Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!
(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)
Hi there! Well, I got the second Dragonfly Party BOM all assembled! Pretty exciting.
Just have to put the backs together and they'll be ready to fly off to the longarmers'. (They're wait-listed, so don't hold your breath.)
Didn't have time to take fancier pictures, because the family wanted to head out the door to go hike up the Helen Hunt Falls trail. Lots of families out there today, as it was gorgeous weather.

But back to quilting. ;D
Have you seen this cartoon? It really made me laugh. My poor hubby can understand the sentiment.
And. . . a couple of tips!
#2 - For sewing insanely tiny sashings, like the Dragonfly Party's 1/4" sashes, I found ample pinning to be essential at keeping things lined up. The slightest wobbles show terribly when the sewing lines are so close together. When you're on the second sash seam, pin parallel rather than perpendicular. Does a much better job, and you can use each pin as a tiny Purple Thang, dragging it out and along as you SLOWLY sew the seam. Lots of pins and little speed are the two crucial keys to getting a super skinny sashing or border to come out looking fabulous instead of nightmarish.
Now that the Dragonflies are squared away and Jane is all caught up, this week's BOM work will focus on my barely-started "Affairs of the Heart" project.

Which will one day grow up to look like this:
