WIP Wednesday 3.6.13

Here's what happened this week:

I finished the quilt made with the swap blocks from my local quilt guild.
I completed and mailed my MMMRR for February.  I have received my mini for March. (no photo)
I completed the Quilt Doodle Designs BOM for March.

I also completed the During Quiet Play -- And Sew On BOM -- Spoolin' Around
AND I won a scrap bundle for my February block. Whohoo!!!

I finished steps 3 & 4 of the Scrappy Swoon Along.  I decided to try to complete this quilt in March.  This is my 2013 A Lovely Year of Finishes goal for March.

WHOHOO! I completed my block for the Block Swap Adventure early this month!!!!
My partner was Melissa. She requested a cat block with purple background. Here's her sneak peek.

I'm caught up for the month with the QA at Terry's Treasures.  Above is my two rows sewn together.
