New Member

Thank you for allowing me to join this blog. I started my DJ about 7 years ago as a BOM in civil war repros, after I had made 60 blocks I decided that I did not want my quilt to be the same as everyone else; I finished those blocks into a lap quilt and put the BOM fabrics into my stash. Last year I decided I wanted my own version of the full quilt and went through my stash looking for fabrics with an antique feel; I would like to have all blocks different, if possible, I have lots of small pieces as I often buy layer cakes or F 1/8th's; I have prepped a few and hope this blog will encourage me to keep working! I am new to blogging and don't have my own blog. I hope I have attached a couple of photos to this post!

Thanks again for letting me join you.

Your DJs are gorgeous. I love the colors. I've been doing mine in pale colors. I might have to rethink that one.

Billie...thanks for sharing!

Great idea to use the solid blocks interspersed with the DJ blocks for your lap quilt. Looking forward to seeing your new blocks.

I luv your first DJ. I like the solid blocks that you used to set off the DJ blocks. Very cute. I look forward to seeing your new one.
