Another Flimsy

I haven't had much sewing time lately. Today, I finished assembling the Park Bench BOM into a flimsy.
The colors certainly don't show up well in this photo. Sorry, but my only camera is my iPhone.

Now I need to buy some backing fabric. I have been on a fabric diet for quite a while. I am only allowing myself to buy fabric if it is for a backing or a binding to finish off a quilt top. I have quite a few in my pile. Yeah. I get to fabric shop.

I am linking up with BOMs Away Monday (link on right).

Thanks for stopping by.

Park Bench Finishing Steps

Rabbit, Rabbit. It is the first day of another month. Yeah! We have all made it to another month. I will no longer lament about how time flies. It is something to be celebrated.

I have caught up with the Park Bench blocks. I finished both installment 7 blocks.

Here is the last installment of the Park Bench project. Block 8; just one block, not two.
Here are all 15 blocks on the design wall, ready to be put together.
Here is an interesting twist. It was fortunate that I was not all caught up with this project. I received an email from FQS that there were two corrections to the finishing instructions. How did that happen? Usually, I am on the wrong side of such occurrences. This time, it was a good thing that I didn't move ahead as soon as I got the fabrics. There were two corrections that needed to be noted in the instruction book. I have now cut all of the pieces to finish the quilt.
I hope to get to this soon. I have complained about having a 9-month contract, and work that never seemed to stop. I now have an 11-month contract and a REALLY steep learning curve. My real work is really interfering with my hobby. Such is life. Stop by again soon.
