Something New an Online BOM

I have found patterns that were published once a month online and I am trying the Crumb's thing but this is the first time for online BOM and I wasn't sure what this would be like.  So far it is easy. The block that has been chosen is a simple block and your color choices are what is going to make this interesting.
Here is my version of the block
This is a block that goes by the name Crockett Cabin Quilt - Marshall ( 1123a) in Barbara Brackman, Encyclopedia Of Pieced Quilt Patterns. If you change some squares to a different color or fabric it can be called by another name.
Now I'm using fabric from my stash, this is mainly why I'm doing this, it is to use up fabric from my stash. So I have a large piece (2yd.) for background and then I have 2 charm packs,  Acorn Hallow by Kathy Schmitz LLC for Moda.
I guess with it feeling like fall here in NE Oklahoma I
 just had to pick fabric colors to go with how I feel.
I love fall, it is my favorite time of year and to me it is just to short but I'm hoping since we are experiencing fall temps now maybe we'll have a longer than usual fall season.

Now if you wanting to use up your stash too or just try something new go to Jackie's blog and she'll get you going in the right direction.
But while you are here I hope you will take a minute and check out what goes on in my part of the world. Besides my passion for quilts, I love gardening and have fun farm life experiences. Hope you'll come back to check on my progress.

Till next time


  1. I am loving the fall colors in our lovely block. Happy quilting!

  2. I love your background fabric! Where did you buy that?
    Lovely colours! My quilt als has a fall feeling to it, although it is almost summer here.

  3. Hi Kathleen. Glad to see I'm not the only one signing up for all these new quilt-along projects. I've decided to go with scrap/stash too. I love your autumn colour choice.

  4. Hi .. You have made a wonderful block !!
    I love the autumn look ;-))

  5. Lovely block!!! Looks like fall!


  6. Oh, I like your background fabric... Lots of movement but not oo busy to be a background. I have been tempted by this BOM, but I just don't need another set of blocks sitting around waiting to be finished... I have more BOM flimsies than I can count on one hand, and probably that many more that aren't even flimsies yet. Can't wait to see your crumb project.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
