Blogger's BOM #4

I was very excited to make the fourth block of Blogger's Block of the Month! I got a new cutting table for Christmas and felt this was the perfect opportunity to try it out! I wasn't surprised about the cutting table since I bought it from Joann's during a sale. I just kept it in the garage and told my husband that the box was from him. He figured it was some quilting item and didn't seem too curious about it. I did make him put it together for me Christmas afternoon. My son helped him. With a minimum of swearing, it was put together and ready for me to use!! I have a sewing room that I share with our computer and this table is great for the space I have. It folds up and easily tucks into a corner when not in use.

Here's a photo. I only used half the table. I also got a mat that covers the whole table when fully opened. So nice to have my own space. I have been using the kitchen counter. It never works out when someone wants to eat or use the counter to cook.  Imagine interrupting quilting and sewing to cook!! I just love my new table.

Here are my 4 blocks so far! I just love those Kaffe Fassett fabrics. So colorful and fun!! Looking forward to making more of them!


  1. Very Pretty blocks--fabrics are really great together.
    I love my cutting table, too. My husband made mine out of a recycled 4-drawer cabinet that someone was heaving out and added a cut down solid door that he polyurethaned and attached. Great to have your own spot!! Julierose

  2. I am getting ready to make this next block, liking your fabrics, it is realy good fun to have a different designer each month so that we get a different slant on the patterns each time xx

  3. Love your blocks! And new sewing toys are always fabulous! Enjoy!

  4. I like your BOM as well. Thanks for stopping by!! Happy New Year!!!ugs
