Reading my Google Blog Reader and realizing, the next Frosty Flakes will be out TODAY! Yikes, so need to finish the center embroidery on my own block - I had problems with it, but I'll figure it out and post tomorrow.
I spent Sunday evening going through two of my block of months programs I started over 4 years ago. I mentioned how I don't have a lot of me time right now, so I'm working on my BOMs and thought this should includ my previous UFO ones as well. Unfortunately, I remember why I didn't finished them - but time to put those feelings of fear away and get down to work. It's wasting fabric just sitting in pieces in a bag.
First oldest BOM is called Out of the Darkness/A New Beginning - Pieced Baltimore Album pattern by Pam Bono. I started this late 2006!! Ugh, this monster is such a challenge. Each 18" block has at least 250 pieces in it (a few have over 300 pieces). Cutting alone for each block takes 4-5 hours. Though as I look back at the 5 blocks I have finished, I realized I'm a much better piecer now and use different accurate methods, so it shouldn't be as challenging as it was before - though it will still take a lot of time. I have cut out the pieces for block 6 & 7 and started sewing them. My original thought was this owuld be my autumn bed quilt and most likely it will remain that way....granted it won't be ready til next autumn - - maybe :)
Next oldest BOM is called Stars Around the Garden started the summer of 2007. What's funny about this one is that I have already done it. I purchased this monthly kit from a shop in Canada and showed it to my boss and ended up teaching it at Patches. So, I never worked on the kits I got in the mail, just on the shop's sample. Now it's time for me to do my own and it actually excited me! I have ALL the fabric including the border for this one.
I have lots to entertain myself, now just need to get down to work!
