I finally got around to taking a photo of my September BOM block. I am still excited to be participating in this. My points aren’t great, but hopefully my work will improve with each block. I’m using a set of 12″ squares that I got for Christmas last year.
Awhile ago, I started working on a quilt for myself – I’m calling it My Happy Quilt, partly because I’m finally making a quilt just for me, & partly because I designed it with Happy by Me and My Sister Designs. I am pretty sure I am not alone in this, but whenever I start a quilt for myself, it tends to take lowest priority behind other projects. Here is a sneak peek of its current condition.
This chunk is going to be the center of the quilt. I have to rip some seams and make some corrections though. You can probably tell why from the photo above. I cut the white pieces too small, so there is no room for the seam allowance. I still have the baby blankets that I’m working on & the broomstick lace, which is nearly completed. I should have a Finish Photo of that posted later this week.
Have you been following the Traveling Stash? Jen from The Quilty Home is about to send it on to Mama Spark’s World soon. I’ve enjoyed checking out all the fun people who’ve been swapping stuff out of the stash. Take a peek, and maybe you can win a visit from the Traveling Stash too!
