Block of the Month Has Begun!

We had our first Block of the Month Enrichment activity last night. I found a pattern that has you make 1 block every month for a year and you have a queen sized quilt at the end! How very fun! We have such a fun group of ladies show up and sew, thank goodness someone wants to do some of the crazy ideas I come up with.

We sure seem to have a good time sewing together, sewing and laughing and just chatting away. I think there are around 16 ladies that are doing this fun block of the month project with us.


I am going to make 2 quilts and here are my blocks. The one on the bottom follows the original color pattern and is going to be scrappy. The one on top substitutes brown for yellow and will be the same fabrics throughout the entire quilt. The block on the left is the block all the ladies made last night. The block on the right is the block for May. It has been so fun to see the fabric that all the ladies are picking out! Everyone's quilts are going to be darling and so very different!!

Count my mom in...I was supposed to call you and tell you that she was in Provo that night. I didn't get home from soccer until 6:45 and when I called, Matt said you had already left. She loves doing that with you guys though. What a talented group!
