New Batiks for March

March has come in like a Lion

 Lets hope is goes out like a lamb. But since I am house bound, with nothing but time. Perfect for sewing and staying warm.
 Just in are these lovely Java Batik Fat Quarter Bundles for $25. 
I have a few projects that I am working on, I showed you my village in the previous post. I am also doing a half square triangle block of the month challenge with I am using Vintage Keepsake from Riley Blake for my Project. Such beautiful fabrics.

These are my 3 January blocks. I love how they are turning out. Reminds me of days gone by and the slower pace that life seemed to have. The colors are so calming and yet give the feel of fresh ironed linens.

 Below are my two February Block. They have been so much fun to make. I took a six inch square of white and one of the Vintage Keepsake fabric. Sewed all the way around the outside and then cut on the diagonal both ways. Then I squared the half square units up, ironed them and I did it for each piece in the bundle so that I have a whole pile of half square triangle units. Then when the new blocks come out all I have to do is sew them into the larger block. Doesn't take long at all.

In April I have something fun worked up for Asian fabric, my sister Barb at Bejeweled Quilts is making one also and my daughter is making the cutest mug rugs for April, so stay tuned, you are not going to want to miss the fun.

Remember the mug rug for March is the blue Anvil and if you leave a comment I will pick a winner for a blue charm pack and the Mug Rug.
