I am finally caught up with my Wishes Along BOMs. I don't know how it was that I was so busy last month. I don't like getting behind on things because I am afraid I might not be able to finish if I put it off. Now with February and March's blocks, I used up the excess pieces of fabrics and triangle pieces from January's block. I didn't want to accumulate too many scrap pieces. The larger half square triangles I cut out a template to use up the scraps. I hardly had to cut off the larger fat quarter pieces so that's a good thing.

I sat down and finished my Aurifil BOM called Borders by Emily Herrick. I downloaded the pattern when it first went up on the Aurifil blog and started cutting away. As I was cutting I had a feeling that some of the measurements where off, but I didn't listen to myself. I continued cutting.

I have been sewing quite a bit lately. I love sewing small projects because they get done very quickly. Heather, over at The Sewing Loft was having a Sew My Stash challenge and I didn't know if I would have time to work on a new project but at the last minute I made something. The idea is to pull a kit together and the fabrics can only be two fat quarters. I thought it was two fat quarters but from some of the entries I saw it seemed like there were more fabrics incorporated into the finished project. That's ok, better to err on the safe side. The projects that I saw are really pretty. Lots of ideas for fat quarter projects for sure.
