BOMs Away! - SWOK Sampler

When we moved to Oklahoma, one of the first things I did was join the local quilt guild. Well, it was by accident - I was looking for information about the Boy Scout troop that met at the church, and found out the quilt guild was there right then! So they pulled me in and wouldn't let me leave till I joined.

The yearly Block of the Month sampler started at the October meeting, and even though I reeeeeeeally don't need another project, I don't want to be that new girl who doesn't participate. They're already slightly suspicious of my modern roots! {I tried to explain modern traditionalism to them.}

So I decided to do the blocks in RWB, and make it one of my Quilts of Valor donations for next year. I'm not a huge fan of samplers, so this will allow me to participate, but keep the quilt moving out the door. 

The first block is this star, using the Tri-Recs ruler. Which, I love any chance to use my Tri-Recs, so yay! Hopefully there will be more Tri-Recs, and more stars.

So did anyone else work on their BOM? Or a project broken into {slightly} more manageable monthly pieces? Or, um, start a new BOM? Link up here or at What a Hoot!
