NewFO Projects for March 2013

It's been a good month for starting new projects, and I'm linking up with Cat Patches' 2013 NewFO Challenge in the hopes of winning this really, really cute cat needle nanny that Smitty has talked Barbara into offering as the prize this month, plus a one-year subscription to McCalls Quilting magazine - whoohoo!  Now I ask you, doesn't that sound like the perfect prize for me???  Wish me luck, would you please?
=^..^=

My first start was Hudson's Heroes.  It is nearly complete except for stitching down the wheels and quilting/binding it.  I'm hoping to give this to my grandson next month, hence the hurry :*)



Then I started two new projects in classes I took at Mountain Quiltfest in Pigeon Forge this month.

Here is the first Tower One block I made in the class taught by Paula Nadelstern.  I haven't touched it since, but this block was so much fun, I know I'll be picking it back up soon :*)


And here is what I have done on the blocks for the second class, Strip Stacks....



Did you start anything new this month?  
Why not join in the fun? .......  Remember the great prizes!!!

  3. My favorite part of the Heroes quilt is that the helicopter is turned in the opposite direction than the trucks. I saw a sunbonnet sue that had just one sue turned in the opposite direction. The quilt was called "It's Okay to Be Different". I loved that!

  4. Tower One is a very interesting block, can't wait it and the others made into a quilt. Hudson's quilt is adorable.

  5. All great projects, Teresa.
    That is very generous of you to encourage us to join in the fun, since that reduces your chances to win the coveted prize!
    I'll resist and do my part in helping you win. : )

  7. The Hudson's Heroes is so darn cute. I love the border; it looks very 60's (or 50's?)I made a fireman quilt for my first grandson, 13 years ago!

    I'm impressed with your block by Paula Nadelstern. I've never attempted anything by her because her things so advanced. Good for you!
