Sew Red for Women – 2012 – BOM

BOM – Gallery


BOM – Posts

Another Top put together

SewRedI have had these sitting around since last year and finally I put them together into a small top.  I love it!!! I picked up some white with swirlly red for the back.  This is now moving from the “Blocks” pile to the “Tops” pile.  And that gives me another empty “Block Box” for another project!!!!

Win – Win!!!

 

All caught up, what’s next?

Well, I am all caught up with the Sew Red for Women BOM.
I finished the last 3 blocks over the last couple of days.

So I’m off to find a new project to work on.

Seeing Red This Weekend!

This weekend, well last week actually, I was doing some Blog Hopping and I ran across a blog that’s purpose was to “raise awareness of Heart Disease among women by way of creativity and camaraderie within the modern sewing community” – sewredforwomen.blogspot.comgoredforwomen.org

As usual, I am late to the party – Oct was block 9, but the good thing I can catch up – and catch up I did this weekend.  I purchased all 9 blocks and the box arrived on Friday – Yahoooooo!  (Can I use that without paying them a royalty?). The fabrics are gorgeous and bright, not my usual color pallet, but I’m in.  So I started on the blocks and of course I started with the first one.

My Chevron Heart – It’s my #$$%#^@%# alright.  I worked for a full day on this block and it didn’t quite turn out right. In the instructions, they say that the supply extra material, just in case. In this block/kit they actually sent enough to do this block 3 times – except for the white, there was only enough for twice – I needed the third amount, really I did. I pieced and tore apart, measure and remeasured, then cut. Then did it all again. I finished it late last night, but I really spent the whole day on it and I was burned out by the time I got to this point.

It’s not the correct size – I can’t figure that out, the measurements were all correct once I got the center done.  Who knows, when I redo it later on, I’ll have to watch my measuring and check the patterns accuracy also.

So I got up today, and was determined to do more than one block of the 8 I had remaining.  Whew – I got 5 more done. Albeit some of them are rather simple, I have never done any of them before so there was the challenge for me! I can’t wait to get the other 3 done, I hope to have them done before the November block is released – 2 weeks from yesterday.
