The $5 Quilt Top!

In 2010 I signed up for a Block Of The Month in Garfield, MN.
Garfield is a small community about a half hour drive down the interstate.
Population 304.
The main attraction in Garfield is the Common Threads Quilt Shop!

The way their BOM worked in 2010 went something like this:
~Sign up
~Pick one of three fabric options
(Batiks)
(30's Prints)
(Civil War)
~Pay $5 your first month
~If you bring your block finished the next month, you get the next block free.
~If you do not make it to club, or have your block finished....you pay $5 for the next block.


Well, from the title of this post, you may have figured out that I made it to all 12 gatherings with my block completed!
Aren't I a smarty pants!

Let me also mention each of the blocks came already pre-cut!

Now please note that I said this was the 2010 Block Of The Month.
This is the end of 2011.
Notice the unfinished binding blowing in the breeze on this quilt.
I guess Miss "Smarty Pants" better get off this computer and start sewing down that binding!!!!


Oh....and the 2011 Block Of The Month....
the rules changed....
so those blocks are still sitting in their cute little packages waiting to be opened.

Now you all know how much of a procrastinator I can be....
please don't judge me too harshly.  :)

It is great and for $5 how can beat it!?
I just pulled out my DJ quilt that I've been quilting for years now. I won't hold it against you one bit.
