A new quilt BOM-along.

A few of the ladies from the craft forum and I are doing a BOM-along.

Marg wanted to do this quilt


and Cheryl said she wanted to do it too and so of course I had to as well….so we shared it with the ladies on the craft forum and a few of them are joining in with us to do it as a block a month.

It’s called Sentimental Journey and is a free pattern from Block Central. 12 blocks all up….so will be fun encouraging each other along on our journey.

We decided that the first block was to start in September and then a block each month there after.

I love the blocks and was quite eager to get started.

So while I was waiting for September to get here I picked out my fabrics …(Park Avenue and Luna Knott. Love ‘em!)

DPP_0006 (Medium)

and downloaded the pdf’s with the instructions for the blocks.

Today I couldn’t wait any longer and made the first block.

It was such fun and lots of preciseness …..if that is a word.

Block 1

I am very happy with how the fabrics are working together and the dark fabric is actually the one that looks brown in the top picture but actually it is a dark green. To see where the fabrics looked good in what part of the blocks I put the blocks in to EQ7 and rearranged the fabrics until I was happy with them. Love EQ7 too!

Prior to making the Sentimental Journey block I made this block……


for the Mystery BOM that I am doing with a few of the ladies from the craft forum. 

Also a Framed Hexagon had to be made for Joma as she was the one I was sending to this month. She wanted anything to do with the garden as her theme, so I hope she likes this one. 

27 - For Joma (Small)

So already a bit of sewing happening for the month and I should receive Issue #4 of Leanne Beasley's Vignette magazine either tomorrow or Tuesday so will be able to post your issue off to you if you have pre-ordered one. It looks good! I ordered in extra issues so if you didn’t pre-order one, you can still get them from HERE.

Hugs to all……

Just beware...the blocks for that pattern are there, but the borders were never posted. They were supposed to go up last year in November. :-(
