I know, I know...I don't need a new project...but I couldn't resist. I got a bundle of Park Avenue and it's been calling to me for weeks...I resisted as long as I could and today I caved...Rosettes by Fig Tree Designs. I'm going to really have some fun with these blocks...I also discovered as I was playing with the fabric, that Maison de Garance looks really nice with Park Avenue...so I'll be mixing them up and have lots of choices for combinations.
Yesterday's mail brought this month's installment of the Designer BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop...as soon as I saw the pattern I knew I wanted to do this block right away......it was so much FUN! This is going to be the cutest quilt!
I also tried...tried being the key word here...to do Month 10 of the Civil War Tribute BOM...the best description I can come up with is NIGHTMARE! I thought last month was bad...there were partial seams and set in seams in those blocks. This month the block looked pretty easy when I first looked at it...then on further review I realized that there were set in seams again. Well I followed all the directions and got all my parts together, then the directions said something like refer to month 9 for set in seam directions...well, I've been at this quilting thing for a lot of years, and for the life of me I can't get these blocks together...I just can't do it. Somehow I think for the price of this BOM we could get a bit better directions. My solution is that I'm pitching the block parts that I did, coming up with my own blocks to fill those 2 spots. OK, sorry...that was a rant and I really do try not to do that...but if you're doing this BOM I wanted to make sure you had a warning! Or maybe someone has figured this one out and you can let me know what I'm missing here.
Hope everyone has a great week!
