Out Of The Box–BOM ….Blocks One

It’s Time at last…..it’s finally the 5th January 2011.
Dawn and I are so excited to finally give you the first of the blocks for our Out Of The Box – BOM.
These are my blocks for you all and you can decorate your blocks how ever you want to. You don't have to do exactly like Dawn and I have done with our blocks.
1 Blocks One
The main aim for this BOM is for you all to get creative and decorate your blocks how ever you want and you don't even have to have them in order like we have them.
With this one I machine stitched ribbon on for the inside borders using one of the fancy stitches on my sewing machine and I loved that bit of lace so thought..well it can be made to look a little bit like a window with a curtain.
All the blocks are different and I have used buttons, lace, ribbons, embellishments, beads and of course stitched the different little stitcheries to make them all unique. You too can do this and if you want to copy mine then that's quite ok.
How you stitch yours up is entirely up to you.. you can put a couple of the blocks from my ones and put some of Dawn’s together and mix them all up and create your own design. Be creative and explore your designing talents…

Go here to see a recommendation of goodies to use...
We want to see what you do with the blocks so upload them into the Flickr account HERE.
Go HERE to download the pattern for Blocks One of my Out Of The Box – BOM.
Go to Dawn’s blog to read all about her Out Of The Box – BOM and where to download her first ones.
On my journey around blog land I have noticed that a few of you have this little button on your sidebars and I thank you for doing that. Makes it so much easier to click on to come and read all about the Out Of The Box – BOM and if you haven't got it on your blog then just grab this button and put it on your blog and link it back to mine and you wont get lost.
Out Of The Box BOM 2011

Don't forget to come back on the 1st February 2011 for Blocks 2.

Hugs to all……..Vicki
