October BOM (sorta)

I know I don't need to tell any of you that "life is life" lately and that I haven't been able to do much in terms of quilting.

I haven't forgotten about the BOM, but I must admit that I need to take the easy way out this month and utilize someone else's instructions. Besides, these three blocks have been my eye-candy for the entire year and I knew eventually they needed to be made!!!! Plus, Marcia Hohn has done such a wonderful job with her own BlocksGalore website, I figured I'd give it a shoutout. In the event you haven't come across her site before, it's definitely worth bookmarking if you want LOADS and LOADS of blocks!!!!

I have been able to cut out most of the pieces for the three blocks for October, but haven't been able to scrap up much time to actually sew them together.

Enjoy October!!!!!

Amy, you've done great. I still have only 4 months done, but I hope to catch up. I don't know how you do so much.

Amy, I can totally relate...sometimes, there's just too much to do to get our crafts done. I haven't gotten around to doing the September blocks yet but "plan" to do them today or this week. Not enough time in the day to do it all. I have enjoyed the BOM and want to start putting the blocks together soon. Thanks for taking your time to do this BOM. You did a wonderful job and it was alot of fun. I hope you know that we all appreciate you. I use Marcia' Quilters Cache site all the time, it is wonderful.Have a good week...Happy Fall!
