March BOM Blocks

Last night I stayed up until midnight finishing the four BOM blocks for March. They each measure 12.5". 
Today I purchased the second fabric for the wedding gift quilt, the white on cream. The other fabric which I really wanted wasn't reasonably accessible so I chose this one, I think it will be OK.
I bought eight yards, probably will need around six but I am not taking any chances and this sort of neutral fabric will always come in handy. This photo represents about a 3'x4" swatch.
So I can begin working on that kingsize quilt this week, the planned size is around 110" square. The zig zag design will go together fast I think, I will use the four at a time HST method for the blocks.
There is still one more of those green quilts awaiting quilting but I plan to get it done Saturday with my new Circle Lord, then they can both be mailed out next week. As long as I can bounce back and forth between the sewing machine and the longarm it will benefit my back!

I'm amazed on how much you get accomplished. I like the colors in your BOM blocks. They remind me of Amish quilts.
