Craftsy BOM: March

Unlike my first block of the month project, I struggled with the colors on this one.  This is the free Craftsy Block of the Month class.  This month there was only one large 17 inch block to create.  For some reason, my block is slightly too large.  I don't want to cut it down any further because the points will be cut off when it's joined to the next block.  Here's what I ended up with:
I actually changed some of the fabrics several times before settling on this combination.  Here's the first three months:
Here's my problem:  I like all the blocks but the one's on the right are too vivid for the one's on the left.  So they are going to join my leftover Easy Street blocks to make a small crib sized quilt and I'll try again on the February blocks using the light colors.  The leftovers are on my design wall now with these blocks and really go amazingly well.  Now I just need to come up with some kind of pattern to put it all together.


  1. I really like the combination of colours in the lighter blocks, they show off the block design really well.

  2. I like blue and yellow together. Very pretty.

    1. Thanks! I've always liked that combination also.
