More Blocks

So far this year I seem to be concentrating on BOM's, and although they take a year to complete there is none of that must rush and complete this before I begin something else.

In our Craft Forum I have joined a non-swap, but almost a swap, in that we do at least one block a month [chosen by those of us in this 'swap'] and post a photo before the end of the month.  Upon joining we forwarded some 'goodies' and at the end of the BOM those who posted photos are in the draw for the goodies ... divided into a few prizes.  This 'swap' not only saves on postage, it gives the member the opportunity to complete a quilt in her chosen colours.  We can add borders as desired.

As well I was rather taken with the Asian Teapot BOM

This is an applique BOM.  I am trying not to purchase new fabric for this BOM, but ... sadly ... on a trip to the fabric shop I broke that resolution.  Though, I hasten to add, a girl can not have too much fabric!!

LOL Shirley, how can a quilt addict not buy fabric? Love the purple block and the tea pot is so cute.
