Moving Right Along



I'm done with the applique on this quilt! Hooray!! I just need to do a checkerboard border around this block and this puppy is ready to assemble! Isn't it exciting when they get to this stage?

I can reasonably foresee finishing up this top as well as the Prairie Paisley this month. Of course, I always stall when I get to the borders. I don't like borders. I know, I know, they're a necessary evil, but that doesn't make me like them any better!

Now, truthfully, the reason I'm trying to finish up some of these BOMs is because ....

Simply Sophisticated Mystery BOM is starting in October!!!!! This fabric is so gorgeous! How do I know, you ask? Because I've already had the privilege of working with it! It's just knock-your-socks-off beautiful!

I hope a lot of my friends in Bloggerland will join me on this one! Wouldn't it be fun to set aside a time each month to do our blocks together? Let's see if we can organize something like that! I always do better when I'm teaming up with someone to sew. We can have our own little Simply Sophisticated Club! After all, we ARE Simply Sophisticated!! LOL

Lovely block - the applique is perfect. Looking forward to seeing the top. Seems like you've been getting lots and lots of sewing done lately. Good for you!

I love that fabric - I'd love to do the mystery - but I just don't dare.

You are on a roll...you've gotten tons done! It looks wonderful!
I saw the new BOM on Kimberly's e-mail yesterday and thought of you...and here you are today. It sure is pretty.

I'll trade you borders for applique for the rest of our lives! :) You know how I have fun with borders and you know how I just can't applique!

Vicky, I am signed up for the Simply Sophicitated and can't wait. I sign up for most of Kimberly's. One thing though is I signed up for the same Xmas one that you did and I am stumped. I am going to machine applique it but I have to study this some more before I do it. Any suggestions.

I'm doing the BOM in the fall, too!! Doing it all together would be great. It would hold me accountable to get it done. I'm doing the Designer Mystery BOM right now.

These colors are so very pretty, and this top went together quickly, to me! Wonderful!
