    Pretty....will have to get myself going. Are you making more than one of each block to make the throw/quilt bigger?

    a friend and i are teaching classes.
    everybody who makes all the blocks taught in class will end up with a top.
    the top design includes a 30" center, so it will be 72" square by the end of december.

    i make at least two of each block - one finished sample; one to work on as we teach it.
    so, i will have at least two versions of the top by the time we're done.

    Thank you. I was thinking of making 2 of each block, also....to make the finished project bigger.

    Kathryn - great job I really like the color combination, too.

    I'm still working on my block - half way finished (the right side of the block). I have April's block cut out, too but for some reason I was tempted to go ahead and assemble this one first ???!!!

    I like your color combinations as well. I haven't even started on mine. The sampler I'm quilting takes up all the room.

    love the combos of pinks and blues. That really came together nice. I wish I had your eye for fabrics.

    Thank you TK - if only you knew how I worry if I picked the right color combo's since I work from mostly scraps I've picked up at a favorite quilt shop in Rockledge FL (they actually have a scrap bin that customers can rummage through to fill a zip lock bag - that will close - for $4). Sometimes these scraps are a good size and sometimes they work for much smaller projects. I can't leave the beautiful batiks fabric scraps alone - such an addiction and so pretty . . . just hoping to be able to combine with what I have on hand (i.e. fat quarters, etc.).

    Do BOM's generally start at the beginning of the year? I keep seeing them already in progress. Too late to join in.

    This BOM started in January, but it's never too late to jump in! Each block is still listed in the forum. We would love to have you join us!
    I really love the way these blocks are coming together
