#7 Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM Block #1

So excited the  Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM  has finally started!!!

I heard from a lot of you how much you were looking forward to the BOM starting, and I felt the same way!! So here's to an exciting beginning and 6 months of great blocks, sewing fun, prizes and surprises, and getting to know each other!!

Spoiler alert:
I won't show you till the end, but I chose to make the original 6 blocks into a Christmas table runner (in Moda Figgy Pudding, with a few other fabrics thrown in), and being as I would need that before the BOM was over I have completed my blocks already, but I am working on at least one other project with the blocks and more then likely another just because it is more fun to work along with you!!

I chose to use a focal fabric for my centers for the runner and an all over quilting pattern instead of applique or embroidery, partly because I haven't done much or either of those and mostly because I chickened out!! lol

 So on with the picture show:

I am apologizing right now for pictures that I obviously forgot to check as I was taking them, and now is too late to retake, eer!!

The quilt pattern is a snowflake and string lights digital pattern!

Have fun with your first block and see ya next month!!

if you haven't signed up....what are you waiting for?
