New BOM for 2017

Sarah Fielkes new BOM 'Down the Rabbit Hole' for 2017 is now ready for signup. I have soo enjoyed this years Happy Days. I look forward to the last day of the month where I am sent an email with a link to my own personal video showing all the techniques for the current month.

 
The rabbits can be changed to two other options, more details on Sarah website.
For $5.84USD a month or $70USD for the 12 months you receive a downloadable pattern and a video link.

 
Sarah made 3 quilts for this years BOM, this is her black and white one, she also made one with a pink colourway and one with a blue.
 

 
My 12in blocks are the right top and bottom pics. As usual I still have a few 12in blocks to complete but have finished all the smaller blocks. The mess by the sewing machine is from two 12in foundation pieced blocks lol. Ive used my beloved Le Bouquet and Le Belle Fleur from my French General stash.
 
I hope to be finished by the end of November as we will be starting the borders....but alas in three days ..I am taking our little family to Plantation Island, Fiji for a glorious 10 days!!!! After waiting for a LONG time we have finally received passports for our sibling group of 3; Master 10, Miss 9 and 8 are soo excited as they have never been on a plane before...Miss 4 wont be making this trip, hopefully next time.

Sew busy...

I love stitchalongs... they keep me on task...sort of .... I've been working hard the last few days catching up (shhh I know I said on task lol) on my Sarah Fielke BOM. This is last nights effort


All that mess is from one block lol... I do love paper piecing and have two more to complete today. 
I finished this block yesterday... This was take two lol


This was take one...the kids (five of them) were playing the wii.... I was coach, mediator, mummy and keeper of the piece)... I mixed up a few pieces...was thinking of stopping, but no.. I unpicked.. Okay I will sew this block together and move on to the next one.


I am loving this BOM, appliqué, EPP and foundation piecing...I will be signing up for Sarah's 2017 bom as well. I'm using my beloved French General stash... And had to replenish a few fabrics  hehehe..this is the third quilt I've used from this stash....I used it on Natures Journey and my WIP Gossip in the Garden.... 
Tis cold and overcast day today, kids are playing the wii again...so I better start Stítching and play the occasional Mario Kart....
Happy Stítching !
