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 the post.
It's Holiday Tidings week for BOMs at my place.
I sewed the November pieces:
(That's 2000, not 2013 - one of my oldest UFOs here!)
Put them in their rows:
(which are not all crooked like they appear below)
Fused the bow - I think it was Barbara that I picked this technique up from ages ago. Cut out the guts of your fusible stuff before you attach it to the fabric. Accomplishes two things: Save fusing material by tracing smaller pieces inside the larger ones; Get a much nicer drape for your quilt - it won't be all nasty-stiff, especially if you have multiple layers.
And I even blanket-stitched it all:
Although, I was fed up with it long before I finished. My poor machine kept having fits with skipped stitches any time we had to pass near a thick convergence of seams in the patchwork. So I'll clean the thread ends up some other time during a fun after-dinner show.
It brought to mind that jean-a-ma-jig tool thing I've seen advertised in quilting catalogs.
Have any of you tried one? Do they really work, or are they not worth the fuss?
So how about you? Have you done any work on your BOM or other interval work lately?
