BOMs Away! – Eternal Bloom #2


Whew. Guys, if I had started with this block last month, I’m not sure I would have kept going with this BOM. There was a lot of seam ripping, and it pretty much took me all of Saturday and Sunday to get it together.

I need to start counting total pieces and record this in my quilting bullet journal, just to see if it beats Ripples and Reflections. The centers of these pansies – including those HSTs – measure 3/4″ finished!

It still needs green bias strips added {as does block 1…and pretty much all blocks till the end when I figure out how to do that…} But boy am I glad to have this one done for a month. As I was cleaning up, I noticed that the first block was #2, and this block was #8. Perhaps I should put them in order…

How about you? Work on any BOMs recently? Stab fabric with a seam ripper?

Gorgeous blocks! I’ve looked at Pam Bono’s patterns several times, but I’m not sure I’m ready for all those fiddly pieces.

Ohhh my goodness that must be a small art quilt, it may have taken a long time to make but what a stunning wee framed piece of art if it was hung. Your colours a re magical in it. Cheers Glenda


Those are really pretty blocks but do look quite labor intensive! I just started a bullet journal this month and quilting figures into it quite a bit 🙂

Wow, that’s a lot of corners to “sew off”! Pretty block, though. I can tell I’ve missed a lot of great stuff while I was away from Blogland!
