Block Talk with BOMs Away

I am really enjoying the Add a Border Group I joined, and finished another border, and can now mail off the two 18" blocks I have been sitting on. This one did not take nearly so long for me to figure out. I happened to have the same fabric for the corners, simply mimicked the HSTs, and used a fun rooster print to liven it up.
I had hoped to have the 12" done for the post as well, but I chose to do some handwork on it so it will be another week or two, and I will save the reveal for then. After all, it is best to save the best for last and it is really cute!
Hydee over at Splish Splash Stash launched a new linkup party this week to share EPP projects. Of course, I dug out my old(est?) UFO, a traditional Flower Garden. I counted 20 completed blocks. Hopefully the party commitment will help me get this project moving since that is about one per year maybe..  I know I should be doing the border hexies, but I have yet to decide the border plan. I will post my most recent border thoughts in a future post and maybe get some feedback from the partygoers:-)
For now, the party did get my butt in gear enough to fussy cut some hexies for the 21st block.

Linking up to In Hand EPP , and with Lyn of What a Hoot for BOMs Away


  1. You have quite a variety of fussy gut flowers. Yes, working out the overall plan is a process....

  2. 20 blocks?! That's awesome. And congratulations on #21. :) Thanks for linking up!
    I like that rooster print. In fact, I just bought it in the brown! Happy sewing.

  3. Haha! I love the chicken fabric in the large block. And the fussy cutting for the hexies is really lovely. Good luck on jump-starting that project. It looks like it's a neat one. :)

  4. Excited to see your old UFO find new momentum. Would be interested to hear your thoughts on a border.

  5. Your add a border block looks great and I like your hexies :)

  6. Wow, what an interesting idea, the add a border group is so thank you for sharing that! I had to go look of course. What a great way you have with fabrics, keep up the good work.

  7. Extremely cute fussy cuts! I'm working on a flower garden and currently agonizing over my border.
