Blogger's BOM august

Here's my August Blogger's BOM blocks hosted by Jackie. Only one more block to go and then we're done.

I have to say this is something I'll miss doing. It's been a thrill to see the new block every month and yet very, very easy to keep up (and let's all just forget that the lovely May block, which caused me to stall for 3 months just thinking about all the itsy-bitsy pieces.. and which turned out to be one of my overall favourite blocks of them all!)

This month designer was none other than the fantastic Amy from 'Amy's creative side' who also hosts the Quilt festival. She made a fun, vibrant block. Over the past three months I've decided to tone my blocks down a little as my my blocks were getting a bit too crazy. So I opted to use 2 tone-in-tone fabrics and dark/white rather than 4 vibrantly different colors. I still love the block though:

I swear - they're not wonky. Just didn't press them yet   :)

And here's all the blocks that I've made so far. Next month there will not be room for my toes anymore  :)
I've made two of each block from the beginning so I'm up to 24 blocks now.

Overall it's been a bit quiet here at my little blog the past weeks. Blame it on the wonderful August weather we have had - here in Denmark we gotta make the most of it when it's finally here.  Also, my new job has been somewhat draining - lots of fun, lots of challenges but also a lot of talking to people all over the organization, trying to make head and tale in what they want and why they havn't succeeded in getting it done before. Most nights you'll find me passed out on the couch by 9.30. New job and sewing creativity does not go hand-in-hand  :)


  1. I think your colors are very eye catching without being "in your face". :o) I'm afraid I fell off of the BOM wagon a few months ago. I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone finishes their quilt and wondering what Jackie will share.

  2. The colors on this are just stunning!

  3. Hi Cille! All the blocks are great and they will make adorable quilt! Especially I love your colours! I'm so happy to hear that you have had lovely weather! x Teje

  4. Love all your blocks together. The colors are gorgeous! I hope I can make a nice quilt by just making one of the blocks each month. You were so smart to make two of each!
