BOMs Away: Next Up for Christmas Figs
I finally finished up the next two "Christmas Figs" blocks for this month:
I loved being able to add a new colorway into that first block which in the BOM is called, as you would imagine, "Flying Geese". This block had the benefit of two new stash purchases made last month on Etsy. I was able to snag a small bundle of some of the "Figs & Shirtings" low volume prints from Farm Road Quilts. They have been a great source for me for Fig Tree fabrics throughout this project. A bundle of grey prints came from Handmade is Heartmade (great shop name, huh?!?) which also contained prints from "Figs & Shirtings" as well as from the "All Hallows Eve" line.
Yesterday I saw the "Virtual Spring Market" video of Fig Tree designer Joanna Figueroa. She has a new fall line in the same vein as "All Hallows Eve" coming out called "Pumpkins and Blossoms". If you're a Fig Tree fan, there are some pretty new lines coming out. I'm going to try my best to resist them!
Funny thing about that second block which the BOM calls "Rolling Stones": I realized as I sewed it up that I had already been working with these same blocks. Also on my design wall is the continuing work on laying out (again) my "Emeralds" project.
So now that the BOM work is done for the month I'm going to back to trying to bring "Emeralds" to a top. Wish me luck!
