WIP for March

Soupçon top is done
When the cat is out the mouse plays. So, I have had some time to work on a few of the many projects I have in progress. I finished this SAL (sew along) from faeriesandfibres.blogspot.ca. It was a 6 parts project. I used it to practice some great techniques. 

Center block with some Lady Bugs embroidered
Benjamin Biggs (BB) block 3 is also done. I am using mostly French General fabrics. I don't pre-wash my fabrics, and the one used to make the central ring shrank a lot. So, I had to iron it in submission. It is still not completely flat; but it will work in the end. Better wash the rest of it.

Central block for Mrs Billings' Coverlet (12 inches)
The last picture is the central block for Mrs Billings' Coverlet. It is a pattern from Somerset Design in Melbourne, Australia.
 I will make it very scrappy; and this center  is made with some French General and Tilda fabrics. The striped border is cut larger than needed; but I will only trim it when the next row is ready. I have 13 more borders to go; therefore, this will look very different at the end.
