Blogger's BOM #9 May

This month's Blogger's BOM was featured by Cathy over at Cabbage Quilts. It is a jewel box block which something I'm familiar with since the mystery quilt I've been working on is also made up of jewel box blocks! This one was a bit different. It's very small! The block is only 8 1/2 inches square. I really like how it came out and I think the colors are very close to jewel tones! It was fun to work on.


Here are all the blocks so far. I really love all the Kaffe Fassett fabrics together. I'm excited to see how this quilt top will come out. I think there are 5 blocks left to make. I'll keep posting every month!

This was a very busy weekend for me and my family. My daughter graduated from college with a degree in English Literature. I was so emotional! Happy and sad at the same time! The graduation was lovely and only took about 3 hours. We expected it to take much longer since there were 2900 graduates. My daughter is spending one more year at the same school. She's working on a master's degree in education so she can teach high school English. She actually started classes last week! She's back to doing homework but at least her bachelor's is all done.





 That's my son and daughter right after the ceremony! We were all starving and couldn't wait to go eat somewhere!
