I have decided on my March Projects...there are 8 of them...some easier than others.

Click to enlarge.

1. First up is the JELLY ROLL QUILT ALONG. I believe there are 2 blocks a month for this. I originally was using different fabrics...but when I found the brown polka dot fabric...I just knew I had to use my HELLO BETTY jelly roll. 2. SIMPLE THYMES BOM for March.
3. This project is a little complicated. This picture is from a show I went to in 1998. I have wanted to make a similar quilt ever since...SO...I think I will combine blocks from PINWHEEL PARTY and OLD RED BARN'S PINWHEEL quilt along with some STAR blocks and try to achieve something like this picture. I don't have a clear plan as yet, hopefully as I start making some of the pinwheels and stars it will come together. We will see!
4. 5. and 6. No pictures for these right now.
I will stipple 2 blocks on my BEYOND THE COLOR PURPLE quilt.
I will FINISH the circles quilt...
I will make 2 labels for my FOLK ANGEL and CIRCLE quilts.

7. I have 4 quilts that need the thread clipped, especially on the back, when I finish up my Circle quilt. This may not sound like much.....but there are many starts and stops quilting on 2 of these quilts...you know those 1/4" tags that are left by the auto thread cutter.

8. FINALLY...I got all the blocks back from the AROUND THE WORLD QUILT, hosted by SummerSadie. I need to figure out sashing and layout. Not sure how far I can get on this. It is the last project I will tackle if I have the time.

So that's it...list looks daunting, but doable!



  1. Wow I am tired just looking at that list. But it also motivates me to get my butt in gear and get my list started. Can't wait to see how much you get done.

  2. sheeze, do you plan on giving up sleeping.

  3. Good Golly - you're going to be a busy girl this month! But, you have some fun projects planned (aside from trimming those threads LOL)! I'm looking forward to seeing the quilt you are going to put together from combining those projects! Go Anita!!!!

  4. OOOOOHHHH! The fabrics you are using for the jelly roll quilt along are just too cute!

  5. You have quite a list of projects for March. I have been printing out the Simple Thymes blocks but have not started on them. I will be following your progress this month on getting things done!

  6. Those are all fantastic projects! I can't wait to see them all ... You are going to be a busy girl!
    Happy sewing

  7. Fabulous list of March projects. I'll be cheering you on. You can do it. :-)

  8. That's quite an ambitious list. Hope you have lots of fun sewing so we can see more beautiful quilts!

  9. You have quite a list, but you will have so much fun with it all. I love Hello Betty and can't wait to see your quilt when you are finished.

  10. Your quilts are so beautiful!
