|Original base block for March CQJP Challenge|
Last month I showed you this block (above) which I had made and which I was going to embellish as my block for March. However, you will recall, I ended up piecing and embellishing a different block (shown below).

In the mean time, I decided that I wasn't entirely happy with the balance of the original block that I had made for March (and will now use at a later date). The white fabric triangle to the bottom left seemed to dominate the block too much. As a result, I have added an extra piece of fabric to that corner and the new base block now looks like this.
I am happier with the balance of the block now but, I have decided that I will save it to use later in the year for another of the CQPJ Challenge blocks as, I have also made a different style of block which I am keen to embellish for April. It is made up of two 'fans' of fabric and I can't wait to get started on the embellishment.

I hope to work on it over the weekend.
To finish this post, I just have to say a very H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y to my cute little furry companions who are seven years old today.....

I am afraid they look a bit scruffy in these photos but we had just come in from a run in the park and the grass was wet!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend full of creativity!
