On Saturday, I finally made the March block for the Quilt Doodles BOM. Well, I say I FINALLY made it, but I actually first attempted it last weekend and it came out looking a mess! The green fabrics I picked for the tree were too close in value to the blue sky, so you could barely differentiate between the two. Has that ever happened to you? I find blue and green very difficult to work with for that reason--I think they look too similar to the eye.
So this time I dug through all of my scraps and pulled out some brighter greens that trend toward olive and lime tones and I think it turned out okay. I like the darker greens better in general, but they just weren't working for this project.
Next month, for April, we'll be making another row--I'm looking forward to seeing what it is. Here's a reminder of what I've done so far. February's block was a house (cabin)--
And we started off in January with a row of snowmen.
By the way, I took this month's photo using my brand new camera--with my new USB cord. And everything seems to work okay!
I apologize for neglecting my Scrap Basket Sunday friends last weekend. It seemed like there was a lot going on that weekend, including breaking my camera, and I felt off kilter the whole time. By the time I realized I'd missed Scrap Basket Sunday, it was Monday! So, here's the sign up for this week--and please feel free to link up for last week too if you posted a scrappy project on your blog back then.
I have not made any headway at all in quilting the Pie in the Sky quilt for the last few weeks, but I hope to get back to it soon. I hope you're doing better than I am! Happy scrapping!
