YeeHaw! I was able to finish the two blocks I had planned for the OMG. And, surprisingly, I finished them really early -- maybe in the first week. I don't remember. I actually looked at doing more blocks but as usual I was overcome with indecisiveness. It takes me longer to pick the fabric for each block then to make the blocks. Sigh.
This block was already cut out, ready to iron down. Because it is small it didn't take much time to finish, even sewing down the ribbons. (If that dark blue looks familiar it can be seen as the background on this piece. I noticed I also was mentioning my upcoming goal and there was a picture of this block before I started on it in August.)
Much of this block was already done -- letters were cut out and some of the backgrounds were already chosen. The majority of the time was spent stitching down the letters and making the tree. Excellent. Now if I could just get going on some more blocks.
Which comes to my September goal: I'm going to get two more blocks done from the Christmas Favorites book. Yes, really. I'll pick the colors and get two more done. I may work on pieced blocks instead of appliqué but it's picking the fabrics that always gets to me. I was thinking of using a block kit I bought in Alaska in the mid '90s but I'm not that in love with it and its mate. (What was I thinking when I bought an Alaskan version of Sun Bonnet Sue?) I have it on the goals for this week so maybe I will spend time sewing it down but we'll see.
I'm linking up with Red Letter Quilts and Let's Be Social. Take some time to see what others are up to in their studios.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
