Join me?

My friend Monique Dillard at Open Gates Quilts is kicking off a new - FREE - block of the month to start the new year!  The Blogger Girls BOM will start January 1 and will feature a 6 block quilt.  You can make a small quilt with 6 blocks or make 2 of each block for a larger quilt.  Here's Monique's version of the quilt.

The following bloggers will be sewing along and posting their versions of the quilt.
Monique from Open Gate Quilts
Sherri from A Quilting Life
Thelma from Cupcakes 'n' Daisies
Lissa from Moda  Lissa
Denise from Quilter’s  Window
Nicole from Sister’s Choice Quilts
and me - Stashmaster

At the end of the 6 months, you will be able to download the finishing instructions.   And did I mention?   It's FREE!

Here are the fabulous fabrics that I'm going to be using - Field Notes designed by Blackbird Designs for Moda.

I can't wait to get started and see all the different quilts!

Supernova, finished!

I had fun creating this Supernova quilt for my daughter's bed.  She picked out most of the fabrics and did a great job with her selections.   It was a fun quilt to create - very freeform.   I don't think my sewing room has ever been as messy while making a quilt, but everything is cleaned up, scraps stored away and I'm ready to start something new.

The pattern is from the book Quilting Modern by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen. I will definitely be making more quilts from this book.But the best part is, when I showed my girl the finished quilt top yesterday, she said "I LOVE IT!"   I couldn't ask for better than that!
