The past few days have been spent at a birthday hamburger cookout and selling raffle tickets for the Peach Festival raffle quilt and presenting two programs for quilt guild and finishing quilts for community service. All, fun; however, I told the HUmAn last night that I wanted to spend today doing nothing more than sewing for me. And sew I did.
Once a month, Pile O' Fabrics and Sew, Mama, Sew! give us the big block BOM. June's block "The Pieces" is out and it is a great one.
Here's my 24 1/2" block, completed with two pieces of Amy Butler's Alchemy fabric. Hers is the white floral and the aqua butterfly. I added a scrap of Zen Chic's Comma and a piece of delightful Keiko Goke out of Japan - yellow with aqua and lavender spirals on the bottom row. The only fabric I could find that would blend and/or contrast with all these fabrics was the lavender for the sashing and border. I like it!
And, here is "The Pieces" with my other three big blocks. I think there will be six in this BOM quilt-along and I'm really thinking I'll put all of my blocks together for one quilt top.
