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?

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.
 
I didn't get as much work done on my Heart & Home BOM as I thought I would. It took a lot longer to trace out all the applique pieces on the fusible stuff, then cut those out and "gut" them.  I got all the brown and black pieces attached to the fabrics and cut out again, ready to be applied.
 
 
 
(I do that both to maximize my fusible supply and to cut way down on the stiffness of the quilt. First, the fusing doesn't stiffen the center of the shape, and second, I can still cut away the background fabric in the middle of each shape.)  Lots and lots of leaves for this quilt! 
 
I got all the brown pieces fused onto the central blocks and the four applique border blocks. But they'll all sit pretty on my design wall until the next third Sunday!

How has your BOM work gone lately?

  1. I think blogger ate my comment! What a pretty design wall! It is often surprising how long it takes to get through the boring bits, and also surprising how much fusible web it takes to do it!

  2. Your design wall is looking good!

  3. That's how I do my applique pieces. Frequently I will have several baggies full of pieces before I have a completed piece. I like the look of your design wall. I wish I had another wall for long term BOMs.

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.
