Red and Green PLUS it came!!!!

What is red and green?  My table top!  I have laid out my red hexies for the Hexie BOM (February) and think I like this layout.  What do you think?

Well that is the red part but what is the green part?  Why March's block for the Hexie BOM.  I don't have them all ready to put into the layout yet but here you can see the wonderful colors that Rose from Custom Quilt Kits picked out for me.

Aren't they great?  I can't wait to get to play with them for the layout.  Hopefully I'll get caught up before another month comes out.  I will be distracted for a little bit though because.....

It arrived!  IT is Block.  Block is the new magazine that is put out my Missouri Star Quilt Company.  I'm sure a lot of you know who THEY are.  This will be a great magazine and for a reasonable price ($5.99).  Perhaps best of all is that there isn't any ads in it.  No wait...something else is even better.  They have nice large pictures so that I don't have to squint to see things.  No wait..That's not it.  It's the fact that they have written up the instructions to some of their videos.  In this first issue, for instance, is the instructions for the Disappearing Pinwheel Churn Dash that they have featured in one of their instructional videos.  Isn't that great?!!!  That means if you need instructions written down to make a quilt you will have it but if you like to watch videos you will ALSO have it.  The best of both!  Check them out.


That's it for now.  Now it's time to go through Block at a more leisurely pace as well as look at the latest issue of Just Cross Stitch.
