BOMs Away - Star Crazy & Fiesta Mexico


Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Do you ever start Block-of-the-Months and then not finish them? 
Or maybe you just like doing a lot of them?
This is where you can share what you're doing on a BOM or anything you work on at given intervals. 
Show us what you accomplished in the past week or so!

I had the best personal quilting retreat all this past week up in Estes Park.  :D

Gonna have to do that every year while Scott's getting his CMEs squared away.

Besides all the piecing I finished, I got this hand-applique block stitched up for Fiesta Mexico while sitting on the porch with this view:


And back at home today, I pushed through the piecing for month 9 of Star Crazy - nine of these compound star blocks:


Did you get any BOM quilting done?

Kate over at Katie Mae Quilts has joined me in hosting this meet-up,
and linking up from either end puts you on the party at both sides.

BOMs Away - from Estes Park, Colorado

I have zero BOM work to show this week, so hopefully Kate does  :)

Stealing the thunder from BOM work: 

We all participated at this year's US Open Taekwondo Handmadang in Denver yesterday. I found that I cannot break 2 inches of pine with my left hand (injured my right one two weeks ago, so I had to try that break with my off side when I knew I could break at least 4 inches normally). I did, however, dent the wood impressively. It was funny. Marissa and I did a mother-daughter team for traditional poomsae, and we won our bracket! 


Today Scott and I drove up to Estes Park. He has to attend a conference here all week, and I, of course, had to accompany him up here to have a personal quilting retreat and hike a bunch of gorgeous trails.

BOMs Away - a terrific blast at Fall All Around

Wow, I got a lot of work done on this BOM!

16 of the border leaf blocks. . . 


Two of the central blocks. . .

Mother's Choice

Coronet Surrounded

. . .and tons more prep work for future blocks (twice again of what is shown above). All the HSTs are sewn and cut, and all the stem patches are sewn. I'll enjoy some unusual daytime television viewing while trimming and pressing these patches to put the box away for next time.


And - WOW - Don't you just love the Wonder Woman movie???  :D  Scott and I finally got to see it today, and we both enjoyed it more than we've enjoyed one for a while.


Have you done any BOM work lately?
