I had told myself that I would not start a new BOM this year... but I have been looking at this block now and then and I kept telling myself... why not ?
How can you resist stitching these Sue and Billy characters!!! It was the first time for me though!
When I think about it, the reason why I like this block so much is that I love every single design with a tree of life... don't know why... and this block is a kind of tree of life! That's why I have decided to entitle it "The Tree of Happiness and Laughter".
Another reason for stitching this block is that Reiko Kato, the designer of this BOM published this year in Quiltmania magazine, is a very nice person who creates very charming quilts and quilted objects and she is very creative in the way she finishes them. I have attended several classes with her and she has taught me how to appliqué tiny pieces nicely and how to finish a purse, basket or house box perfectly.
So here I am, with block one completely done ;-) Stitching it has been a real pleasure.
One project at a time - or one block at a time works fine for me.
Now that this block is finished, I can work on another part of a different project.
It seems like 2013 is going to be a great stitching, and quilting year with several finishes.
Thank you all for stopping by, leaving a comment when you feel like it and welcome to the new followers ;-)
