Amy's BOM 2010 and Madeline has Arrived!

I have been a little crazy lately ordering fabric! I do not have much of a stash...I tend to buy what I need and use it, most of the leftovers get cut into strips and now get used mainly for Bonnie Hunter patterns. Therefore, I have been ordering some fabric so I can make a few things such as the January Schnibbles pattern Madeline! I picked Moda's "Sent with Love" fabric and may mix in some that I have to make it work for this cute little pattern. I am terribly into polka dots, so I got that either for a border or binding...or both! I can hardly wait to get going on this one though I still have the pieced border left to do on Hannah's Carolina Christmas top.
Last night we cut the fabric for Amy's (Amy's Passions blog) BOM 2010 . This is the first of three she has posted for January--join on in if want, it will be fun! I decided to go with red, white, and blue ish fabrics because I know of a few military people it can go to when done, or it is good for QOV...I am really looking forward to this and have a pile of fabrics set aside for these blocks! This one went together really well, Amy has great pictures and directions on her blog!

Her instructions look fabulous, I've yet to put them to the test, lol. Lovely fabric you've bought, you'll enjoy using those

Great block, you can't go wrong with red, white and blue, and such a good cause. Love your fabrics. You are ahead of me on the CCH. I have the border blocks done, but am putting my quilt together now with sashing. I want mine big to hang down on my queen bed. I love the colors on yours.
