CQJP 2012 Jan, Feb & March Done!

At the beginning of year I signed up for the CQJP 2012 (Crazy Quilt Journal Project) with all intentions of creating one block a month for the year 2012.  I've had a bit of a slow start as life seems to be running its course with one thing after another happening.  Finally, with a breather, I have managed to catch up and have completed my Jan, Feb & March blocks with April's not far behind.

I decided since I wasn't going to be going with a "theme" I would create my blocks with a different color combination each month.  Some months, my favorite colors, other months...not so much.  As you can see I have yet to use my usual "blue" on a complete block but did manage to push through and use my favorite "blue" color along with my least favorite color "orange".... all in all I think the combination came out pretty cool for the month of March.

  5. Just beautiful Nicki, even the orange which I very seldom use myself. You should be very proud of your blocks.

  6. Thank you Wendy - I know you are a lover of "peacock" colors like myself so using orange was a real stretch - must admit I kinda liked it when done.
