Blogger's BOM for July

This is the July block for Blogger's Block of the Month. It's a Split Ohio Star brought to us this month by Victoria from Bumble Bean Inc. It sewed up quite nicely since the directions were easy to follow. It's a traditional block but I think the split background makes the tone more modern. Victoria is using plaids in her version of these patterns. The look is so different!

Here are my blocks so far! I really like how they look together! Of course, the setting is still unknown so I have no idea what this top will end up looking like. However, so far, so good!!

I plan on doing some machine quilting today. I've neglected my Summer Sampler and have finally decided how to quilt the next block. Custom quilting takes too long! I like allover patterns much better. I hope to pin the layers for my Christmas Wreath soon. I'm trying to choose the backing from my stash.


I plan on watching Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics tonight! I can't wait! I have a hexagon to finish stitching as well as a pair of socks to knit. I won't feel quite so guilty as I watch the Olympics for the next couple of weeks! Go Team USA!!


Have a lovely weekend!
