It is madness this thing we call quilting and with 3 BOM's going I have added to my insanity! I got up at 0400...yes that is 4 AM because the BOM's were calling my name. I really had to get control of them because I have so many other projects in process which I want to get to also but I love my BOM's...they are like children evolving and eventually growing up and maybe moving out! Out of the 3 BOM's only one is like looking at a stranger...like I wonder who your father was?! The other two I have totally fallen in love with and already know where I am going to hang one of them.
The thing about BOM's is they are sooooo dang labor intensive. It is not like strip piecing or cutting fabric in mass...it is one block at a time...one little flying goose...one 2 and 7/8 inch square. It takes almost an hour to cut and finish a block!
My 3 BOM's include 30's print from BJ's Quilt Basket. Green Pieces from Sew Many Quilts. And, Henrietta Whiskers from Bunny Hill. I NEED to stay on top of this little group because next weekend I am taking a class out at the Stitchin' Post in Sisters...and I haven't even begun to chose what fabric I want to use in that class. But at least I now am pretty much caught up on my Green Pieces BOM as you can see by the blocks below.
I am really happy with how this project is coming along and have enjoyed every month...wait till you see the medallion block that goes in the center!
