BOMs Away - Quilts of Valor March

No presentations this month, but after February - that’s okay! I reached out to a couple guilds and set up some tentative meeting dates, printed some new postcards with the Friendship Chain blocks to drop off at my local quilt shops, and did a bit of piecing.

I finished a top, but totally forgot to take pictures of it! I also pieced these border blocks for a panel. It’ll get a red border first to bring it to the proper size for this border. And then I need to decide what to do in the corners - a plain half square triangle, or a simplified birds in the air block?

Friendship Chain by Katie Mae Quilts

I worked on Friendship Chain using a layer cake, and while I think it’s quite nice, it’s a little too complicated for a pattern. There’s a bit too much “if your layer cake doesn’t have 21 neutral squares, you need X yards to replace every four missing squares...” I’ll still finish this one as an example and eventually a QOV donation.

And finally - or firstly, I suppose! I made three more blocks for my almost-local shop’s monthly sampler. We did indeed get a $15 coupon in February, so I dove into the RWB stash and came up with these…uh…random bits. Whatever - there’s going to be nine months of 6” blocks, they’ll all come together in the end, right?

My goals for the next month are to get two tops finished, quilted, and donated! And keep on working on growing the area.

And 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!
