I decided to take part in the Aurifil BOM again this year. Brigitte Heitland shares the Aurifil Designer of the Month free block for January. I decided to do it again with batiks.
This is a group of batiks that I picked up a while ago from Fat Quarter Shop. It was one of the daily specials and I got it for 50% off. The creme pine bough batik is a 10 yard piece I bought from Connecting Threads – got that one 50% off too.
When I stitched the 2 1/2 inch corner pieces I added another row of stitching a very scant 1/4 inch away and then when I trimmed that off I had some small half square triangles.
I then squared them down to 1 – 3/4 inch squares.
I don’t know what I will use them for…..possible a mug rug. I’ll wait and see what other leftovers I end up with in the months to come. Are you taking part in this BOM?
I guess it is probably time to quilt last years BOM……
