Marilynn's BOM Seminole Shop Sample

The Crazy 9 Patch is our local quilt shop. Every year, Martha, the owner of C9P, runs a Block of the Month (BOM) promotion so that quilters can buy a block pattern and the fabric for the month. They collect and piece these block patterns all year and then add some borders and have a lovely quilt. Martha hosts a BOM Extravaganza in February, complete with good things to eat, and everybody brings their personal BOM creations. It is always a fun event here in town.

This year, the BOM block pattern is a seminole borders. Say waht? A quilt of borders, did I say that right? Yup. So she asked her shop clerks, Kimmie, Marilynn and Debbie to put together their quilts to provide inspiration to the other folks in town. What a diverse collection of quilts we will have in February if Debbie's and Marilynn's quilts are an indication of what is to come.

This one is Marilynn's quilt. It is very traditional with a floral panel medallion. And lots of fairy frost. I used about 10 different thread colors and several digitized designs. I did a lot of thread play in the medallion on this one.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
