I know...I said no more BOM for a while so that I could finish some of those UFOs which happen to include 3 BOM for which blocks need to be set and the quilts finished....plus another BOW (Grandmother's Choice) which is becoming more and more intimidating (I am currently on Week 3 and looking ahead at the incredibly complex Week 4 while the balance of the world is on 49 or something). I should not start a new BOM until I complete the other 4...right? Right! Nope...not so fast.
I signed up to do the BOM quilts at Studio Stitch...and July was the first month. There are two colorways...signed on board for both! (who can resist their deal...a quilt for $7.50...not me apparently)
This year they have chosen solids in two color sets. The first is white, gray, green and orange and the second is white and three shades of blue. At our first monthly meeting the idea was floated around to substitute one of the fabrics in the color set with a different fabric to create something a little more....individual.
Buy fabric...why yes, please! So for the gray, green and orange one...I wanted a newspaper print. And for the blue one, I chose a mustard colored fabric.
Take a look...
There wasn't anything difficult about these blocks...thankfully. (My original plan for today was to complete these two and do two in the Grandmother's Choice...but I chickened out when I saw the one for Week 4!)
I love how the newsprint looks. The color is a little washed out in the picture. I guess there is such a thing a too much sun...who knew!
Plus the lens on my camera fogged up when I went from inside with air conditioner to outside with very heavy humidity.
I just love how they turned out....love them both!
Today, I also worked on my projects for the Be A Hexie Queen Blog Hop which starts on August 21st and I was pretty happy with my progress. Hopefully, I can finish those in plenty of time for the hop....we can always hope!
This week in the Quilt Room, my list includes more progress on my Hexies and maybe work on Block 3 for the Grandmother's Choice. I also hope to attend a yoga class, book club, have dinner with family and friends.
