Since it is the first of the month, it is time to write about the latest, and last of the blocks for the Blogger Girls BOM project. I can't believe that this is nearly the end. Next month, on July 1, we will have the big reveal of our finished quilts--I'm pretty excited about it.
I know that I have some new followers, so to fill you in, I was asked to participate in Monique Dillard's FREE block of the month program for this year. Each of the participants was asked to choose a block pattern and then Monique designed a really stunning setting for the blocks. The patterns are available here. Each month, you make two versions of the same block pattern, but alter the value placement and/or tweak a few elements in order to produce two, very-different looking blocks. It is really fun and it is amazing how the blocks look nothing like each other.
This month is also a two-fer. A little birdie told me that Monique is also sharing the pattern for the alternate block. You can find her blog post about it all here.
So without further delay, here are my two versions of the final block, which was selected by the wonderful Lissa at Moda Lissa:
You know that I can't resist some fussy-cutting, and did so again on the first block.
The second one was lots of fun, too.
This is one of the alternate blocks needed to complete the quilt. You will need to make 12 of these to set between the 13 other blocks.
Feel free to check out the other participants at their blogs. They are making some gorgeous versions of their own:
