My Home is my Castle

This is a BOM that started in January. I have been collecting each month, but didn't have and couldn't find the right fabric for the sky - that was until I went through a box of pyjama material and found the perfect sky.
So three weeks ago I started with January. The BOM is from Ula's Quiltpage and comes out the beginning of each month. See button on left.

It is a paper piecing project, so I had to check my Craftsy classes to watch Amy Gibson's video on paper piecing. I can do this!

 The beginning fabric I've chosen. I love the sky fabric

Block 1 - January
 So far, so good. Carefully sewing along the lines.

 Finished Block 1 

Block 2 - February
 Finished Block 2 - un-ironed :)
I'm using different fabric for the windows, trying to make it interesting.

LOL - look at DH's legs.

Happy Sewing

A New BOM - Shabby Roses Home by Jenny of ELEFANT

A quilting friend posted on FB about a new BOM.
Should I start a new one?
I always have so many to do - but this one is really pretty.

So yes I think I should :)

Each month on the 19th two new blocks will be released -see button on left for all the details and to download the first two blocks.

Have fun.
