I happened to recall what brought about the making of the butterfly quilt in the last post. I signed up for a block of the month by Robyn Pandolph while on a shop hop someplace along Lake Huron. It was a beautiful quilt, and, as most BOM's are, very expensive over the time you are receiving them. That was my one and only BOM and I never did make it--just accumulated the whole set of patterns and fabric. Knowing I would never make the quilt, I used the fabric - which was so pretty but just in pieces many of which were quite small. There were, of course, bigger pieces for the blocks. I think I might still have some of that in my stash. Although I know many people enjoy making quilts from blocks of the month, I enjoy picking my own fabric for my quilts. So the little butterfly quilt really cost a goodly sum. I have no idea where the patterns went - probably I put them into our guild bazaar. I am also not a fan of mystery quilts having had a couple of disappointing results with those after a lot of work. Goodness, I didn't mean to sound like I'm complaining because actually I'm not. I figure things like that help you make better choices! Have a great rest of the weekend!
