CGGQC March Projects

UPDATE 3/7 @ 4PM
I just finished quilting THE Rounneries.  I love this quilt.  I'm sitting on the couch with all of it on my lap - taking this picture.  Ok, I'm starting on the binding.

UPDATE 3/6 @ 5PM
The Big Blue Bouquet is quilted.  Now all I have to do is trim & put on the binding!

UPDATE 3/4 @ 615PM
The top is pressed.  I love BOUTIQUE!  I love this top.  Ok, now on to the binding...

UPDATE 3/3 @ 7PM
I had the right yardage for each of the 5 fabrics.  I followed the cutting instructions.  I am ready to sew!  Maybe I'll have a picture of the top tonight...since it is a SUPER, easy top! LOL!  I love this pattern!!!

UPDATE 3/2 @ Late
The fabric has been cut!

 UPDATE 3/1 @ 10PM
All the fabric has been pressed.  Now the pattern (Fons&Porter, Fall2009, pg 56) I'm using only requires 5 different fabrics but I ordered 6.  I still have time to figure out which ones I want to use.

 I would have worked with this fabric during the party but out of all the packages that were misdirected, it had to be this one! LOL! And Kelly did everything she could to get it to me on time.  That's ok, because I will be using the 'Serendipity' (aka CHUNKY MONKEY) pattern to do my sister's birthday quilt.  So, since I'm here, I'd like to list my March projects:
1. Quilt & bind Rouenneries
2. Piece, quilt & bind Boutique
And the best part?  I just have to get these 2 done before we leave for Biloxi on the 10th (mom's birthday)!!!  No pressure...LOL!?!?!?!  If anyone is interested in seeing if I get these done in time or not (or is taking bets),  I will update on this post so I don't have to start a new one.  Ok, the clock is ticking...

Hope everyone has a great week!
