BOM Progress and Give Away!
Here are the collection of blocks for my block of the month. I have 4 more to do before August when I need to pick up the next packet. I love the batiks in this quilt and stars are my favorite patterns, its a win-win for me!
This was an "epic fail". I practiced the quilt on the background when I first got the long arm. It has many problems. The yo yo's were made into pins with vintage buttons to sell at a craft sale when that type of pin was popular. None sold. I took all the elements and made this 3d Christmas tree and used a vintage pin and wool needle case for the trunk.
For those who are binding quilts during the Olympics I have 2 completed of the 5 I had prepped. I am also going to bind the pictured Tree quilt to make a goal of 6. I have a give away going on, sign up here.
Tomorrow I will have pictures of the finished quilts and Linky Party. Come on and join in!!
