I am such a sucker for sew-alongs and BOM's. I am reluctant to say, but I'd better just come clean.....I've started three more :(
(please don't laugh at me, I know you are)
First I'll show a picture of a block I completed for my Simple Folk quilt...
Every block that I complete for this quilt is my new favourite!
And now to the new stuff....which, now that I think of it, means I will have lots to share on many upcoming Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy! (and, yes Kathy, I know you are chuckling to yourself, you enabler you!)
I began the first block for the Save the Bees quilt...which you can read about HERE.
I began by constructing the flower-head OTB....meaning "off the block" as it's so much easier to handle....
I started to applique the bees wing and realised that I didn't like my fabric choice, so this morning I switched up to the first block of the
new Eleanor Burns mystery, Fun on the Farm, a free BOM.
I couldn't resist this one and I'm thinking it's out of sentiment. Back in the day, Eleanor Burns was one of the pioneers in bringing us a quilting show on TV. This would be before learning our craft was made easier by the internet, classes in quilt shops, etc.
It's funny, back then I regarded Eleanor as perhaps a senior....now I'm thinking she was probably younger than I am now! lol, that thought is a bit shocking to me for some reason!
Here is my first block, almost done...
It's an easy start and you can still join in....it's only one block per month....come on, jump in, the water is warm!
....and my third start this week.....
I've seen this quilt done up at a couple of quilt shows and it always catches my eye. I finally gave in and ordered the BOM which will be mailed out to me on a monthly basis from a shop right here in Ontario, which is nice.
So, I'll say it one more time....no more new starts this year.
I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching. I will browse through the other quilters that are linking up and I will not be led into temptation.
