Current BOM

Yesterday I decided to tackle the 35th. Ave Sew 'n Vac BOM I picked up last Saturday so I would be ahead of the game. It's something I can sew on for a few minutes then leave to tend to The Boy without losing my momentum!
The pieces were already cut earlier in the week so that helped, and ta-da, here is the block for March. It consists of four smaller sections connected by sashing and I have to make 16 of the small pieces to complete four like the one above. All the small sections are ready to do final construction, this part goes together fast so they should be all finished tomorrow. I tried to keep the random colors contrasting but in the end a couple of squares were very close in hue. Not to worry, it is a big quilt!
 Then I remade last months' block in the larger 12.5" size and boy it was so much easier. The smallest pieces were twice the size and my fingers were thanking me! I am really happy that I decided to switch to the bigger blocks/quilt, this will make a very economical queen size quilt. I am keeping in mind the finished article..............

 I had to borrow this pic from Andee's blog, [thanks Andee] she took the pic with her phone at the 35th.Ave. store  and it's a little fuzzy but you can pick out the blocks we have done so far, the center and the four large stars with sashing. I will take a better photo in March when I go to pick up the next block.
Gorgeous isn't it? Kind of Amish looking I think.
