BOMS Away - Pushing for two finishes


Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Do you ever start Block-of-the-Months and then not finish them? 
Or maybe you just like doing a lot of them?
This is where you can share what you're doing on a BOM or anything you work on at given intervals. 
Show us what you accomplished in the past week or so!

Lots of good BOM work this cycle:

Since I'd left the last baggies of my pieces out for Star Crazy, on Tuesday I finished up the rest of its blocks!  


WHOOP! WHOOP!!!! I am insanely happy for this quilt's blocks to All Be Made!!


And today I finished the last two focus blocks for Fall All Around:

Palace Garden

Magnolia Court

as well as getting half the strip sets sewn together for doing the sashing and cornerstones:


Can't wait to get each of these quilt tops assembled!

**Next-day Edit**

I finished up the last of the blocks for Fall All Around.  :D

The last 14 leaves, 31 sashing blocks, and 20 checkerboard cornerstones: 



How 'bout it?  :)  Did you do any BOM work lately?

It was a gorgeous day here today. Perfect for pulling everything out of the garage to sort through keepers and sellers and get the car back in there.  :)

Around that ginormous job, I got all of the month 10 work finished and about 2/3 of month 11 for Star Crazy:


I so completely am ready for this quilt's blocks to be FINISHED!!  heh!

Oh! And I'm so proud of my oldest daughter. Heather's been managing to keep moving forward with her Taekwondo work even while going through medical school. Yesterday she tested up to Bodan level. :D  I really don't think I could do that - she just amazes me.


Did you manage to get some BOM work done this past week or so?

BOMs Away - Fall All Around & Octopus's Garden


Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!

Hi, everybody. I'm really sorry I wasn't able to post last week. I hope you were able to link up through Kate's blog. 

We had to go to a family funeral over in Nebraska. Helen lived a long, full life, just over 91 years, but she's left a hole for many of us. Now that I have my computer back from the shop, I'll have to make a post for her later in the week.

For BOM work, today I did a good batch of work for Fall All Around:

Two main blocks: Coat of Arms, 


and Herald Square,


as well as 14 more border leaves (they come in sets of two per color):

Hopefully, I'll get back my mojo soon for working on
that Wind in the Whiskers quilt!!

Also, the applique work for Octopus Garden block 2 is finished now!



I'm waiting until all the blocks are made to start a second round for the embroidery that gets added in. Been getting a little tired of looking at this project every evening for stitching time, so I'll be prepping the next Mexico Fiesta block as soon as I get a chance. It works way better for me when I can alternate between this project and that one from day to day.  *Love* my peaceful hand stitching time, but the lengthy nature of the projects get me feeling restless about them fairly easily.

How about you? Did you get any BOM quilting done?
