Vintage Blooms WIP & OMG

Today I jump on the  OMG  bandwagon.  We are nearing a new year again and I want to be a little more prepared for new starts and new goals.

So as I stumbled across this program via many internet-sharing friends, I had to reflect on which project should I commit to???

Vintage Blooms.  . . . .  I'm ready to get this one off my list.  Three more blocks to create around the center embroideries,  add borders to get this project up to the flimsy stage.  That is my goal.

This quilt is a free project this year shared by Gay at Sentimental Stitches.  You can find the patterns here:

I hand embroidered the flowers with 3 strands of a gold/copper color of floss.  It's much prettier in person than my photo reflects.  Having problems with this old camera.  The blocks of triangles were exceptionally tedious.  Later Gay offered a paper piecing pattern for the block and I love paper piecing but I had already cut out all the parts for the entire top --- 30 blocks actually.  I was going to enlarge it.  After growing quite tired of making these blocks, I backed  up to the 20 block plan.

Here is what I'm working with:

I also have a page dedicated to this project.  You can see more close-ups  HERE .

So I'm joining the November Goal Setting Party found here with Patty at Elm Street Quilts.  Visit there to see what others are working on this month and get inspired to accomplish your own special goals.

Haven't shared my collection of Vintage Bloom blocks for awhile, so also linking up with Susan at Quilt Fabrication  and  Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.  Visit these blogs to see what other quilting friends are creating today.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
