I did get up at 0400 this morning to put the final border on my 2010 BOM so I could be in the drawing for quilting by Sandy Lachowski...now I am ready for a nap! But...even if I don't win I am still happy to have a completed top and binding made, rather than another project still in pieces!
A friend of mine turned me on to making the binding right when you finish the top, so that if you have to put it aside for a while you won't be searching for that piece of fabric to make the binding only to discover you used it up in another project. That is what I love about quilters...someone always has an opinion or suggestion!
The 2011 BOM mystery that I signed up for was 1930's fabrics! I do not own any 30's fabrics so this is going to be a definite mystery for me and I almost threw up a fabric ball when I saw the lavender fat quarter I was given...yuck! But, that is what a mystery BOM is all about...the wild ride of the unknown mixed with the laughter of your girlfriends!
