Finished Blocks!


Oh, how lucky was I - a block completed from each great quilt over the weekend! Yes, I did feed the family and yes, I did babysit two rowdy 5-year olds overnight Sat/Sun!

Above Block 1, from BOM by Sue Ross/Material Obsession. I have had a few enquiries and am waiting on a phone call from the girls to see whether there are any more vacancies for those who would like to join in!
My Civil War Bride Quilt - Block 1! I feel I have stepped back in time and am so enjoying doing serious applique. This IS my thing - maybe a fairly serious accident and the big move from Brisbane had interrupted my applique journey - never mind, the main thing is I am doing what I love now, and will have to decide which block to start next.
Hope you had a lovely weekend, too!
PS - I have just heard from Kathy at Material Obsession. If you are keen to join in the BOM please email her at materialobsession@ozemail.com.au

Stunning Lurline...both of them! How did you find the time to do these in your extra busy weekend, you are amazing! I have almost finished my practise BOM block, but haven't touched civil war yet..hopefully soon. I'm loving the inspiration I'm getting from you though! xo

Beautiful job on both blocks.

Even if they don't have room to let people in for the BOM, I would like the pattern and how to get the templates. I notice they don't give any info at all. Any leads?
