RSC catch up





Having been away for the month of February my first priority was to make my RSC  February blocks. The colour for the month was Aquamarine and surprisingly I had very little of this colour in my stash. So there will be no extra make in this colour. Here are my blocks.


The colour for March however is red and I have plenty of that. Here are my red blocks.


On my to do list for next week is a scrappy red sewing machine mat.

I am linking up with Scraphappy for Super Scrappy Saturday.

This week I have also been working on my Hexathon quilt and playing around in my sketchbooks.

It has been good to have a few days of sunshine and to be able to get out in the garden. There is plenty of spring colour around making it a pleasure to be out there.

You caught up with some beautiful blocks for February. It's not a color that I have a lot of either. Yet it is a beautiful color. Enjoy the red month. ;^)

Thanks for the lovely picture of the grape hyacinths in the sun. One of my favorite flowers, and they multiply so well. Your color reversal in the blocks is a good idea, twice as many to enjoy. Keep up the good work!

Your blocks look great. It is really challenging to use what you have. I like that about this SAL. Happy hexieing x

Both block sets are lovely. The reds have such a nice motion from the fabric placement.

More pretty blocks, I love the red ones.

Are all those flowers in your garden? So pretty. Not even the slightest hint of flowers here yet, although the weather has finally warmed up and we are hovering around 0 C both day and night. Spring is truly here but there is still tons of snow which makes everyone happy as with the warm weather and spring break for the school kids it is perfect for both downhill and cross country skiing.
