I am a total sucker for Blocks of the Month. "It's only one block per month," I tell myself. Then I wind up with 12 projects wherein the blocks are all finished, but not put together!
This is the 2010 Patchwork Party BOM. The fabric and design is by my fav, Marti Michell.
I'm using Eleanor Burns' "Road to Stardom" from "Still Stripping After 25 Years" for the layout.
As an aside -- the patterns in this book have resulted in multiple 4-H projects and at least three quilts by me. If you can't find it at your LQS, here is the link to Eleanor's site.
Here is a closeup of my favorite block:
Notice there are two missing setting triangles? I ran out of the background fabric! Lucky for me, the Fat Quarter Shop used the same fabric as a backing kit for one of their BOMs. I hope they really have it and it's not just a leftover item in their online shop! Kimberly, don't fail me now!
Here is the fabric for the two borders. I don't know if I really like the pink now (after all, it's four years old!) but I decided to go with what I have rather than try to find something else. Hear that, DH? I'm NOT buying more border fabric!
Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
Keep your fingers crossed for me that the last bit of background fabric gets here before April 1st!
