BOMs Away - Pieceful Swappettes August

Guess what? It's MY month in my Instagram Bee! This is way more exciting than I thought - I'm really looking forward to getting mail. You know, other than the outrageous electricity bill after our two weeks of 110º+ heat.

I had leftover pieces from making 8" sawtooth stars, and also a couple failed attempts at using 4" stars in my temperature quilt. (The blocks are perfect, but they look wrong. I'm thinking a square in a square instead. Anyway...) So I requested RWB blocks in any combination of 4", 8", or 12" - to be slightly different from the last Stars Upon Stars quilt.

And so I made the last four 8" blocks from my pieces and added in two 12" blocks just for starters. And now I wait to see what everyone else makes!

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