Happy New Year!

Here's the first block of our 2010 BOM using Drunkard's Path variations. This block finished at 16". I will be using fabric I dyed myself on Christmas day. Joann suggested that I use some leftover hand dyed faric but I didn't have enough so I made some more. I dyed 1/2 yards in a rainbow of 12 colors. I have 4 yards of PFD fabric left for the white background. I was planning on creating pastels but I miscalculated the amount of dye to use. I think this is better as the more vibrant color stands out better against the white. Each block will be a different color and I'll have enough leftover for sashing or borders. The colored portions of each block use 1/4 yard or less.
