I had quite a few accomplishments and some failures. :-)

An Accomplishment:
Two Simple Abundance Piece of Cake quilts finished and delivered to two special people.


An Accomplishment & Failure:
Just A Breeze (Aster Manor Jelly Roll Project) - not quilted (ran out of batting - sigh)


An Accomplish & Failure:
Aviary Turnover project (not quilted)


An Accomplishment:
March Year of the Schnibble - Roundabout w/Make Life by Moda (quilted & bound)



An Accomplishment:
Rabbits Prefer Embroidery - quilted (binding needs to be sewn down)

A Bonus Accomplishment:
Year of the Schnibble - Picnic - quilted (binding needs to be sewn down)


Another Bonus Accomplishment:
Frosted Squares by The Pattern Basket with Moda's Gingham Rose (ready to be quilted)


Another failure (no picture):
Didn't quilt my State Fair Schnibble - couldn't find my backing & binding - Huge Sigh!


Despite the failures I think it was a good month. LOL


Thank you so much for sharing your "Someday" dreams with me - yesterday. I hope that you will all give yourself a "Someday"; you definitely deserve it.

Those are some really great accomplishments. The Piece of Cake quilts look great and show your generosity in amazing ways. Just a Breeze and Aviary will be saved for future inspiration. I would say March was definitely a good month.

Terry said...

Those aren't failures...they're head starts on your accomplishments for next month! :0)

Sorry Darlene, I don't see any failures. They are all incredible accomplishments to me. I bought the Scrap Basket book so now I can make the Just a Breeze quilt.

Susan said...

Failures??? I don't see any failures! I can't imagine getting that much done in just one month! Thank you for sharing all you did; it's an inspiration.

Darlene,
What a wonderful and productive month you've had. Everything is lovely. I think the Rabbits Prefer Embroidery is my favorite, but then you know me and red!

So what's up for April?

Holy Cow Woman! You must be on steriods! That's a LOT of quilting -- and it's all beautiful!!!

joan said...

Ok a few of your March projects have inspired me to set as my April goals. I have been looking at the "Summer Breeze" pattern for a while now and I think I am going to attempt this as a summer project! I love yours... and all of the others too. I would say you are very hard on yourself... "What failures?"
Great work♥♥♥

pinsandneedles said...

Wow that great finishes! NO failures here. I wish I could accomplish half of what you did! Very inspiring!

Wow what a huge month!!! Someday I hope to be as big a "failure" as you are! They are all fantastic- congratulations!

Melody said...

I did not see any failure here! You did a lovely job on all of them!

You got a lot done even if not everything was a finish like you would have liked. I just love that embroidered rabbit quilt! I think I told you that before but a second time is good, too.

Polly said...

Wow! You did really well! So much accomplished! love all of them! Polly :-)

Quilts And Pieces said...

Wow you've accomplished a lot! I don't see any failures, you have a good start for next month. I love all your projects!

Piecefulafternoon said...

Wow - amazing accomplishments - wonderful quilts - every one of them.

kjquilts said...

I certainly wouldn't call those failures! You really did accomplish a lot in March. Good for you!

Allie said...

Darlene, I think your March had more days than my March - who do I complain to??? Your projects are mind-boggling!!!!! And what truly amazes me is how beautiful they all are. If I made that many, they'd all be awful! You are absolutely inspiring, and just a wee bit intimidating....lol.

Victoria said...

I don´t see any failures either! I love all your great accomplishments, especially the Rabbits quilt, so cute. Do you do your own quilting? And on your DSM?
Have a great Easter Holiday.

March was a very good month for you...what awesome finishes. I am over the top in love with your bunny quilt...it's ready for Easter! YIPPEE!

Janet said...

Wow, I love them all, especially the bunny quilt. You're so busy, I think you accomplish an awful lot.
Happy Easter!

Kaaren said...

Failures? Are you kidding me???

What a prolific month you've enjoyed, Darlene. I'm breathless just looking at the projects that you've shown us.

Today we begin a new month and I can't wait to see what you accomplish this month.

You go girl...and Happy Easter to you and yours!

Michelle said...

Wow! I love all of them! You got alot done this month!

Carrie said...

Failures! Dar... How could you? It isn't a failure at all! It's just "breathing" and getting ready for the "big show"!

They're all wonderful ~ and you still got A LOT more accomplished last month than I did!

Alicia said...

Wow, you are very busy! Great job on all the finishes!

wendysquilting said...

I agree with everyone wow you sure did accomplish a lot! I love them all. I am so wanting the Scrap Basket book too. I'm on a self imposed grounding though :) but I do have it sitting in a shopping cart just in case!

Quilter Kathy said...

What great eye candy on your blog posting today :)
I love them all! That gold binding on your roundabout is perfect!
Now...I see that you need some help with binding your red rabbits...should I come over and help with that?!?!
*S*
I am going to take your advice and make a "someday" this weekend!

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

Isn't Mary the one who calls you "Ms. Speedy"? I think I just figured out the reason! I'm a little slow sometimes. :)

I'm so impressed with all your projects! You do such beautiful work, and I always enjoy your "show and tell." Thanks so much for sharing the picturs.

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

It looks like you still had a bunch of great accomplishments this month. It seems my to do list keeps getting longer each month. It's great to see that I'm not the only one though :)

Marianne said...

Wow! You have been quite busy. Stopped by to see your Roundabout which is very nice, BTW.

Salem Stitcher said...

You had an incredible month! That is a lot of finishes!!

Julie Isa said...

holy cow did you get a lot done!!! i look forward to those days!

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

Wow - what an awesome month! You already know I love them all - but I especially love the Aster Manor Pinwheel, the Rabbit's Prefer, and the new vintagey flimsy--and I love the Schnibbles, too! All successes in my book!!!

an encourager said...

Great Schnibbles (as are all the rest of your quilts in this post!).

Miss Jean said...

You do more in one month than most people (including me) do in a year! Great accomplishments. I love that you call your unquilted projects flimsies. So cute!

Red Geranium Cottage said...

You've been a busy gal too. Love all your accomplishments. Very nice.

Sandra said...

My, my all those projects in one month? You have been very busy! My favorite is the Schnibble entitled "Picnic". I love how the fabric gives the old basket pattern a modern look. I almost didn't recognize the pattern. Congrats on all you accomplished!

Rose Marie said...

You have accomplished a lot in one month ..... yes, a lot!!!

Ginger Patches said...

You got tons done big sis!!! When you get that much done I don't think you can use the word "failure" :)
I love both of your scnibbles! That make life fabric is on my wish list--love it! And that picnic quilt is on my to make list. So did it go together pretty easy? I got it out last month and just put it right back away--it looked overwhelming, can't remember why at the moment, probably just my mood lol! All your projects turned out beautiful!!!

Sinta Renee said...

I really really love your projects! They are all so beautiful! Lots of inspriation... you are just amazing!

Pam said...

Great accomplishments for the month. I love them all but the redwork quilt is my favorite.

Simone de Klerk said...

Some lovely finishes and yet to be finished! I especially love the stitched rabbits.
Your Schnibbles turned out very pretty.

Lori said...

What a terrific month of finishes!!

Candace said...

Darlene, I've heard it said that the only real failure in life is the failure to try. You've certainly more than tried, and I see no failures anywhere - all are gorgeous! I love the rabbits, and I do love redwork! You are such an inspiration....let me know when you find the magic secret to the
8th day!
Cheers!

Carole said...

You are amazing Girl Friend! Gosh.... those are some sweet projects! Makes me want to go home and quilt something! Presently in MA for the weekend! Of course I did the Quilted Crow thing! Happy Easter my friend! Cheers!
