Joy of Life BOM

And then there was time to prepare the next block in the Joy of Life BOM. I am sewing it together with Bjørg (no blogger) and now Irene (also no blogger) has joined us in this BOM.
It is always so nice to come together to prep the blocks. Discussing colours, making templates and cutting pieces. Just three of us but the table (and the floor) is filled with our stuff :)


We helped Irene starting her first block and have given her a lot of homework to next time.

Bjørg had "cheated" and finished block number three. I know we agreed to start on this at home early in january and she is a fast sewer so I should have known she would finish it before we had our next meeting.

And here is Bjørgs blocks so far. Four finished and one to prepped.

I started to prepare both block number three and block number four. So I have a lot to sew now. But I love to do needleturn applique. Will show you more photos later, but I have to make a lot of bias first so I can start sewing on these two blocks.
Quilt meeting tomorrow. Hope the ladies brings a lot of things to show and tell. I'll bring my camera.
Saying for today:
Making a friend takes a moment,
being a friend takes a lifetime.

Wow, that quilt looks so good in blues as well. I've been admiring the progress on yours in the pinks and reds and I love it.
Have fun at your quilt meeting, ours starts back on Monday after a long Christmas break so I'm really looking forward to the show and tell there too :o)
Hugs,
Joy :o)

Hi May, Oh you girls are really going fast. I am still on block 3 which should be block 2 but I have to do things back to front! I am really going to have to get the skates on. The blue version is lovely. Lucky you can all be together to sew on these blocks.
I will have the block finished by the end of the month. Only 2 days to go.
Bye for now, kind regards from Liz

Those quilt blocks are just beautiful, love them in blue. I think I might need to add this to the list of TO DO's (so much for finishing one project a month, can we start another....how many projects a month you can start?)
cheers Julz
