A week or so ago, my first block of the Fat Quarter Shop’s 2012 Designer Mystery Block of the Month arrived. One look at it and I got so excited about putting it together that I began to resent my original plan to make myself finish all previous blocks of the month (American Beauty and the 2011 Designer Mystery Block of the Month) before starting the new one. Actually, it made me angry.
Then I remembered it was my plan and I could change it any time I wanted. Yay!
So, I did.
The new plan is to finish the American Beauty BOM as one of my goals in this quarter’s Finish-A-Long. That will keep me working on that. As far as the other two BOMs, I will assemble the 2011 and 2012 blocks as the 2012 blocks come in. So, currently the first of block of each of the Designer Mysteries are sitting on my cutting table waiting to be cut out and marked for hand piecing. (I decided to hand piece because with my other goals, I will be doing plenty of machine work!)
So keep your eyes open for updates on this new plan.
And Quilt on!
