I decided since it was a RB BOM, I would use some RB fabric. Remember Reubenita the Donkey? Made with Summer Song? Well, I am making these Mystery BOMs out of the same FQ pack.
January's block is chevrons. My block turned out kind of scrappy/choppy looking since I used dots and stripes, but I'm happy with it.
I also joined the Sugar Block Club over at Stitchery Dickory Dock, another BOM. This one also comes with a sweet recipe included every month.
I was at a loss for what fabric to use when I decided that I would just use some more Summer Song, and in the end, maybe I can merge the two sets of blocks to make a sampler quilt.
So I set out to make the Sugar Block Club block for January, and after I got it cut out, I wasn't thinking that I was going to like it, but in the end, I'm happy with it, too. I did use some yellow scraps in these two blocks, though. I'm thinking I will have enough Summer Song to do both BOMs, and if I have to I can add in some scrap solids or prints if needed. Here's the first SBC block, called "Snow Blossom".. mine's not very snowy, though.. more springy. :)
I'll have fun watching both of these stacks of blocks grow until I can put them into a quilt top.
Have a great weekend, we're off tonight to watch the Monster Jams (six year old boy's dream!), I think the Scooby Doo truck is even going to be there..
And off to Santa Rosa tomorrow for the weekend. Dare I stop at Broadway Quilts? My mind says yes, my piggy bank says NO! Maybe we should stick to the Jelly Belly Factory tour, or the Charles Schulz Charlie Brown Museum. Those things would be fun and cost less money and fun for the entire family.. :)
