It`s Da BOM!

...or not.  Boy do I need practice with piecing.  That`s why I joined the Blogger`s BOM Quiltalong here.

Block 1 by Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life
Each month, there will be a block of the month.

12 blocks each measuring 8.5 inches. I may have to make more than one of each.

This block feels traditional but it`s good to try something different, no?


Canton Village Quilt Works

I`m waiting for my batting so that I can baste this to this and start quilting. Where is it?  It was ordered almost 2 weeks ago.

I hate waiting for pacakges! I'm still waiting for bits that I ordered for our goodie swap! Argh!
Your block has great color to it. Very pretty.

gorgeous block Annabella!

I joined the Blogger’s Bom as well!

When I need to wait for fabrics it almost always means that custom service is playing with the content... ha ha! I don’t hope this is the case for you!

Why do you say you need practice? The points all look super-duper perfect to me!!! Lovely fussy cut corner pieces too...

The block is gorgeous! I wasn't sure about joining this BOM but your block is inspiring me to revisit my stash to be sure. Thank you so much for sharing!

Great block, Annabella! I think your piecing looks wonderful. I get impatient waiting for deliveries after a couple days, can't imagine having to wait more than two weeks! Congrats on 200 followers!! That must be a record doubling your numbers so fast!
