Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Where we share what we're doing on a BOM-type project
so they don't stall out in UFO-land!
(Linky at the bottom.)
What could be more perfect for Veteran's Day weekend than finishing my top for Kevin's Sapphire Stars Mystery?
This is a nice, big quilt at 74 x 94 inches. Before quilting, that puts it slightly larger than the limit for a Quilt of Valor (72 x 90). That would be a little disappointing, as I'd intended this for a QOV all along, except that my Father-in-law, who served in the Vietnam War, never got one, and when we started this mystery I knew I'd be making one for him in the quick future. Problem solved! He won't be one bit worried if this doesn't pull up enough during quilting to make that 90 inch cut!
As he put in an entire Air Force career, the scraps of this fabric are perfect, and I have yardage in my stash still for at least a majority of the backing.
Thanks again, Kevin, for hosting this terrific mystery. It let me make something wonderful straight out of my scrap bins (with just a wee bit of supplementing from stash).
How about your BOM-type projects? Have you done any work on them recently?
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.
