In the spirit of BOM Rehab (inspired by Sinta’s blog Pink Pincushion), I am really getting into my BOM projects again and LOVING IT!
I got Block 5 done for the FQS Designer Mystery BOM (Nov 2013 block). I’m just one block down now.
This may look like a standard pinwheel/star block – but there were a lot of pieces to put together for it. It took awhile!
Bright and colorful!
Here’s a picture of the pattern cover and a bonus block I made from the half square triangle leftovers:
I’m not sure what that block is called, but I just picked a layout that I liked. Probably some kind of bird block.
I had no problem getting my two blocks again and the bonus from one pack (if you don’t count getting a little bit of the background selvage in the quarter inch seam allowance):
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
I had time this weekend to revisit another BOM that I started back in 2011! 2011!!! It is called The Generals’ Wives. I thought I had gotten farther, but I had only done 1 block so far. I’m not sure why – probably because it started right at the holidays and I got distracted. I fell in love with reproduction fabrics for a long time and acquired quite a stash. This BOM was from Quilter’s Quarters, but it was offered from Fat Quarter Shop, which is where I purchased my subscription.
Here’s the first block I did back in October 2011:
And here is block 2 from this weekend (I didn’t quite get the directional fabric worked out on the corner squares):
A picture of the pattern cover for Block 2:
Both blocks together:
I’m finding it hard not to ignore all the housework and parenting needs to work more on my BOM blocks! How about you – getting into your UFO/BOM projects yet this year?
