Love the fabric Cheesecake, very kimono-ish.

Here is my BOM.  For those who haven't ventured on to the Japanese sewalong thread, the 3 kimono fabrics are the ones I am using for my Japanese garment - a kimono style robe.  The background fabric is the wrong side of some cotton lawn left over from a top I made.  I found it a bit tricky using 3 different types of fabric, especially the floppy lawn, and of course, was on the penultimate bit before it occurred to me that I could have used starch.

Just to say Thank you for everyone submitting their blocks, I was beginning to think BOM had lost its appeal!

There are a lot of things competing for my time at this time of year especially if the weather is half decent.  I've had visitors all weekend so I felt like a quiet couple of hours to myself in the sewing room - it's too hot to do much outside in the middle of the day anyway.

I'm not going to participate this month as I don't have any suitable fabric, but I'll definitely be back in July. :flower: <3  :flower:

I luuurv that Ploskin. You can swank about in your new robe and match the cushion/framed block/whtever you decide to do with it.
I just love that fabric. I've managed to not buy it because I bankrupted myself on Craftsy but it's still on my watch list.  :ninja:

I did mine with the same fabric that I've used for the other blocks, no Japanese type fabric in sight.

Where is the shame, Imi?  What have you done, apart from given us the opportunity to try lovely, new thongs? :[

Most BOM'ers achieve a uniform size of block so you can construct them into something usable at the end of the year.

I just started this to keep myself out of trouble and active over the year, so didn't even think about uniformity and sizes as can be very clearly seen from Malis ramshackle (my ramshakleality) collection.

and next months BOM (well the one I have been thinking of) will, I'm afraid, carry on the theme!
