While I was on our wonderful bee retreat this week, I worked on several projects including the Carol Doak Scrap Scamble Block of the Month (BOM), a new Barbara Brackman Block of the Week (BOW) called Austen Family Album and a very bright flowery churn dash quilt.
First – the Scrap Scramble BOM. Actually, it is once again more than one block – but very cute and scrappy:
The Barbara Brachman Austen Family Album just started this past Sunday with the first block called Bright Star for Jane Austen. I decided to use Barbara Brachman’s Modernism line of fabric. It is simply gorgeous and I love that she has brought us so many BOMs and BOWs with thoughtful related historical context. Here is block 1:
The pattern came from a Better Homes and Gardens publication called Perfect for Precuts. It was such fun to work on each of these blocks during the retreat and put them up on the design wall for all to see.
I also worked on some hand applique and a new quilt using my hand dyed fabric, however, neither of those are ready for any kind of sharing – yet. Stay tuned!
On the way home, I had to stop and get a picture of this hillside covered with bluebonnets – spectacular!
