Finishing Some BOM

I can't believe that almost a year has gone by on some blocks of the month I started in January! It seems like yesterday.


This one is the EQ 2011 BOM. I can't show you the whole thing just yet, but it is all finished. It is a 35" x 41" wallhanging. The blocks are 6" each, and were fast and easy to make.


I am adding the final borders to the Granny's Hankie BOM. I will finish the borders up tomorrow at the Friday Night Sew In. It is going to be such a large quilt, the blocks are 16". The appliqué blocks were lots of fun to make, and I am so pleased with how the whole quilt is turning out.

BOM's are such a fabulous way to make a quilt (I am thinking of designing one for the new year).


Yesterday I made two pillow cases for my sons, as stocking stuffers for Christmas (Shhh!) - I am sure pillow cases are what all young men want!! I attended a demonstration at the Victoria Beach Quilt Show this summer on how to make "Sausage/Tube" pillow cases - it seemed like a wonderful idea that I had to try it. It took me less than an hour to make these two. Here is a great tutorial for them I found on You Tube.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Fantastic BOM's Joanne - I can see I will have to do some more of mine too ... Love the colours for your Grannies Hankys. Great Pillow cases too.

The "Granny's Hankies" quilt has a dramatic look done with the dark background. You are getting close to having the top done and I know you are excited about that.

Your Granny's Hankies is just gorgeous!! I have the patterns saved and hope to get to that one in 2012. Your color scheme is quite stunning. Can't wait to see how you quilt it.

I just discovered the Granny's Hankies BOM this month. Is there any where that you could send me the patterns?
