I've been checking out quilt blocks on Pinterest, and playing with blocks in my EQ7 program and seeing what I have in my stash that I can best use. I have a small tub busting with blue fabrics and another one about three-fourths full of reds. I had gotten two yards of an off-white/cream fabric from our QoV leader which I'll incorporate in the quilt.
Here are a few of my block choices that I've gotten off of Pinterest:
Ribbon Block found HERE
Party Hats from McCalls
I have the opportunity to get a panel from our QoV leader, but not sure I want to use another panel right now. Time will tell and I best get busy on deciding which block I'll be using. I emailed the two owners of the Courage Block and the Ribbon Block to see if I can use them and both have graciously okayed the use of their blocks. Tomorrow I'll be do a test block for each one to decide which one I will use in my February One Monthly Goal quilt top for Quilts of Valor. I will then use the second one for another top, probably in April. Remember I want to create three tops this year for Quilts of Valor. Since we will be working as campground mangers on the Oregon Coast from May 15th to November 1st, I need to plan out my year with this in mind.
I'm, of course, linking up with Patty over at Elm Street Quilts for her One Monthly Goal.
