BOM

I have been doing a Block Of the Month this year.  It is designed by Sarah Fielke and called Happy Days.  Sarah has previously collaborated with Kathy Doughty on several books and I like her style, so I thought I'd have a go.  You don't get any fabric with this BOM, which is a relief!  I have plenty of fabric I need to use up, plus I like making quilts which are my choices, rather than someone else's.  It costs $60 for the year, which gets you a digital pattern and instructions, and a video showing you how to make the blocks every month.  That's about £3 a month, so I think it's good value. We're down to the last three blocks, so I laid all my blocks out to see if I needed to do some colour balancing. 


It was a very dreary day yesterday, so the photo is rather dark, but it was enough to show me what I had so far.  I think I need a bit more colour in it, rather than neutrals.  There is only one block with an orange background, so I need one more, and I think perhaps one with a turquoise background would be good.  
The last three blocks are foundation piecing, piecing and appliqué.  I'll do the foundation piecing one first as its my least favourite.  Off we go!

It is a beautiful pattern. I like being able to choose my own fabric too. I don't want my quilt to look exactly like every one else's. You're doing a great job keeping up with it.
