BOM Updates

This was the June's BOM. We used a "new to me" applique method. You sew two pieces of fabric together with water soluable thread, leave an opening, turn right-side out and soak with your spray starch (which will disolve thread and give a great stiffness), iron/dry and then the two pieces will come apart leaving you with two applique pieces, mirror images, with the seams perfectly tucked under. Thank you, Tanja, for teaching us this one!

Here are two of the tops made from the previous BOMs. I am always amazed at how they come together!

Now, this month is called Stars, Stripes and Circles. It looks to be a bit challenging, a pieced circle that looks like applique. I'll let you know how it goes.
