BOMs AWAY Monday #3



Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays! 


(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)

This past week I got three of the BOM projects on my list caught up.  :D


My favorite of all 9 is my Wild Rose Cottage project, a Marti Mitchell Patchwork Party quilt. Something about the cheery colors just makes me happy. And the blocks are intricate and interesting. Besides all that, I had already cut out all the pieces during a movie long ago! Can't remember the name of the first one, but the second is "Mexicali Rose" - apropos for May, no?  :)














The Glacier Star Project got the April portions added on (the spiny feathers at the bottoms). . . 




. . . and then the May portions. (There are eight diamond sections.)




And while I was in the paper foundation groove, I finished the GIGANTIC parts of our guild's opportunity quilt that Sandra sent home with me. That's a 12 oz. glass!




And I got the Selvages project up to date. I have no idea why they named this quilt "Selvages." You don't use any. But you do make two of each 9" block each month.






Oh!  And for your entertainment - I found this really super cool spider in the back yard today!!


It's about 1/2" diameter, and has a shiny hard-looking shell.
(No, I was not going to touch it to find out!!)
I just found out it's called a Spinybacked Orbweaver and does not have a dangerous bite.
Pretty little bright yellow fella. I guess it can stay. (Eat lots of mosquitoes while you're hanging around!!)



And now, it's your turn!  Show us the BOM you're working on lately, and check out what the others are doing.   
(Thanks for the courtesy of mentioning this spot on your own blog.)

Wow, those paper pieced blocks are awesome. I admire the quilters who do paper piecing. My least favorite way to make blocks. lol
