Cotton Club BOM

I haven't done a Block of the Month with a local quilt shop in a long time. Just recently I went into one of our local shops and fell in love with this BOM. It's called Cotton Club, by Bonnie Blue Quilts. I know some of you are thinking... Ahh..... That's a little traditional for you Sandra!! Yes, I know, but every once in awhile the traditional calls my name. :) My darling Husband is a very calm quiet kind of guy. So, I have made our bedroom in traditional colors to fit his personality. Which works out great since we have quite a few family antiques. This new BOM is made up of 45 (five inch squares) and will hang in our room..... But all is not traditional and plain......... There is a really cool treat that comes with this Bom club...The designers have decided to give out every month an extra project. They will be small quilts. So, I have decided in addition to making the blocks I will make all twelve extra projects.... But I will do it .... my way!!
TA DA!!!! Here is the extra project. And it's in MY colors !!!!!!! This month is done. I just went and picked up next month, so I'm off to quilt.

I understand completely. My husband has a subtle, traditional,style while my style is always evolving. If he were not here I am sure my home would be a lot more colorful. Love "your" version of the quilt block and how you used it in a fun and funky setting.

They are both beautiful!! I am a more colorful quilter also..but sometimes I need a little Thimbleberries!! I think it's amazing how a different fabric can totally change the look of a quilt!

Both are beautiful quilts, or will be. I love both styles myself. Why should one have to choose?

Sandie,
I love both the traditional as well as the bright colored project! Both are beautifully done! You have been so busy! When do you ever find the time! I am sewing together my block of the month I started over the summer. Pictures to follow when and if I finish!
Love, Rosemary
