BOM Update

I'm all caught up with my Pieceful Nights BOM....woohoo....yippee I'm very excited. Feb, Mar and Apr blocks are all done! I try and work on this block as soon as I get it. If I put them aside then who knows when I'll get to it. These blocks are very tricky, the block in the top left, watch out that's a tuffy, not for a beginner. I'm so glad each block is different, I wouldn't want to do that one again. This pattern offers different suggested layouts I haven't decided if I'm going to do the medallion style pictured on the pattern or on point or sashing or or there's too many to list. I'm thinking of sashing with a small pieced block for the corner stone but what it might be is still a mystery to me.
A close up of one of the blocks. I just love the fabrics going into this quilt. For me it's not the pattern but the fabrics choices in the BOM. Look at that red in the star points...I love it.

I've started working on these blocks here and here, I'll show a picture of my version in a couple of days. But that will have to wait, with the sun finally coming out sewing will be put aside for a few days. Time to do some clean up work in the garden before it starts raining again.

Have a good weekend and Thanks for stopping by, I really love reading and responding to all your comments.

Those colors are fantastic. I have the same problem when I have a variety of choices on how to set a quilt. Can't wait to see your scrappy squares.

your quilting is amazing. I love the BOM squares. The upper left one does look tough. Great job.

Those blocks Wendy are stunning - very beautiful and you right on the fabric - it totally makes or breaks a quilt for me. That's why when I see a quilt and it clicks with me I buy the kit if it's available. That one block looks a little scary there sister, but it looks like you were up to the challenge.

Hugs - Karen

Gypsy Quilter said...

I really love that color combination, especially the gold with the red half moon. I bought it in green, but not gold. Do you remember where you found it?

Rhonda said...

Wow! Those blocks are beautiful. I love the fabrics and I'm like you, glad that each block is different.

Pam said...

They are beautiful blocks and I agree the fabric is fabulous. I love the Lori Smith patterns. Are you getting it mailed to you or do you have to drive down to the quilt shop and pick them up?

Where was the little tea shop that you went to with your daughter - it sounds like a great place to go for a cup of tea?

Have a good weekend.
