BOMs Away - Marine Corps Detour


Welcome to the Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays! 
We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately. 
This week's link-up is at the bottom of the post.

Hi! Did you guys have a good Easter last week? We enjoyed the fantastic weather and some nice family time. I'm sorry I didn't even post for BOMs Away because of that. I'm betting you understand, though.  :)

So, this week I'm back on track for posting, although for the foreseeable future, these days will be detoured into work on the Marine Corps quilt and top secret project in prep for the kids' wedding.

So today I put together a tall stack of these ribbon border pieces.

They're ready now for the Y-seam work putting the other green cross piece between these.

They'll get added to the center after a red floater border. (I've got it pinned to the quilt that's hanging in this room right now.)


So, how about you guys? Did you get some work done on your BOMs?

Finish Along - Quarter 2 Goal Post

2015 FAL at On the Windy Side
It's that time - if you're participating, don't forget to make a Second Quarter "goal" sheet. The 2015 quarterly Finish-Along is hosted by Adrianne over at "On the Windy Side."  

This quarter revolves around Devon and Kyle's Wedding. And this is still my favorite picture of them.  :)  He's at Marine's Basic Training right now, which is 13 grueling weeks long - the longest and hardest by far of all the services. We send him letters every day to help bolster him! Sometimes they're a bit whacky - like yesterday's from me was a transcription of that Facebook test to see what your job in the Harry Potter World would be. (I'm an Auror, btw!)

So here's my Second Quarter planning log for finishes:

Finish These:

1. Top Secret - Have phase 1 & 2 finished. That's all you get. 


2. "Forged: Sempre Fi!" Designed the pattern, half-way cut out right now

3-7. Sea Breeze minis - These flimsies need finishing  **UFOs**


and "The Nerdles"

Maybe even "Tootsie and Rumples" or  "The Doodles"

or even "The Clampetts"

8. "Evening Stroll" - have the fabrics washed, need to down-size the pattern and make it 

9. The Cinderella House quilt - in blocks right now

10. Lori & Aliyah - at the flimsy stage

11. Mermaid Fantasy for Heather, also at flimsy state   **UFO

Forward Lineup for Later Attention:

Whooo's Your Mama

Quiet Rebellion on the Pond   **UFO


BBQ with the Squadron   **UFO

Rainbow Jane
