Blocks from the Block of the Month Club

 Linda Kling has been doing the Block of the Month quilt from Quilted Threads now for a couple of years. This year I decided to check it out and see if I could do it as well. So I made arrangements , and so far I have 6 blocks done . There are separate blocks that are used in between these blocks but I need to order the fabric for them , as they are not part of the monthly blocks.

Preview of my latest baby quilt top by Wendy F.

    I needed to make one last baby quilt (for now anyways) and I had
    some fabric picked out, but I could not find it. My Mom and I went
    through the whole house and I was beginning to think I had  imagined
    it. Earlier this week I went looking for some fabric for the back of 
   an other quilt but stopped when  I opened  one particular container .
   I found in it  4 of  the fabrics that provided the inspiration for this quilt, 
  the yellow fabric I found stored in another container. It is neat how God
   brought the ideas together in my mind .

Erleen's quilt spread on the table . She did a fabulous job of tying it , you can barely seen the red ties . ( I want to post a little bit of the history behind the blocks and the sashing, so I need to get the details straight first and I will come back and edit this post .)
