I couldn't resist,
couldn't wait a moment...
to make one of the blocks from Open Gate!
It's a free six month block of the month from Monique D. called Blogger Girls BOM.
Several bloggette's are helping her and you can
see different versions of this same block
on their blogs.
I plan on making a second block of this pattern...
so that I can have 12 all together.
I have a nice little collection of scraps from a friend that she was getting
rid of... fabrics and colors that I would not normally gravitate to but
like them just the same. I am happy to be using them for this project.
Last evening I went to a meeting at my local quilt guild
and this was one of the quilts that was in the Show and Tell.
The person said that it had been a block of the month but
she did her own setting for it which was replicated from a
1800's quilt to go on her antique bed.
I think it is so beautiful so she let me take a photo...
I thought I would share it with you.
What do you think?
