BOM's Away / {Sew} Modern Monday

Enjoyed a weekend away with friends, but was allowed to be productive too!

Here is Block #3 - Tulips in my Pam Bono Out of the Darkness quilt.

I also finished this little pot holder made with the Sashiko technique. My first Sashiko project. Actually enjoyed it since the stitching goes so quickly. I started this in a class last weekend from Pepper Cory at EESchenck's Spring Trends event in Portland. Had I realized what we were stenciling was going to turn into a potholder, I might not have chosen a circular design or 3 or 6 sided design, but none the less, I liked the hearts of the stencils available to choose from and ended up creating this.

I even got the sleeve sewn onto my Charmed Network - Eva version which will be in the Tri-City Quilter's "Stitchin' Stars" quilt show March 30 and 31. I'll also have "Spinner" --the EQ BOM layout winner (which still needs to be bound YOWZA! but was left drying in its blocked position on Friday, but I did get the piping made) and "1892 Rondure" --my McCalls Quilt Design Star 2011 round 1 entry.

Check out other BOM's progress at Lyn's What A Hoot linkup and other modern finishes at Canoe Ridge Creations.

The voting is now open for the Golden Quilter awards ...stop by SewCalGal's blogpost and vote!


  1. Gorgeous tulip block, for sure. I've never tried sashiko work - not even sure, really, what it is. Some day I'm sure I'll explore it. :)

  2. Oh my! Wish my tulips looked that good. They are confused this year with all the warm weather!!!
