Finished BOM from 2012

This was a bom from the Stroll the Block group.  I did some large running stitches to hand baste it before I started quilting on my sewing machine.  I usually just spray baste the backing and use pins too.  It really helped to keep things from shifting to have the thread basting.  I will be doing that now with the larger quilts that I attempt to quilt.  An interesting note about this bom is that 12 members of the STB group signed up to design and write a pattern for this bom.  I signed up for June and did the sunflower block.

#8 Fall Colors bom.  Done.


  1. I love it Betty. Good choice on your backing fabric too. You did a good job as always. Congratulations on another finish!

  2. Congratulations on your finish Betty! I will be browsing through your blog to see a closer look at your sunflower block.
