2013 NewFO Challenge - March update

I will begin at least one new project each month this year but I don't need to finish anything! 

This is the best challenge ever! I wrote about the 2013 NewFO Challenge at Cat Patches here. You can see what everyone else is doing here.

My March starts:
1. I started and finished School Colors, a quilt for a local student who is having some health issues.  
School Colors
2. At Lucky 2B Quilting Quilt Camp, I began a Buggy Barn table runner. This is my first Buggy Barn project. Although I'm unsure if I like the Buggy Barn technique, the finished quilt will be fine! This is an early photo. I just finished quilting it so all it needs is the binding which will be done in April.

Progress on earlier 2013 projects
1. I finished the Batik Lonestar quilt.
Finished Batik Lonestar.
2. I have all 9 blocks of Spring Bouquet machine appliquéd. The checkered inner border is finished. I am currently appliquéing the 4 border pieces and wondering how to quilt this!
Four checkered border pieces and one of four wide borders.

3. Here is the March block of the 5th Anniversary BOM Quilt at Lucky2BQuilting
Looks like this need a good pressing!

  7. I love your spring bouquet project - just lovely. You've been very busy this month with this great variety of projects!

  8. I am really enjoying retirement myself. Quilting was the major item on my retirement wish list. I had been collect fabric for quite a few years, but had never had enough time for using any of it. I have never heard of the Buggy Barn technique. Is there something unique about it? You've got some lovely projects here. Happy Quilting!

  9. Everything looks great! The School Colors quilt is very cool - what a treasure!

  10. Great starts and gorgeous finishes! Love your Batik Star!
