BLooMerS PaRTy

It's time to reveal our FiRsT block... Yes it's January 19th already.
How did you go?  Did you make a start on your block?  Fingers crossed you managed a little bit of work on it. It doesn't matter how much you accomplished... show us over the weekend so we can all drop over to congratulate you.  After all, we all sew / work at our own pace.
If we keep the interest & motivation going WE WILL finish our quilt.

I started using a needle turn applique as I liked the way the flowers "stood up"... but I've changed my mind & I'm now making my quilt using the fusible method instead. I will keep this first block in tact & will possibly make it into a cushion later.


My BLooM is a blend from "Oasis" by 3 Sisters & "StoryBook" by Windham lines & also the 30's & 40's fabrics on a jelly roll for the block borders.
I've gathered different & some extra filler fabrics now too... so I should be all done shopping.

I'm already in LoVe with my NeW first  BLooM.

It's STarTinG

to BLooM... at my house.
I traced, stitched, turned & pressed the first lot of shapes... & it was so much FuN too.
I even used the bias maker for the stem which was very easy as well.
Now I just have to sew it down & block 1 will be done.
I will show it finished at the next BLooMerS party January 19th.

BLooM SAL...
Our first party in 2019... woo hoo... & it's to show off our fabric choices.
The number of "BLooMeRs" taking part in this SAL has grown to around 12...
so lets see if we can keep each other motivated until the finish line.
I have enough fabric to start, but may need a little more just to add different colours along the way.
My BLooM is safely tucked away patiently waiting for me to start... should be any day now...
Then in just 2 weeks we will have our first block done... so exciting... so if you visit again on Jan 19 you can see what us BLooMeRs got up to with the making of our very own BLooM quilt...
