Block of the Month Projects

I thought last night was the sew in. Duh, I need to check dates, LOL. Anyway I ended up having company that stayed over, my dd and her 3 kiddies. So instead of sewing I'd concentrate on organizing projects. I have 3 block of the month (BOM) projects from last year that need to be put together. I have decided not to start any other projects (the exception being aprons for the swaps I've committed to) until these are done. So last night I gathered all the blocks and all the finishing materials together to see exactly what I needed to do to finish up these projects.

This project was a paper piecing project from Piecing with Grace, a LQS. This was my first BOM since I've started quilting. I learned paper piecing at the shop. These are the fabrics from the finishing kit to complete the project.

Next up is the BOM from Pastimes Quilt Shop. I completed the blocks a few weeks ago at the Jersey Girl Quilters get together.

The shop has a finishing kit but I decided not to go with it. I have these matching fabrics and still need to decide how I'm going to complete the top. This will be a quilt that will be donated somewhere down the line.

The last project was another one at Piecing With Grace. This project consists of embroidered blocks and is named the Crazy Compass Quilt by the Hoop Sisters. This was a quilt as you go project so all that is left to do is add the sashing and the binding.

I'm going to use the leftover material to complete the sashing and binding of these blocks. I'm anxious to get this one completed because it matches my newly created sewing room.

Lastly I decided what fabric I'm going to use to do my apron for the Martini Madness Apron Swap. Aprons have to be mailed by February 8 so I need to get busy on it.

So I didn't get any actual sewing done but at least I organized my projects and now know what I need to do. I have my work cut out for me, don't I? Now what I need to do is find the time.
