BOMs Away - Pieceful Swappettes October

Awww, this is my second to last swap block! We had one person drop out, so there’s no December queen. And since it was December, we decided to give it a break for the holidays. So there’s just this block and November’s, and then it’s all over.

But instead of being melancholy! Let’s be - totally unsure if this will work. The queen asked for bright and bold, with the center white stripe. It looked good when I started, but as a block? I dunno. I think maybe it was the wrong green.

And I don’t know what I managed to do wrong, but I managed to screw up the back seams! We were supposed to spin the seams, which normally I’m a huge fan of doing. But mine ended up not nesting in several places, which led to forcible nesting, which made spinning impossible.

Ugh. I’ve always wanted to make a scrappy trip quilt, but this attempted block does not bode well for a whole quilt of them!

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!
