Because I Don't Have Enough Commitments

October 05, 2008

The trouble would be talking both myself and Japhrimel into it. "The Devil's Right Hand" by Lilith Saintcrow (New - Click the title for my review of the book. Tonya.)

The first of a series of "Scenic" BOM* from the Carol Doak Quilting Group Yahoo! group, designed by Carol Doak, paper foundation piecing icon.

I'm fairly new to the group, and I don't chat there hardly at all, but I thought I'd jump in on this one; maybe if I actually sew the BOM the same day I download it, I'll actually be able to keep up. Or not. Who knows?

Oh, hey, I just realized! I actually followed the pattern with NO changes on this one! Yes, Virginia, it can be done!

*For non-quilters, or maybe just non-crafters: BOM stands for Block (or Blocks) Of [the] Month.

I also finished a POP Block. This is designed by Carmen, our fearless leader over at the One Stitch at a Time Yahoo! group. It's the first in a series of I-don't-recall-how-many 18" blocks. The intent is to put them all together before the holidays, and end up with a gift.


I'm not sure if I'll do all of the POP Blocks in the same color combinations. I did the cutting and piecing as Carmen wrote the pattern, except for 1 thing: I replaced the four orange squares that were to be in the middle with the one print square. I ended up doing quite a bit of seam snipping and re-aligning - with this color combination, there's not much room to fudge on the triangle points!

well at least if you are sewing them up as you download them, they don't become a collectable

Great job on the PP block!
I want to join in on this project too...seems like lots of fun. I have printed out the pattern, but haven't done much else yet.
You were fast!!
