November Ripples OMG Project
It’s time for our November OMG or one monthly goal project to be announced. We are very thankful that Patty at Elm Street Quilts hosts a linkup party each month. Her monthly linkup has inspired us to finish a different project each month for over the two years that we’ve joined in. This month we’re going to focus on the Ripples blocks that have been arriving all last month from fellow IG Honeybee hive members.
November OMG Ripples Project
By mid-month, we had half of the needed blocks for a generous-sized quilt top. Our beehive was one member short of a dozen, so we were not going to receive 22 blocks. We could make the two missing blocks needed ourself for a 4×6 layout. Alternatively, we could use a 4×5 layout with two extra blocks. Just about every one sent extra fabric which could be used for two additional blocks, and Jan from Cocoa Quilts even sent a few HST pieces from her fabrics.
As a couple more blocks joined the design wall, we found we needed to make another decision. That is should we use a sashing between the blocks or just set them together as is. What would you do? I just adore how the corners come together and form a square. Whether the square is all the same color or four different ones, I find it so appealing. Hence my choice would be to go with no sashing, but we’ll see what Sue thinks. Besides, we need to leave you with some reason to come back to see the finished quilt top!
To summarize, our November OMG is to piece all of the October Ripples blocks sent to us from our fellow beehive mates from the IG Honeybee group. We’ll share this as a goal on Patty’s website. One last look at the blocks we designed along with the link to our Ripples Block October IG Honeybees post, just in case you’d like to make your own.
Ooh-la-la! I love everything about this block and these fabrics.
