Playing Catch up

This year I decided not to make a large quilt, that needed umpteen hours spent on it, but to make smaller projects. Well, I’m not sure how small they’ll end up, but I signed up for at least 3 online BOM’s and a doll quilt swap with some girls in USA.

One of the BOM’s is Sarah Feilke’s ‘Happy Days’.

I am really enjoying this project, as its sort of modern, which I haven’t done much of. 20160210_152210 1_thumb[1]

You’ll see I have made 2 versions of the same block, as I decided the lighter one, may be too light for me, so it may go on the back of the quilt. My colours are greys/blacks on the background and a mixture of bright colours for the applique.

Three of these20160415_092507_thumb[2]blocks are only basted, and I have 12 more stars to do to catch up.

I now have to do some prepping for my 1857 Sampler Quilt blocks. I have only managed 8 of these blocks so far, and am way behind. I am really enjoying sitting and hand appliqueing these BOM’s in the evenings.

This BOM is so totally different, but alot of fun.


You can find the BOM on Sentimental Stitches
