Catching Up!

I am a bad blogger! I can't believe it has been so long since my last update. I don't think you will be seeing quite so many BOM's in the future from me. I am having a hard time finding the time to get them all done. I decided that after this month I am putting several of them away until I can finish a few of them.

Here is one that I will not be putting away. (Be Attitudes) I still have a button to sew on her hand and a face to embroider. I thought I better do all of that AFTER it is all put together and quilted. Here is another one I hope to continue with. "Applique Affair"

This is the BOM I am doing with the girls at Leah's Quilt Gallery. I will continue to make these blocks so that they are FREE. I have no idea what I am going to do with all 12 when they are completed. I didn't like the finishing kit so I didn't buy it. I may just throw some coodinating sashing, a border and call it a day.
This is "lilibette's Garden" block for June. I still haven't received July's in the mail yet. Hmmmm, wonder what is up with that? This is one that I may put on the back burner. DOH! I don't want to! This is going to be a beauty when it is done. It may not look like it from this block, trust me, it is going to rock.
Here is Karene's favorite. "Midnight Garden"
Here is the block from hell. It had 236 pieces. This will get put away for sure! It just makes me CRAZY. Maybe I will do one every other month. UGH!!!! It is called "A New Beginning"

This is the "Out Of Darkness" BOM for June. It had 225 pieces and is the twin to "A New Beginning. QUILTS FROM HELL!!!!
Here is the July block. Did I say it was 236 pieces?

This is June's "Vintage Valentine" I do want to continue working on this one.
Here are some "Stars In The Garden" BOM's. I really want to put this one away but I am almost done. I have 2 more blocks to make and then the fun part begins, I get to make the applique medalion.

Here are my "Wildflower Sampler" blocks for June. I only have 2 more of these blocks before the center medallion gets to be applique'd. DOH!! I did not plan well.

That's it for now. I have a super secret project that I am working on too. I will probably reveal that in 2011 when it is done. HA HA!!
I am also re-thinking my Dear Jane. There are 2 blocks I am going to re-do because the shortcut I took just bugs me. I am going to try to catch up and make my blocks with a group on the internet. They started in March and have made alot of the blocks I have made and alot I haven't. I should catch up with them in 2010. LOL!!
I made a vow to myself. No sewing unless workout has been done. I started the year wanting to lose the 12 pounds I found when I started quilting. Those 12 grew to be 17 a few weeks ago. I am now at 14 to go. If only sewing burned as many calories as running an hour on a treadmill.

Wow !!! Great eye candy !!! Seems like forever since I have seen some of your blocks....I'm really liking the Vintage Valentine in addition to the Midnight Garden. Can I have that pattern too...ha,ha,ha!!! I am SEW jealous. I love all of these, except the 236 piece ones would absolutely make me nuts just cutting that many things, cos I HATE CUTTING !!!

Love ya

Joy said...

Okay, sensory overload from exposure to quilt porn! I am LOVING your progress.... The Be-Attitudes is as usual, sew cute! I love the Vintage Valentine too, you are doing such a beautiful job!

The Applique Affair is another favorite of mine.... sigh! And I like the Wildflower Sampler....A LOT! The quilts from hell? Absolute masterpieces, but I would have no hair left after ONE of those, much less two. My hat is off to you, my friend! They are going to be stunning, but they are as one of my doctors puts it, "beyond the scope of my practice." I will watch in awe but I don't think I will try that one.

Okay, what's with the secret project? Come on, you can tell ME!! What is it???? tell me!! pleaseohpleaseohplease!! teehee!

Sigh. Beautiful, beautiful work Yvette!
