Two Creative Studios Block of the Month

Over the last several months I have enjoyed watching many people progress on their BOM projects and everytime I go to the Fat Quarter Shop website, I have to check theirs out. I always resist the temptation due to my fear of applique... I would hate to spend that much and screw it up. So when I happened upon Two Creative Studios BOM patterns I jumped right in. The patterns are free and so far the first two months have no applique! (Though I am willing to try if need be...I do want to learn eventually!)

It is a 9 month BOM series of 12 inch finished blocks that goes from September to May. I thought this would be perfect for a baby quilt or 3 runners...(ending in May perfect for Mother's Day or teacher gifts!). I am using Sandy Gervais' Objects of Desire line by Moda, so the colors will work for either of my potential projects. I just started so I only have September's block done and hope to do one a week so that I should be on track with the first 3 blocks at the beginning of December.

The two artists behind Two Creative Studios are Terri Stegmiller and Sue Bleiweiss, follow the links to check out their blogs. Terri is a member of the Twelve by Twelve Group along with Kristin La Flamme otherwise known as Mrs. IBOL. Can you tell how proud I am of myself for figuring all this who is who out? Anyway, there is a lot of great links in this post so check them out!
