Sun, Sand and Sea BOM

Here we are... the last block of this bright and sunny fun filled BOM.
Amy has created the cutest block to wrap up our Sun, Sand and Sea adventure.
Makes you want to take a nap in this tropical setting, doesn't it.
You can find the pattern for this block 
Remember it's free til the end of the month.
Past months are still available for a nominal fee,
and you will find the list of where to find each of them in Amy's post.

I finished up my block and was so excited the other day, 
that I had to add my borders and get it quilted.
I love prairie points, but am no fan of having to quilt with them.
So I made up this "faux" version,
stitching them down just like my appliques. 
Now I can quilt over them with ease.
The colors are so bright and vibrant that I couldn't pick just one photo to share...
It's alike an explosion of happy!
"Island Batik" has so generously sponsored me in this fun filled beach adventure.
The fabrics speak for themselves...
don't you agree?
(Just another reason I love being an Island Batik Ambassador)
A big thanks to
Carol at "Just Let Me Quilt"

I might be just a little bit biased...
but I think we did a fabulous job on this BOM!
I do hope you all agree and we can't wait to see your
 "Sun Sand and Sea" quilts soon!
I'd love to post your photos of your finished quilts.
Send them to   

While the books on this one comes to a close, it doesn't mean that we are done.
Nope, not one bit.
Amy has come up with a brand new BOM for next year.
It's still top secret,
but I can tell you that Pat Broe from "Scrapatches" is baaaaaack.
Happy Dance Happy Dance!!!!!

til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
