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 got a good bit of work finished on three different BOMs since last week!
I cut out all the pieces for my Swan Island quilt. Well, except for the last two fabrics, which aren't available until December. Soooo many little pieces, so I clipped them with labels. I plan on making two swans each month:
Finished several more unit sets for Marissa's Kaffe Fassett Dahlia:
And I finally felt like attacking the king-size extensions that I needed to add to the queen pattern so the quilt would be large enough for our bed:
I had several "waste" sheets from prior Dahlia patterns, so I taped the border units to those and very meticulously extended the sewing lines and the unit edges.
To keep the pieces lying perfectly flat for an unblemished join of papers, I found it worked fantastic to simply lay a ruler across each sheet. I did tape over the entire edge instead of just putting little pieces of tape here and there.
That made for a flat, non-puckered join every time. No iron necessary.
There were 24 border units, and here they're all modified and waiting for the next spurt of mental industry to hit, when I feel like attacking the cutting templates so the working fabric pieces are the right sizes when I do the paper piecing.
Right now: I don't wannu.!!!
Now your turn: How are your BOMs doing 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.
