Heart & Home August

Here's my block for this month.... I am working on cutting out a new wool project.  I can't sit on the couch without something in my hands.

The original pattern had berries and leaves on the trees-- I decided  I didn't want them.

When I started connecting pieces this one turned out to be smaller.  It's my never ending problem with 'attention to detail'.  Well, I could have gotten on a fit, but instead I added an extra border around, with some left over fabric from another block.  Here's the row---
 (notice puppies wrestling in the background)

Putting it all together the quilt is darling and a ton of fun-- I love this block of the month program.

Oh it looks so good Melanie. And a great idea to add the extra border for your block that was short. You've given it your own personal touch ;)

Melanie, you have done a wonderful job on this - it is perfect! What a fun project and you have really personalized it to reflect your own home.

I can't just sit either. I like to have some kind of handwork to do.

Things are looking so good with your wall hanging. I hate it when something comes up short but finding a solution was easy for you this time. And no one would know if you didn't tell them.

Are you making plans to do another BOM of some kind?

I have had "size" problems in the past as well. I always hang on to any extra BOM fabric I have for just this situation. This is a great quilt!
