My 200th Post

Wow...I didn't know I would last this long.  It's been 2 years since I started blogging and this is the 200th post.  And I have 189 followers.  I'm going to have to think of some type of giveaway...more to come later.

This post is about what I want to try and accomplish during the Month of March.  Some are new, some are old, some are on going.


1.  Joined at the Hip (They haven't posted March pattern yet)

2.  Country Threads.  I showed a picture of the blocks on my last post.

3.  February's Sentimental Stitches Applique BOM.

This is suppose to be fusible applique but I decided to do needle turn applique.  It took forever because of the little pieces.  I signed up for this around the 14th of the month so I get the new patterns on the 14th.

4.  March Sentimental Stitches Applique Block.

5.  March Sentimental Stitches Pieced Block.

6.  Monday Mystery..March 4, 11, 18, 25  (Nothing to show as of yet)

7.  Patchwork Posse: Row 3, Row 4  (I posted a picture earlier in month)

8. Log Cabin Bow Ties: I'd like to get 10 more blocks done.

9.  Small Quilt Talk Quilt.

I joined the Small Quilt Talk Group on Yahoo.  Each month Kathy Tracy picks one of her quilts for the group to make.  This is Stripy Triangle.  I need to get it sandwiched and quilted by the end of the month.  I was really happy with the way it looks.  We were suppose to use ugly fabric.  But i only used a few..and they don't look ugly now.

10. Simply Charming Quilt a Long.

 This is my March/April quilt.  We make a quilt from the Simply Charming book every 2 months.  This needs to be basted and quilted by April.  But I hope to get it done this month.

I joined a group of quilters to do some UFO Busting.  Earlier in the month I picked my 3 to work on this month.

11. Hexagon Table Quilt.

I got all my rows finished and now I need to get them all sewn together, trim the sides, pin baste and then machine baste.  These are not colors I would normally choose.  The quilt is made from some charm squares I was given.

12. Primitive Primer.

13. EQ7 2011 BOM

14. I need to get a table runner that I have pin basted quilted.

15. Windmill Mini.

It is in the quilt frame and almost finished.  I am hand quilting it with #12 Pearle Cotton.

16. And in my spare time I want to get 4 more cupcake quilts made.  They are only 12" x 12".  

Well I guess I had better get going and see what I can get done on my list.  Stop by again and I will show you what I have done.

Have a great day

Hugs, Cathy

Happy 200th, Cathy!
That is some long list for March. Do you have extra days in your March that I don't know about? : )
That is a beautiful applique block!
Each of your minis is delightful, but I am especially partial to the one in KT fabrics. So warm and homey!

Wow Cathy... You've got quite a list going for you. Hopefully you get a lot done! Love your little quilt for Small Quilt Talk. I picked some already cut triangles to do but haven't looked at it sense! Sigh. Keep up the good work.

Cathy, can you tell me what quilt pattern the block with the hand is from? It looks familiar but I can't wrap my mind around what pattern it is.
