      This was so much fun!! Can't wait to start Block 2.

    Here is my finished block 1. On the corners, I used black striped fabric that I plan to use for the borders.

      After finishing my block 1, I decided I would make it a bed quilt as well as a quilt to hang over our loft railing. For the bed, I thought I needed pillow shams too… so I made my own pattern similar to block 1 and made 2 shams. This is one that I finished today.

          Love the quilt! I'm a new member and enjoying using my Tula Pink scraps and other brights from my stash. Hand appliqued - back-basted except for stems -with paper-pieced border.

              So great! Your fabrics really take it in a cool new direction.

                Thanks! Getting this far was challenging, but I am loving it and eager to get the first border on it, so that I can see if it all works.

              I did not buy kit fabrics but tried to duplicate range of colors in similar values. I mistakenly used what I intend for the outer border (more of the gray tone) on Month 1's border. It kind of jumps out against the ecru background for the vase. We'll see how Month 2 looks with the proper lighter backgrounds. I still have enough gray for the outer portion so it may be unified by then after all. Eveyrthing is a learning right? Love seeing everyone's creative expressions!

                  Think mine is going to be a framed one off. Using up some of my dye scraps.

                    I love the stems.

                  Finally got around to posting month 1. I finished before month month 2 came out. There is a learning curve for me with this applique technique. Wish we could have started with a less prominate block. I thought the berries would never end!

                    This is the most time-consuming block--it all gets easier from here.

                    I thought the same thing! I felt like I got better at the applique as I went along and I was actually thinking about going back to some of those first leaves and petals to work on them but then I realized how many there were!!! Yours is beautiful.

                  I have a member of the Quilt Show I think since the very beginning but I have never made any of the BOM's. I am a little behind as I just finished month 1 and starting on the second. I hand stitched the turned edged applique and foundation paper pieced the dogtooth border. Not perfect but I am happy with the results.
