I would have had two starts because I signed up for two of Bonnie's classes, but I ended up giving one of the class spots away to a friend who really, really wanted to take her Smith Mountain Morning class. As you can imagine, the classes filled up quickly and we ended up having to have a lottery for SMM. I figured I can make that quilt another time since I have the book :*) But I did join in on the fun in the Jared Takes a Wife class and had a ball!!! You can click HERE to read my post about that class.
I finished up these two blocks in class....
All of them together so far ....
These blocks look nothing like Bonnie's quilt - here's a picture of me and Bonnie in front of her quilt....
I graphed the block to half the size (6 inches finished) because I want my quilt to be a small wall quilt - maybe 16 blocks max in a 4x4 setting. This picture gives you an idea of the actual size of my block....
And of course, my bright solids on black background is a huge departure from Bonnie's colors too LOL!!! I'm naming my quilt Amish Beauties because the original block name is Blackford's Beauty.
Did you start a new project this month? Share it with all of us HERE at Cat Patches!
And I also wanted to let you know about a great giveaway going on. Remember my friend Jacquelynne Steves? She is giving away a copy of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7! Go on over and check it out HERE!!!! Don't you just LOVE the cute block she designed for this issue?
