BOM, POM, BOW and GBOM

Not a comic strip reference but Block of the Month, Pillow of the Month, Block of the Week and Guild Block of the Month.  Oh and I finished a baby quilt and finished knitting a pillow.  First the Block of the Months.
The last month of Fat Quarter Shops Designer Mystery BOM

Fat Quarter Shops Snapshots Block of the Month.
Pat Sloan's Vacation Block of the Month
And the Shabby Fabrics Pillow of the Month for May


And Farm Girl Vintage Block of the Week


 And this is our guild's Block of the Month.


And in March I decided I wanted to knit something and learn how to do cables.  I finally finished it two nights ago.
An old intern from my job just had her first baby and I had to make her a baby quilt.  It was a kit I bought at a local quilt store.  It's got a chennille border and minkee on the back.  It was a simple quilt and quick to make but turned out so cute.

 
I did finish the top of one of the block sets from the Fat Quarter Shops Designer Mystery.  I love how it turned out.  Can't wait to quilt it.  I bought some clearance fabric today for the back.

I also got all the blocks done for our guild's challenge.  I need to put them together which I have all laid out and ready to sew.  I'm liking how it turned out.  Can't wait to get it done too.

Thanks for looking.

Nickel Quilt Finished

I took Pat Speth's class in March 2015.  She's the author of all the Nickel quilt books.  If you get a chance to take her class, I recommend it.  I've had the top done for a while - just needed time to machine quilt it.  Finished the binding after a nice mother's day lunch with my hubby and in-laws.  Missed my mom so much today.  Hand stitching the binding down was very good therapy.


This is the second big quilt I've made with this fabric and I still have a lot left.  Here's the first quilt.  It was Pat Sloan's Block of the Month last year called Globetrotting.

I started the Farm Girl Vintage quilt along last week so with that and all my block of the months it looks like I won't be working on too many other projects.  This is the last month for the Fat Quarter Shop's Designer Mystery Block of the Month so I need to work on putting at least one of the quilts together.  Then I have to finish the guilds challenge quilt.  I have all the blocks done and put them out on a design board on Friday so I can put that top together.  And Loose Threads next art project is due in just over a week.  Oh, and I have a baby quilt that I need to put together.  I bought a kit at a local quilt store and it should be fairly easy to put together.

So I need to go.  I have so much to do.  Thanks for looking.
