This week I've been working on a few BOM's. Don't you just love a block of the month quilt? Do one block a month and at the end of the year you've got a quilt. Of course if you're like me and participate in a few BOM's, it's a bit more of a challenge.
This block is for my bee challenge. This block will go to Linda. She selected the paper pieced pattern and provided us with the black/white fabric.
Our guild is having two BOM's this year. This one is the more advanced one. I know! This doesn't look like what I typically make! I signed up so I could force myself to work on my piecing skills, which are indeed lacking. I had some fabric from the same line on hand - I bought it years ago when I was more traditional. I figured this would be a good use for it. And yes, the quilt will be beautiful, even though I'm not a traditional person. Each month, we will be doing a different block in the center with the same frame (the green and tan) around it.
This is our guild's other block of the month, meant for beginners. I signed up for this one, too. Those who make this one turn them in at the next meeting and there's a drawing to win all the blocks. I'm always glad to have a chance to win blocks - this would make a great donation quilt.
Prince is doing well. We've got a new plan to battle the snakes. I'll tell you about it soon. We're at war with the venomous snakes!!!
