This is a BOM quilt from my LQS. The first Saturday of the month we would meet and get a new block to make. So much fun to see each other's work and chat with friends. (And buy stuff - shh...don't tell on me!)
Each block was a lot of fun to make. I changed some of the blocks, like the bird house. Then added more leaves and flowers. I also added some buttons and beads. I had bought a different red/flower fabric for the border. Then I went back and bought this one with the Polk-a-dots. I just liked it so much better! With all that work I want to have the border I like best.
It's all sandwiched and pinned. And now laying under the needle of my sewing machine.
I have one block quilted and the quilting of the next block planned out . I think that's pretty good - it's progress at any rate. I'm a little worried about quilting it and messing it up with my inexperience. But I'm gonna do it. That's the way we learn.
