Quilt ADD in therapy

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 - Heart & Home, and Around the House



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.
 
It was a great morning for sewing - Scott had to work a 9-hour shift, so I spent my heart's content of time with my machine. Got the piecework finished on the last of the main houses, and put together the four cornerstone houses. That leaves the applique additions on the main houses and the 4 appliqued border blocks.
 
 
 
I had those blocks arranged nice and straight, but Navarre had a different idea, so the aesthetic tilts are courtesy of this cheeky boy sticking his tongue out at us.  ;D
 
 
 
 
I also used the window to trace the patterns onto the backs of block 2 and block 3 for Fiesta Mexico. It'll be a very long time before these get pulled out, but at least they're ready to go when I get there.

 
 
 
I'm hoping the clouds that are starting to build hold off long enough for Scott to get home soon and grill some steaks. We've had more rain this spring/early summer than last year. For some reason the peonies don't seem to like that. There are a lot fewer out this year than last year, but those that are showing up are nice and full.
 
 
 The Columbine around the house sure does love the extra water,
 
 
 
 and I don't remember seeing any of these irises at all last year, which have popped out beautifully in some of our shaded areas.
 
 
 
And speaking of popping, the poppies are also thriving this year. I want to try harvesting the seeds for baking.  :)

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.
