Got It Done–March 2013

GID-MarchThis was the list of tasks I wanted to accomplish during the month of March.  Unfortunately, I did not get any of my bonus projects done.

March Knit Washcloth

March washcloth
This was a fun pattern to work.  I used 100% cotton variegated yarn and size 8 knitting needles.
The finished size is about 9-inches diameter.

Craftsy 2013 March BOM

This block is called “Economy Block” (for some unknown reason) and measures 17-1/2” square.
I don’t recall learning any new techniques in constructing this block, but the instructor did give an excellent lesson on drafting blocks from scratch.  She took us through the steps of drafting a 4-patch block in different sizes.  Drafting is right up my alley since that’s what I do for a living (when I work). 

March Baby Quilt

“Baby’s First Spring” is a 38” x 38” baby quilt.
I used bright cotton fabrics for the top, Warm N Natural cotton batting and flannel for the backing. 

Baby quilt top

“9-Patch Posies”
This quilt top measures 40” x 40”

“Bittersweet” quilt

I still have the binding to sew on this quilt and it will be done.  I really like how it turned out.


These knitted slippers are really easy to make.
Even though I put these in the washer together, one seems to be more felted than the other.  They are still too big, so I will try to felt them again.  Hopefully they will come out the same size.

Get It Done goals for April 

This coming month will be a busy one for me, but I'm hoping to be able to do some serious sewing as well.  We shall see.....
Here's my list:

I'm linked up with Patchwork Times.
Thanks for stopping by.
