2016 Free Boms

Just needs binding

and I'll have a finish  

You can see how it looked before I updated it, to better suit my taste, on my Jan 1st post.

This year I plan to play along with Melissa and Shanna and play A Lovely Year of finishes.

My January goals are to make 

  • Something for myself - Stitching Around the Block
  • Something for charity - A Blanket of Love
  • Something for the gift basket - Cheryll's Valentines Swap

I really need one of these.
Clever, cute and practical too.  You can find the very detailed instructions HERE at delightful Green Bee Designs and Patterns.
One of my favourite places, Sewn and Quilted, have released their 2014 class list.  If you are in Melbourne you might like to check it out.  They also have some lovely fabric for reduced prices on their website.
I've enrolled in Hand Piecing and English Paper Piecing to brush up on my skills.

Delightful Flossie Teacakes is having a giveaway for a copy of Love Patchwork and Quilting
Have a wonderful day
