Gret twisted my arm (not really) into joining the Gen X Quilters Vice Versa BOM and I’m officially off and running.

My backing fabric arrived from FQS yesterday, so off I went to my LQS to get my solids to match.

This is the first BOM I’ve joined, so I’m looking forward to that.  I’m also looking forward to learning some new skills.  Let’s be honest – all you’ve ever seen from me here are squares and rectangles.  I’ve been pretty good at avoiding triangles up to this point.  But, it’s time to get a little out of my comfort zone and pull up my big girl panties and go for it…..and so I did!

And without further ado – here are the January A & B blocks…

BOM Jan-2BOM Jan-1

We get the February instructions on Friday – the first day of the quilt retreat.  I think I’ll take along my BOM fabrics and I may try to whip out the Feb blocks right away…we’ll see how that goes.

Speaking of the quilt retreat, I’m headed back to my sewing space to press & cut and get things ready for it.  I’m going to go ahead and link up to Sunday Stash since I’ll be working through fabrics that I’ve had stashed for quite some time!

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
