Quilt ADD in therapy

Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love any and every style that makes me smile. Traditional? Awesome, especially with historic or family story connections. Modern? Fun! Free! Cheery! Paper piecing? How cool can you get?

BOMs Away - A new one. :)



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.


Since I finished "Hello, Moon!" last month, I got to pull out a new BOM today to fill in the 3rd-Sunday slot. This one is "Heart & Home," which I apparently received through part of 2010. (Not sure why this photo is posting overly-pink.)



Since I still don't have a machine to piece with, I opened all the sets, washed and dried the fabrics, and ironed them all. . .


 

This one included a sheet of Spoonflower-type specialty pieces for the house blocks. Love the cats and the "Cross My Heart Quilt Shop" sign!


 
 
I got all the pieces cut out for the first two sets, as well as the rest of the pieces from those given fabrics for the other sets. So, there's not many fabrics left to cut for the last three sets.  This BOM only has 5 block sets, and then the finishing kit makes up the 6th set. Looking forward to a short-term BOM!


 
 
Oh, and during the week's bits of TV time, I got the stems for two of the yellow "Ruffled Roses" cornerstones stitched down and back-basted scraps on for the next round of elements:

Hope you've had time to make a little progress on your BOM!

  1. What a plan! Why didn't I think of that? I'll have to sit down and see if I can add another BOM - LOL. It's going to be a beauty.

  2. Oooohhh - a new project! I love those moments. I can't wait to be done with one of my current BOMs so I can add a new project to replace one of the ones I've got going! :)

  7. You're managing very well to keep up with your sewing, in spite of having no machine. I'm terribly impressed with how you continue to plug away on that stack of projects in your closet. It must be starting to look a little more bare... yes?
