The project number chosen for March is #3 and I'm so relieved that it is not my other BOM project! I'm burnt out from complicated piecing and need a "breather" by way of a simple project to work on.
My No. 3 this month is a Thanksgiving table runner that I started in 2011. It was a project in the October/November 2011 issue of The Quilter magazine. I was really drawn to the design because it used batik fabrics and I like the dimension that they added to the pumpkins and leaves. They remind me of the Cinderella pumpkins and turban squash.
I was wondering if any of you subscribe to one or more quilt magazines each month? I have to confess that while I don't subscribe to ANY magazines, I will occasionally look through them when I'm in the magazine aisle, but I rarely purchase one unless there's several unique projects that I really, really like.
I have taken many classes and practiced but I am not skilled at FMQ, so MY machine quilting is done with a regular presser foot. I then follow lines or designs that I've marked on the quilt top.
For my February project I had chosen the Vintage Memories quilt and I now have all of the blocks finished. I only had Block #8 and 9 left and now that those are complete, I will be able to piece the quilt top in between projects. I'm really committed to finishing this quilt THIS YEAR!
