Block of the Month finished

Two months ago I won the Common Threads Quilt guilds Block of the Month blocks.  I got about 30 of them and since I wanted a bigger quilt (they are 6" finished blocks) I had to make about 50 additional blocks.  And it still wasn't big enough so I had to make a lot of borders.   The check fabric kind of makes me dizzy but I still really like it. 
I just quilted the square to follow the pattern on the inside, and x'd the outside border and hearts in the solid read border.

We gave our friend Sara her ribbons for her birthday on Tuesday.  I took pictures of everyone's section there on my iphone, however I haven't download those yet.  But here are my ribbon and my friend Janice's ribbon.  Her's is the paintstick leaves ribbon on the left and mine is the celtic one on the right.
I have been scrapbooking with paper the last two nights and getting into it and enjoying it.  It goes alot slower than digital scrapping but playing with paper and glue has been fun. 

Thanks for looking.

Love the ribons.

Your quilt is wonderful. I can understand about the B&W fabric as it seems to move even in the photo

Love the BOM quilt!

I like how the BOM quilt is off centered so the squares don't all come off the center. Very cool!
