A Little Progress

Yes, today was a work day. Yes, I would have expected that I could finish up Block 12 of the American Beauty BOM, but that did not happen! I had a bit of work to do. (Fancy that! At work of all places!) The work day always goes faster when there is real work to do!

So here are the pictures of the progress.

First I finished these sections:

Then these:

Then these:

And that is as far as I got. Well, not exactly, but I'll wait to take pictures of the next sections until both are completed tomorrow.

Also, the Fat Quarter Shop is starting to take orders for their Designer Mystery Block of the Month 2012. I keep telling myself that I really prefer to pick my own fabrics. I tell myself that I haven't completed the American Beauty Block of the Month so I haven't allowed myself to start the Fat Quarter Shop's Designer Mystery Block of the Month 2011. Therefore, I have no business signing up for this one! But the fabrics are gorgeous and I'll bet I do!

What I like about BOMs is that you only cut one block at a time. I hate long cutting sessions. They drive me nuts. Even with my new cutting table my back gets tired. Grrr!

What I especially like about the Fat Quarter Shop's Designer Mystery BOMs is that the blocks are always gorgeous, the fabrics are gorgeous and you get plenty of fabric in case of mistakes (or hoarding desires).

And no one has paid me anything for this advertisement.
