BOM quilt


Bradie Sparrow from APQS is having a BOM( Or actually 2 blocks a week) on her blog.
I saw the print (curtains) in the thrift shop and just had to get them. I took them apart and put them in my stash till I could figure out what to do with them. When I saw Bradie's quilt, I knew why I had been saving them.
Here is a pic of what I have so far. I am loving it. Can't wait to see it finished.

Starting to think about what I'm taking on my trip. I go to my daughter, Nancy's, house in Arizona on Sunday so we can leave first thing (and she WILL get up when I tell her to) Monday morning. Heading to Ft. Benning Georgia for the birth of my first greatgrand, Lydia Grace Allen. We may drive straight through but it all depends on how we feel at any given moment. After that, we will head to Chattanooga so I can load up on thread from Southern Threads, then to Nashville to visit my friend, Faye. Then to Clarksville to see my niece that I haven't seen in over 20 years, then head on home with a little sight seeing along the way.

I hope everyone has a great week.
