BOM (Block Of the Month) - Number 11(s)

Hi There!

Well, as some of you might remember,
I decided to sign up for a BOM
(Block Of the Month), at our
local quilt store.

Here's Block # 11 and, to be honest,
I truly can't wait for this one
to be finished!

And, as I've mentioned before,
it's not quite my "cup of tea",
but if I add this and that to it,
it just might please my senses.


Now, remember, this is a BOM....
a "sampler" quilt, right?

The colors are too boring - too blah-blah
for me, anyhow... *s*

While surfing the web, this summer,
I came across THIS QUILT!!!

Now, THIS QUILT has 14 pieced blocks and
some that are appliqué'd, too!

Soooooo, I purchased some of the
BOM fabrics and decided to
do the 2 extra pieced blocks, right?

Now, my friend Frummie
had sent me a bunch of block
kits and their patterns.

I grabbed one of the patterns that pleased me,
used the BOM fabric and made a spare block,
so that I could make

Align Center

I showed this to Gilbert, without saying a word,
and he asked,
"Is that the Block Of the Month?"

I replied, "No, it's one that I made."

So, he replies,
"Oh, it's a Block Of the Rosa."

"Nope," I replied,
"The pattern comes from Frummie."

"Oh then," he says,
"Its a Block Of the Frummie."


Okay, okay... but it DID sound funny!

Have a great weekend!!!
