THIS YEAR....

...Congleton Quilt Group are running a foundation pieced B-O-T-M ... you know me .. I like a B-O-T-M .. this one is also a miniature!! .. and I do like to challenge myself .. so I thought .. why not?

For each month there are 4 blocks to make ... January are done ..

... having done , and enjoyed these .. I looked around for another foundation B-O-T-M ... and found one .. posted by Kirsty at www.quietplay.blogspot.com .....Off I went thinking .. how hard can it be!!!!!

WELL.. hard !! I spent ages on this one ...


I like it now its done .. but wont be doing it again!! lol x I used some of the fabric from the sale as my potential borders x...


It was only after I finished I read that this is one of the EASY patterns!... oh well! we will see how far I get xx  it can always become a cushion!! lol x

Your flamingo is beautiful, and that border fabric is ideal for the zoo animals quilt! Will have to look out for something like that myself.

Quiet Play does some amazing paper piecing, but Gosh they are sometimes complicated!

I tested this pattern for Kristy and I found it fine, except for the eye. That bit was very tricky!! I think you will be fine with all of her blocks.

Your flamingo is fabulous, so it was worth the pain!! Paper piecing is ok, but not for me really!
