January 2013 BOM

For New Year’s Eve, I decided to work on my mystery block-of-the-month for January 2013. Yes, one day before the official start of the year, but what a great feeling to be a little bit ahead!

My regular readers have been following my progress on this mystery BOM program designed by Carol Doak. You can still join her Yahoo group and get the mystery BOMs by clicking the link in the right-hand column of my blog. You can read about my November block here.

For the December block, the group made setting pieces rather than an actual block. I decided to wait on making my setting pieces until after the mystery is revealed, so I can decide if I want to use my 2 main fabrics or an accent color instead.

After this January block, there are 2 more blocks to complete. Then, the mystery will be revealed and we’ll learn how all the pieces fit together and how to finish the quilt top.

Here’s a look at my January block:

This block will be the centerpiece of the project. Can’t wait to see how it all comes together!

Enjoy and happy 2013 to everyone!
