Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Do you ever start Block-of-the-Months and then not finish them?
Or maybe you just like doing a lot of them?
This is where you can share what you're doing on a BOM or anything you work on at given intervals.
Show us what you accomplished in the past week or so!
(Linky at the bottom.)
Luckily for me, April has 5 Sundays! I took advantage of that bonus BOM day to catch my Rabbit Hole up to the newest cue:
All the flowers are sewn down. The only way I could pull this into my work load this year was to go with machine applique. I finally found a monofilament thread that my machine will accept (Superior brand), so I'm using that. I'm prepping pieces with turned edges and stitching with a teeny blanket stitch. The bites are about as deep as a thread, and spaced a little shorter than 1/8" apart. I use unprinted newspaper behind it all as a stabilizer, and it comes out beautifully.
Didn't get to the new cue, which has the leaves and the first mini border, but it's time to convert my machine to free-motion work for tomorrow's return to the priority project. I'll use my Free-play Fridays for this project since most months don't give me an extra BOM day. :)
Oh, yeah!! I was going to try sharing this video with y'all. We got a super pretty snowfall in the night and all through yesterday, and a doe-herd hung out for a while in our yard having a great April Fool's Day frolic. There were 3 adolescents romping around like this for a long time, while the matriarch you can see at the center calmly ate from the berry bush. We loved it.
How has your BOM work been going?
Kate over at Katie Mae Quilts has joined me in hosting this meet-up,
and linking up from either end puts you on the party at both sides.
