Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!
(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)
I have two sets of BOMs to show-and-tell this week, but first let me say that the silicone appliqué sheet is one of those quilting tools that is definitely worth purchasing. I find it indispensable when doing art quilt work.
While working on the May half of this section of the quilt, I had a “you’re kidding me!” moment when I pulled out the background piece – see that nice chunk cut out of the side? ::rolling eyes:: No fears – it’s an art quilt. . . easily fixed. :D
Voila! Nobody will ever know it wasn't supposed to be that way! The patch comes just to the bottom of the bike's back wheel. Couldn't be more perfect!
Here’s that section with the June side added.
I also have a couple more Patriots in Petticoats tales for you.
The June blocks and ladies:
June Gal #1 was Elizabeth Freeman. Born a slave, “Mumbet” won a legal suit against her owner in 1781 when her attorney successfully argued that the new Massachusetts constitution rendered slavery inherently illegal. She was dedicated woman who helped end slavery in Massachusetts.
June Gal #2 was Polly Cooper, who was an Oneida woman who cooked and kept house for George Washington throughout the Revolutionary War. She performed these services as what she felt to be her patriotic duty.
That's all the BOM work I got finished this week. Now it's your turn! Show us the monthly project(s) you're working on lately, and check out what the others are doing!
