    LOL Yvonne, you must've been sitting there with your fabric and rotary cutter in your hand when she posted!
    That's gonna be a beautiful quilt, I never thought much about pink but now I realize that it really is pretty. Keep it up.

    Well, I belong to a couple other BOM's and I waited all week for the patterns for today to come out so I could spend the day making blocks....this is the only one that got posted today! SO....instead I opted to do a couple other things today but will probably get the other patterns tomorrow so I can spend a day making blocks! Can't wait...churn dash has always been a favorite of mine!!!

    Steve...the patterns are always in the MAIN section and we post the photos here in the PICTURES section....if you go to the main section and can't find the topic for Sept 15 BOM....just click on the sticky BOM at the top and if Boo has had a chance she has it listed there also

    This is my version. The center is a fussy-cut of vintage-like fabric from another project.

    Here is my shot. All but one point is pretty good. This was made with an old vintage feedsack that I broke down and chopped up.

    Oops! I guess I posted the pics in the wrong place the first time 'round, so here they are again.

    Since it isn't my favorite pattern, Leslee said to have fun and change it at will. Following her suggestions, I lengthened the center and ended up with either "Slim Jim" or "Which way did he go?" depending on how you look at it. She mentioned a book that deals with this method if you're interested. :D

    Thanks amma, it needed something other than the yellow, which shows every seam, but other than that it was fun.

    Once again it is neat to see what everyone is coming up with. It's the old saying all over: "Give a hundred quilters the same pattern and not one of them will do it the same way." Very cool...

    They are all so beautiful, I cut the strips yesterday while the rag quilt was washing, I can't wait to get to the sewing machine after chat. I'm still embroidering the name block on the rag quilt but will post pic later today.

    Interesting Steve, that's really a good change I think.

    Feed sack? Real feed sack??? Beautiful!

    yes, real feed sack. Can even see the seam from the sack when it was sewn. This one did have a piece cut out of it tho. So I didn't feel TOO bad about cutting it some. I do have another feed sack that is whole... it's a white with little yellow flowers in pots all over it. Great stuff. Haven't decided to break down on that one yet :)
