BOM......all at once!

How many of you have done a block of the month quilt? I've always wanted to try one, but just can't stand paying shipping charges every month.....give it to me all at once! :)

I found this pattern on the Northern Threads website and I knew that I had to make it! They have the option of purchasing it block by block every month, but I have tons of scraps from my other applique projects that I should use first....so I just bought the pattern. Needless to say I received the pattern less than a week ago and I already have all of the appliques traced and ironed to their fabric, and a few of the pieced blocks are complete and waiting on their borders.

The border isn't all that difficult! There's a pretty neat "short cut" where you sew two rectangles together and then cut them in strips and rearrange them to create the saw-tooth look! The pattern is great, and with directions in full color! It's really easy to follow, I highly recommend it if you love this quilt!!!
