In the Piecemaker's group that I try to get to each month, we are now doing a BOM (block of the month). So each month I get the fabric and pattern to make a block. At the end of twelve months I will put them all together and have a quilt. I started by choosing two fabrics although I'll choose more later to put it together. I have felt the need for something in purple so I went with some civil war reproduction fabric, but I can't for the life of me remember who makes it. I'll have to check next time I'm in the store. Here are the two fabrics I chose:
And here is the completed block.
To make these blocks we are using THANGLES. If you aren't familiar with them you should check it out. After one block I am sold!
