BOMs Away - Ruffled Roses




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.
 
 
 
Sorry to post later than usual - we decided to run out to watch "Monuments Men," and I fluffed off on blogging stuff!
 
Before that, I got the other three 4-patch borders put together - they were a bit of a bear. I'd wanted to work out the floater borders and get everything attached to the quilt, but by the time I was attaching the turning ends and finishing triangles to each length, I had to unsew seams 4 times in a row. Not a good time to tackle quilting math!   ;D  
 
 
 
 
 
So, I'll put them on next month. I did get all the swag pieces cut out for the rest of the months. Last month, when I did the swag sections for this set, I had to cut little single pieces from each of the 16 colors.
 
 
 
 
 
 I really don't want to do that 8 times over, so I spread the remaining 7 instruction sets around my table and cut all of each color at a time. Double-checked it all and stacked it neatly. When I pull it all out again in March, I'll do the same thing for the basket pieces, and then each month will be so much easier!
 
 
 
 
 By the way - how has your week been? It's been crazy cold here with lots of snow. For the first time, the slope up our cul-de-sac defeated the Mini Mouse, and she had to spend a night tucked in with the Ponderosas down below.
 
 
 
 
 
And I'm thinking we need Alaska windows, or something!  That frost there - when it was *minus 20F* it was on the insides as well as the outsides!

So how about you? Have you done any work on your BOM or other interval work lately?

(They've changed the coding again at InLinkz, so hopefully this'll work today!)

Your photos are gorgeous, but I know it's way too cold. Love your borders and your kitty.

That's a great idea about the cutting! I'll have to try and remember that. :)

I see Colorado Springs made the list (#16) of the 25 coldest cities in US. Brrrr. But that didn't stop you from movie night - or quilting. Stay warm.

I think we are at the beginning of our Spring warming trend and I am certainly ready for it. You know we aren't used to real winter down here and don't want to be. I saw -19 there one day last week (our son lives in CS) and so was grateful for the 30 we were having. :-)

Pretty colors in that quilt project.

I forgot kitty's name, but he is very vocal eh? He looks like a cheerleader , telling you 'good job, you have not lost your mind & the borders will now fit just right!'
Brr, it looks cold at your house!

I love the swags and borders you have made already can't wait to see the finished product.

Did you like Monuments Men?
Your car looks like a toy among those tall trees.

I am in favor of your quilting kitty.......you are doing a fabulous job! Cutting is my least favorite thing to do when it comes to quilting! I would rather be sitting behind the machine! Especially in frigid conditions like you have been having!
