I must say – I’m rather pleased with how it finished up! I wasn’t sure what colour sashing to use but then I glanced over at the
I cut my sashing to 2” so it’s 1.5” on the wall hanging. I didn’t bother with a border – just cut a wider binding (2.5” and considered that bordered it enough ;)
Oh and that black and white stitchy fabric I originally planned for the sashing? It turned out to be the perfect size for the backing. Serendipitous! (Yeah I was just hanging out for a chance to use that word!).
I have hung it up on my wall in my sewing nook. I say nook because it’s not a room, it’s just a little space off the lounge room. It fits my sewing desk, chair and stash cupboard. What more could a girl want?! Okay being honest, my sideboard (fabric gathering place) and dining table (cutting and pressing station) at the other end of the room also comprise my sewing space.
So my wall hanging is done and brightening up my sewing room!
Don’t hit the panic button yet though, lovely BoMers. You still have all of October to put yours together. I just thought it might be helpful to see a finished version! Oh and here’s a good chance to show off my Wombat Stew version (the version that started the entire BoM idea!). Just for another thought on how to put the blocks together into a wall hanging.
You can read the details on this one over here on the original blog post.
I am very much looking forward to seeing how others put their blocks together! We will have a big Show N Tell party back here for the first week or so of November. The linky party will open on the 1st November for you to link up any finished project made with at least one And Sew On block. So you might make a cushion cover with just one block, or you might make a full wall hanging. It’s completely up to you. Projects do need to be finished for the linky party though.
Of course there will be prizes from our lovely BoM sponsors. I’ll reveal more about those as we get closer. But so far sponsors are looking like these lovelies:
I will be bundling all the blocks together for sale (as well as leaving them listed individually). You can find any patterns you may have missed along the way in my Craftsy shop too.
So now the big decision… should there be another paper pieced BoM next year? Got any feedback on this one for me, seeing as it was my first BoM and all? Or maybe you have an idea for a BoM theme (presuming there’s interest in doing another one!)?. Would love to hear your thoughts – either in a comment or drop me an email kristyqp at gmail dot com.
Thanks for sewing along with me, BoMers! And sew on and sew forth
