I was looking for a BOM for 2014. While I got a bit sick of making stars last year, I liked having a block a month to keep things ticking over. I wanted something that would challenge me this year. I couldn't find any BOMs that I really liked, but I did find a pattern with 16 blocks that I think will keep me busy and challenge me. I plan to complete two blocks per month. We will see how that goes.
So far the project has been lots of hand sewing which in turn means freezer paper templates and ironing.
I have cut into my Mama Said Sew black dots - I have been 'saving' this fabric. And on my way to Hamilton yesterday I called into Grandmother's Garden sale and bought the top fabric - the flowery one. The rest of the fabrics have come (and will continue to come!) from the stash.
I know it's not very smart to have a handsewing project and a handquilting project going on at the same time. But I do enjoy handsewing - it's slow and quiet. And, besides, the handquilting project is still unbasted, lying on the floor!
