March Calendar Color, RSC Color, Dawn's Challenge 24 Plus Blocks

My calendar color for March, green!
RSC color of the month Teal/Turquoise and Plus blocks for Dawn's Challenge 24.

Using this book, pg. 124 for Challenge 24...
'Sticks', I think they're close enough to call them Plus blocks.

My Liberated Log Cabin quilt #2 with borders, binding sewn onto front, pinned down on back.

Torrance Beach, overcast and cooler today.

Happy March from Rancho Palos Verdes!
And St. Patrick's Day is coming right up.

Reporting the quilt news from the rancho where we have overcast skies.

My color calendar color of the month is green, I like the words used describing green,
nurturing, organic, fertile, healing, generous, etc. Those are some good words.
Wouldn't it be a wonderful change if the media/news industry started using those words and words like them, instead of the usual negative, destructive, gloomy words they pelt everyone with.
What a relief that would be.

For Dawn's Challenge 24, I chose to use my book by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston, 
'Freddy and Gwen Collaborate Again' pg. 124. The block is titled 'Sticks' but I think it's about the same thing as a Plus Block so that's what I'm calling it. 
I used teal/turquoise scraps to piece the Plus Blocks for the RSC color of the month and so got two challenges fulfilled in one.

I sewed the binding onto the front of my Liberated Log Cabin quilt #2 and now I'm working on hand sewing it down onto the back, almost done!

Torrance Beach for coffee this morning, overcast and cool, but still enjoyable.

And that quilt friends is the news from the rancho, where progress is being made and I'm remembering to be thankful.
We do have so much to be thankful for don't we?

I'll be by to visit.
