BOMs Away - QOV Rail Fence #1

Now that I've finished and mailed off my last two Quilts of Valor leader/ender quilt tops, it's time for another long-term leader/ender project!

And it just so happens that I really like Bonnie Hunter's current L/E challenge! Not the checkerboard part, but the rail fence. I'm using 1.5x5.5" strips, and they'll go together in a weave-ish fashion.

Every weekend, I cut a few more strips in whatever colors I'm running low on and toss them into the basket by the machine. I need 192 to reach optimum QOV size, and after the first month of them, I have 34. So it should be a nice 6-month project or so.

And normally I'd report on my L/E on the last Monday of the month, but I did this yesterday, so needless to say, there was not any BOM work on Sunday!

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