Bom Catch ups

So my Forest QAL last block is done and I am busy sketching what to do with them as a final project.  Julianna and Joanna are giving us till August to link a project to their site for a chance to win some great prizes from their sponsors.  For me the best prize is just finishing a project...It is not my strong suit as I quickly get sidetracked onto a new project.  I am thinking I can develop these twelve 12" blocks into a Queen size quilt with the idea rolling around in my brain.  Now if I can just do it in the given time frame???

The last block is the trillium flower and I choose to do mine in the red flower type.  It allowed me to work that color into my quilt one more time.  I love how simple this block was compared to the others.

Now I just have to lock in on a final way to configure the group as a whole.

 Too many choices... I could audition the choices for days trying to find the just the right combo.  I will just have to set this aside for the moment so I can make progress elsewhere.

I got my June Quilt Doodle Doodle BOM quickly knocked out.  Cindy calls this month's block Grad Party as she is deep in planning her son's graduation party but I changed it up a bit and think mine shall be known as the Bird Bath...hee hee hee. I think you can see why...

This is my May Castle Tower block for the gnomes

This is the Castle Tower for the Princesses ( and my grand-daughters)

and I have been promising a sneak peek of the third secret castle so a quick peek to look who moved into the tower this month over at the third castle seems in order

That sneak peek is all you get for now.

Below are the blocks for the last three months Craftsy 2013 BOM blocks. I think I haven't done a very good job of sharing my progress on this one but will try to do better. Believe it or not I have done all the blocks so far including the June block which was a Lemoyne Star.  It had plenty of Y Seams and was definitely challenging...but also very rewarding as it came out beautiful.

And so you don't think it is all work and progress over here we are finding time to enjoy the sun and surf with a quick weekend road trip.

Beautiful day to fly a kite or in our case to watch

A trip to Oysterville to buy some fresh oysters in the shell to throw on the barbecue

Relaxing just to watch the waves

My daughter and I had to dip our toes in the surf
She is the one on the right with the freaky toes :)

Time to leave footprints in the sand as we leave
came too soon
