As I promised before vacation, I'm starting on those two BOMs that have been accumulating. Donna challenged me to get going and so I have.
But in a somewhat unorthodox way (what, me worry about being orthodox?). I have all the blocks for the quilt I'm calling Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry up on the design wall; there are 120 of these little 6-inch babies and they all need to be sewn together.
So I reached into the storage for the one BOM set, the pieced one, and drew out a packet at random. It was block number eight. I cut all of the pieces and did the marking that was required. And then, using this BOM as a leader-ender, I started putting Vanilla, etc. (perhaps I should call it Neopolitan!) together and block number eight is finished! Since Vanilla, etc. is hogging the wall, I needed to press Himself into service to prove to Donna that it is done. He looks a bit sheepish as though he's afraid someone might deduce that he'd made the block. He didn't.
I wonder if I can use this system to get two more together? Perhaps I'll go down and cut the next one now!
