Well, it's my cutting week, and I've been getting a good start on getting things going for January. In addition to the red and white log cabin, and four Rose of Sharon blocks, I've cut out Bonnie's Blues. Its a 2 block quilt I'm making for my BFF (Bonnie)'s birthday coming up in March. I arranged the blocks in two layouts. After seeing it, I wanted a little more negative space than what I had come up with in the first layout, so I made the blocks smaller, and widened the sashing.
Well that's cut - the only definite plans I had for January were the log cabin, and Bonnie's Blues. But this is "cut week" so on with the show. Between work, family, and life in general - if I miraculously somehow manage to have more sewing time before the end of the month comes, I need to have something to work on, and there's no need to waste this time that I have my "cut area" set up. I've also had on my side burner the Farmer's Wife Sampler - which I also happened to get with my EQ7, so I printed out the first 3 blocks - just figure that will be some filler.
Here we have the Wrench, The Garden Patch, and the Practical Orchard. Not set on the coloring yet - gotta dig through my fabrics and get settled on something - need to cut these out this week! :)
To BOM or To Not BOM??
I loved the BOM done last year for The Quilt Show. The Sedona Star by Sarah Vedeler. I downloaded the pattern, and would also love to dive in to this one. This is the color it was done in - but I think I would like black and white . . .
then there's the BOM they're doing for 2013 . . . Two of Us by Sue Nickels and Pat Holly.
I love these colors!!
