Design Wall Monday
On my design wall today is the beginning of a brand new project! It is Jacquelynne's new free Block of the Month which starts on June 15.
I am going to be a featured blogger for the BOM, so I have a little head start with the patterns. I want to have my first two blocks ready to show on my blog on June 15th.
I am using these very pale, soft fabrics, which I am a little worried about.
It is a really different colour palette for me, and it looks very blah on the computer screen.
But I wanted to try something light and airy for a cozy, summer afternoon project!
I decided to go ahead and make the first two blocks and if I hate them, I will still have time to restart with new fabrics!
There are three options for the block centres (pieced, appliqued, or embroidered) and I am using the bright pink embroidery floss for my blocks. It will be fun to stitch with over the summer.
You can sign up for the BOM here.
