BOMs Away - Garden Friends


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.)

My BOM day was not very productive this week:


Cut out the sashing and cornering pieces to assemble the center of my "Garden Friends" BOM, marked the little bit of embroidery there is on a few of the blocks, and pieced the lower half of the sunflower borders. When it came time to assemble the last of the border backgrounds and fuse on the flower heads and petals - - - I was finished. (This is not a huge quilt - that's maybe an hour's work, total.) 

But my mind is super-invested in the groove of working on my priority work, which is about halfway quilted now. If I push super hard on it, I just might get it finished by Thursday afternoon for TGIFF hosting. So I wasn't feeling it one bit for BOM work today.

Instead, I wanted brownies. So I dropped all that and made brownies with Heather.  :)

Sometimes you do what you gotta do!

P.S.  I bought a longarm yesterday. After NINE years of saving up, roadshow prices brought everything I wanted just under my cash-on-hand for it. Mid-May delivery. 

Still processing that! But man, is the circle doohickey accessory that I already brought home really tickling my fancy tonight! It's just what I need to make really short work of what I've always wanted to do on my "Quiet Rebellion on the Pond" flimsy. . .
