A little obsession is good when it comes to doing these BOMs, don't you think ?
I get them done - it is proven and true here in my sewing corner :-)
This one is from Northern Quilts - All Birds (Alle fugler) which is the opening words of a traditional Norwegian song.
Yes, it is a kit, and it is plentiful and beautifully packed, and the instructions are good ! :-)
The pieced and appliquéd blocks are both simple and more complicated, the mix of fabrics is good, in sort of a Norwegian / Japanese style - soft colours, both prints and homespun, a lot of Japanese fabrics.
The stitcheries are cute and all with Norwegian text.
I have already received 3 packets, but did not start this one before last night.
Now I have 5 units done, as you see. Not to complicated so far, as 3 of the units were plain squares only.
I have received instructions for 26 units so far, including the big centre stitchery.
I want to catch up so the quilt is done by the time I get and finish the last packet.
This BOM is 10 packets and all the blocks finish 6".
The setting is 8 x 11 blocks, with a centre stitchery motif of 12" x 18".
I am not able to focus on one project only, so the seamen will still be on my focus list too.
I have a strong competitive gene, in case you wondered ( I guess not!! ), but I am very happy "competing" with myself only too :-)
So here goes: How many blocks of both focus projects can I have done by Tuesday September 14th ?
I do have some other things and obligations going on in my life too, so it will not be a 24/7 thing.
To work, oh bold quilter!
