Even though we had another batch of snow yesterday, I can just feel the earth "waking up" slowly, getting ready for spring to take over.
I needed to feel some "spring" inside, so I made that cute Shamrock Coaster, that Amanda, The Patchsmith, designed for March! This is a FREE pattern!!

|I used scraps for the back of the coaster and the binding|
|I sewed the binding by machine, and took time to iron all of it carefully|

I made this Buckwheat block using the paper pieced pattern, and just love it!
These are going to make my quilt look more scrappy, as they are introducing some new colors... citron and a different shade of blue, in some DS Quilts fabric by Denyse Schmidt.

I really like how the solid dark colors look in these blocks.
Here are the blocks laying out:

I do enjoy making these blocks, in between other projects.
Elaine, The Summercrafter, is making the FWSQ in her weekly series Friday Night Block Party. You can see a whole bunch of FWSQ blocks in my Flickr group here.
