Amy is having a block of the month, and I decided to join. I haven't done one before, and my mind tends to wander, but as Amanda says, "I'm going to give it a go".
Amy is doing hers in red, white and blue, but I have decided to use yellow or gold as a background, and lavender or purple, and blue. I hope that it turns out pretty. I had lots of the gold left over from my Iowa (Carolina) Christmas, and I think this is just the place for it. So far, Amy's blocks are calling for 2 1/2 inch strips for the background, and I have lots, in addition to another full yard. I think it will be fun, and Amy is very imaginative, and her quilts are beautiful, so I have confidence that the blocks will be very pretty.
