DWM 3/28/16 & Catching Up

On my wall today: First Saturday blocks, a BOM series from my LQS. We're eight months into the current series, so there are eight of the main blocks (the stars) and eight of the alternate blocks.

The main block is challenging; those side units have a lot of bias seams and points to align with other points. This is not a block to rush to put together the night before (or the morning of) the meeting!

I like the color palette, which is inspired by the Roman road. I seem to be alternating between very bright projects and neutral projects lately.

I missed posting a stash report yesterday. Last week I used 2-1/2 yards for the backing of Positively Radiant. No yardage in. I'll post a March stash report recap and goals update this coming Sunday. After all, there's still a couple of days left in March to add to or reduce the stash....

In other exciting news, I'm participating in the Paintbrush Studio New Block Blog Hop and I'll be posting my block, with tutorial, on Wednesday this week. Meanwhile, check out the details and today's block designers with host Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl. Be sure to sign up for the giveaway, a half-yard bundle of the Ocean Sunrise palette.

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.


  1. I really like the way the blocks interact in the BOM series. I am excited about the block blog hop this week and look forward to seeing your design on Wednesday. :)

  2. So pretty! Love the color palette.

  3. It is pretty. Great job with those points!

  4. The BOM is beautiful. I really like how those two blocks fit together and the secondary pattern that's made.
