This is the BOM for one of my quilt guilds. Ok..I confess..it's not really the BOM...The real one is a school house and then they give you a different design each month for the center. I didn't really want to do a school house and one of my guild friends (Hi Bev!) said she was thinking about using this instead of the school house as it has the same 6 inch center. She ultimately decided to do the school house and I totally stole her idea. The photo isn't the best..it was taken this evening and the lighting isn't the best in the sewing room..
Funny that the first insert was a churn dash..
I started using up my Sherbet Pips and after I fell in love with this first block I realized I only have 1/2 a layer cake.. the inserts are only 6 inch square finished so a charm pack would be perfect.. I am looking for one or two charm packs of the Sherbet Pips. I have two charm packs of her newest line Little Apples that I would be willing to trade.. Or I have some solids..or I have some Pat Sloan which are primitive in color way or I have some fq's of 30's.
For a whole different conversation... I had chili planned for dinner tonight and then read this post from Melissa and decided "what the heck?" I will use her chili recipe.. Oh my...it was GOOD! So if you are like me and need a good chili recipe that freezes well...try it.. you won't be disappointed. I will say that I won't be adding the tablespoon of jalapeno or the 1 cup of water to the next batch. It was a bit spicy for us and Rich likes his a bit less juicy... otherwise he said he really liked it better than my regular chili recipe which I have been using for 39 years with no complaints... lol
