SOME INFO FOR THE NEXT FEW WEEKS
Tomorrow starts the QOV (quilt of Valor) blog hop sponsored by Marjorie.
I am the first out of the gate so be sure to stop by.
Gene Black, An Alabama Artist and Quilter
http://b-quilts.com/blog Marjorie is going to post on her blog all kinds of ideas for QOV quilts, sizes, designs, and patterns….so be sure to stop by her blog often. She has already started with a rail fence and a few layouts.
There will be prizes on the blog level and then one grand prize of a Go Baby and Five dies (for those who submit squares, tops, or completed quilts)
HOPE you join us.
Later I am going to release another round topper….maybe by the time I get my fill of these toppers I will have enough for each month?????
This is a big AND…….in May, Caroll from Attic Shop Window (http://westmichquilter.blogspot.com/) and I are going to release a pattern for you every two weeks. We are going to call this BMB, bi-monthly block. Caroll is also showing her blocks in redwork...this should be fun, I saw hers and they are awesome.
This is going to be a Christmas quilt so you will need to get some background fabric. My sister has some in her store if you chose (www.inchwormfabrics.com)??? Nothing too overbearing.
You will also need lots of different browns. I used my scraps and a few fat quarters (which are breeding nicely in my scrap bend)…so no worries about cutting into them.
Maybe a few different colored Christmas scraps would be nice too. The biggest expense will be the background fabric.
My background fabric.
I also used some white fabric, so I am guessing you maybe need a yard of white (maybe a half yard), just depending on whether you want to put yours together like I have done. You can get that later.
I tried to do a button in photo bucket but it looks good but comes out different on my blog...will work on that and get back to you.
