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.)
I did the last bit of hand work on a couple fellas
(broom and ladder overlap. . .gold watch chain stitching)
and. . . BAM!!
My Classic Nutcrackers (by Sue Garman) is now a quilt top!
Can you believe it?? I'm so excited. :) I love this quilt so much.
This is 55 x 66 inches. The pattern includes pieced blocks intended as an option for more border work, but I want this as a wall quilt, and it would be too large that way.
I am so very excited to reach this stage. I've been working on these guys since January 2019. They sure did make for some nice slow-stitching time in the evenings. It's all done using the back-basting needle-turn applique technique, all stitched by hand.
So! With that much work in this baby, I'll be sharing it at the next TGIFF link-up. :)
- Also -
I never did share the finished top of Marissa's Kaffe Fasset Dinner Plate Dahlia (Judy Niemeyer pattern)! It's been done for about 2-1/2 weeks, waiting for someone to be around to hold it up during good-enough lighting. This is 80 x 80 inches.
She really likes it, and when it's closer to its turn at the longarm, we'll go shopping together to find what she wants for the backing. First, though, I have to quilt Heather's Graduation Dahlia, my Nutcrackers, and Devon's Mandalla Dahlia.
Have you worked on your BOMs lately?
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.
