BOM catch-up

I was doing so well keeping up with my 40 Shades of Grey block-of-the-month project but last month my package of fabrics never arrived.

After waiting for 6 weeks, I sent out an email looking for it.  I know things get shuffled around sometimes in the military postal system but I was anxious to get my blocks made!

My package with the April fabrics arrived and I still didn’t have my March stuff.  I got started on the Catherine Wheels blocks and wouldn’t you know it, the March package showed up a day later!  I have no idea what happened there but I’m happy to say that I’m back on track and all caught up with my BOM’s.

Here are the “Beach Huts” from last month or maybe March.  These were super easy to do and I got them done in only a couple days.

Then the “Catherine Wheels” blocks were from April I guess.

These blocks were also pretty easy.  They’re paper-pieced but nice, big pieces so they went together quickly.

I think there’s only one more month of blocks to make and then cutting the setting triangles and putting everything together.  I can’t wait to see the fabric for the setting triangles.  I thought we would have to sew strips of fabric together but then I realized that it’s fabric with stripes.  That sounds easier!
