FIS 2010 BOM progress

 Last week I pieced three blocks for my FIS sampler BOM from 2010. I got just 'a little' behind with this one! Loved doing it though, one block picked per month and they were fairly easy piecing.
The fabrics I used are misc Holly Holderman ones,most are from the Dolly Dresses range.



 Excuse some of my piecing, it seems that you cut things out and double check. Then once they are stitched together, they don't always end up how they should! I am sure I am not the only one out there that this happens to!

My blocks so far. We had 12 to do, I have 4 left to go.
The extra block came in when I made two of the block I chose - Colorado Beauty, top right in the picture.
I will incorporate my second block into the backing, as I don't want to cull any of the blocks from the quilt.
I have a white on white dot for the sashing.
Pretty pretty!

Very pretty, though I can't see any problem with your piecing - and I did look hard once you'd mentioned it!

Very pretty, Bec. Beautiful fabrics, and I think the white sahing will set it all off perfectly...I'll stand-by for the finished piccies..
