"This quilt started as a learning project for 2013. I purchased inexpensive fat quarters at Tuesday Morning with the thought if I made errors it wouldn't be that costly. Little did I know that as the months went along I was enjoying the challenge of making these little finds work. My favorite block was the paper pieced. Had my head spinning for a couple of days but loved how it finally went together. As you can see I switched out two blocks from the original pattern. As I was going along I made additional blocks as "practice" and found the colors I had taken from my stash worked better than the originals. Plan to use those two blocks on the back.Each month I looked forward to the new block and have to admit I am very happy with this quilt. The borders tied things together and made it more respectable. Thank you for your part and I am started on 2014 Doodle Design. "

Ann's quilt is so bright and cheerful. I love the fabrics that she used.
Kathy is a special quilter, she's my mom. She didn't only do one block a month but she did two! Mom got one quilt put together and is currently working on putting the second one together. (In fact I bet it is all sewn together now) Her quilts turned out so bright and cheerful! I really like the green mixed with the brown/tan. It's a neat combination. I love how they turned out. I know she wasn't really fond of doing the paper piecing block. The seam ripper and her became good friends while she worked on that block, but she was a real trooper and got two paper pieced blocks done that month. So here are Kathy's Quilt Doodle BOM 2013 results....
