Design Wall Wednesday …

It’s BOM time!  I’ve been working on 2 Block of the Month quilts, The “Aurifil 2013 BOM” and “Jingle Belle”.  I don’t actually have them on my wall, but there isn’t anything there, so I’ll have to show you work table shots.

This is the February block for the Aurifil 2013 BOM, all lain out ready for me to stitch the next time I sit down at my machine (tomorrow).  I’m excited about watching this quilt come together.  It’s going to be done in Christmas colors for my bed.  Actually, so is the February applique block for Jingle Belle.

I’m using the same colors in each of these quilts, so by the end of the year, I’m probably going to be sick of red and green, but I will have 2 quilts to show for it, so I won’t have to make another Christmas quilt for a while.

I do have other things that I’m working on.  There is the seemingly never ending embroidery around the perimeter of the Bluebird quilt.  And I haven’t even shown you the Crabapple Hill BOM, which isn’t a quilt at all, but one of those perpetual wall calendars with cute little embroidered blocks that you can move around from month to month and year to year.  I’m really going to enjoy having that! 

Oh, and the 2 French Cottage Garden quilts/bedspreads. I am going to finally finish one of those ….. well the top anyway (I won’t quilt them until they are both done) probably in the next couple of weeks.  I have to tell you, I love love love the way those are turning out,  But I’m so sick of making pinwheels.  It feels like I’ve made a   thousand of them.  I’ll post a picture of the one I have finished when I finally do get it finished.

So, for now, that’s enough to keep me busy.  Hope you enjoyed taking a peek.

Enjoy,  Merry Gay
