I finally finished the May Granny's Hankie BOM

I love how these blocks are turning out. This one was great because I didn't have to change thread colours all the time. This pattern will be on Denise's site for another two weeks.

For those who are joining in the Hop To It BOM, I used a random number generator to pick Block 12 for this month.
I think I will use the same background fabric for all the blocks, but use a mixture of reproduction and maybe some Bali fabric for the applique. There is a Flickr site for participants.

Oh No! Look what happened to my GO!
Accuquilt was very quick to respond, every thing will be fine.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Your Granny's hankie block has turned out really well :-)
Still waiting for my Hop To It book to arrive in NZ (actually it's being sent to my brothers (USA) who will bring it over with him next visit!) so I'm going to be behind with this... never mind I can dream and maybe collect fabric in the meantime!!

I just finished my Garden Album quilt top. It was a fun BOM that took me a year to do. I would like to tell you, and anyone else who is doing this, that it would be a good idea to increase the block size to 12 -1/2 inches square. That way you won't have to make 3 -3/8 inch sashing squares/triangles. By increasing the main block size a 1/2 inch, you can make them 3 -1/2, a bit easier!

Your Granny's Hankie block is wonderful. And so sorry about the mishap with the Baby Go! I'm glad you'll be able to fix it. There are some times when it takes some strength to get the die, fabric and mat through the rollers. And your mom's quilt looks fabulous!
