Bloom, Bloom, Bloom

28 bloom blocks pieced, only 8 more to go!  
My design wall can't hold any more.


Here's a close-up for you to enjoy. 




 I've not even come close to falling out of love with this project.   It's usually about this time when I'm either questioning my fabric choices or pattern decision.  Nothing but happiness and fun in my sewing room.



Today is the last day to leave a comment on Monday's post to be eligible to win Monique Dillard's latest book, Diamond Traditions, don't miss out!  The questions answered the most frequently so far have been what is your least favorite and most favorite aspect of quilting.  We need to form some teams, I need the quilters who enjoy picking out fabric and don't like cutting on my team.  Isn't it funny, as a group, how we like and dislike different tasks? I love cutting the fabric and can't imagine anyone not enjoying it too!  

Monique is wrapping up the book tour at her blog today, click here to check it out.

  12. I know these have been labor-intensive, but as I stare at your quilt wall, I'm just amazed how beautiful it is. But, we're Carolina bound (sold house) and that quilt is on my list once we get settled! XOXO

  13. This is the absolute perfect quilt to make right now with those fabrics - end of spring and the perfect start of summer. The fabrics are so happy, who would not just fall in love all over again!! Can hardly wait until you lay this all out in order - then again, you may just change up the pattern a bit - LOL!!!
    I can't imagine someone not like cutting. I love straighening it, patting it, making it just right, then that first cut to clean up, then making sweet little organized piles (that's what I do). Love all my steps just right, and then fun to sit and sew and watch the magic happen.

  14. Oh my goodness - those all look fantastic. I was just considering classic reds and have some dark purples for the berries, but they don't seem to be enough contrast to really stand out. Maybe I need to interview some other choices. Decisions, decisions.

  22. Such a great variation from the pattern photo! I can't wait to see them placed with the flying geese units. I will probably have to order the pattern myself and make a small wall hanging at least - it is very inspirational!
