We are very excited to begin our new BOM for 2015! We are using the Moda Building Blocks pattern, and working on a few blocks each month. For January we completed blocks 1, 13, 23, and 33.

Great blocks ladies! If you haven't picked up a copy of the pattern yet, Fat Quarter Shop has them in stock, as do numerous other online shops. 

February blocks are 2, 11, 27, 42. 
March blocks are 3. 16, 24, 44.

We are so thankful to Moda Fabrics, for sponsoring our "Make it Mini" Challenge! We used mini charm packs of Beach House, to make mini quilts! Our members used a variety of inspiration, added other fabrics, and came up with a great variety of finished mini quilts!
