BOM’s Galore

bad border choiceLooky, looky, the chickens have a home.  This is the center of the quilt (layout plan shown here).  I had not sewn partial seams in some time but it was quite easy and this top went together very quickly. 
While I was sewing this together I spotted the fabric hanging to the right.  I immediately thought of using it as the second border.  I could see it as “the grass is greener on the other side of the fence”.  However, I don’t like the look so I will be saving that fabric for another day.







ready to loadOver the weekend I finished the backing for this comfort quilt and it will be loaded on the frame today.  I am going to use it to practice some freemotion quilting while viewing the Craftsy quilting class.










March owl & fishThe last thing I got done was prepping these two FatCat BOMs.  I windowed most of the pieces so it kind of looks like paper spaghetti.  I have not figured out the fabrics for either one but that will be part of the fun this week. 

And then, of course, I still have the Teapot BOM to do and the last block for the Carol Doak BOM mystery. 

 And, oh, I have a girls day out with my daughter on Thursday.  We are going shopping to celebrate her new job and buying birthday gifts for both of our husbands.  Gee, this is going to be a busy week.





Buffy & MurphyBut, as you can see, there will be rest times and boy do we have the quilts for that.  Yea!

The chickens are fabulous. You get so much done! And, I'm glad you laid aside the "grass" fabric it doesn't do the chickens justice. Have a fun girls day with your daughter.

Your Funky Chickens turned out so great! Maybe the fabric that flunked being the border could be the top's backing?
Do those kitty cats know how lucky they are? LOL
