, and the second picture is of January on top of February, and March alongside. I can say I am loving this, and it is going to make one heck of a couch blanket for the family!!!
P.S. you might notice from picture one strips with writing on them, and picture two they are all gone, it's disappearing ink, no just kidding, I was not liking the look of the writing, so I replaced the strips with new ones, and I am learning how to embroider, or shall I say I have the stuff but have not started trying to teach myself, (if any of you know of great resources online, please let me know). I have 9 more months to learn and make this look right.

i'm a little ahead of the game...which is WAY better than me being behind!!!
Well here is a picture of the strips I have gotten done..I thought that I seem to be moving right along I have marked where the month ends ...I still have some patches I want to add this really is fun....and i love that there is really no measuring skills...lol
And I really am a bit embarrassed that my poor little thing is so how do you say crooked....lol...but as we know it is the love I feel that matters....but seriously look at the others oh my gosh.so so so straight and well measured.....;-)....lol....well I just figure it really makes everyone else look fab!!!!!!
Love you all and your rulers......and note the material I added to the sides where I knew not what I did........and no I don't drink.....lol
I’m sorry, but I haven’t forgotten this challenge. I will make a post about February during the weekend, I don’t think I will manage to finish it before that. Now and then there isn’t enough hours to do all the things I plan.

This is my block for January. I'm really struggling with this, as I'm not sure I like the way the finished block looks. I'm considering either going in a different direction or withdrawing from the challenge. I blogged about it over on my blog made by lisah. I'd LOVE some input from you all.
