Wednesday: Citrus Sweet Love BOM - September

Howdy quilty friends!

It's my last few days off work (I'm back on Monday) so I'm sewing like a demon trying to get things finished and organised. And as of half an hour ago I have a finish for Friday. *delirious with happiness*  Let's hope the weather clears up before then so I can take some pictures and wow you with my quilty completeness.

In addition. I have received my September package in the post for my beloved Citrus Sweet Love quilt. This is what I have done so far for this month. Are you loving it?  I'm loving it!

Totally owned those flying geese  Easy peasy!

More great fabric choices.

I have two blocks to do this month. The next block is hand pieced and has curves. Gulp. I've bought my plastic for making the templates, and found a YouTube tutorial on hand piecing, so hopefully it will all go well. Fingers crossed. I shall report back next week. Wish me luck!  It's a good way to learn new skills though. 

Here's the recap so far.

On top of that, I had some happy mail yesterday. You got to love spots, right?!

Linking up to Freshly Pieced, Show n Tell Thursday and Needle and Thread Thursday (links on my linky page).  Howdy visitors!

I was soooo tempted with this BOM and now I am seeing it develop - I'm not impressed I didn't join. (but I really have to stop somewhere......you hooked me in to your ABC quilting thingo..argghhh). The blocks look gorgeous.
