September Bloggers Block of The Month

I just whipped up the September Bloggers Block of The Month designed by my friend Sherri McConnell (A Quilting Life)

This is going to be a great way to use up some of my Kaffe Fassett scraps.

I'm all about scrappy quilts right now.
I'm determined to use what I have and try and get my stash down somewhat.

The Bloggers Block of The Month is a perfect venue to keep the Kaffe fabrics out on the table.
The September block was easy to put together, thanks to a nice tutorial over on Sherri's blog.

It made me think of how much I miss getting together with Sherri, especially now that I have moved.
Sherri lives a few miles south of St. George, just across the border in a small Nevada town.
I went through my archives and found a few pictures of us over the years.
Last April we went to a quilt show together.

We used to get together at each other's homes for sew days, and I learned so much from her about color and design.
Not only is Sherri a talented published designer, and stunt sewer for the famous, she is also one of the nicest ladies I have ever known.

My first block has polka dots too! Sherri's tutorial was really easy to follow. I'm hoping to trim down my stash as well...
