Bloggers Bom Blocks

Well it's only about 9 more sleeps until the next bloggers bom block is revealed (it will be gorgeous Stephanie from Loft Creations turn for November) and I'm finally getting up pics of my first two blocks. Well, four actually! Sherri from A Quilting Life kicked off the first lovely block, and to be honest, while I knew I was going to use Keiko Goke fabrics, I couldn't decide if I liked the lighter one better...


or the darker one.


In the end I've decided to put two of every block into the quilt. Next came Vicki's (Field Trips in Fiber) gorgeous block, here is the lighter one...


and the darker one (phew, pretty bright!!)..


What a fabulous block of the month to take part in. I'm loving these blocks already and can't wait to see the next one. All thanks to Jackie (Canton Village Quilt Works) for putting together such a fun bom.


And while I'm counting sleeps...only 3 sleeps til the Stitch Day at my house with Maree and all of you who have decided to join in the fun (you know who you are!!). See you at 10:30 on Sat.

Millie will be looking forward to meeting you all too. Here she is beautifully guarding my star quilt...


...right before she walked all over it!!! xo

Oh... wow... your blocks look like little paintings!

Theresa said...

Enjoy your day and of course showing off your quilt....it's way bigger than I thought...thanks Millie for the perspective!

Stephanie said...

I just love both versions of your blocks. Now you can make 2 quilts or have 2 of each block in a quilt. It'll be stunning--just like the star quilt Darling Millie is guarding. Can't wait to share my BOM.

Your blocks look great in those beautiful fabrics. I love seeing how different the blocks look with different fabric choices.

Looks like Millie has settled in perfectly.

Jackie said...

The fabrics that you chose for both versions are just fabulous! Love the bright, fun and whimsical feel. Looking forward to seeing your version of Stephanie's block! Don't forget to put them in the Flickr group!! They will be stars. Love Millie... too cute!

Anna said...

oh I love Millie! I wish she and Enzo could meet! I am glad you decided to make 2 of each because to tell you the truth I loved them both!

I LOVE those colors... what a fun and bright and Cheery quilt you are making! I will have to check out the Bloggers BOM. Have fun with your visitors..I know I love my get together times! :)

I too love those blocks. The fabric is perfect in my humble opinion. Funny how dogs always have to walk over or even sit on a quilt. Mine did that too, whenever I was sandwiching a quilt. And looking at me as if saying, don't you dare to make me move ;).
PS: have fun on Saturday. Hope we'll get to see what you all been working on.

Great blocks! I can see why you couldn't decide which one you liked best! Your star quilt is lovely too, and clearly passed Millie's inspection!
