Quilt Club BOM

Hi Everyone,

Last week we had our monthly Quilt Club meeting at A&A Sewing in Broussard, LA.  This is when we show and tell, discuss quilty topics, and learn new techniques.  We get our new block pattern as we are doing a  Pinwheel Roundabout BOM.

Here is another shot of my BOM for February.  I chose warm colors for my quilt as I am always drawn to those first.

Others in my group have chosen cool colors and I really like those as well.  This one is by Becky Haaland.  Those bright colors are certainly energizing.  The fussy cut center block looks like a sunflower to me.  It reminds me of summer, which is only a couple of weeks away when you live in Louisiana.

Another lady, one in which I do not know her name as of yet, picked out some lovely pastels.  I have asked for her name to give her credit and will update the post once I receive the response.  Some ladies that don’t care for their picture being taken hide their face with their blocks.  I tried to encourage her to show her face, but was not successful.

February

This block was made from the inside and worked around to the outside.  It was not a regular 9 patch in which was made by sewing blocks together.  This was a new technique for me.  I didn’t find it hard as the instructions on the pattern were very easy to understand.

I am enjoying my time at Quilt Club meeting new people who enjoy quilting as much as myself.  Everyone shows off some wonderful quilts they have made and I am always amazed at their talent and creativeness.

The linky parties I usually participate in can be found by clicking this link.  Please visit them and see what others are up to.  There are many bloggers out there who share their tips, projects, and tutorials to inspire us.

That’s all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hi Suz,
      Thanks for the comment. I’m having a good time with the different block each month. This month’s block teached me how to press the seam in a swirl to reduce bulk. Can’t wait to show it.

      1. That is a sweet block. I like warm colors and I’m trying to break out of my “rut” by trying different color combos. I do like the second block with the sunflower in the middle. I can’t believe summer is almost there in Louisiana! We’re having rain today.
