A Little Of This and a Little Of That

Progress on several fronts..........

Two Dutch Treat blocks. This one from last night called Chocolate Box

And this one finished tonight called Circus. It's one of my favorites I think

Amy, at Block by Block Quilt Shop in Carthage, MO is offering a BOM based on the quilt called My Secret Garden by Cindy Lammon in her book, Gathered From The Garden. Today I made January's blocks...two Tulips in the Garden.

Then I made February's block for our guild's 2009 BOM. We are using patterns from the Florida Cabin Fever Quilt Guild's website ..their 2007 BOM. We are all using the same background fabric, so whoever wins the blocks will have some continuity when they put them together in a quilt. The light fabric is the common fabric.

This month's block was a rail fence. Here's mine for the block lotto.

Next I decided that I would use a lighter background and make blocks to keep for myself. The quilt is called Old Time Sampler. If you haven't noticed I like sampler quilts, especially those with traditional blocks.

Here's the February Rail Fence I'll keep. The block isn't actually crooked..I cropped badly.

Here's my January Honey Bee

And then I jumped ahead and made April's 16 Patch Star.

Wonder what mischief I can get into tomorrow.
