Bloggers BOM

I'm not really into BOM's, but I couldn't resist this one!
I got inspired by this blog, this blog and of course this blog! There are many others out there who participate in this BOM, but those blogs I've linked to were the first ones where I saw the first block and learnt about the BOM.
Jackie over at Canton Village Quilt Works is hosting a free BOM and you can read about it here.  The first block is already available - click here for instructions.
Cille over at this blog has a point; the blocks are only 8 inch square, so she has decided to make two for a bigger quilt or perhaps another quilt... I think that is a good idea, so I decided to make two too.


My blocks are going to be scrappy. It was easy choosing these fabrics; they are - except from the background fabric - leftover from a Christmas gift I'm currently working on... The background fabric I have saved and saved - for what ? - you may ask?! Perhaps it has waited for this BOM?! :) I got it from my friend Ragna (no blog) in Norway, at least 4-5 years ago - so I guess it is time to use it!

Jackie, thank you so very much for hosting this BOM! I can't wait for the next block!

have fun with your BOM I am so busy with traveling and so many projects waiting for me at home that I am not even going to think about it - I will have to be trying to quilt every day to get busy and finish some things.

Hello Astrid,

Love the colours you have chosen, love that you are using your stash. I would love to reply to the comments you leave on my blog but you must be set as no-reply so I can't reply. Thanks for the name of the book you are reading at the moment, will have to look that one up.
Happy days.
Bev.xoxo
