Third Weekend In March Progress

Yes, I have officially started yet another BOM. This one is called Lillibet's garden and it should look similar to this in about a year. I desperately need to learn to Applique if I want this one to come out as nice as the picture. (This makes the official BOM count = 9) This was the first block for this quilt. I also cut all the squares for the sashing and will hopefully have enough backround fabric next month to be able to start sashing the blocks as I do them.

I bought some fabric and re-made the 2nd Stars in the Garden block. I screwed up the cutting on my first attempt and was alot more careful this time.
I also finished my re-make of my "Out of the Darkess" March block. I will be sure to be more careful on these in the future. These blocks have a zillion pieces and take alot of time to do.

I was also able to quilt a few more stars and hexagons on my Star quilt. I hate it more and more as I force myself to quilt it. It is puckering like crazy on the hexagons. I just want to finish it and call it done. I am hoping to have this one done before it gets to hot to quilt. I will take another picture when it is completly done.
