Fall is in the air!
I have been waiting for this since about mid-summer!
I hope you are enjoying a nice change in the season also.
I got a few things checked off my list over the weekend.
I remembered a Mystery BOM from Quilt Soup that I had signed up for.
I do love Quilt Soup fabrics and patterns.
This block of the month is mostly all applique but
the pieces are large and simple. It's a perfect time to start on this project.
There is another applique project that I am
about to start up and since I am
a total beginner at applique I think that the one project should help be
fine tune a little bit and make the other project,
Evening Blooms by Blackbird Designs,
a little bit easier for me.
Here is my start on my Mystery BOM.
I have been needing to get my project samples ready
for the retreat I host. It will be the weekend of the 19th this year.
The first project is a spider web quilt.
I like the way it turned out. I didn't want it to be very scrappy but
I think if I make one again I would like make one scrappy... but maybe
just use all polka dot fabrics. I seem to need some control on these!
I wanted to see how it would work with just using a jelly roll.
And here is how it turned out.
My other project is a Cathedral Windows pillow.
It is suppose to take a 14" pillow form but I had to squeeze
the form in it.
I am going to make up a second pillow and change the last step a little...
but at least I have this one to start with.
I have to share this with you...
I had been in my local grocery store and they had this as a display piece.
It had "spray" butter in it and was displayed next to the corn in the produce area.
I asked them what they were going to do with it at the end of the season...
one thing lead to another and I got a phone call a couple of weeks latter to
come and pick it up. I think it's really cute. I love the wire frame and the apple basket...
it even has wheels. I might remove the wood sign... I think it's cute.
Not that I needed one more thing for my sewing room...
but as you can see, it is already serving a purpose.
What did you do over the weekend? Were you in BOM Rehab?
