BOMs Away - Fancy Forest Flimsy!!



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.


Oh, gosh, you guys! My head is so crammed right now with wedding organization and the fitting/sewing of 14 outfits that I can't remember anymore what I have and haven't taken care of in my personal realm. Sorry this is so late!

I even finished my Fancy Forest quilt top the morning I put these posts up!!


Isn't it wonderful, particularly under the pines we are fortunate to live under? It's no mystery why this quilt called to me.

Here's a wee bit of the real sewing that's going on here:


Tudor wrists on the three ladies-in-waiting gowns I need to do up. There is the bridal gown, of course, two moms, two dad, a groom, 4 squires, and a flower girl - maybe a second if there's time to do that one up as well. Luckily, one of the bridesmaids is a costume major who's doing her own, and she'll be traveling here from California a full week before the wedding (mid-December) to help with hems, adjustments, and last minute decor. Bless her~!!  :D 

An hour or two of quilting time on BOM day is a wonderful break for complete ME time to do something that is my normal sphere of creation and doesn't carry the mental intensity of figuring out all the pattern adjustments for various bodies. But I am enjoying the clothing saga, and the items are coming out so pretty.

Have you done any BOM work this past week or so?
