Not a Block of the Month Fan

I don't really care for BOMs. I usually see them and just think meh. Long and drawn out and if I get the urge to finish it I can't if everything hasn't been released yet.

Then I saw Crossroads. This one was like a round robin and had such crazy colors to it. It was only six months long. I accumulated all 6 months before I started.

Month one had me making 3" churndash blocks. I started out on my Janome 6500 but wasn't getting the precision I needed so I switched to my Singer 301.


Month two found me adding some chunky borders then a seriously skinny border. Month three had me cutting some chunky pluses then cutting them on the diagonal to make them wonky. That was followed by a chunky border then an even skinnier border.


While cutting this round I realized our kit was short some fabric. I hurried over to Wattafind and they remedied the situation. Before finishing this months kit I cut month four to make sure it wasn't short as well.

I'll be cutting the last two months this week because I would hate to get to the end to find out I was short somewhere else and all the fabric was gone from the quilt store!

Stay tuned for rounds four thru six!

Hugs,

Swooze

I don't care for BOMs either but your 6 month one seems not so much of a burden to participate in. Great job, BTW!!
