I have been busy working on the second Pattern for our Block of the Month (BOM), Sugar Dumplin. Pattern 2 will include February, May, August, and November.
Each one I do I just fall in love with - they are so adorable! They are all 24 x 24 and I chose to make mine two ways: First I made each block in color using a crayon technique. These can be hung as wall quilts and changed out with each month. This is what I was working on in the pictures below. Second, I thought they would be beautiful in redwork, so I made a redwork quilt with all 12 blocks. I will post a picture of that quilt next week. Color or redwork, wall hangings or quilt - they are precious either way!
Here I am quilting February. I did not want to use traditional Valentine colors, so I chose this beautiful pink and green floral fabric and paired it with a buttery yellow. I just love the way she turned out!
My May Sugar Dumplin' is all dressed up for Mothers Day. She was picking May flowers for her Mama as a special surprise and got a little boo-boo on her knee. Such a sweet little Dumplin!
Here is August. She looks forward to apple pickin' time - she LOVES apples...apple pie, apple fritters, apple dumplins, caramel apples, candy apples...Yum! Think I'll make apple cobbler for dinner tonight! Looking for a recipe now!
Gary is busy working on the CD. It will be released in February. I'm sure he's up to having some Apple cobbler tonight!
