Oh, No!!

Oh, no...oh, no....it is another one.  Yup...another freebie Block of the Month.  It is called "Home Sweet Home" from Paula Stoddard of Pacific Patchwork.It can be found on her blog. Quilt Happy (scroll down a bit past the picture of the cute Boston Terrier).  I found this quite by accident.  It is supposed to be a "stitchery" type block each month.  However, in my infinite wisdom...I decided to deviate from the normal path on this one.  I decided to do all the letters and their pieces in wool applique.  (Notice a trend starting here??)  I am also going to go completely out of my "safe" zone of colors.  I had purchased a jellyroll of the new "Sunkissed" fabric and have chosen a few of these fabrics to use for this pattern.  Each letter square is only 4 1/2 inches big....so...my applique pieces are vewy, vewy (ala Elmer Fudd) tiny.  The upside to the size is that it is relatively quick to stitch up...check out my first letter:

I was really surpirsed the background fabric design showed up so well in the photograph.  The Sunkissed fabrics will be used for the borders.
