Good afternoon ladies,

Thought I should post the March challenge, but as it's over half way through the month, I'm wondering whether it should be a March/April challenge. Let me know what you think when you've seen the post!

I would like to start 'With spring in the air...' but if like me you're indoors, hiding from the snow with a fire (and three sons and a husband glued to the Six Nations) then I doubt you'll be feeling too 'springlike'!

But, for this months challenge you will need to Think Spring! and create a spring inspired 12'' block. Whether it's through colour or design, the overall feel should reflect the lighter brighter days that are hopefully on their way.

You can of course do what you wish with the finished block, but Rosemary has very kindly offered to assemble the finished blocks and make a Linus quilt. But I will leave that to you all to decide.

So, let me know your thoughts on how long the challenge should last and I will finalise the deadline!

Emma x

Sounds like a great idea Emma.......perhaps it might be better to give everyone a bit longer then the end of march! I already have a couple of ideas! Best Rosemary

Should we have a theme if the blocks are being made into a quilt?

I know what you mean Brenda..... but I think I can probably use all the blocks in some way! In any case.. not everyone will be sending me blocks! Best Rosemary

Hi,

The deadline is the 30 April for this challenge, and you may enter more than one block if you wish.

Brenda, I think a theme would be a good idea if you are sending to Rosemary, but I would suggest perhaps more of a colour palette than a theme. As it's Spring based, I would suggest loosely keeping to greens, yellows and pinks as the main colours which all work well together. However within that, pops of other shades such as lilacs and blues will work too. If you aren't sending to Rosemary, then it's whichever colours you fancy.

How does that sound?

Emma

I love your rabbits and daisies in the nine patch Rosemary.

An easy design which lets the materials designs shine through. Very pretty. Sue*rose

Thanks Emma. I have an idea of what I would like to do and I also have a "Leftover" block from a previous project. I know it's a long way, but I would like to send the blocks to Rosemary, it's such a good cause.

Love the fat sheep Rosemary... he probably just loves to eat then falls over and can't get up.
