Block of the Month 2014...

I have spent the day today working on this years new Block of the Month. Not sure of its name yet, but I know that will come to me soon. It has taken a few months to get this far unfortunately, (the heat here in Melbourne has been my excuse :) and I'm sticking to that!). Today was a perfect sewing day.

I started the morning with a finished (at last) centre block, just needed a little trimming to be done. Very happy with the end result! These fabrics are simply perfect for fussy cutting.

Then I added this mixture of blocks. The BOM this year features fabric from 'Peace and Plenty' by Judie Rothermel. The colours are a little different to my usual colour palette, but they have come together very nicely. A challenge is good!

And as the day has moved on the smaller blocks were added to the centre. By the end of the good light today all of the blocks were stitched in place. The only thing left to do is cut the borders and a good press! Oh, and of course another photo.

Until next time,
