    I'm enjoying looking at all of the finished quilts and the quilts in progress. My world has gotten so busy that I don't have near enough time to sew lately but I did get the first round of houses done and used a panel for the center and background, actually pieces of several panels. It needs another border, maybe a piano key or log cabin style. Not sure when or if that will happen. I'm thinking I will have plenty of projects for the next generation to finish! I did make a compass using my first fabric choices and a single house to see what the quilt might have looked like if I actually found time to make it. For now I have numerous ideas for quilts and am having to prioritize. Plus I'm trying to get a few of my rulers finished with instructions before the local quilt show this fall.
    Annis, as always, your work delights and amazes. Spectacular design with the wonderful panel used as background. I will look forward to seeing what comes next.

      I know it is late, but I finally finished my top. I just love this project. Now I am getting the backing fabric ready. It will probably be a while until I finish it all, but I am excited to see the top done finally.

        Great accomplishment! I know you are glad the top is done.

          I'm so excited. I won the Past Presidents Award for my "Color My World " at the Omaha Quilt Show. this year (2022). I loved making this quilt .The freezer paper piecing was new to me, but I love it now and have used it in other patterns. I used Fairy Dust by Tula Pink for my background and my stash for the houses and trees. So many people commented on the quilt and said they had seen the patten, but had not made the quilt. I think several more members will be making it now.

            Congratulations! Your quilt is beautiful. Quite a few of these are being entered into shows and winning awards. It was a challenging project but worth the time and effort.

              After looking at this for the last 7 months since I finished the piecing and working up the nerve to quilt it, I finally finished my quilt. I call it Color My World with Sunshine and Blue Skies. The sun being the middle medallion and the blue skies the background. I’m so pleased I took this journey last year and have a wonderful gem to enjoy. Thanks to Barbara for all that you put into these BOMs. I could not have done this without you and your encouragement. The photo isn’t as good as I would like it. The quilt really isn’t wavy but just the way it is hanging on my mantle and the camera angle. The fabrics used in this quilt were almost exclusively Ricky Tims hand dyed scraps that I had. I did use a few of his hand dyed from my yardage for variety of color and of course the background was not one of his fabrics. The quilting took about 30 hours and I used 30 different threads. I did mostly outlining and quilt in the ditch quilting doing more details in the center medallion, trees and roofs. The quilting in the blue background was meandering to represent the clouds in the sky.

                Thank you, Christy, your comment means a lot to me.

                Your quilt is wonderful, I especially like your trees, great quilting. I tried several shapes on the trees before I was satisfied, yours are perfect!

                  I finally finished Color My World and entered it in the New Braunfels Quilt Fest. I received an Honorable Mention ribbon for my work. I'm thrilled. This was a delightful adventure! Thank you Barbara Black and Wendy Williams

                    It is great seeing so many of our Block of the Month quilts entered in shows and earning awards. Great job--congratulations!

                  My Colour My World quilt was entered into our guild's Exhibition 2 weeks ago and I was thrilled to have won a Judges Commendation and also Best quilt label.
                  I also got to meet Wendy Williams and showed her a photo of my quilt. She took a photo which I was honoured by.

                  Fantastic quilt to make. Thank you Barbara Black for your guidance.

                  Now back to Garden Party Down Under.

                    Congratulations! Well done.

                  Morning from sunny England.
                  I replaced a couple of the skyscrapers with the Statue of Liberty and a lighthouse. Really enjoyed this BOM and learnt a lot of new techniques. Thank you Barbara for your support along the way.

                      I managed to finish the border background (the grey mottled batik) by dyeing and then sponge painting similar fabric. Whew!

                        Color my world fit problem. The last section of tall buildings is about 2” bigger than the inner section. How do I fix this.

                        Personalised top centre house to look like ours.
                        Embroidery added in several places because I could ( sometimes to cover an oops! )
                        in Loving memory of my brother Jerome who coloured my world. What a journey, I learnt so much.
                        Its perfectly imperfect. My first quilt using a pattern. Couldn't have done it without you Barbara.
