Look at this beauty!
This week I received a parcel of goodies in the post from a lovely lady - Kelli H - with whom I've been corresponding since we *met* on the APQ Blogs some years ago.
It's from a Civil War BOM that she saw at a local quilt show. The thing with a BOM is that you only get enough fabric to make the block.
Me: Yep, that's right.
There are no leftovers.
Me: Yep, I've got it.
There can be no mistakes.
Me: I'm all over it.
So then I went and cut the squares the wrong size. Not deliberately mind.
This meant I had to go diving into the fabric stash to see if I had something that could substitute. I found some fabric from Merrit - another APQ blogger I shared emails and little gifts with.
I like the idea that this project has fabrics from both these lovely ladies. I also found some fabrics from Ariane that I had stashed away and forgotten (sorry Ariane) which go well with some fabric Christine sent me. I'm getting a miniature quilts vibe for these.
I also thought I'd use up the last of the blue, brown, and dark cream spot fabric that I've been working with lately.
I'll be making alittelbitbiased's Square Dance Quilt. Here's her version. I like the colours she has used.

There is still fabric left over so I plan to use it in the backing.
