BOMs Away ~Flimsy Alert for Thistlepods ~ and Wind in the Whiskers

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.)

Hello! Wow, it's gorgeous here today - hope you've got pretty weather, too.

 Hey, look!  I got Thistlepods all put together the other day!!

And it looks quite happy about it.  Heh!  ;D

~and~ Some of you may remember this UFO BOM project of mine:
Today I worked on my Wind in the Whiskers quilt
(a McKenna Ryan design)

I got all the kittens and daffodils fused onto this 35" block, but my body has jitters today, so I didn't get the 3D pieces for the butterflies edge-stitched and cut out.

If you look carefully, you can see the wing pieces fused onto the back-side layers of fabrics in this baggie. I found it is FAR easier to edge stitch them like this, and then cut them out, than it is to fuse both sides together, cut the wing out, then try to do pretty edge stitching on those small pieces. There will be four 3D butterflies added to the block.

Other than those critters for the kitten line-up, there remains one final block to prep the pieces and fuse them on. Then I can finish assembling the quilt top for a Flimsy finish there, too!


So, what about you? Have you been able to work on a BOM? 
Sure would love to see!

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.
