This is the second year that I have taught a 10 month BOM. The group was broken into 2 groups who met once a month. Everyone started with little or no applique skills. As each month went along, their skills and confidence grew. This is such a fun class to do. You really get to know everyone and become friends. It is also fun to make a quilt together. I wanted to show how different everyone's blocks were so I have some photos here. These are a few of the students. All heads have been cut off to protect their identities. LOL The coloways go from bold primary colors to Civil War....
They are all beautiful!
I am really going to miss them all! So that is my ending. What is my new beginning? Well.... I have been working behind the scenes to design a fabric line with the lovely folks at Henry Glass Fabrics! The line has a vintage feel of course. It is being released in January. I can't show you what it looks like just yet and I don't have a ship date. I will be back with more details but let me tell you that I am so excited I can hardly stand it. I knew right from the beginning that fabric design was something I wanted to do and now here I am. I have been very blessed and super lucky I think. I am so thankful to all the quilters who have bought patterns/books, come to classes, listen to me speak or tuned in to the blog. Without you guys I wouldn't have made it this far. I owe everything to you guys! That is one of the reasons that I love doing the free BOMs. It is my little thank-you to each of you.
Happy Quilting, Dawn
