Also, for the MCMB, this 9" Hugs and Kisses block is for Debbie. She's making a low-volume quilt. I was glad to include in it an Aboriginal print I picked up in Australia. It's the large, pointillist- looking fabric in the upper left quadrant.
This "filmstrip block" is the first (January) of the BAM-BOM being offer through BAM: Bay Area Modern quilt guild. You know how it is when you don't have exactly what you want and you're forced to be creative? That's what happened to me with this block. For the little pictures in the film strips we were to fussy-cut squares from a print fabric. Not having a stash print that would work/was the right size, I decided to improvise. I Googled "Florida icons," downloaded ten pictures, resized them in my Page (MacBook) software, printed them on Printed Treasures, and cut them out. One of the little designs is of our new Central Florida MQG logo. I think it works! Background fabric is Moda "Simply Color".
I hurried to finish the February BAM-BOM which was released on February 28th. While the block is really neat, let's just say that I'm glad I needed to make only two feathers. Half of each feather is selvages.
Hooray for being caught up with March BOMs! For the first time, I'm linking up to join Lyn's BOMs Away Monday, on Monday! Linda
