Last Sunday in March

I stole some time in my sewing room this weekend and cut & stitched block 2 of "Lovebird Lane" The cutting and piecing directions on these blocks has been a breeze, they are written very well.
I FINALLY finished the last block for my "Vintage Valentine" quilt. This baby took more than a month to prep and stitch. As usual, my camera took terrible pictures. I am really thinking about investing in a real camera. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.
I also finished cutting the "Cracked Pots" quilt that Ranette and I are going to start. They were the confusing cutting instructions I have ever come across. I was totally baffled and wasted a lot of time and fabric. It is all cut now so hopefully the piecing will go much easier. I did manage to piece a few of the houses and those were a breeze. I will take a picture when I have all 20 blocks done.

I finished almost everything on my March list. I am still working on my "Baltimore Bunny" block and I think I may have it done before Thursday. :)

I hope you all have a great week with plenty of time to play.

Vintage valentine is gorgeous! Both are beautiful, really.

At least all your fabric is cut! That's half the battle! :-)
