Hale Country Quilters BOM update

I am slowly making progress on this block of the month. Here is block seven, eight and nine.

Janice did a great job with the directions on this one! Thank you, Janice! I changed the color placement from the original pattern to make the red pop out a little more.

I changed the middle reds on this block so that they looked like hearts. The original block only had one red.

This block had a lot of little tiny trimming to make it fit perfectly. Once it was trimmed, it was easy to assemble. There is a lot of swirl going on there!

Are you working on any “installment” projects? Please share! I love hearing from you!

BOM Hale Country Quilters Update #2

Recently, I have been trying my best to catch up with the blocks of the month from Hale Country Quilters. Slowly, but surely, I am getting there! Whew!

I am loving the teal, purple and red combination in each block.

Block 4
Block 5
Block 6

I am going to take a little break before I start the next block. Block 7 has a bunch of small pieces…and I changed the color placement just a little bit…so I need to have my head in the game!

What project are you catching up on this weekend?

To help you relax, I am sharing a sunrise picture over Lake Huron from our recent trip to Mackinaw City, Michigan.

Enjoy your weekend!

BOM Hale Country Quilters Update

I am making slow, but steady progress on my BOM for the Hale Country Quilters group.

I would have more of the blocks completed if I hadn’t had an epiphany. Darn those epiphanies!

I decided to make a center big block from a Pat Sloan sew along. I like this big star block.

Then I saw a block on Pinterest. It was screaming at me to be 16” corner blocks.

Here are the first three BOM installments.

Are you participating in any BOM’s this year? They are a great way to build skills…and if you don’t love the top when you finish it, it can become a gift or charitable donation. Someone will love it for you! 💕♥️💕
