Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love any and every style that makes me smile. Traditional? Awesome, especially with historic or family story connections. Modern? Fun! Free! Cheery! Paper piecing? How cool can you get?

BOMs Away - 6 Jan - Ruffled Roses, Affairs of the Heart

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 this post.


Sorry this is going up late. I started getting a migraine while I was working, so I had to take a nap for while.
 
So here's what I managed to finish on my Ruffled Roses BOM: I got all the 4-patches sewn for the next round and one side fully assembled. The others will have to wait until next month.
 
 
 
 
This month's set of instructions also has you work up 4 of the 28 swag sections that will be needed on the last round. Those slats are only 3/4" finished width. I think it'll be stunning when it's all assembled.
 
 
 
 
 
On another note, this applique block is from my Affairs of the Heart project. I did purchase it as a BOM program something like 3 years ago, but I don't have scheduled times that I work on it. It lives in my hand stitching tote that I take to appointments and such.
 
 
 
 
It's block #3 (of 36), and I finished it on the cruise trip. I prepped quite a number to take with me since I had no clue how much alone time I would need. Didn't have anywhere near as much time as the blocks I brought, but two are all appliqued (forgot my milk pen to mark for the bits of embroidery), and 5 others are partly appliqued (I do the back-basting method, so I work with batches to allow for "marinating" time). I really enjoyed sitting on our stateroom's balcony, stitching with just the wide-open ocean for my company.  And a breaching whale one day. And a large school of flying fish another. . .  Cool!!  No pictures of those, unfortunately.

  9. Good progress on your projects, Lyn. I really like those Affairs of the Heart blocks, but on black... no way for me. Glad you could enjoy doing that while on the cruise. I'm sure that the view was pretty, and that the light was excellent. Full steam ahead, girl!

So glad you stopped by! I love the sociability of comments, and I try to answer each one via email. Sometimes, though, the "system" fails to notify the blogger that a comment has been left. Also, I apologize for having to block anonymous users - too much uncivil spam was coming through to leave the comments completely open.
