My WIP Wednesday #9

Good morning!  Most of this week's WIPping consisted of catching up my Glacier Star "BOM" work.  It's actually a "Technique of the Month", but I categorize it with my BOMs. Like most of the BOMs on my list, it had fallen 3 months behind due to LIFE. But I'm just about finished with the May portion. 




For those of you who are familiar with this style of paper piecing: that huge cream piece at the end? Yes, it *is* gargantuan for that last remaining portion of paper you see poking out. When I press it over, there will be tons of overage. I did that on purpose - when I was cutting the section templates out of the master strip, these were on the end of the strip. I just left the last bit on to maximize the size of the scrap when I trim the block's outer lines.  :)

Psst - If you're working on any BOMs yourself, check out my new 
BOMs Away Monday linky feature. 
I started this up because Lee's WIPs have been incredibly helpful for me and I hope to harness that effect for BOM workers.

Also got Katie Loves Chris all quilted and it awaits a time when we actually sit down in the evening again to watch a show - just need to bury the tails and sew on a label.  Oh! Tonight's Movie Night with my gal-pal. Finish #15 should happen tonight!  :D

I really **have** to finish appliquéing those owls! This *will* happen this week.

Thank you to Lee at Freshly Pieced for hosting WIP Wednesdays it really keeps me motivated to keep those UFOs going!

Glacier Star looks fun to make. I like paper-piecing (except for the removing the paper part)! You win for having the most quilts awaiting quilting ... I recently finished the last of 13 that had been waiting for long time!

I have never done any BOM projects because I can't stand the idea of not being able to finish what I start much sooner ... but it sounds like fun if done in a group setting!
