Block of the Month
Have you every bought block of the month kits? If so did you EVER finish them.
A few years ago I thought the BOM kits at JoAnns were a great idea. Everything was cut out for you, color coordinated and easy directions to follow. I bought the blue and yellow ones as at the time I had blue and yellow in the living room.
I made a few blocks and there it sat for several years. About a year and a half or so ago I finally got them out and finished up all the blocks. I then decided that I didn't want a full sized blue and yellow quilt so using the setting kit I made the blocks into two lap sized quilts.
I quilted and bound one of the lap quilts about a year ago but the other one has been sitting on my UFO shelf ever since. I even had a piece backing made for it but never had the interest in finishing it.
This past weekend I decided to get it quilt, bound and out of the way. I got it quilted over the weekend and now handstitching down the binding in the evenings. It will be nice to have this one DONE.
Sad thing is that I purchased two other years worth of BOM and they ended up undone also. One set I ended up selling on ebay last year and the other set still sits here waiting for me to start on.
