Blogger's Block of the Month

My block for the month of October

One of my favorite things to do is read blogs.  One of my favorites is Amy's Creative Side.  She's all about quilting and sewing and keeping it fun.  And sharing. 

Then I read her blog post about the Blogger's Block of the Month (here it is). 

It looked like fun and I need to use up some of my REDs in my fabric cabinet (can't fit any more reds in there!).  I love looking at Amy's quilts and thought that I'd love to make at least one block designed by her. 

I hopped on over to another favorite blog (Canton Village Quilt Works) and learned about the Blogger's Block of the Month here.    It is FREE.  The list of designers includes some familiar names and some that are new to me.

It's intended for all levels of quilters and is all pieced.

I picked out several reds to use along with some mostly white background fabrics.  I have no idea what to expect.  But that's OK.  There is no rule that says you have to know exactly how your quilt is going to look when it's finished.  Serendipity can be a whole lot of fun.  Just pick out some fabrics and colors that you like. 

If you're interested, join in!  Please click on the button on the left of my blog with the Mariner's Compass Block.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.  I'll be watching.

I'm already a bit behind because I haven't started the block for November even though it's been out for several days.  Best get with it.  

We'll have fun together!!

  1. Sounds like fun, as does Bonnie Hunter's new Mystery BOM. Hmmm...what to do, what to do...
