BOMs Away - Yeah! Getting Ruffled Roses into the Active Mix

Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!

We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.
This week's link-up is at the bottom of this post.


Well, it sure is nice to have weekly BOM hosting obligations to protect the opportunity for variety in my sewing. I have been exercising tremendous will-power the past few months in sticking so long to the projects that I've been finishing up lately. It's really rather remarkable. And many days I feel like I'm truly going to vomit if I have to look at those same projects one more moment. So the half-day per week of BOM work is a welcome reprieve. 

Last week I did finish cutting out all the Month 2 blocks for Kelly's project. For the two quilts, there are 18 of these stars to put together. Didn't get that far yet.



This week I finished up and set-in the center for my Ruffled Roses quilt! This is the 2011 BOM from The Quilt Show. 


One day it will grow up to look like this:




I started this applique center in October of 2011, but it was always intended as the lowest-priority fall-back in my portable stitching bag. As of now, that quilt is officially on my active BOM work list.  :)   


Did you see that fun spray of fat quarters above my block?  Friday afternoon I got the funnest box - a giveaway from Snoodles at Lily Pad Quilting, provided by her sponsor, fabric designer Jacquelynne Steves of The Noble Wife. 



I think I will leave it there by my cutting pad to percolate some ideas. It's perfect fabric for making something to go in our new home's kitchen!

 What have you guys done on BOMs or interval projects lately? 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.
