For BOM Away Monday, here is Block 10 of Hampton Ridge. Not a favorite but it was easy to put together. These blocks are getting easier and easier (of course, now that I’ve said the next one is going to be hard!) I believe that I’m just getting better at understanding the instructions and my scant 1/4 inch is more accurate as I continue my quilting progress. I’ve never before the last 7 months quilted as regularly as I am now and my accuracy and understanding is approving greatly. I love it! I have two more blocks to go before I’m done for this month and I know I’m not going to get to it. I’m travelling next week and I’m not back until Sunday evening. Then I’ve got to pick up my machine (which should be ready by then) and then it’s February. Life is going to get even busier these next few weeks. My mom is having a small party on February 1 and then the girl has cheer competition the next two weekends. The weekend after that finds me and the hubby in Vegas celebrating his birthday. So I’m going to have to quilt during the week and around these life events. 🙂 I hope I don’t far too far behind my BOMs.
I’m really happy that Block 2 of Moon Glow was much better than Block 1. I paid close attention to the instructions. The square in the middle was appliqued on and I know it isn’t straight or anything but I like it this way. I was watching Carol Doak’s Mastering Foundation Paper Piecing on Craftsy to help me as I foundation pieced the star together and it helped a lot! I’m now caught up with the Moon Glow BOM!
The other BOMs are: Tell it to the stars – which I’m caught up with! A Rainbow Garden – I’m three months behind on this one. I’m working on Block 3 but this is primarily hand work. I’ll be taking this with me as I travel around so I’m hoping I get a lot done before the next kit comes in February. And finally Lucky Stars! I’m letting the 2013 BOM go and I may get back to it when my current BOMs finish off. But I couldn’t help but get into the 2014 BOM when Elizabeth rolled out her special for this year. I think it was $10 for the year? I can’t remember but I got it last November or December. I’m not yet late but with my upcoming schedule I do not know if I’ll be able to get this caught up before the end of February. In the meantime, I still need to pick out fabric anyway. 🙂
For Design Wall Monday, it was getting full with all the BOMs on there so I removed everything and kept only Hampton Ridge up.
Happy quilting everyone!
~Wish I was quilting too.
