What materials did you use? "Sassy" by Sandy Gervais for Moda

What are you most proud of? This project is taking me out of my comfort zone with the patterns and fabrics, but I'm loving it. I'm sure that I will use all these block patterns for other quilts.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! If you're not sure about coordintating fabrics for all these different blocks, get a fat-quarter bundle, because then everything will work together.

I like the little punches of black scattered through some of the blocks. It gives your quilt pizazz!

Thanks! I was a little hesitant to use the black because it's so dark but there were about 5 or 6 fat quarters in my bundle that were mainly black, and I liked them. With the exception of the January blocks, I've worked it so that one block each month has some of the black in it. Hopefully that trend will work with the rest of the months.

These color make your heart sing! You must have worked like a beaver to catch up. Welcome to the madness that is BOM...we get so much inspiration from these postings

Thank you! I do love the colors too. I was pretty busy for a few days, but I wanted to catch up before the July class was ready. It was a great kind of busy because I was having so much fun. I love looking at everyone else's blocks. It is very inspiring.
