Blogger's BOM Catch Up

The final Blogger's BOM block has recently been posted.  I am a fair way behind but managed to make these four blocks a few weeks ago.  

This block I actually made about three months ago but hadn't posted here.  It's not my favourite block, I think I should have used fabrics with more light and dark values (instead of all medium).  It will look good once it's surrounded by the rest of the blocks I hope.  It was designed by Quilt Dad.

I really love this block.  It was provided by Amy at Diary of a Quilter.  I think a whole quilt of these would look sensational.

I like the fussy cut tortoise in the centre of this block but think the whole block may be a bit busy?  The instructions for making this one can be found at Cluck Cluck Sew.

I really like this block too, it's from Mrs Schmenkman Quilts.  That means I've made eight blocks and have five to go.  I've got a couple of markets soon, so won't be able to get back to it for a little while but I'm excited that I am over halfway!  I am looking forward to seeing how it will all go together.

I'm very tempted to join Lori Holt's Row Along, another free quilt along at Bee In My Bonnet.  I adore Lori's quilt designs and her fabrics as well (she is a designer for Riley Blake and her fabrics are so lovely).  I should really finish this quilt along before I start another though, shouldn't I?  I love quilt alongs and find them very hard to resist!   There are so many patterns and ideas that I'd love to make, I'm surprised really that I have time to go to work!  I guess I have to pay for the fabric somehow.

  1. Love your blocks, particulary the one from Mrs Schmenkman Quilts, the large floral is very effective. I can see the temptation to join Lori Holts Row Along, I had a peek and it looks great. Whats another WIP between friends!
