AH…I year has passed and here we are. How did you do? Where is your block of the month quilt? Finished? Back in the closet?
I frantically worked on mine last weekend. I was so eager to get the two quilts finished!! When I found out Kelli was coming and that we’d be able to sew, I got the quilts out. She said she was going to work on her Scrap Vortex quilt. I told her I was working on the BOM.
I was hoping I might be able to quilt her into helping. I didn’t care if she sewed…I was hoping she might work along with me and keep me at the machine. Thursday over naptime I cut out the border fabric. Thursday night I sewed the brown borders on. Friday the red borders went on with some help from Kelli. She would measure and get a quilt ready for me sew then while I sewed that, she’d prep the other quilt and get it ready for me to sew.
Then it came to the triangle border. I have all the triangles sewn and part of them sewn together. I sewed more together while she pinned down what was done.
Then about 6pm, this happened…..
DONE! Both tops are done.
I was tickled. Really tickled. Hubby grabbed a picture of us with the two quilts. The lighting was bad but that’s okay. You can still see they are done and right now, that’s all I care about.
Next up…quilting them. UGH. It’s always one more thing isn’t it. At least they are this far and are getting closer to getting out of my sewing room. Readers were so convinced that once I saw these finished that I would love them. Sadly, I still don’t. They are lovely…but I’m not in love with them.
So it’s your turn now…share with us either by linking up or leaving a comment to let us know how you did with your BOM Challenge.
Happily, for us, this is the end of the challenge. We don’t have any other BOM’s to work on. I don’t anticipate us getting another one either.
I’m so happy these are finished…now, I have to get myself to quilt them….Fingers crossed they don’t sit in the to-do pile too long.
