So I have gotten the Block of the Month fever and although the new Sugar Block Club BOM just announced a few weeks ago @ Stitchery Dickory Dock may not be the complete cure, I am sure it will alleviate a few of my symptoms! It does not cost very much to join and I can use my own fabrics although I may delay my start and see if Husband might be up for a nice FQ pack for my birthday, lol! Or I could start with my scraps for practice blocks and end up with 2 sets of 12 blocks by the end of the year. I have enjoyed making practice Blocks for the Legacy Sampler BOM at The Old Craft Store, although I want everything to be perfect so I would probably do practice blocks anyways!.
I have been making the test blocks from the Martinique fabric line (I have a bit from several Moda Scrap Bags) so that I will end up with all the blocks for 2 quilt tops by the end of the BOM Club! I have to be honest though, I just feel like the fabric chosen for November's Block was rather modern and the fabric for the first block screams "country" to me. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the way this block turned out, but "Country" was what sold me on this BOM as I planned for the quilt to go to my mother for Christmas next year.
