I'm trying very hard to keep up with the Designer Mystery BOM. Some months it works and some it doesn't. This month, I got the fabric kit on Thursday and here it is Saturday and I'm already done with it.
We are on block #5, which is surprising to me since it feels like I just started. To realize it's the 5th month already surprises me.
So, our designer this month is Vanessa Christenson from www.VanessaChristenson.com and the pattern is called "Stargazing", which I think is a perfect name. I absolutely love this fabric line and so far all of the patterns are awesome!!!
Before I put the block away, I took the other 4 out and took a picture of all 5. After the next block is done I can start assembling the first 2 rows.....
Earlier this week I finished a quilt that I did with a kit that's been in my stash probably 2 if not 3 years. I took for granted that all the parts would be in the project bag when I opened it but it was missing the 2 borders :( I did call the shop but they wanted me to drive the kit out to them and since I knew they probably didn't have any more of the fabric AND it's an hour away, I just made do, pulled borders from my stash of flannels and moved on with the assembly. It's all done now and off to the quilter. This particular quilt is for a friend's mom who will be 90 in January. I will show a picture when it does come back to me since I did forget to take one before I shipped it off.
After the above quilt was finished I was at a loss for what to do but I have been thinking (almost dreaming) about the "Swoon" pattern I got over the summer and wanting to start it so I pulled one of my Bonnie and Camille bundles down off the shelf, pulled enough fq's to make the blocks and got to cutting. BUT, in true fashion for me, I had to stop the cutting and assemble the first block. I just can't help myself :)NOW, this block looks like it would be a quick one
to do, and it kind of was BUT, looks are deceiving. This block measures 24-1/2 inches square!!!
I don't think I've ever made a single block this big. I'm anxious to get back to making the final 8 blocks so stay tuned, I doubt you'll have to wait too long to see them.
