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.)
So, there I was, completely absorbed with the concept of a mega-UFO year and happy to work on finishing long-term projects without feeling I needed to jump into new distractions. . .
When I sat staring at Heather's graduation quilt from undergrad and realized her med school graduation is THIS MAY. Oh, boy! This was something that needed a master quilt, and I wanted it to be in her school colors like her previous graduation quilts.
And then I saw the latest Judy Niemeyer Technique-of-the-Month quilt in the perfect colorway:
|The Judy Niemeyer "Dinner Plate Dahlia" - 2019 Technique of the Month|
So, the last week of February was spent acquiring the pattern and fabrics, washing, ironing, and organizing all those paper units and cutting the templates and pattern pieces out for books 2-4 (book 1 is the overall guide/instructions). Hours and hours and hours of time already in this project.
Accordingly, my March OMG is to get the cutting finished for the last two books, get all the units paperpieced for books 2 and 3, and do as much of the quilt assembly as possible to that point.
I did get a good start during my BOM time this weekend:
How are things on your end? Did you do any BOM work this week?
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.
