BOMs Away - Ruffled Roses, Kelly's Strolling the Block, Affairs of the Heart



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.
 
OK, I am officially losing my mind!  I could've sworn I posted BOMs Away on Sunday evening. I can't believe I forgot that I hadn't, especially since I actually had a lot to share this time! First, second-Sundays are slated for Ruffled Roses work, so I got the baskets and swag blocks for Month 8 sewn:
 
 
 
Second, this week I was sick-to-death of Ruffled Roses cornerstones for hand-stitch moments, so I made up for the last two first-Sunday skip-outs on Kelly's Strolling the Block. July's block got fireworks in the sky (not sure what I think of my first bullion-knots for those swirly bursts, but the red burst shows up much better in reality and is really super). For those 3, I mixed a single strand of metallic with 3-strands of DMC floss and the effect is pretty cool. Had a hamburger button and a nifty blue star button to add in, and the dog got facial features.
 
 
 
I also sewed a bunch of buttons on the August block. Love the sand dollar for the eaves and the super-shiny brass button for the light bulb.  :)
 
 
 
And then these Affairs of the Heart blocks need sharing, although I actually finished them last month on the trip to St. Louis for Heather's graduation:

I hope you got to work on your BOMs this week.  :D

Kelly's Strolling is so much fun - I love seeing all your embellishments!
I thought I was off-the-hook for posting this week, but made a quick post to share my Kitschy progress when I saw your linkup:-) Thank you for keeping me on track!

All are gorgeous. So glad you came back and let us in on these accomplishments. What's Heather going to do now?

Love your Affairs of the heart blocks. Funnily enough, I just started quilting my friend's quilt yesterday. It is such a beautiful quilt and nice to see some other blocks.

I love the colors in the baskets and swags, then I got to the Affairs of the Heart, that black really makes those colors pop, beautiful!

It's amazing to me how much you manage to get done, even with all you have going on. Sure like the colors in the Ruffled Roses, and I've always liked Affairs of the Heart... but working on black. No thanks. Congratulations on achieving your yellow belt! Great pictures of that. And good for all of you for volunteering on Memorial Weekend. Looks like it was a good day out. I hope life is treating you well.

Those are sweet, sweet basket blocks. Basket blocks of just about any design are high on my list of likes for quilts.

Very pretty blocks you have been working on. Love those little baskets.
