Do you like to do block of the month projects? I’ve done a few quilt alongs and they are very similar—a quilt along lasts for a few weeks or maybe months whereas a block of the month lasts for an entire year.
This year I wanted to use up some fat quarter bundles that have been sitting on my shelves for waaaaay too long, so I joined a few QALs and BOMs that started this January.
Here are my first two blocks. I am using a fat quarter bundle from Pink Chalk Fabrics called Hot Summer Nights. My original idea was to do one block in warm colors and one in cool (since you make two blocks of each design), but picking the cool fabrics was getting to be a bit overwhelming for me. Choosing color is my biggest challenge in quilting. To have enough fabric to complete the larger sized quilt, I added a few fat quarters from my stash.
The background fabric is a new Kona color called Biscuit.
Are you doing any BOMs this year?
