Last week I went to my quilt guild meeting and this month the BOM was my design/idea
I can’t remember what the block is called in EQ, but I’m pretty sure it was in there and I just changed the colors.
Anyways, I made the directions for 2 blocks with opposite fabric placements in black and white.
So guild members would make 2 blocks with the same fabrics and get their name in the drawing twice also!
since it was my design I got to pick the winner, but then I tried to get Sonja to do it, she didn’t really know what to do, so I gave it to our president to pick, after she had told Sonja to pick her name and I said No pick mommy’s name. Well she ended up picking a name out of the basket and drew MY name!! kind of funny, I felt kind of bad that I won, since I had also decided that all the blocks should go to ONE person so it would be a nice big quilt, there’s 54 in there! if I just make one more set it would be a 7 x 8 layout and each block is 7” so that’s a nice sized quilt!
I haven’t decided if I want a border or not, we’ll see, then I’m sure I’ll donate it back to the guild when it’s done
Here’s the EQ sketches with a plain border and a striped border
I kind of like the striped border, finished size would be 57 x 64
what do you think? a plain border or striped?
do you want this BOM pattern? I added it as a freebie in my craftsy store here
