What a clever idea, Sinta! So I launched my own "Summer BOM Rehab," and I'm going to make one BOM block each day until September 22, the first day of Autumn.
My first BOM project is "Amish With a Twist." I started it as a Block Party at Ruth's Stitchery. Like most of my blocks of the month, I started out going great guns, then it languished. I had four blocks completed when I launched my Summer BOM Project. Now I have six blocks complete, and the sashing/border blocks up to date:
Left to right, top row: Rail Fence, Four Patch, Nine Patch with sashing. Middle row: Half-square Triangles Pinwheel, Half-Square Triangles Star, Half-Square Triangles Hourglass. Bottom row: Stitch-and-Flip Snowball, Square in a Square (border).
After I complete each day's BOM block, I can work on my June UFO. I have 9 of 20 blocks finished, and thanks to Bonnie Hunter's bonus triangles idea, I have many of the border HSTs ready.
It looks like most of my blocks are pink and blue, but that's just because those are the ones I made first. The sashing will be sunshine-y yellow.
The smoke from our Colorado wildfires is blowing away from Colorado Springs, so I can leave the house more often now. Nice for me, but bad for getting my UFOs finished!
Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
Remember, you can join the 13 in 2013 challenge at any time. If you finish a UFO this month, send me a photo in an email before Sunday, June 30, and I'll include it in the June UFO parade!
