I'm participating in my first BOM! I'm excited to be a part of a group, it makes feel like I belong to something special. The reason I signed up for this one is because I really like paper piecing and want to continue to build my skills. Every month Kristy (from Quiet Play) is posting a new block in her Craftsy shop. Here is the best part: it's free! Well, it's free for one month but then, if you need more than one month to complete it, it will cost you some moola. As you can see, I waited until the very last day in the month to make mine. I don't recommend doing it this way. The good news is tomorrow she'll reveal February's BOM.
Here's January's BOM:
|Measure Twice Paper Piecing block|
The top, bottom and flowered fabrics are from Laura Gunn's collection, Garden Wall. Top is Grass Bamboo Thicket, flowered fabric is Mural Wee Spring and bottom is Spice Painters. I purchased the tape measure ribbon years ago and this is the first time I had a use for it. Of course, what makes this one special is that I managed to sew the end of tape on crooked! I was going to rip it out and fix it but then I kinda like it being a bit off... It's sort of like me: not perfect but totally within the norm!
