Now Kylie created out Block of the Month for September and I am really looking forward to seeing the resulting quilts from this one. These are going to be special quilts.
Sadly we have five new Fallen Warriors as of last week. It is obvious that we cannot make as many quilts for every family as we are making for our first Fallen Warrior's family, the Diddams family. They will be the first family to receive Fallen Warrior Quilts, and as such are getting special treatment. Now we need to be a bit more practical to make sure that we can make fallen warrior quilts in a sustainable manner.
As long as we get the blessing of the families we will be completing BOM quilts and sending them off as Fallen Warrior Quilts. We have five to make, sadly. The two quilts that have resulted from the August Twisted Ribbon Blocks will be two of them and I am hoping that we will end up with at least three quilts from these blocks as they are so simple and fun to do. I think it is important that everyone gets a chance to contribute to such special quilts and using the BOM blocks for that purpose achieves the aim.
I think we should aim for fairly traditional scrappy quilts that are more or less gender neutral so no flowers or "blokey" motifs like trucks and the like. If you are not sure what I mean just email me or leave a comment.
I hope that is okay with everyone and now for the BOM instructions:
So, over to Kylie!
