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.
Hey there. It's a time of big changes for the family.
We moved Heather into her apartment up in Denver. . .
. . . and she is matriculated into medical school now. Long journey to get this far, long journey more.
It's a fun campus.

I loved this wall art - there was something so captivating about the different shoeprints, interspersed with roller blades, ice skates, bike treads, a soccer ball print, children's prints. It was all done by the class of 2006. I thought it was brilliant.
And even bigger news, she's now engaged to this young man! They're being super nice to us, though, and giving us two years to recover from this spring's wedding.
And we had fun with Marissa's senior portraits shoot. School starts back up for her this Wednesday. Can't believe the baby of the family is at this point!
So - around all this, I did get some BOM work done this week. I sewed up row 2 of the Americana QAL:
I was stumped for the longest time trying to find a fabric to use for the background on this one. But then I caught sight of the tub in the back corner where I've kept a bunch of Scott's older uniforms, so I harvested one of the retired BDUs shirts.
The value was too dark for the hearts fabrics, so I just edged those with a beige plaid fat quarter I had. I also appliqued them onto a single-piece background instead of piecing the background around the hearts since that stuff is like working with duck cloth canvas. I really love how it turned out!
I also pulled Kelly's quilt back out and finished the free-motion work on the Oct-Nov-Dec row that I was working on when we dropped everything to drive to Nebraska. Getting really close to the finish on this one!
Hope you were able to find time for some BOM work.
