September Block #1

Here is my block #1 for the Bloggers Block of the Month organized by Jackie of Canton Village Quilt Works.  The first block is a design by Sherri at A Quilting Life. A different designer will design a block for each month on the 25th of that month.  I am going to use up scraps for this BOM. The blocks finish at 8".  A great opportunity to work on a quilt top without a lot of stress.  I have made probably 12 full size BOM samplers over the years.  I really enjoy mixing it up with different blocks. This will help me use up some scraps. Although it is breeding season for scraps!!  I use so many and the pile does not get any smaller. I truly love, love, love my scraps!!  And seriously, I keep saying that I need to use them up but I am not sure what will happen if I finally do use them all up. 


  1. Hi, Linda, I am trying to resist another project, but after seeing your block....hmmm, I may have to partake!! ~karen

  2. I must have missed the start of the scrap "breeding season" but I can certainly see the results! I'm making this series of BOM too and also using scraps. It's like bailing with a thimble.


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you and I really appreciate that you have taken the time to leave a comment.
