EQ Block of the Month Quilt

I finished the EQ BOM quilt in December, and now that it is on their blog, I can share it here.

The quilt is 35" x 41" (the blocks are 6"). I used cotton batting because I wanted the wallhanging to have an old-fashioned look.

I knew that I wanted to make an appliqué house block with the saying - Having someplace to go is home. Having someone to love is family. Having Both is a Blessing. - unknown, and thought that the EQ BOM blocks would go perfectly. The centre is 12" square

I used Aurifil #50 thread for all the quilting - lots of feathered wreaths.

Used my favourite Hera marker for marking the centre veins.

The past few days I have been cutting out the pieces for a Winding Ways quilt using the GO!, getting ready for tonights Friday Night Sew In.

It has been extremely cold here the past few days (-30C, with -40C wind chills).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
