BOMs Away - RSC/PBJ October

I made these blocks early Sunday morning, then spent the day working on other things and totally forgot to take their picture! So it’s a bit of a drab shot, as we have a storm rolling in. (Excuses, excuses - I know you come here for less-than-perfect photography!)

This week was my little rainbow blocks - green for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, red-violet for Patterns by Jen. I also made a few of the grey alternate blocks, but those are boring. And now I just need twelve more to make the final row!

If I’m smart, I’ll do six in November and December. IF.

You know, if I don’t spend my Sunday working on other things.

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!

BOMs Away - RSC/PBJ September

Another small bit of rainbow to round out the last row of my Rainbow Challenge!

The RSC is blue - I think dark blue - but I went with a variety because there’s already so much blue in my quilt. I had to lay out the rows I already had finished to check for duplicates!

The PBJ color is red-violet, which…I don’t have a lot of, apparently! I had to slice these two off fat quarters. I thought I had some leftover from Berrylicious Dinos, but I couldn’t find the scraps. And it’s mostly purples and deep pinks, I guess.

So anyway, I went with those two and two red-reds. And I ordered the bit more of background that I need for the alternate blocks, so this will be a finish this year! (Okay, early next year. Let’s not get too excited.)

BOMs Away - RSC/PBJ August

Woohoo! The kids are back in school, and I'm back to regular sewing time! Which...is not really reflected at all in my BOM Sunday.

I made four orange blocks for my Main Street Rainbow, because both the RSC and PBJ challenge colors were orange! Must be something about late summer.

But, since the 4-H fair is next weekend, most of my sewing was longarming the raffle quilt. And working on my own entry - which worked out because it used orange strips. So I didn't have to look far for my scraps!

It's good to be back in the sewing room...mostly because I have a bunch of stuff waiting for me! My fair entry, three t-shirt quilts, six more quilts for the longarm, seriously-I'm-going-to-write-these-patterns quilts... Oh, and training for two half marathons in November!

BOMs Away - RSC/PBJ July

I spent a good part of Sunday sewing blocks into rows, and sashing into strips, and all that together - ready to bring my 2013 Rainbow Scrap Challenge to a finish.

Only to realize that it absolutely looks wrong as a square quilt. Sigh. So the six rows are in sets of two, and now I have to make another set of blocks, and another round of sashing, and...yeah, maybe it'll be finished by the end of the year. (Five years isn't all that bad, right?)

(And in keeping with the monthly color theme - there's my yellow-green for Patterns by Jen, and my red for RSC.)

BOMs Away - RSC/PBJ June

Just moving along, slowly but surely, on my Main Street blocks. I thought about starting a new project - since the Main Street blocks are done and Jack's Chain already has teal-aqua and purple blocks (the assigned colors of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and Monthly Color Challenge.)

But common sense won out, and I put blocks into pairs and pieced some long skinny sashing bits. This is the most boring part of the quilt process for me - so I feel I should get extra bonus points for sticking with it.

Just another few Sundays should have this to a finished top, and then I can start something new finish Jack's Chain. And be all caught up on Rainbow Scrap Challenges by next year. Like a responsible adult.

And I left a section with a purple block and a teal block on top! So I'm technically within the color challenges.
