Ok I have a BOM quilt that is about 8 or 9 years old that is on my UFO, PHD list, and has been moved onto my WIP list now as well. My daughter wants this quilt. It has 12 blocks to it, and when we hung it on the design wall the other day, she said she wanted it bigger than what was on the wall, so I told her we could put the blocks on point, but she would need to decide what color she would want in the other "holes". So I put them on the board today, ( well they all wouldn't fit) with the 3 color choices. I am undecided. What would you use? Black? White? or Red? they will have sashing and corner stones as well, that is why the blocks are so far apart.
I have been playing catch up with the BAP blocks, got 2 sewn together tonight, and 4 others cut out earlier this week. Here is block 11:
I haven't pressed it flat yet, because I got sick of burning my fingers. My irons button to turn off the steam doesn't work for some reason, so I will wait to use up all the water, then press it flat with open seams, because there are a LOT of them that intersect together.
Here is blocks 14, 15, 9 & 10 waiting to be sewn....
When we got home Sunday from Camping and I went to do a little sewing I went and started, and played catch up on the Be Mine quilt along. I sewed all the little "pouches" on Sunday, turned them and pressed them on Tuesday, sewed them together on Wednesday, cut the little patches of color on Thursday and sewed one of them down. Didn't do anymore today, next time I go up to my room I will do a few more of them.
Well since I only got 2 hours sleep last night before I had to get up at the butt crack of dawn at 4 am to go into work on my day off, this tired chicky is going to bed. I have lots of cleaning, yard work, and laundry to do tomorrow, and my sis and the her kids are coming by too. I think she said Pizza is for dinner, that is fine, as long as I don't have to cook too. Wonder how early I can crank up the lawnmower in the morning????
