WIP for the Skill Builder BOM

My first time EVER entering a BOM (Block of the Month) Quilt-A-Long! And I am really excited to be participating in this one, as it will last all year long, and the goal is to learn many many techniques and “build up” your quilting skills.
It is hosted and organised by Alyssa Lichner at Pile’O’Fabric.com,whom I have been following since she began her amazing blog. Thank you so much Alyssa for this wonderful QAL!
I went for a white background for these blocks, as I have a lot of spare white, but it also matched best with the small floral prints I wanted to use for this project.
You can view the progress of the BOM and its members at our Flickr Group.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.

Hi Zarkadia,
I love your SBB-Blocks, the fabrics remind me of Liberty/London and the blocks look so fresh with a touch of spring 😉

I was wondering how these blocks would look with fabrics that were not solids. They look beautiful. Are you curious too about the FMQ lesson tommorow?
