In no particular order I have finished the last block for My Tweets...a 2011 block of the month from Erin Russek's blog, One Piece at a Time:
Now I have to make a gazillion leaves and a few more birds and flowers for the appliqued border. Here are just some of the templates, ready to cut out:
Here is the block on the design wall along with some of the border fabric strips and another block done in a different colorway:
I signed up for the Skill Builder BOM but after seeing that one of the blocks is a hexagon block, I am having second thoughts! I mean, I DO have enough projects on my plate as it is. If I don't get to the first blocks by the time the second ones come out, I might scrap that idea. (hehehe, I said scrap...that is a pun! hehehe)
Something else that is eating up some time is my new Featherweight! She needs a lot of cleaning and a few parts but I already am hoping she will be a useful part of the 'family' here. As of now she is not named though.
Last but not least is a shot of the mess on my table. There are bits and pieces of both the My Tweets border as well as the 2013 BOM called Jingle Belle. In fact, just today the first block is up on Erin's web site. It is a free BOM. There is a center medallion called Miss Kringle that you can buy from Erin for $10 to use in the quilt center, but you don't have to do that if you don't want to.
Till next time...Happy Sewing!!!
