Country Threads BOM 2014

Recently I was gifted with a lovely set of blocks from last year's Country Threads BOM by quilting friend Debi.  This year I thought that it would be fun to participate.  Lots of wonderful, scrappy blocks; free patterns; great stash busters.  In this particular BOM you make two blocks each month.  They are the same block, but in different sizes and with different scrappy fabrics of your choice.  At first I had intended to be totally scrappy, but in the end I went with planned scrappy.  I have been wanting to make a brown and red quilt for awhile, so this quilt offered the perfect opportunity.......and it is scrappy and all from stash.

January BOM; sizes 20" & 10":

February's blocks; 12" & 6":

The background fabrics range from lights to golds.  Most of the fabrics are from my reproduction fabrics stash.  They were both fun and challenging to construct.

  1. These are beautiful! I've been meaning to make a red and brown quilt ever since that Cotton Club BOM from a couple years back... the piecing on that one looked too complicated for me, so I passed... now I regret not at least "collecting" the months to save for when I get better at piecing. Ah well... I do have enough to do without it... lol!
