BOMs AWAY Monday 10 - and a HST tip

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yBA0dP9XZiY/TdlBWrZfbOI/AAAAAAAAAcM/mjC0IDWrqZY/s1600/BOM+Button.jpg

Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays! 
(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)

Well, I suppose it's a good thing I started BOM's AWAY Mondays, because otherwise I'd ignore all my BOMs again this week. I'm just so sick of them still and would rather only work on more UFO finishes.  

However! I got back on schedule with the first 4 July BOMs.

First I did my Swap Adventure block for Sandi in Oklahoma. I loved this one!




Next I did the two BOMs that are already cut out: 

Selvages:



Wild Rose Cottage (my favorite of the pieced BOMs right now)



And last I did the July block in triplicate for my local guild's BOM project. (One block for my 2011 quilt, one for turning in for the monthly drawing, and one for a Quilt of Valor.)

Siggy for July (spun around by Blogger) I think I'll quilt Hancock's sig in it.  :D



And that's all for this week.

But I do have to say that this is my all-time favorite way to make HST's:



(print it out free ahttp://www.quiltingandwhatnot.ca/Half-Square-Triangle.html - just make sure your printer is set for 100% size)

What you see on the back after stitching on the dotted lines:



soooo easy!

Don't need a whole sheet's worth? Just cut off a row and do that many:


Cut apart on the solid lines, fold, peel the paper, press open.  Lots of HST's in a fraction of the time.   :D    (I get great results with plain printer paper - recycled previous printouts, even - using a slighter tighter tension and smaller stitches.)

What interval project have you got going? Weeklies are welcome along with regular projects that you’ve broken into monthly units, and –of course- true BOMs.   Share your eye candy and show off your progress since the last time you linked up! There are some wonderful monthly and weekly projects going on out there. You guys amaze me. :D
