March RSC2014 Blocks!


Another successful month! I wasn’t sure I would get all my blocks finished with the man and the dog of the house both having to have surgery this month.  Both are doing well.  Tom will head back to work with the assistance of his crutches on Monday.  Max will be begging for long walks everyday, but there will be time to get going on  next months block as soon as Angela announces April’s color.  It is never too late to visit RSC2014 over at Angela's blog to see what others are doing with their scraps.

    1. Thanks Kathi! It is so nice to have everyone back to good health. My husband has another month of crutches but he can go back to work on Monday. Max seemed to recuperate faster, so glad the vet was able to save his life.

    1. I will be so glad, too! Keeping everyone on their medication schedule was rough. My husband can go back to work on Monday but will be on crutches for four more weeks. Max really healed quickly, the vet said dogs metabolism is faster than humans. I am so glad he was able to save Max.

  5. Oh so pretty! I think I need to make one of those 25 patch with a white star in there. One year plus drooling over them is enough. Time to go sew....

  7. Another beautiful star block, and more pickle dishes. Brilliant. I've now got the pickle dish pattern, so I'll be trying one next month, to see how it goes. Thanks for drawing my attention to it.

    1. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I like just working on three blocks a month. No real stress and gives me sometime behind the machine.

    1. They really are not as bad as they look. Only having to make three each month makes them very doable. Can't wait to see how all the colors will work together.

    1. This is my first attempt at making them. But they sure are fun and with all the colors of RSC it should make for a very interesting quilt
