Can you believe it's June 1st! I have no idea where this year is flying off to. The good news about it being June 1st, it's time for the latest and the last Blogger Girl BOM block. Yip, this is the last one, and it's a good one for wrapping up the sew along.
Every month I always say this is my favorite month (except month two, the robot head month). I won't say that today because month 5 is still my favorite, but I will say this, this block is the easiest of the group to piece and I do love how it turned out, it's my second favorite block!
And here are all my blocks, pieced and ready for some sort of setting, I'm still mulling over my options, I'm going with something different than what Monique designed.
The fabric that I'm using is Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda. Oh, and one more thing, my blocks will finish at 6 inches, not the 12 inches in the patterns. I thought it would be fun to have a Mini Blogger Girl BOM quilt. Monique said she was fine with me changing up the size of the blocks, but that she wouldn't provided directions for making two sets of blocks, one for the 12 inch blocks and one for the 6 inch blocks, and I can't say that I blame her. So part of the fun for me each month was shrinking down the pattern. I must have done a good job because not once did someone leave a comment saying they thought my blocks looked a little off. If you were thinking it, and polite enough not to mention it, now you know why!
There are a few other quilters displaying their month 6 blocks today along with Monique, who will provide the pattern instructions, be sure to check them out.

The goal is for everyone, including me, to have the blocks pieced and tops assembled by July 1. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's finished top. Be sure to follow along and add your blocks and project to our Flickr account.
