BOM Rehab . . . .

It's BOM Rehab reporting day!  I'm not the only one working away on BOMs, check out Sinta's blog to see how other quilters are also making some progress on their projects.  

This week's block was easy.



As a matter of fact, it was so fast and easy I made another one!


This is block 7, the final main block!  Now for the real fun, putting everything all together.

I can hardly wait to see it finished, not to just have something off my To Do list, but I'm just so darn curious too see what this quilt is going to look like, it's such a dramatic change of pace for me.  Do you think I'll be able to finish the whole thing without adding a smidgen of red?  So far I've not been tempted in the least to add any color, I could not be happier with these blocks.

For those stopping by for the first time, this is Northern Lights by Marti Michell.  Select Northern Lights from my "Categories" list to see all the finished blocks.

  2. Very nice! You could always use a backing fabric with a little red in it.

  4. I love 'red' quilts, too, and focus on reds when choosing fabrics, but the neutrals are so calming that a piece of red in there will probably give you the jitters!!!... LOL.

  5. This is so, so awesome. I know what you mean about the red, but this needs to just be neutral. I am going to have to make a neutral quilt one of these days.

  11. They're beautiful Thelma! I'm glad I stopped by to see what you've been up to. After working with lots of color lately neutrals have such a calming and elegant look. Makes me want to start it but this is supposed to get us working on our UFO's not begin something new! Thanks for sharing.
