Bada Bing Bada BOM!

My block of the week challenge is complete- way ahead of schedule I might add!  My only problem is that I can’t lay out the blocks and sashing to piece because Diego the dog is still in residence.  He would find that WAY too much fun, and get dog hair all over everything.  So for now, those blocks will sit in a pile, along with the already pieced (No) Golden Shadows quilt top, which is waiting to be basted for the same reason.

I absolutely loved this process and will definitely be looking for more block of the month challenges- or really, anything with real instructions.  Who knew I would actually enjoy following patterns?  Opening up a world of possibilities…
