WIP - Gandalf

I caved!!!




Oh, no! I tried so hard. I lasted 2 weeks, but once Barbara posted hers on BOMs Away, the end of resolve began. I just can't fight it anymore.  ;D  For once, I'm going to do a BOM with everyone else instead of two years later.





The Tolkien nerd in me just couldn't resist. This is a free BOM over at Fandom Stitches.


Also got 2 Baby Janes finished. They're not this dark - can't get the fabrics shot accurately.






Celebrate Christmas Quilt-Along and Super Deals for Quilters

And. . .   I'm working up my block design for The Celebrate Christmas Quilt-along.  Have you seen the program yet? Fun stuff over there! I'm up on November 1st, so you won't get anymore peeks until then. :D






Guess I had to take a break from the intensity of "Listen," but the goal is to get the green-blue arcs pieced for next Wednesday.

I'm so excited to see your Hobbit blocks! I have never tried paper piecing but I would like to try this if I get the chance :)

Don't chastise yourself. Now you are just like the rest of us. Too many projects on the go and still only 24 hours in the day.

Good luck with your bom. It's looking good!

You made me laugh...I printed up the Gandalf block...it's so different. It is contagious to see what others are doing...but so far that is a good thing. Can't wait to see yours.

Wow, Gandalf! I'm contemplating joining this- only one block a month, right? Seems like I could do it... Anyway, I figured out how to link my post (second thumbnail, of course!). Keep up the good work.

Hi Lyn, just joined There and back again. I'm really bad at foundation piecing hope there's enough fabric out there to cover my mistakes! Look forward to stitching along with you. Chrisb.
