    1-February-2014 BOM Squares & Rectangles Photo's.

    Hello Again,

    I am starting with a photo of the two blocks that I have made for February. I hope you enjoy looking at them. I chose to stay with the same color theme, that I did for last year, so by the end of this year, I will have a bigger quilt. These were so fun to make. I can hardly wait to see what you ladies will come up with for your new blocks!!

    i grabbed a stack of 24 different fat quarters and some cream background fabric. (about a yard and a half.)
    i got two lap-sized tops out of that and still have leftovers from the fat quarters.
    these two will go along with others my friend and i are making to donate to a nursing home.

    for the first top, i set the blocks into sashing that's about 2-1/2" wide, with a plain 3" border.

    for the second, i used 1" sashing and threw together a pieced border from the leftovers. i haven't measured yet, but i think i could squeeze enough pieces out of the fat quarters to make blocks for two more tops.

    I love your color choices and really like the scrappy border on the second one.

    i just used the block patterns from QuiltersCache.
    no pattern for the block layouts.
    i just alternated the blocks along each row.

    both tops have blocks that are going in wrong directions.
    i was able to fix one of them, but the other one would take too long.
    i'll just make a replacement of that top for the nursing home and keep the goofy one for myself.

    i am going tomorrow to get what i need to create a decent design "wall." LOL
