Another BOM Finish!

Oh, I am so wicked - I should be doing all my Replies and Comments instead of Posting! I promise I'll dedicate myself over the weekend!

This is my Green Tea and Sugar Beans BOM quilt - today I have sewn the two double pinwheel blocks above the applique - easy-peasey and accurate using foundation piecing! I have mentioned before, I do cheat where I can, to save time! It is gong to be a bright,crazy quilt, isn't it?

Oh, my heart went pitter-patter when I saw this on Sweet P's Blog - Coffee Time Stitches! I think it is a must have, though I will have to figure a way to get the yarn. It can be safely stored until I'm an old lady and have time to crochet, LOL! It is Woodcliff Throw and a free pattern!
Purple and Paisley, you must check this one out - maybe you, too Mary Grace!

Happy Weekend!

Lurline you are so right that quilt you are working on is going to be beautiful. I still favor the newspaper print fabric.

If you want to order the wool from Australia, make an enquiry here - www.americanyarns.com.au
. If she doesn't have it in stock yet she can get it fairly quickly. It isn't actually listed on her website but she says she is the only stockist for Australia. I have dealt with her and can recommend.

Good Morning Lurline!

Wow. Green Tea and Sugar Beans is such a delight. I really really like it. So happy and pretty and interesting, too.

And remember, we'd rather have you sewing away and making THAT the priority than blogging and replies and such.

That's the truth. Think of the things that make your heart sing and we'll sing along with you. Letters, words, comments, replies - that can come later. Much later if you like. We're here!!!

Nedra said...

You sure know how to pick the right BOM's! Love that one too! Your fabric choices are just perfect.

What a cute name, Green Tea and Sugar Beans Bomb Quilt! I love it! It will be an adorable colorful quilt! I also liked that crocheted throw and printed it off for my "someday" drawer! I do love to crochet and knit, but sewing and embroidering are the primary activities as of late! So much to do, so little time! No, no no, I love lots of time, I'm retired! I forgot! Have a lovely day, Lurline! Love your posts!
