Those participating in the Whimsical Garden BOM met Tuesday afternoon at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, three of the participants show off their first month’s block.  Some chose to leave the bird’s tail off until the sashing is on because the tail extends into the sashings.  Great job gals!
Above, Chris shows us the block that the participants will be working on this month.
Erma participated in the Cotton Club BOM last year and showed us this quilt top that she had just completed.  I admire anyone who can do such beautiful patchwork, especially with such small pieces!
Recently while blog hopping, I saw this beautiful quilt on Fabrics And Flowers and left a comment about how much I liked it.  I didn’t realize I was entering a giveaway.  What a surprise I got yesterday when I received the pattern for this lovely quilt.  I’m going to take advantage of our current snow storm, and try to get a good start on this quilt!  You can purchase this pattern at Fabrics and Flowers.  Thanks again Sharon!

On Another Note: You will want to read With Heart and Hands and see the many many variations of the disappearing 9 patch.  Wow!  Michele shares her cutting instructions and links and ways to turn a simple block into something that looks complicated!

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

You must be a good teacher! Their blocks are looking great. I have my cotton club top finished but for the borders. I'm going to take it to retreat to finish those. More space there to lay things out and no dog hair. LOL.

I do love those whimsical blocks. Those are very sweet!

I love the Cotton Club quilt. A lot.

Congrats on your win. How fun to win and not realize you we're entering the giveaway!! I love it when things like that when you buy something on sale at the store and then get to the checkouts to find out it was even MORE on sale!!

The BOM blocks look great. Love seeing the quilts, too.


Very Pretty blocks. I hope your world is not as snowy as ours. I posted some photos on my blog today. Hugs Judy
