Happy New Year!
I hope 2013 is off to a great start for you!
Today is the kickoff of Monique's Blogger Girls BOM. Just in case you're new to my blog, Monique, of Open Gate Quilts, is hosting a free block of the month. The first of the month Monique will post instructions for a block on her blog. Besides Monique's blocks, several other bloggers will also be posting pictures of their blocks for each month.
Here are my blocks
And Block One different version, same pattern, different fabric placement.
I like them both, can't pick a favorite!
I've decided to us my Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda fabric. I bought some fabric last year when I thought I was going to make that adorable Sweetwater pattern named The Neighborhood. After I got the pattern and found out it was an applique project not a piecing project, that fabric just sat in a bin in my closet. I think it will make a better Blogger Girls BoM project. I'm ready to work with some light colors, Spring may be months away where I live, but not in my sewing room!
Check out Monqiue's blog, Open Gate Quilts, for instructions on downloading the pattern directions.

This is what the finished quilt should look like, well this is what Monique's quilt will look like, mine will probably look somewhat different.
You can go with a 6 block project or a 12 block project. I'm going with the 12 block project, where you make two blocks using the same pattern, but different fabric combinations.
We're planning a parade for all the finished tops and have created a Flickr account for everyone to share their blocks. The Flickr Group is named Blogger Girls BoM.
I hope you join us!
