I love Block of the Month projects. Maybe too much! They seem like such a good idea when you sign up, then suddenly they start piling up, untouched. I'm trying to be better about that and I think I've done good with all my current BOM's! Everything is caught up for January!
The first one is a stash BOM...I'm making it from my own fabrics. This is the February banner from the "Count on It" book:
Next is a quilt called Village Square...this picture actually has months 1 and 2 (and a kitty). The sheep in the second row isn't fused until the next block is attached. I also haven't appliqued the pieces yet, because I'm still undecided on what type of stitch I want to do (they are fused, though). If you happen to have this pattern...read it very carefully! There are numerous mistakes in the cutting directions. :(
Third is the first block from a new BOM at a (sort of - it's over an hour away) LQS. The quilt is called "Friendsheep." My friend, Irene and I are doing it together. Each month, the little sheep has a different holiday/seasonal theme. The applique is wool on a cotton background.
Last, are block 6 and 7 from the Snow Days BOM. Block 6 was actually from December, but with Christmas and a little project called Roll Roll Cotton Boll, I got a little sidetracked!!
Here's block 6:
....and block 7. It's not actually sewn together yet because my sewing machine is in the shop this week for a much needed rest and cleaning! I had done the pieced portion last week, but just finished the embroidery today.
There are four sections of pieced blocks for the Snow Days quilt as well and this is Section 3. I think we are about 1/2 way through this BOM. Yay!!
