Blogger Girls Block of the Month

I decided to join in on this Block of the Month.  In the past when I have done BOM - well, lets just say I have never finished one.  

So my goal was to stick with this one and get the blocks completed in the month they were posted.  

I am happy to report I have block #2 done - which means I have completed my goal for January!  Off to a good start!!!


I am loving everything about this block.  The pattern is great and easy to follow.  I love the colors and the bundle I'm using (Independence Trail by Minick and Simpson) - The quilt will be something more complicated then I have done maybe ever - and so different from other quilts I currently have.  I am so excited about this project!  The blocks take maybe an hour to complete - I did these 2 separately this month.  I think if you sewed them at the same time and chain stitched you could get them both done in an hours time. 


Here they are together - same block but with different placement so it looks a little bit different.  Which I love!  I am so excited about this quilt right now - I can't wait for February's block.  I think this will be easy to keep up with now that I've got 2 blocks down.  

Linking up to Finish up Fridays and Whoop Whoop

It's amazing how much fabric placement can change the look of a block, eh?

Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress
or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thank you!

Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its
a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
