Today's question has to do with this block I'm making for the quarterly BOM at Faithful Circle Quilters in Maryland. I am fairly good at getting the monthly blocks done and sent up if I like the block. I'm not so good with the quarterly opportunity blocks. I had hoped to get this one done while Sharon was here but no such luck. I'll see her in a couple of weeks so would like to have this one done so she can take it up. I used a half of dresden plate I had left from a quilt I haven't worked on in months. (Note to self, need to finish this one up!) I made up some more blades to make it a circle. I've picked my background fabric and it's time to get the center circle picked. Sharon said I need two so here's what I came up with after she left. Which do you like better? Dark center or medium center? And, yes, they will be circles not folded up rectangles!
Here's what's been visiting at our patio. He's big -- 5" or so long. He's been back a couple of times recently too.
Happy Quilting All!
