BOMs Away - Kelly's "Strolling the Block"

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 a Kelly week, so I pulled out her "Strolling the Block" quilt top and went to work on the embellishments for the next block.

June has a farm house on it, so I put lace curtains in the windows and embroidered a country blue-and-pink wreath on the door.  Had a calico kitty button and a Scotty dog button, so those went on as well.

I found a cow on some fabric - this is my first broderie perse foray. It was kind of tricky, but not too bad with all the back-basting applique I've been doing the past two years.

Too bad I didn't have some chickens on some fabric!  But I think the block turned out nice even without them.  


So, how 'bout it?  Any progress on your BOM(s) lately?   :D

Are you kidding? It looks great even without a chicken. What sense of detail :)

This block is just darling! I love all the wonderful embellishments and broderie perse cow that you added too!

Your attention to detail is admirable. Can't believe that you're managing to continue sewing while working on a thesis. Such determination! Send some my way, please.

The details in this block are just wonderful. I especially love the wreath. Your embroidery is so consistent and neat. Well done! Enjoyed all your cutting photos for future quilts, and your kitty pals.
