2010 BOM BY AMY - January

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.

Well, so far my good intentions haven't led to much action - perhaps tomorrow! Your fabrics look pretty. Mine will probably be very scrappy as I'm still trying to use stuff up before I buy too much more.

I am joining Amy's BOM too! I haven't pulled fabrics yet so you are ahead of me but will enjoy seeing your blocks come together too!
