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.)
Whew~! These feathered starts for "Surfer's Point" are a bit finicky to put together! But the first two are sewn and up on the wall. (And I'm really happy with all the points. I had to redo about 8 of them, but considering there are, what. . .112 of them on each block, that's pretty darn lucky!)
The blocks are huge at 22 inches.
Next time, I'm going to mark the pattern templates with a few key matching points to help keep things lined up straight on the partial seam lines. There aren't any there, and it leaves things susceptible to sliding out of alignment along 8 important seams that are on the bias. Hopefully, next month's blocks will go more smoothly when I find and mark those points.
I also gave my Sue Garman Nutcrackers some attention. I was cleaning up the mess of my stash yardage tubs and found some Christmas fabrics that work marvelously with these guys. So I got a start on the sashing process.
Some of the Nutcrackers have applique pieces that overlap the sashing, so those have been back-basted for evening slow stitching.
I'm excited to see these guys come together!!
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.
