BOM Updates

I believe I promised to update you on my BOMs. I didn't realize I was four months behind. Actually, I'm five months behind, but I didn't do one of them. It involved heirloom techniques and was a bit more than I was willing to handle at the time.

The first one here involved making three dimensional flowers. The technique was simple enough, but the time comsumption was way too much.

This one was fun, fast and super easy. It involved making half square triangle blocks, cutting them into strips, rearranging them and putting them back together.

This most recent one is your basic attic windows block, chosen to help us practice our "Y" seams.

Now, this isn't really a BOM, but it was made for a friend at the guild.

Charity Quilts

Just a little update on the charity quilts... I received a total of 10 blocks out of the 20 I'd normally need to make my Sassy Sixteen. And one very sweet lady, Susan from Madison, WI, donated a full Sassy Sixteen top with adorable kitty prints all over it!

Ladies from the guild quilted and bound it. It even had "Union University" quilted into the top border!

Now, as for what to do with those 10 blocks...since I didn't have time to make 10 more and put the top together. I decided to alternate all the donations with this gorgeous purple fabric.

We use our BOM contributions to make other charity quilts. And that reminds me that I'm a bit behind in posting some of those. So, I'll be sure to do that next time.

It's here..."Twisty Cakes"

My newest pattern is now available! "Twisty Cakes" is a fun, easy pattern that is great for those Layer Cake and Dime packs. It is on it's way to the stores now and is currently available at my Etsy store.

Now, this pattern was not the original one I planned on releasing this month. However, the other one is taking a bit longer and then I thought of this one and it seemed so quick and easy that it took top priority. I'm not sure when I'll get back to the other one as I have many other things on my plate, but you all will be the first to know!
