Thanks to alert blogger Quilter Going Bananas, I just downloaded my very first Block of the Month (BOM) called Summer’s Gone, from Dorothy Baker Designs blog. The embroidery motif of school children approaching their big yellow school bus captures the excitement of going back to school.
Oh, and did I mention it’s free? Yes, Dorothy is offering her Sweet Nostalgia quilt project free - one block at a time. She explains,
This project will have 12 blocks in total, with one block being released around the 15th of each month until August 15, 2010.
Go here for more details. She even provides links to online references for making embroidery stitches.
