Over the last few days, I have been quietly catching up on the 2019 BOM Coming Home by Sarah Fielke. I put this in time out for a few weeks as I knew I wanted to make some changes but I couldn't make up my mind what exactly!
as soon as I saw the small centre houses on the original sketch I knew I wanted to go with a Vintage seaside theme.
I made the fabric choices quite quickly and pieced the centre
Having found a wonderful seaside print fabric, I changed the stars in the next round for more circles so that I could do some fussy cutting.
However I got stuck when it came to the corner blocks, I definitely didn't want to make the large tulip design as although I really love the whimsy of it, it didn't fit with my seaside look. The blocks went into time out for a few weeks while I mulled it over. I decided to wait for the release of part four, make some of the next border houses and then decide. This worked well and once I had found some whale and dolphin fabric, the choice of more circles was easy :)
I really enjoyed picking the fabric combinations for the next row of houses or in my case beach huts, lots of opportunity to fussy cut fun fabrics
I am now caught up apart from the appliqué (most of this is just glue basted) I have everything in place and am really looking forward to sitting stitching in the garden over the next couple of weeks.
