November Book of the Month

I'm going to try my best to complete a Book of the Month quilt this November, with the help of Supersize 'Em by Debby Kratovil.
I have a lot of commitments this month, the biggest one moving my mother into my house. I've spent two days trying to get a room ready, including painting, but stubborn Sharpie marks will not go away. So far, 3 coats of primer, one of latex color, and another 2 of a different primer.

Sure the yellow of the balls is covered, but the black just won't go away. Maybe I needed to get the oil based primer. Hopefully I'll have better luck tomorrow.  Just a note, do not use Sharpie on your walls!

Anyway, back to quilting.  There are several patterns in the book that look interesting, and here's a sampling.
This pretty one with hearts, though I don't think I've got time for it.  And this one with daisies,
but I'll have to see if I have any black and white flower fabric.

Then there's these

both star based, and very pretty, so a good possibility.  And this one, which could use up my stash nicely.
Which one would you pick?

Happy Quilting!

  1. If you have time constraints, I think that ease of piecing should factor into your pattern choice. The Modern Grace pattern looks to be the simplest of the ones you've shown. Starry, Starry Bright looks to be a winner too, if just one block is 30" square then you could make just one block and add some sashing to increase the size a bit.

  2. Try Kilz oil based primer. My nephew swears by it.
