Talk about busy summer months! This sure does explain our house. So many good things happening keeping us busy. It is hard to find time for quilting when the weather is making things grow in the garden, that included the weeds. They seem to grow taller than anything else.
In the beginning of August I was able to cut out this block. It must not of been a good day because I cut two of the fabrics wrong. Doing BOM's there is not room for "do-overs".
I put it aside for a few weeks. My next trip to town I stopped at the quilt shop and asked about matching fabric. There was no luck there. Now a wild goose chase so I could finish the block on time. It is really frustrating when this happens.
We searched the fabrics, walking up and down each isle.....ohhhh cute bee fabric, old cars done in a patriotic theme,.....Christmas fabric everywhere. Come on, lets focus on what we really need.
I did find a floral blue that worked. The little flowers had the same pink hue as the pink used in this block and the greens matched too. You can see this in my HST's. How lucky was that. I was thrilled!
Next month I will definitely be more careful when cutting. I love this BOM!! The fabrics and colors are wonderful.
