So I'm going to blame my friend Leanne. One day she said to me, "I'm doing the Block of the Month again. You should do it too." I asked, what is the Block of the Month?" Well.... in September I went into the quilt shop, paid my $15 and received my items for block #1. As a mennonite girl, $15 is too good a deal to pass up. Plus it gets better. Each month when I visit the quilt shop on the 15th with my completed block, I receive the next month's block for FREE! Every month! That is definitely too good of a deal to pass up. The rest is history...
As of today, I have just completed block #5. After 12 months, I will have 12 completed 12"x12" blocks.
Of course the BOM program only keeps be busy one day out of a month - two days if its a complex pattern. So that got me searching for more quilt patterns, quilt blocks, and other BOM programs.
I must say, there is something therapeutic about cutting fabric into bits and sewing them back together. I plan to post photos of each project so later I can look back and see which are favourites. Perhaps a few of you will journey together with me.
