BOMs Away - 28 July 2013 - Moons, Janes, Swaps

Welcome to the 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.


Got a hodge podge of work done on BOMs this week -


Dear Jane:  WOOHOO~~!!!!   I finished the LAST BLOCKS!!!!



First I finished the embroidery on the signature corner. I finished counting everything on my spreadsheet as it will be in the final assembly to get the total number of pieces (I currently have 5006 sewn together), and I changed "War Time" to "Time of Change" to fit my situation.  The two years I've spent piecing all the squares and triangles have seen great transformations for our family, as the two older kids entered college, we made a cross-country move after 15 years in one home (the longest I've ever lived anywhere) into an entirely different geography and climate, and then the youngest had a custody change which brought her into our home on a primary basis. 



And last, I stitched M-13 together. It really tickled me for this to be the final block I made, as it's called "Lynette's Diamond."  :D


But I'm so antsy to get this all together! So I also put together the 12 sashing rows that I'll need as I assemble my inner blocks:




Hello, Moon: I fused the June cricket and the July camping blocks and got the scribble stitching finished. Still need to embroider all the cute little smileys and details on them.





Block Swap Adventure: Sneak peaks of the two blocks that will start their journey up to Canada tomorrow. 



What did you do on your BOMs this week?  :)

I remember seeing Dear Jane when it first came out years ago. Even bought the DVD to help me make it. And there it still sits. So I really admire you for all of the dedication and effort you have put into this quilt! Amazing! Hopefully, the stitching helped as therapy with all of the challenges. Quilting kept me together on many a day!
