Catching Up on Pile o' Fabrics BOM 2014.
My For The Love of Sewing BOMs are almost up to date, in the piecing department at least. I still haven't gotten any of them quilted. First, because I didn't have the batting and now because I'm struggling with the free motion quilting. I'm beginning to think mine will be more lines and less free motion.
Block #1 Ruler
This one went well, just straight piecing.
Block #2 Spools
A couple of off kilter pieces, but hopefully once I quilt it they won't be glaringly obvious.
Block #3 Stitches
This one was a little less fun, especially the asterix. The bulk in the middle doesn't lay nicely. My cross stitches aren't the same size either, I have to work on slowing down a bit ;) I also had a bit of an incident with the iron. I left it laying plate down... oops. A lovely scorched teflon plate to deal with now. Just let your eyes slide on past any discolored bits.
Block #4 Chevron Star and Churn Dash
These went together nicely. I realized while doing the Stitch block that I was quickly eating up the material I brought with me from Canada, so made a trip to the LQS (Rose Crafts). I'll definitely be returning there.
April's block is going slowly. Partly because I don't have any freezer paper, who would have guessed it would be hard to find in England??? I've ordered some online and it should be here in a couple of days. I love Amazon :)
