Novembers BOM
« on: November 01, 2018, 11:01:04 AM »
Winter is truly drawing in now and my mind is pulling me back to the wonderful holiday I had last November sailing around the Gibraltar Straits in balmy sunshine so I decided to quilt myself back there..

I hope you will join me in this fun block by Helen Howes, whose designs I just love!

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Ooh that’s a lovely block, think would work with actual nautical themed fabrics or think that would hide the sea, sky and sail impact you get from the colours you used?  I have lots of nautical themed fabrics for making a baby quilt but my original plan I have decided is too complicated for me at the moment.  I’m annoyed I never managed to fit in sewing October’s block while still correct month.

I seem to have got stuck in March.  I love those little houses. 

Since I began to work full time, I don't have enough time to sew.   :(

I'll be trying it.  :)

It's just that I've got a bit of a half-arsed attitude at the moment, and can't be bothered with anything other than than the alteration stuff I HAVE to do.

I did one today (that you've spotted) and the tiger one is ready to go - when I have enough courage to cut curvy lines.

Just seen your July one, very nice!
You do know you are going to start having to share credit if your boys get any more hands on ???

Dont be scared of the curves BW ...

The June block and this months are such gentle curves they sew so easily ...
Sew slowly from the bottom of the block every time, focusing an inch or two in front of the foot, bring the raw edges together ... You will very pleased at how simply they come together .. honest!

And Octobers block works by using the bias edges ... simple bimple !

I’m feeling miserable bout lack of sewing!

Going to tell my husband he isn’t allowed to do anything at all other than puppy supervising a couple of nights this week and on Sunday and see if I can get some done. 

I still need to finish making my sister some cushion covers using the BOM weave block, think started them early August.
