Polka Dot Girls Block One

Finished the first block or section of my Block of the Month "Polka Dot Girls." that my friend, Debi and I are putting together. I'm liking the way the fabrics that I chose ---Sherbet from Buggy Barn---are looking with the embroidery colors. So far so good! Had a little trouble getting the squares to all match up--part of it was my fault, but part of it I think was the pattern--I'll know when Debi puts hers together and we can compare notes!

Now to think of what project I want to work on next--I have quite a few to choose from and I can't make up my mind--I think I will do another Eleanor Burns block in the 30's fabric, but I have another charms quilt that I want to make of the mystery pattern that you sew the fabric in a certain way putting plain solid squares in certain places and then cut it apart and sew back together and you get a border of triangles--I did a show and tell on that for one blog awhile back--maybe I should do another just for fun!!! I have some bright yellow fabric for the plain squares that should make a nice bright border! Always something to choose from in the sewing room!!!!

Hope you are having a great fall day like we are here in north Texas! Enjoy it while we can!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
