BOMs Away - Eternal Bloom Center Block B

Whew - a somewhat easy week this time! You know, if you consider 16 pieces in one 3-3/4” block to be easy…?

It really wasn’t that bad - although since I precut the green, it was actually more difficult to find the piece that was 1-1/4” vs 1-1/8”. Sigh. Such fiddly little bits! But the little red buds are done and we’re moving over to the coral block next.

This is where it will go in the center block. I’m not sewing them together yet, since it will get rather large and unwieldy as the months go on. Much like the entire quilt.

I also made these four blocks. My almost-local-quilt-shop said they were going to post a block on the first of the month, and anyone who finishes it by the 10th gets a $15 off. Except they posted three blocks. And $15 off….? I mean - that’s $180 to every person who does a block (or three?) every month of the year. So I’m not entirely sure how this is supposed to work - but hey, I’ll make three blocks for $15 to see what happens.

Except, as you see, I made four. Because I didn’t read the directions and cut eight of the HST blocks instead of eight of the background, so I ended up with twice as much. So I made the inverse of the block as well.

They’re 6” blocks, which is going to take forever to make a sampler, so we’ll see how it goes. I’m doing RWB because I don’t actually like samplers, so mine will end up as a QOV.

So… Did anyone else work on (or start) a BOM? Or a project broken into {slightly} more manageable monthly pieces? Or a few blocks for someone else’s charity project? Link up here or at What a Hoot!
