BOMs

This year I’ve committed to finish most, if not all, of my UFOs.  And I’ve also committed to use as much of my stash as possible…although I may have made a purchase or two of new fabric 😊

In an effort to use what I have on hand, I’m allowing myself some new projects.  One is Sherri’s A Quilting Life Block of the Month.  

This is the June block…


Another project is the Fat Quarter Shop 2017 Basket Sew Sampler Quilt.  I subscribe to their Sew Sampler Box and each month we get a new ‘recipe’ for a basket block.

Block #2 came in the May Sew Sampler box.


I’m also participating in a fun swap with Dawn and friends at sewyouquilt2.  This one is using scraps to create slab blocks.  You can read about it here.  The blocks I made for the swap are in the mail so I'll share those once I know the recipients have them.

June has been crazy busy with work activity and then we took the camper out last weekend.  I'll be playing catch-up in the sewing room this week.

Hope everyone's summer is off to a great start!

Good for you Jeanna for "committing to finishing up UFO's".. that would take me five years!! Love your blocks!

Karen said...

I had no idea what slab blocks were. Looks like you will end up with a modern looking quilt using the blocks. Do you have a plan?

I doubt that I will finish all or even most of my UFOs this year, but I am working on one of them now.
Your blocks look great.

Yep we need some R and R time along with the quilting don't we! Glad you were able to squeeze in some sewing time:) I still have lots of UFO's, WIP's but I am happy with what I did accomplish in that department the first half of this year.

I'm wrapping up TWO quilts made completely from my stash! IT DOES feel great!! It's a great time for camping...I've enjoyed catching up on your blog and seeing what you've been up to. V:)

Using your stash while making these new project makes you feel good. Your goal of finishing most, if not all, of your UFO's is definitely an admirable one. I'm slowing shipping away at mine.
