BOM Rehab, Schnibbles and Tutorial Monday

BOMrehab175 Happy week everyone!!! Rehab is going very well and I am happy to report another Fat Quarter Shop Designer BOM completed..004

cute block!!! Strawberry Fields is such a yummy fabric line! Thanks to Sinta for keeping us motivated.


This months Schnibbles project, Summer Day, is coming along nicely. I got all the geese made, sashing strips added and five rows put together007. Two more rows to go and it will be done…..I am doing the happy dance on this one. It calls for a two inch light border, but I just might go without that……as is, it will be the perfect size to hang on my quilt shelf in the entry….hmmm, or guess if I did add the border a table topper in the dinning room….something to ponder!!!

Once again, fun tutorials, and like before if you do use any of these and feature them on your blog, please link back to the designers. Thanks to our generous crafters for use of their pictures and tutorials!

I just love that BOM, the colors and block designs are so beautiful. I told myself I couldn't afford to do another one this year but I wish I had. Thank you also, for all the great tutorial links! That hooded towel is such a great idea!

Allie said...

Wow Cheryl, I love that block and your Summer Day quilt - I vote for hanging it! Show it off proudly, girl! You found some great tutorials, I know that's hard to keep finding them, the bowtie quilt!!!

marcella said...

Your block looks great. I don't know how you'll fit in your bom rehab with all that holiday sewing going on! Maybe you'll have to combine the two :-)
