Welcome to my turn on the Fat Quarter Shop 2013 Mystery Designer Block of the Month blog hop! I'm so happy you are here. I'm a big fan of the FQS Block of the month program and would certainly recommend trying it out if you haven't so far!
This year, Fat Quarter Shop is using Avalon by Fig Tree Quilts for their annual Designer Mystery quilt. The fabric is light, a little whimsical and grounded with a bit of navy, which you’ll find peppered through the quilt. For a little treat, you will receive a MINI Charm Pack of Avalon with the first month’s block! A taste of the fabric before the club kicks into full gear. Each of the twelve sampler blocks is designed by a different Moda designer and feature rows of baskets, stars, flowers and houses.
Each month you’ll receive lots of fabric and lovely instructions to complete that month’s block. The quilt is suited for everyone, from beginners to seasoned quilters.
The club is almost half full now, so sign up before spots run out!
I was actually lucky enough to test the Vintage Modern block of the month in 2012 and had the best time making it! I was so impressed with Kimberly's attention to detail and how well all the blocks came together.
It was hard to pick my favorite block.
They were all so fun to make!
I wish I could show you the whole thing, but I don't want to spoil it for you.
This time around, we were asked to design a star block. And, because of that, we were asked to tell you about our favorite star. I tried really hard to come up with someone who was cooler and certainly more current, but I'd still have to say
Yep, after all these years. Still feeling that puppy love. (So cool, right?) A few years ago Camille and I went to a Donny and Marie show for our birthday and we had the best time! Maybe a little too much fun.
I had always wanted to see Donny in concert as a teenager and never did.
Now I can cross that off my bucket list.
For our friend Nadine, we carried around a Nadine head on a stick and took pictures with Donny (Hi Nadine - she is a big Donny fan too). And believe it or not,
no alcohol was involved. ;-)
Donny was amazing! Marie was okay too.
So put your favorite Donny Osmond record on the record player and get out your rotary cutters. It's time for another Fat Quarter Shop Block of the Month. I can't wait to join you!
Oh, and Fat Quarter Shop is having a give a way so head on over and enter. Make sure you stop by and visit Camille, V & Co. and Kate today for more star fun!
I'm a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll, what about you?
