My BOM Fabrics
What was your inspiration?
Once I got 14 blocks done -- I realized that some of my fabrics, though appearing in the quilt, really needed to be showcased. So, instead of doing the blocks I really disliked (the pointy and spikey ones) I designed a block that would allow me to showcase three fabrics in one block, and then I chose to highlight the 12 fabrics that had gotten short shrift. I love how these blocks really bring everything together! Especially since I have TWO background fabrics. These blocks will be essential in producing a quilt that looks like it is One With Itself. ;-)
What are you most proud of?
That I realized I needed to showcase these fabrics and then figured out how to do it, and it turned out better than I'd imagined.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have fun. Take risks. Do what you want! Learn a ton!
