Wishing You a Happy March From My Porch!

March on My Peaceful Porch, 21 X 36 inch porch quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2024. NFS.

We are blessed with great weather in Atlanta so we have great porch days year round, but March loves to tease us. One day it is hot, and the next day it is cold. No matter what the temperature, we love the surprising signs of spring that pop up unexpectedly as Atlanta turns green again.

And of course we love Saint Patrick's Day and all the good luck it brings.

I confess that I love Block of the Months (BOM). Some days I just don't want to think creatively. I just want to sit down and quilt. I use BOM's for those days. Thank you Stitchin Heaven for your wonderful porch quilt series.

The quilts in this series were an immediate "must do" for me because I have a screened back porch where I spend many peaceful hours. The fact that the applique is precut and fused makes it all the better for relaxed quilting. This series of 12 little happy quilts will become part of my heirloom collection of quilts and will be displayed on my porch for years to come.

Each quilt in the series measures 21 X 36 inches. I substituted African fabric for the back. There is a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display and a label that documents the quilt.

I signed it on the front and added a peace charm.

So here's to March and the luck of the Irish!!
