After just about killing myself last month getting caught up on BOMs, I am determined not to get that far behind again! So this weekend, I made all the BOMs for which I already have the fabric.
First, the easiest one. It's the 2013 Patchwork Party block. This year, the blocks are laser-cut and ready to sew when they come in the mail. What a great idea!
This month's block is from Fabric Essentials:
Yes, the edges of the pieces look a little "singed." That's a result of the laser used to cut the fabric, but not to worry, it's all hidden in the seam.
Next up, the other two Patchwork Party blocks. The one on the left is from 2010 and the one on the right is from 2012. Both blocks are the same design, "Waring Square."
Both the 2010 and 2012 Patchwork Parties use Marti Michell's templates. One of the block parties at Ruth's Stitchery next year will also use Marti Michell's templates -- I can't wait to see what it is!
I have only one more block to make for my Amish With a Twist quilt. Here is "Hole in the Barn Door."
I decided I don't want to use black for the background -- too predictable! I saw a customer buy some lovely aubergine Northcott solid fabric at the shop the other day, maybe my background should be purple!
I'm plugging away at my 3D Patchwork Sampler blocks. I really should place my hand in the photo to show how small these blocks are! Each pinwheel finishes at 4"!
It takes the better part of a day to make one month's worth of these tiny blocks, but they are so worth it!
Last but not least, four more Farmer's Wife blocks:
Clockwise, from upper left, Block #95, Temperance Tree; Block #63, Ozark Maple Leaf; Block #53, Jackknife; and Block #24, Country Path. Only four more blocks in this quilt, woo hoo!
Linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.
I have quite a list of "Quilt To-Dos" for November. What's on your list this month?
