BOMs Away - Fall All Around & Octopus's Garden


Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Do you ever start Block-of-the-Months and then not finish them? 
Or maybe you just like doing a lot of them?
This is where you can share what you're doing on a BOM or anything you work on at given intervals. 
Show us what you accomplished in the past week or so!
(Linky at the bottom.)

Hi, everybody. I'm really sorry I wasn't able to post last week. I hope you were able to link up through Kate's blog. 

We had to go to a family funeral over in Nebraska. Helen lived a long, full life, just over 91 years, but she's left a hole for many of us. Now that I have my computer back from the shop, I'll have to make a post for her later in the week.

For BOM work, today I did a good batch of work for Fall All Around:

Two main blocks: Coat of Arms, 


and Herald Square,


as well as 14 more border leaves (they come in sets of two per color):

Hopefully, I'll get back my mojo soon for working on
that Wind in the Whiskers quilt!!

Also, the applique work for Octopus Garden block 2 is finished now!



I'm waiting until all the blocks are made to start a second round for the embroidery that gets added in. Been getting a little tired of looking at this project every evening for stitching time, so I'll be prepping the next Mexico Fiesta block as soon as I get a chance. It works way better for me when I can alternate between this project and that one from day to day.  *Love* my peaceful hand stitching time, but the lengthy nature of the projects get me feeling restless about them fairly easily.

How about you? Did you get any BOM quilting done?

Kate over at Katie Mae Quilts has joined me in hosting this meet-up,
and linking up from either end puts you on the party at both sides.

:)

I really love the pieced blocks you are making. They are not my kinda fabrics... and I would love to see them in something more contemporary, but they will make a gorgeous quilt once it is finished. Always lots to see and do!

Really love your Fall all Around. Gorgeous fabrics as well. All year long I wait for fall. My favorite season of all. It's a little too short in Texas...:)
