Early start on March

As you can see this is the very rough beginning to March...  I'm just starting to add the first of a cluster of fuchsias.  I did the hummingbird on felt with Krienik metallics and it is just pinned on for now...  I had to stop on the suffrage quilt because I was seldom home and this one was easy to carry when I have to be away so I got an early start on March... I have great plans for lower right but am saving it for last....

I should add that I'm using organza ribbon for the fuchsias.... In past years I've bought several large lots of silk ribbon on e-bay and usually included are packets of organza ribbons which I find hard too use... But I saw these gorgeous fuchsias  by Di Van Niekerk in SA and it looked like she used organza ribbon.. Unfortunately most of my organza ribbons are colors hard to overdye...

I love the work you've done so far and the colors are perfect.

Beautiful start on March! Love the humming bird and the laces. The only thing I've found the organza ribbon to be good for is bees' wings, so I look forward to seeing your fuchsias.

Hi Sweetie .... that block is looking great and I just love the two seams .... especially the lower right one. The fuchsia looks wonderful too. Funny how hummingbirds and fuchsias always seem to go together so well.
