That is the name of the BOM that I will be taking part in for the next 18 months or however long it takes to make it! My fabric arrived. I know I wasn’t going to be buying fabric this year but this is a special quilt and I really (really!) didn’t have what I needed it arrived today so fast! Japanese taupes. I will be using Moda Bella Snow for the background and throwing in some pieces here and there from the stash and probably getting more fat quarters here and there also. (almost all of these were on sale so I pretty much stayed in my goal of sale shopping only) (kind of sounds like an excuse doesn’t it LOL )
Some from the stash that might go in the mix – not sure on all of these – they are maybe’s as I get to more of the quilt.
this part is Part 1 and it is just cut out not sewn together yet – I need to cut out the rest of the compass first and then get going on it so I can keep up with it – part 2 comes out July 15th. I decided to change the center circle – just one color not two as in the photo. With the blue felt that this is on you can’t see how well the blue goes with the brown – but it does!
Who would think that on July 1st in Arkansas it would be cool enough to sit around the firepit in the evening and actually be comfortable! it was a blissful 76 degrees at 8 PM we had the fire going for about an hour before coming in last night. Cool front – down to 60 last night. Really sometimes in the summertime even at 8 at night it isn’t comfortable to sit outside because of the humidity but it is so dry out the last couple days – Bliss!
Yesterday I got more of the squares and half squares ready for Patchwork of the Crosses for the straight edge border, I had run out and needed to get busy cutting more – 1 1/2 sides done – need to get going on it and get this one done!
Quilting is progressing on the frames as well!
