CQJP March block

Here is my contribution for the Crazy Quilt Year Project for the March month.
The third block. I can make a row now, looks nice :-)
The lace in the lower corner is antique, the very last piece I found in my stash of this kind of lace.
Handmade in Belgium, about 150 years ago, so called: Rijselse kant or Beverse kant.
Original it was used for a lace bonnet in my region were I come from; North-Holland.
