I have a question for those of you wanting to do the BOM but it will be later in this post so . . please keep reading.
The promised nap never happened. We did order a new weather radio. When we moved here, we never found the one we had in Kentucky. It’s probably still in a box in the garage! 🙁 Vince picked one up at Radio Shack and we can’t turn off the alerts we don’t want so we get flash flood warnings, thunderstorm warnings and all kinds of warnings. Mostly, I think it just goes off as soon as I go to sleep! Last night I know it went off at least a dozen times and only once was it a tornado warning. Tornado warnings are the the only things I want to hear so we ordered a new radio today that will let us turn off all the warnings we don’t want to hear. That may help us get more sleep!
This is what took priority over my nap! We ordered another half of beef and it will be ready Wednesday so I needed to defrost the freezer before the beef arrived. Glad I got that done. The drawer at the bottom is my Louisiana drawer. It has shrimp, sausage and boudin that I bring back when I go home. I miss Louisiana food so much!
And, here’s what else took priority over my nap.
The main part of the BOM quilt is put together. I love it and can’t wait to get the borders done, come up with a quilting plan and get started. It’s up on the design wall upside down or sideways from the picture I’ve shown you previously. Chad helped me get it up there and I wasn’t about to ask him to turn it around.
My question to those of you wanting to do this as a BOM: Do you want just the blocks or the setting/borders also? I don’t mind doing both if enough of you truly plan to use it but the setting is a lot of work. It isn’t *hard* but it takes some planning and thinking. You all can do it but if you think you’re just going to do your own thing with a straight setting, I’m not going to write out all the instructions for the setting and borders.
This quilt is seriously not hard to make. I’ll share some tips with you along the way. I learned some things while doing this quilt. I always do! If you like it and if you think you want to do it, please give it a try!
And . . it needs a name. Any ideas??
