I am a sucker for block of the month projects. Each month you get a new pattern to make a block (well, or two or three or more depending on who is doing the pattern) and at the end of the year you have 12 blocks with which to make a quilt.
Last year I saw that Bunny Hill was doing an adorable basket block of the month. I loved it, but I resisted. I was already doing a Moda club block of the month (really 3 blocks each month) and then got sucked into that Halloween block of the month (that was also really 3 blocks) plus my quilt bee was making a block or two for a different member each month, and so I decided that I just couldn't do another block of the month and hope to keep up.
I did, however, print off every pattern and ordered the button and trim kit. I thought I would just do it a year late.
Then in January, Anne Sutton, posted a cute little snowman block and I loved it too. Now what to do? The snowmen or the baskets or dare I try to keep up with both?
As you can see. It's so far so good with the snowmen. They aren't perfect because I'm not an embroiderer and there is some of that in every block. Also, the blocks are missing their buttons and ribbon because I think I will be happier if I sew those on after everything is quilted. I do have them tucked away in my little box with the rest of the background fabric. And really, the month name is just so you know which block goes with which month, the words aren't on the real blocks.
Let's see how long this lasts.
