It’s March! Let’s do Green!

A couple people asked me to give them a heads up on when I posted a tutorial for the Oh Susannah block on the Block Lotto site. March is my month to be a volunteer hostess for the Block Lotto, and I chose the Oh Susannah Block (we’ve shortened the name to just Susannah), and selected the green color scheme months ago.

And as fortune would have it, Angela from So Scrappy has also selected green as the March scrappy color of the month. And as March is also my birthday month and green is my favorite color, I think it was meant to be.

So, although the traditional Susannah block is nothing new, you are welcome to hop over to Block Lotto HERE and download a copy of the tutorial.

These are the three blocks I made for donation (no chance of winning) to the Block Lotto.

My husband’s best friend Mike passed away last night and we are heartbroken. Mike and Bruce have known each other since grade school and played in their musical folk group, The Muddy Gutter Boys, together for over 50 years. Terri, we love you and your beautiful family so much. Although we are all devastated, I’m sure Heaven is rejoicing now that Mike has returned Home.   xo


  1. So sorry for the loss of your dear friend. It is never easy, but with a band name like The Muddy Gutter Boys, I am sure there are many, many memories to live on.
    Green is good--it is perfect for spring!

  2. I might have to try this block. I'm glad green is the RSC color this month, too, as I cut ahead on my Loosey Goosey project.

  3. I'm so sorry about your friend. My birthday is in March, too! And I had already started cutting some green scraps for RSC, so I'm glad I guess it right for March. It looks like you're off to a great start.

  4. Happy Green Birthday Month. Green is so appropriate for March as we watch our plants begin to emerge. I like how the color variations in your blocks gave each one a different look. 2017 was a very bad year for Terry. He lost a friend in 7 of the 12 months. Guys we hung around with when we were first married that were his friends through out his entire childhood. Part of our gang when we rode motorcycles. I hate that you and Bruce have lost a good friend.
    xx, Carol

  5. My deepest condolences on the loss of your dear friend. I hope fond memories give you comfort in this sad time.

    Thank you for posting the Susannah block tutorial. I've made the block before (for Kat and Cat) but never saw it with the colors making a center spinning motif. I really like that! And green is my favorite color, too :)

  6. So sorry about your losing a good friend. As we get older, it happens more frequently.
    And talking about getting older, today is my birthday. I'm 70 today which seems incredible because I certainly don't feel like 70.
    My green sewing will have to wait until the end of the month as we are in FL and won't be home until the 25th. I may just have to let green flow over into early April.

  7. My sympathy to you, Bruce and your friends family. It's always hard to lose a friend.
