Month 4 of Sarah Fielke's BOM pattern arrived while I was in the chaos of moving everything upstairs, it wasn't until today that I decided to work on it. I pulled my project box out and was ready to go in 5 minutes - I love having project boxes - Hurray for being super organised!!
I got everything out as I wasn't sure where I was with this quilt...
I have finished the blocks for months 1 and 2
I have almost finished appliquéing the bird block from month 3
The heart appliqué block is prepped
I have sewn down a couple of the wreath filler blocks
and prepped the rest
Some of the star filler blocks have been pieced
and the fabrics cut out for the remainder
I am still in love with these Liberty fabrics, I bought a few more small pieces while I was up in town a few weeks ago
I used some of them in the appliqué block for month 4 (I have since added a couple of orange circles to this block)
I also prepared this month's Hawaiian appliqué block, you can't see from the photo but the design is drawn on the block in silver pen, you can see 1/4 of the pattern from the template; you cut away the appliqué fabric as you come to stitch it, it is all thread basted in place so hopefully will be easy enough to stitch down :)
I have laid out the pieces for the star block - I really need to make myself a bigger design board!
I am really enjoying working in my new space, I hope to keep up with the prep for this quilt, so I will have plenty to sew by hand when my family visit this summer.
