BOM Madness, Part 2

These blocks were supposed to be finished a couple of days ago, but things got kind of insane! I started training at a tutoring center (which I am LOVING), and I had in-service as school (can't wait to meet the kids on Tuesday, and see the ones from last year!). To finish them, I went on a bit of a cutting and chain-piecing spree.

1. July Sisters' Ten Block, 2. August Sisters' Ten BOM, 3. August Sisters' Ten Block, 4. July Sisters' Ten Block
Anyway, I can't believe there are only 2 months left in the Sisters' Ten BOM. If my calculations are correct, I'll have to make two of each of the next blocks, plus two extras from previous ones. That's okay though - I'll be talking about this more when the quilt is done, but the blocks have really improved my precision in terms of piecing, cutting, and even fabric selection (if you can have precision in that!)

All Sisters' Ten - as of August

You can see more blocks in my Flickr photostream, if you are interested!


  1. They are so pretty together! What is the background color/fabric you're using? It looks like a greyish blue.

  2. You sound pretty excited about the coming academic year. Good luck with it.

  3. They look fantastic all together Jess - really great blocks!

  4. looking great. I am still stuck on January!! I think now I will just make a few more and make them into pillow covers - I am never going to catch up on them all!

  5. I have to agree... Your fabric selections are awesome and your piecing is amazing! Great job on those blocks! Can't wait to see the finished top!

  6. I love the gray background on these blocks. It makes the colors really pop!
