AMQG BOM - Block 2

Block 2:  November - Disappearing 9 patch

Ok, I didn't really do this in November.  But I got it done, so give me some slack!

This is my new favorite block.  I could make these all day.  You just make a 9-patch, then cut it in quarters and re-arrange.  Fantastic!

AMQG Block of the Month

Saturday, October 30, 2010

I am participating in my very first Block-of-the-Month.  Very exciting!  I picked some fabrics that I've had in my stash for a while - you know, the ones that you like to look at every once in a while but don't dare use because they are just too pretty.  Yes, I've decided to start cutting them up.  They will be in a better place, shortly!

Block 1: October - Friendship Star

I've made Friendship Stars before, so this time I decided I was going to do an inside out Friendship Star - I used white fabric, which would typically be used as the background fabric, for the star fabric instead.

I was very excited to hear that one of my quilts, Feathered Grassland, received an Honorable Mention at this years Austin Area Quilt Guild Show.

My mother and I made this quilt together.  Though she lives over 1500 miles away, I love to collaborate on quilts with her.  Last year, she pieced a red, white, and blue top with this same pattern for one of her cousins.  I liked it so much that I asked her to piece another one just for me!  She picked out fabrics that she purchased through her guild's annual fundraiser.  She also added a custom border to Evelyn Sloppy's design.

I had two other quilts entered into the show.  A self portrait and a beautiful quilt that my neighbor, Jan, designed and pieced.
