Blooming Blossom Box 8

Bit by tiny bit I am catching up with these, although I do have 3 boxes untouched now, and not even counting how many more joining blocks I need to do (clue, it’s a lot!!)

This year I’ve signed up to 2 Block of the Month (BOM) English Paper Piecing clubs. In this post I’m going to talk about the one from Sew and Quilt. I first remember Jessie starting the club a couple of years ago and I ummed and arghed about it. Deciding in the end against it.…… Continue reading Blooming Blossoms BOM (block of the month)
