Well, I did it. I finally decided to take the big step and start my BOM. I went to the LQS to get some background fabric and came away with an off white with tiny speckles, like paint spatters. Do you know what I mean? I had wanted beige dimples, but they didn't have it. Then I came home and traced the Jan. BOM for placement. I am using a method like Sue Nickles does instead of vinyl. She uses a roll of architect sketch paper which you can see through. I still need to pick out Jan. fabric but this is a start. I figure that since I am needleturning the whole thing, I had better get started as it will take me a long, long time. I don't have a digital camera with me to take pictures. My DH has our only camera with him back east. But by the time I am ready for a photo, he will be here. Judy in AZ
I have posted my second June block, as promised! I used raw edge applique except for the bias stems. Gold thread was used around everything except the stems to give it some contrast and glitz. There is gold in each of the fabrics used in this line.
Thank you so much to all of you checking out the June block in my profile. Any comments are always welcome and everyone is so kind! I love looking at everyone's cool blocks with their wonderful fabric choices! I am always in search of the "right" fabric to really show off the vase/basket and I also try to make sure enough contrast is there so seeing the flower & berry features aren't too difficult. You guys really "ROCK"!!
