I know I said I wasn't going to make Hazel, but it looks like I've changed my mind.
I think it's the Fassett fabics that finally swayed me. That and making the samples - now that I'm making samples to show members how to make the blocks each month, it seems silly to stop. So, I've just been carrying on..
Do I have time for this? No I really don't. Have I found time to squeeze it in? Yes I have so far and now that I'm this far down, it looks like I will complete the top. I really didn't want to - I have other BOMs waiting in the wings that need my attention. But the Fassetts have been calling me and I couldn't resist. At least I'm using stash fabrics. And now the idea of having a Fassett around the house really appeals so I can't wait to finish!
What do you think of this blue? I thought it was a great zinger at first, but after having it on my wall for a few hours, changed my mind. It just clashed too much. I wanted a calm blue enthused quilt. I think the pattern really calls out for floaty fabrics and dreamy colours. But not my Hazel.
And the funny thing is, I didn't want a green quilt. I just didn't. And now it's happened and I love it. I really think it's gorgeous now. You can see these Fassett greens below just work so much better.
This post is related to my current free BOMs 'Hazel' and 'Little Hazel'
To take part in my free BOMs, you simply need to be a member of my BOM Group
This 'Group' used to be on Yahoo, but last month I moved it to Facebook for technological reasons
My Facebook BOM Group is a huge improvement from the old Group format - uploading images and connecting with other members is easy now - it's really years ahead of the old platform.
If you were a member of the Yahoo BOM Group - you will need to move to my Facebook BOM Group in order to continue taking part in my BOMs. To do this, sign up to Facebook and then search for "Esther's Blog: Quilt BOM Group" OR simply click the image above.
For those of you who don't want to join Facebook, you will be able to download the monthly block installments right here on my blog.
