March 2022 OMG Update

I wasn’t home to declare a March OMG goal, but I have one. I wanted to complete all of the March 365 Challenge blocks.

And so I have.

365 Challenge

I have also finished most of the STID (stitch-in-the-ditch) on my daughter’s patriotic quilt. The majority of the basting pins have been removed.

I shared about this quilt in this post.

The quilt sandwich is stable now (the layers are secure), and some of the weight is lightened without those pins.

The quilt is now marinating while I decide how to quilt it.

Most of the snow is gone, and the past couple of days have been warm (upper 50’s and 60 degrees). I am so excited to be home to enjoy spring! I’ve been out raking and discovering lots of spring bulbs popping up!

I am linking up with OMG at Elm Street Quilts. Hop on over there and check out the wonderful projects that others are doing!

Quilt On!

  1. Cudo’s for your 365 quilt and I like the Patriotic quilt, do not remember seeing it before, but who knows, mind is going with all the great things happening in our world (a little sarcasm). Hugs


  2. Fantastic progress, Laura! I have to ask – what do you have in mind for the backing fabric on the first one pictured?


  3. Nice progress this month! Most of the snow is gone here, too, but more in the forecast for this week. Thankfully, it won’t last long at this time of year!


  4. Interesting collection of blocks. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them.


  5. You have had a very productive month. Some of those blocks look very detailed. Well done.


    • Thank you, Janice…yes, most of the blocks are only 3.5″ and some do have a lot of little pieces! Hopefully, I am learning to be more accurate, but I still need Jack ever present. 🙂


  6. Good job! I can’t wait to see how you quilt the Patriotic Quilt – It is gorgeous.


  7. I say that’s fabulous progress Laura! Your blocks are looking great in yellow!


  8. You did great with the March blocks and your in the ditch quilting. Are all the blocks the same size on your daughter’s quilt? Thinking you could pick one or two motifs and alternate them. There are so many choices with quilting motifs now, it is nearly impossible to pick!


  9. Yes, Kathleen…all the blocks are the same size. I was thinking the same thing as you. The thing that holds me back the most is how to quilt the silhouettes. Quilt the background only? Quilt the whole thing, but what about thread color? 🙂


  10. Good for you meeting goals you didn’t even set! lol When we have snow here in Alabama it melts later in the day the same day it falls.
