Doesn't it make you happy
when certain opportunities
fall perfectly into place?
You just want to shout
Here's how it happened.
Well, last month was my birthday,
I had recently purchased Australian designer,
Susan Smith's book,
Quilting Somewhat in The Middle,
and then I discovered
Homestead Hearth Quilt shop was going
to begin a BOM for Susan's quilt,
the Lewis Coverlet, the quilt
featured on the cover.
I would say it was a
Hot Diggity Dog!!
It's been a very long time since I
signed up for a BOM through a quilt shop.
It has it's pros and cons.
But the timing seemed right, and I
was eager to play with one of Susan's designs.
I just received month #2
and I've been super pleased with
the shops fabric choices.
I know it's hard to please everyone,
but the fabrics are very close the original quilt
and come clearly labeled.
Of course, there is no law
that says if I don't like something that I
can't change it.
If I miss cut, the quilt is scrappy enough,
I can just add something else.
The center of this medallion style quilt
was the first month's section.
The colors are soft and look
like the quilt has been well loved
for a long time already.
It's part of Susan's cozy style.
This month's section will be a
time consuming working on the floral
garland that's in the center.
Lots of pieces to applique.
My needle and thread are ready.
Until Next Time-
