Bom Crazy

Wow, has it been a busy month already and it's not even over Yet !
I've been a very busy girl with the MountMellick Di Ford Mystery BOM. Of course I decided to make two versions, one I'm paying for through Threadbear and the other I wanted to make in my own colours. I'm further along with my own version as I wanted to practice on it first when it came to the pieced border before I jump in with the BOM fabric.
I think it's coming along nicely and I'm ready to start the pieced border with the shop version.

I'm also doing Rotherfield greys, which I'm loving right now. It has everything so it keeps you on your toes!

I've managed to start a POTC for the month as well. I love doing these. When you can't think of anything else to sew, or you just can't be bothered to start any appliqué, these blocks can be done from start to finish from the comfort of your armchair!

I've been on Facebook     A L O T     ;0)  

You won't believe how many other quilters are on there!!! I've been having such a good time talking to other quilters and making new friends.  
You can find me on Facebook through the link at the top of the page.
It was through this wonderful medium that I came across some other ladies doing the wonderful BOM by Susan Smith called Stonfields quilt. I totally caved in and bought the BOM pack. You pay in advance and it includes the papers for the centre as well, not the borders. So that's good. It's such a lovely quilt, and all that appliqué and paper piecing! 

And lastly, a new pillow case gave way to a pretty significant clamshell bender !
I made the shells, 1.5 inch wide. I'm going to make a mini quilt for my sewing room wall.
It's totally delicious to look at and really lovely to hand sew. 
I whole heartedly recommend them!

Until next time.
Keep on stitching,
