This looks like another very tempting BOM. Oh dear I can see my new years resolution of not to keep starting things not lasting very long Undesided

Golo, you are so fast! and your block looks gorgeous :D

Excellent Golo....so bright and cheery, I think all pinks would work great!!

Pookie, you have to have a yahoo account in order to join flicker. Which didn't matter since I had a yahoo account when I joined the Carol Doak group. Which I'm not active at all but do go and browse the patterns offered there.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CarolDoakQuiltingGroup/

Food for thought.

I think the door hanging thing would be a great idea, how excited your aunt would be to see next months addition. I see a great deal of smiles stemming from that!
I'm not going to do my border till I see what the designer has chosen for finishing it. So for now these blocks will adorn my sewing room all year. I'm planning on hanging this at the head of my stairwell.

Very cute Golo!

I haven't started yet, because I'm not sure which basket fabric to use. I have a couple of fabrics that have a basket weave design printed on them, but seeing yours..I could go in a different direction all together. Hmmm....

I'm wanting to keep this simple, and love your idea FB! Only having to store the small blocks is such a smart idea. My aunt is a very practical person. I have to say I got a little giggle out of your polka dots and crystals idea, PK - not because it's not a darling idea, but picturing my aunt with dots and crystals - nope! definitely not her! If I have something suitable in my stash I'm going to try to do a small seasonal border on each one- I like that idea.

I put a different wall hanging up for mom every month and a lot of the residents would come in to see them each month too, it became a hit real quick and brought her lots of visitors too. lovehearts Norma

I posted the larger version my "bunny block" in my album here.



My friend who's doing the Red Delicious BOM is getting the email and pic of this project, probably as I type. Let's see if she caves (TOO) :lol:

I made lots of comments on my CTTQ post - I'll repeat them here if you wish but didn't want to duplicate if you don't need me to.

I really like your block too FB! I *should* pull my fabrics and get going, but I'm in the middle of a couple of other things right now. I think your idea of cutting all the backgrounds and putting them aside is a good idea.

I wondered if there would be buttons on each block too? I *could* make yo -yos for those because I don't know if I'll have the appropriate buttons for each block?

I guess I over think things? Undesided

You know, Ann, I've seen (and even occasionally done) just small groups of 'random' buttons as embellishment. I probably wouldn't have thought of it, except I did it on a quiltlet that's on the table our Christmas tree was on so I've actually had it in my hands this week...

It might be nice to use just regular buttons instead of specialty buttons. Give it a homey feel?

Of course, after doing the little eyes and other dot-like things on the Red Delicious BOM, I'd guess you could just fuse/turn circles of coordinating fabric in place of the buttons.

Just a thought (or two!).

Thanks, Norma - it's just a quilt cotton printed with squares of colors. Older'n the hills- it's from my early 'country-ish' days.

Now that I think of it, my early days quilting were country-ish because I didn't have a choice!

I certainly wasn't looking for a basketweave fabric. I don't have enough to keep it up for a whole year. Now that I know that the baskets are the same throughout the series, I'll probably just make up a bunch of them as I'm digging through my scrap pile! :)

So, about those buttons... you know if you use shrink plastic (shrinky dinks or #6 recyclable plastic) you can customize your buttons on an as-needed basis... No need to pop out to the store every month, once you've seen the theme...! Thumbup

Gosh Gimpy, you must be feeling better!!! They sure are cute and more pretty basket material!! Did you get that cow drawn for Laura yet??? I'd much rather see a child doing that than watching so much tv, that is creative and she can do that forever. lovehearts Norma

Shrinky dinks are a plastic that you cut and color then bake. They shrink and thicken up... I think to about 25-30% of their original size? I think they're mostly clear plastic so you can make suncatchers, or jewelry, or... buttons!

Here's the official site. There's even a Wikipedia page. There's even a product that you can put through your inkjet printer.

ALSO, you can DIY Shrinky Dinks by recycling clear plastic that's marked with a "6". I believe #6 plastic is food-grade; in our grocery stores they package cookies in the bakery section (NOT the mass market stuff), salads and cold fried chicken. HERE is the link to read about DIY shrinky-dinks!
