2012 is wrapping up and with that comes the end of the Block of the Month program I ran at the shop this year. We started with our first block last December and just finished up with our final block in November. The pattern we chose is by Nancy Halvorsen for Art to Heart called “Count on It“. It was one of the most successful BOMs we’ve done so far at the shop with over 50 customers joining in on the fun!
Take a look at some of my finished blocks!
I can’t believe it’s been a year since I picked out the first set of fabric for that cute little Santa. <3
All year long I kept wondering how I would finish my blocks. In the “Count on It” book, she backs all of hers and uses them as single quilted blocks to display in a cute wire frame. I had been debating throughout the year if I wanted to sew mine all together or just do what she did in the book. So this weekend I grabbed all my blocks, sat down and decided I’d sew them all together. I think I’m more in love with the blocks now that they’re all in a quilt top together. :)
One of my favorite blocks – April with jumbo ricrac as an accent piece. :)
I love Santa’s button holly berries too! The details in this BOM are just soo cute!
You probably couldn’t tell after following my blog for a while — I LOVE machine applique!!! Haha! :) Like I said before, I’m so happy with how this beauty turned out! I’m so excited to get it quilted and celebrate the upcoming year with it in my home. <3
