I’m exciting to join a block of the month club for 2014. I’ve never done a block of the month club, but I like the idea of slowly working through a quilt over one year. ViceVersaLayoutwithtext_zps26b175d7

This is the quilt we will be making! SO MODERN! I joined by purchasing the pattern ($13). Anne Marie, of the Gen X Quilting Blog, is hosting the BOM. She also designed the pattern.

I can’t wait to purchase some fabric and get started on this quilt. If you are interested in making this quilt and joining the block of the month just visit AnneMarie’s blog.

Right now, I’m pondering color schemes. Anne Marie provided some suggestions on color selection. I think I want to include the 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid. main_banner

Any advice for block of the month quilts? Like I said, I’m new to this concept.

Thanks,

    Don’t let the months pile up on you! Be open to experimenting with color, and be sure to follow through to the end. You will be so happy when all the blocks are completed. After you tackle this, maybe try a mystery quilt some time down the road – also a fun adventure! 🙂

      Thanks for your note Alaina! I just got my first instructions via email today! I still don’t have my fabric…I need to hassle 🙂

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
