I started several "Block of the Month" (BOM) projects earlier this year. I thought it would be a great way to work on new projects throughout the year and have something to look forward to each month! So far, it has been great. The first couple of months, I was waiting UN-patiently for the new month to begin so I could get my new pattern for that month's block! Then, a family emergency and several weeks away from the sewing room put me behind schedule...
This weekend became catch-up time and I found myself needing to make several months worth of blocks to get caught up! First, I had to FIND all my fabric which I am using for each block... That was a chore in itself! We have been reorganizing the house - how silly that when you re-organize, at first you can never find anything because it is not where you "normally" put something... But your new normal is in a new spot... UGH!
Anyway, after I finally found my fabric, it was time to pull out the rotary and get to cutting!
Here are just a few of the completed blocks
Well, I am off to prepare for a train ride! You know what that means??? LOTS of time for hand stitching! Gotta get my supplies together and ready for the trip... Is it bad that I will have my quilting stuff ready to go BEFORE I even bother to think about what clothes I need to pack???
Until next time my quilty friends ~ PIECE!
