I really appreciate all of your comments and encouragement.
In other news.... I think I have finally figured out which colors
to use where in my first Block of the Month pattern.
(pictured above is block 1)
I am going to attempt to use a "line" of fabric for this one.
I have chosen Bliss, by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.
No promises, as lines tend to make me crazy.
I really like the Lakehouse print on the scallop, so it may come out just as pictured.
(If you like it too, you may want to head out and buy some
Lakehouse as their line is about to change, and this print may be hard to come by.
You will probably need 1/2 yard just for appliques.)
After the fourth attempt at this block, I decided to try an iron-on technique
just to see how the colors worked together.
(My finished block will be needle-turned of course, this one was just a test.)
I am still going to make a few changes to fabric selections.
I have decided that the border has to be pink, so the roses will really pop.
I plan on starting this BOM in January.
This will be a 10 month BOM project, so you have plenty of time to have it quilted and bound by the end of the year. This quilt will be 50" finished size.
I plan on turning mine into a queen size to fit my bed.
I want to have a list of you ready to go in January, and if your year has been anything
like mine... you may want to sign up now
before you become Holiday poor over the next few months!
On the home page of my website, at the bottom, there is a "Buy Now" button.
You can buy the entire pattern now...
a whole year of patterns for the introductory price of $40.00 (includes shipping.)
I know, this is going to be a shot in the dark for alot of you,
but this BOM is sooo cute, you are going to love it!
Otherwise, the pattern will be available monthly for $5.00/month, pattern only.
I am in talks with some local shops with the fabric power to have a kit available,
let me know if this is something you would be interested in.
(These kits will be in short supply, because fabric lines change so frequently,
and most Moda lines sell out quickly making them non-reorderable.)
Thanks for participating in my contest and for visiting!
