September Star Crazy BOM

I finally got my September blocks completed after working on them for about a week. It’s hard to sit for long periods of time at the sewing machine when you are 8 months pregnant! I’m really liking how the colors are turning out in the different blocks, I can’t wait to see what it looks like all put together!

I have some other projects that have been finished, I’ll post about them very soon!!!

September Blocks

August Blocks

Well, it took me a few days to get them all cut out, pieced and ironed, but I did finish putting my blocks together! They seem to be easier to put together, but I really want to start putting the top together! We have to have enough pieces by now to start putting it together! *sigh* Oh well. I know I’ll be able to finish September’s blocks, but I don’t know if I’ll be on time with the rest of the year. The baby is due in October and I just might not be able to get to them. We’ll see what I can manage!

July Blocks

Took me a couple of days in between other projects, but I got all the July blocks completed. I’m really liking the way the colors are playing together. I can’t wait to start putting all the blocks together! From the looks of it, we don’t do that until December though!

June blocks & a Finish

I finished the June blocks pretty quickly. I cut everything out before vacation, and even got the Irish Chain block completed. All I needed to do today was put the 2 stars together. I can’t wait to start putting the top together, this is going to look so cool when it’s done!

I was also able to quilt and bind the 2009 Quilt Show BOM. However, since I never finished it (only completed month 1) I decided to make it into a table topper. Then I changed my mind and put a sleeve on it so I can hang it in my half bath that has a red, white and blue theme. It was something easy to work on during the flight to Florida. Another finish for the year!!!

May Blocks

I completed my May blocks fairly early this month, there’s still more than a week left in the month! 🙂 Hard to believe I’ve been keeping up with this, I didn’t really get too far on last years BOM!

May Blocks

April Blocks

Well I got this month’s blocks completed on time. I’m liking the colors and how they work together, I can’t wait to start putting it together into a quilt! This is going to be quite large when it’s complete! Hoping to work on some Dear Jane blocks in the next week or so.

April Blocks

March Blocks

I haven’t been doing a lot of sewing the in last month, haven’t been feeling all that well. The baby hasn’t been treating momma very well 🙂 I know it’s now April, but I finally got the blocks completed now that I’m starting to feel better during the day. Once I get some ink for my printer I can work on the April blocks – hopefully I’ll be feeling well enough to get them done in the correct month!

Finish #2!

I finished another one of my table runners! It’s the patriotic one that was charm squares my husband got me on one of his trips. I miss his trips, I don’t get fabric gifts anymore 🙂 But at least now I have 2 items finished from my PhD list.

Well, I’ve been an idiot for the last year or so when it comes to my quilting frame. I had bought a Mini-Pinni frame and bought the stitch regulator that works for my sewing machine. I was having lots of problems getting it to work properly and I just gave up working on it since I was so frustrated. Now that I have so many tops finished I’d like to get quilted, I decided to try again. Again, it wasn’t working right and I got frustrated. But I started looking at the manual for the stitch regulator. Everything looked setup right, but when I asked the hubby if he remembered changing the jumpers for my machine, he couldn’t remember. Sure enough that was the problem! Once he fixed the jumpers it started working right! The tension is looking good and I’ve been practicing on some muslin. Yesterday we went and bought a laser pen at Staples so I can try doing pantographs from the back of the machine. If my test works out well, I’ll start quilting one of my tops that needs done!

Since my machine is upstairs on the frame, I can’t work on the Quilt Show BOM yet. I printed out the instructions today, I have to pull the fabrics that I’m going to use with it.

It’s been snowing a lot lately, so much that we now have 20 inches on our deck! Some of that is from drifting, but not all of it! Please Spring, come soon!!!!!!

February BOM

I finally got all 4 blocks finished for the Quilt Show BOM. I really like the Irish Chain blocks, they look really cool with the scrappy colors. I’m not happy with the way the stars went together, but I think that’s because I screwed up one of them and had to rip out 4 seams to fix the issue! This is farther than I got with last years BOM, I’m hoping I’ll have the fortitude to finish this year, I think I will though! Now to wait until next month for the next set of blocks!
