What's new and exciting for 2013? I've joined 2 block of the month clubs (BOM for short).
One is through a local quilt shop. I got my first block on Saturday. It was only $5 and all you have to do is complete the block and return it at next months meeting and you get your next block for free. So, by the end of the year, you could have 12 completed blocks for $5.
Here's my block fabrics - I picked the bright batiks:
The other club is over at Don't Call Me Betsy which is a really cool quilting/sewing blog. These blocks will all be really cool star shapes and they are all paper pieced. I took a class on paper piecing last year and I really love it. It's easy once you get the hang of it and there's no exact cutting or measuring. None of that pesky stuff that takes the fun out of quilting.
There's still room over at the Lucky Stars Paper Piecing BOM, so if you're interested, just click the link above.
