Home Is Where The Heart Is - Block 1


Joy, Karene and I are doing a BOM quilt called "Home Is Where The Heart Is" by the Stitch Connection. We got together on New Years Day to swap fabrics and start constructing our first block. I can't wait for our February get-together.

Adorable! I love the blocks for your January project, too. You've really become quite the seamstress, Yvette.

Wow! I just love that new BOM!! I can't wait to see more of the blocks! They are just soooo darn cute! Are you doing the applique by hand or machine?

I was looking around on the Stitch Connection website and found that I have the pattern for the "Christmas Throughtout the Year" We started to do it in quilt guild but I have not started mine yet.

This is a wonderful BOM. Can't wait to see the rest of the blocks. Also, love your Dear Jane blocks and the Affairs of the Heart. Such nice fabric.

Karene said...

LIAR, LIAR !!! You said you were going to use all one color to machine applique my friend but I see you actually did all the color changes ! You are OCD...ha,ha,ha!!! It looks great!

So cute. I did the "Snowman Collector" by the same designer and love the way it turned out. So cheerful!

Beautiful block.
Thank you for visiting my new blog. I hope to meet new friends through my blog. I have seen lots of beautiful quilts so far.

I will be adding more this weekend because we are getting a heavy snow and I am not going out.

Isn't great to make a BOM with other quilters!! and to share your stash makes it all the more interesting. It looks like we are going to see lots of eye candy.. the block is absolutley adorable.

Yvette!! Yours is awesome too! (Just saw Joy's on her blog) I really like the pattern ya'll are doing - hope I can do it soon, too. (I guess I had better finish one or two of the other six projects I have ongoing....before I start another?!) LOL
Happy quilty hugs,
Jacque
