Welcome to the Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!
We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.
This week's link-up is at the bottom of the post.
Hi! Today I worked on my Star Crazy BOM. I got the Month 3 blocks sewn,
along with the extra HSTs for the border work later on.
I also did all the HSTs for Month 4, so maybe I'll get 2 months of blocks finished in August.
Then I put together the first of my fireworks blocks for the DOD Americana BOM. Yes . . . I did, indeed, let myself get sucked into another BOM. But we've been an active duty Air Force family for 26 years, and I haven't yet made an Americana quilt other than the Quilts of Valor that I've sent away, so don't you think it was appropriate that I cave in to this one? ;D
By the way, this just barely started, so you can get in on it also, and she's also running a nice spring-time BOM as well. This is one of those set-ups where you get the emerging patterns for free each month if you show that you made the block in the month the pattern came out. Later on, you can buy the patterns.
And. . . just for giggles: Meet our new household friend. He seems to be named "Wally" now.
How can you not smile at that? (Yes, the mouth was Sharpied onto the label.) Penney's was having a most excellent sale yesterday, and our old one smokes when you use it.
So, did you get any work done on your BOMs? Go ahead and share so we can keep each other motivated to keep them from stalling out. :D
