Love these especially one with whirly gig thing in middle! These fabrics are so pretty as well! When do you head south?
Pretty fabrics! I like the variety of block designs.
I love your fabric choices!
True Thanks; I like the next one really well and hope it get at it (September block) in the next week or so---before October 1. We will head out about the 9th of October I think.
Kirstenblake That's what's so nice about the Carol Doak quilt along; every month a completely different block. Clever ones too.
I thought the two fabrids went together pretty well.
Two more BOMs done for the Carol Doak Mystery BOM, September and October. I'm getting ahead so I won't have to play "catch-up" after we spend a few weeks traveling in October to Alabama.
I'm happy to have caught up to my BOM month. I just put November up the other day. December is just a few random pieces for when we put it together .so it's not shown here.
I'm ahead of the game this time. I have my January Carol Doak Mystery BOM done on January 1st!
Love all of these your piecing of them is amazing.
I really like this. It's all paper pieced? I have a couple of her books. Great patterns and beautiful fabric.
WOW! Love the lay out and it is gorgeous...again you fabric choices are perfect
Being late to the show I was able to see all the blocks individually and then the grand ending (layout). That was so cool.These blocks are beautiful! I've used this same fabric(the batik) for tote bags as gifts and it is a very pretty batik. Kind of earthy/hippy which was perfect for the recipients.
True , Terryt1955 , thanks for the kind words. I love the layout too, and love especially it was such a surprise. I didn't envision that very large star in the middle. A friend did it along with me and hers was beautiful too. I think it's impossible not to get a beauty with Carol Doak designs. Terry, I'm going to get some solid or marbled fuschia for one border. I think that will be awesome and bring out the fuschia in the batik. Thanks again, ladies.
Tha's exactly what I did for the lining of the bags and it did indeed bring out the fuschia in the batik. Can't wait to see your borders added to this beauty.
This is stunning. Love the fabrics you choose, how large is it? It looks like a BOM I am sorry I missed.
Sewexcitedquilts , thanks so much. I'm sorry I didn't measure it when I laid out the blocks. They are 12" finished blocks and there are ten of them plus the setting pieces. I will measure when I lay it out again with the remaining rectangles, etc. I must go find that fushcia border before I can put it all together. It WAS a BOM and such fun! Doing one block a month makes it seem like such an easy project.
It's complete! The Carol Doak BOM is over and I've got a lovely 60" completed top. I love it and I'm eager to do the back now. I think I'm going to put together three more blocks and use them on the back with another fabric I was considering for a second border. I don't think it needs a second border so I've got a backing material. I loved doing this BOM and recommend Carol's classes and BOMs.
Beautiful! And I like what you did with the border. It doesn't distract you from the gorgeous center. Make sure to show us the back when you get there!
True , Terryt1955, Dzirin,
Thanks for the kind words. I highly recommend Carold Doak patterns. Terry, I will show you the back when I get there!
You did a great job on this! It's very beautiful!
Wow absolutely gorgeous! Love your quilting in this amazing quilt.
