BOMs Away! - Eternal Bloom #7(A)

Well, I finally buckled down and worked on Eternal Bloom this weekend. But, only worked...

...and worked...and worked... For what seemed like forever, and I still only managed to get the bluebells done.

They are the outer ring of a complex leaf center, and I just gave up on getting that done, too. To be fair, there's 134 pieces in the bluebells alone, and another 116 in the center. There's only so much I can do in a weekend! 

Next month, I'll do the center and get it together. I don't have a deadline for the project, so there's no point in staying up all Sunday night just to finish one block. Heck, when I finish the main blocks and I have to work on the center of the quilt - that's just going to take a few months right there!

So did anyone else work on their BOM? Or a project broken into {slightly} more manageable monthly pieces? Or a BOM broken into {slightly} more manageable pieces? Link up here or at What a Hoot!
