The BOM blocks for January for my guild were fun to make. There are two 12.5" blocks here. I had fun going through my scraps looking for 18 different brights to make the 2.5" squares for the corners. I love bright quilts, but I don't seem to make many of them so I don't have loads of brights. I thought I would find some in the fat quarter collection I won at my December guild meeting (over 100 of them), but there weren't many brights in their either. At least I have a good strong red group.
When I went on the Western Washington Shop Hop last June, I found this pattern I had to have. I don't often use commercial patterns, but I fell in love with the example. It is very hard to see in this photo, but there are some curves in this that are done in a Cathedral Window style. Today, I finally got to the fabric store, gift certificate in hand, to buy the fabric I will use for this small quilt.
The color on the left is a deep rich plum that is repeated in the little pattern elements of the orange. These fabrics are from different manufacturers, but they work really well together. The middle batik is a much better color match than the photo shows. I am pretty excited about getting started on this project.
This just makes my WIP list a little longer, but I really enjoy having several projects going at once. That way I don't get bored.
I hope you are all planning a safe New Year weekend.
I am going to take a little break until at least Sunday.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
