Looking forward to TWO Block of the Month Quilt Alongs

I decided to try something new and join in two.  They are both free and the blocks are cute and fun! 
Here  is my January block for Sew Kitschy

Here are the fabrics I'll be using for this project.
 This one is called Sew Kitschy by Kristy at her blog, Quiet Play, and they are retro kitchen blocks.

Also I'm linking up with Kristy because she's having a linky party for everyone who is participating so you might want to check out the others! 

 Here are some cherry fabrics that I got at JoAnne's tonight.  They're 40% off and I had an extra 25% off coupon!  They'd be so cute in a block of the month or for an apron, etc.!

This is the other one, called Blogger Girls Block of the Month II and you can find the info. here at Open Gate Blog

Blogger Girls Block of the Month II - Free Quilt Along
I haven't made the block for this one yet.  This photo doesn't do the blocks justice and there are several bloggers doing their own versions so you can see different color combos, so I encourage you to check that out.

I also want to give credit to Julie the Crafty Quilter because she featured all sorts of BOMs and Quilt Alongs on her Sew Thankful Sunday post and I'm linking that here in case you'd like to check that out and that's where I found the two BOMs I'm joining.

Good for you, Sheri! I love both of those BOM's that you're doing, but I'm only going to join the one at Open Gate. The aqua and red/pink fabrics that you're using are beautiful!

Oh, I signed up for one of the other BoM's that Julie C pointed out.... The Paper Piecing Vintage at Sew Hooked! She is an enabler !! lol

O.K., so I've been looking at your block since you first posted... and sorry about this; I just wasn't sure what it was? So today I finally thought, hmmm go check out the site she is doing the block of the month. And now I know... sorry, I just kept thinking, I know it's going to slap me in the face when I find out! Yep, consider me slapped! Lol...
Oh, and I do love the cute dog in the last post... soooo dang cute! I like how you pointed the ears too. I may have to get busy...
Thanks for sharing.
