Unbelievably, we are nearing the end of April, and it is almost time for me to post the next “Options” block. But before I do, I’d like to share more “Economy” blocks made by BOM participants. (If you wonder what all the hubbub is about, click the “Options BOM QAL” tab in the menu. You will navigate to a page with links to an introduction and to all the Blocks of the Month to date. It’s not too late to join the QAL).
First up are Anita’s blocks. She is making two quilts from different fabric groupings, one from batiks and one from calicos. Did you notice the deer in the top block on the left? And I bet she fussy cut the rose in the bottom left block as well.
Joan also sent a photo of her blocks. Pink and green are such welcome reminders of spring!
Joy emailed me a picture of her blocks, too. From bananas to bugs, the block centers garner attention. What fun fabric combinations, Joy!
If the month has gotten away from you, I hope this blog post is a reminder to work on your “Economy” blocks. On April 30th you will have the opportunity to comment “Done” and be entered in a drawing for a free quilting magazine!
“Stitched in Color” with Rachel Hauser is one of the quilting blogs I follow. Rachel is currently constructing a quilt of Economy Stars using Heather Ross fabrics. Click here to read all about it. Her project inspires me to make an “I Spy” quilt by fussy cutting conversation prints for the center squares of “Economy” blocks.
