BOM September block

This is the first block of the first month of the BOM started by Jackie at Canton Village Quilt Works.  This block was designed by Sherri at A Quilting Life.  The green background is Clover Dots by Brandon Mably for Kaffe Fassett Studio (Westminster Fibers).  The middle flower blocks are Delphinium in pastel by Phillip Jacobs.  The rest of the fabrics are Kaffe designed - Paperweight in paprika, Lotus Leaf in wine, and Serape in red.  BEAUTIFUL fabrics!  of course, it doesn't take long to figure out I'm one of those Kaffe fanatics... I want to live in this garden - so lush and colorful - what's not to love?!

Elisabeth Augusta in the flickr group for this quilt along had the idea to do 4 of these blocks, rather than just 1.  The blocks finish at 8 inches (or just shy if you're me) and 12 blocks makes for a smallish quilt, so I think I'll play around with that idea - maybe do 1 of some and more of others?  I think I'd like to end up with 24 blocks at the end.  I did the four this month because I like the star pattern that emerges in the middle when these four blocks are put together.  well, and I was so thrilled to get my fabric today and dive into it!  :-)
