BOMs Away Monday - 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.


Lots of sewing today! I was bad and completely ignored the taxes. But it sure was nice to get some visible progress on Ruffled Roses again!

Sewed 12 border seams to get the 4-patch on-point border floated onto the quilt and finish the month 5 work. So it went from this:



 
to this:




And I did all the month 6 sewing since everything is all cut out now.  Three more swag blocks:
 
 
 
 
 
And 4 of the basket blocks:






My back is unhappy after so much sitting - even with the up-and-down for pressing, but it's nice to have my piecing machine back from the shop and working happily again.  I really thought I'd get a call that it was beyond fixing, but $50.00 is all it took.  I'm a happy woman.  :D


So how about you? Did you get any work done on your BOM type projects lately?

Nope, nada. No work done at all on any of the BOMs. Maybe next week. I do love your quilt though.

Yay for the piecing machine's return! I love Ruffled Roses - the colors are so cheerful!

Heidi said...

I love watching this quilt grow, it is really a beauty.
$50. seems like a steal for any machine service!
Have fun with those taxes!!

Your Ruffled Roses is amazing! I can see how much work has gone into it so far.

Nancy said...

Ruffled Roses is stunning! I love your colors, and all that piecing and work is very impressive. Getting that 4-Patch on Point border to fit is an achievement. I like your swag and basket blocks, too. Glad your machine is still on duty.

Your quilt is gorgeous! That border is impressive in its precision.
