This is the first block and it was designed by Brenda Riddle of The Acorn Quilt and Gift Company. This will give you an idea of the fabrics that will be used for the next eleven blocks. I'm usually really bad at doing blocks of the month and procrastinate to the point of not doing any of them. I got a little cocky because I finished the first one before I received the second one in the mail. Wow, my life is so dull that getting one quilt block done gets me excited - sad! LOL!!
God has a way of knocking us back down to size, though. I had no more than turned off my sewing machine (it hadn't even cooled down yet!) when I went to get the mail. Guess what was waiting for me? You guessed it! Number 2!!!
It's going to be gorgeous! It's considered Christmas fabric but not so much that I can't keep it out all year. I better get started on this one......
I'm starting another block of the month project in October called Simply Sophisticated. A bunch of bloggers are going to cyber-sew together and hold each other accountable to get it done. That should be great fun. My only trouble is that I forgot who I was going to do it with! EGADS! A senior moment! Couldn't be, could it? A young vibrant, just plain forgot moment? Yea, that's the ticket. Whoever you are, please remind me - gently.
The Fat Quarter Shop has some wonderful block of the month programs, not to mention outstanding merchandise plus a great blog, The Jolly Jabber. Stop on by and say hi! Tell them Miss Jean sent you on over.
*Sure, sure! I have problems with my posts in the fact that most of the time I can't figure out how to have my photos enlarge when they are clicked on. So now with this post they do. What's up with that? The one time I don't want them to because my seams don't meet exactly on the block! Aaack! Keeping me humble here folks.
