A Lovely Year of Finishes - March goal

About 18 months ago when granny square quilts were the thing all over blogland, I joined a granny square swap on flickr.   There were 24 members in each group.  We had pre-allocated colours, but could choose what colour combo we wanted to make.  I have a ton of blue and green so went for this colorway. We could also choose whether we went for snow, white or charcoal backgrounds, but there could only be 8 members in each colorway. We made 24 blocks (8 white, 8 show and 8 charcoal) and duly dispatched them off to the swap leader to be sorted out and  sent to the members.

The tutorial we used was one by Katy at I'm a Ginger Monkey. So easy to follow and much easier than piecing a ton of tiny squares!  

I managed to get the squares sewn together but that is as far as I got. My goal for this month is to finish this quilt.
