BOM and BOW

I am WAY behind on my Road Trip Quilt Along Block of the Month! I'm not sure what happened, but I plan to catch up. This is Minnesota Star. Another paper pieced pattern and a little wonky..... again... Oh well, I am considering this QAL a skill builder. If I made several of the same block I could get it right after a while. But, making only one, with limited time available... what you see is what you get!



This is the Bloggers Block of the Month for July. So I just have to do the August block before the September one comes out on the 25th. Not too far behind on this one.



I cleaned up my sewing room yesterday. It was a sight! Maybe having a more organized space will help motivate me to get more sewing done.

Both blocks look fine to me. I especially like the colors in the BOW block.

Idon't see anything wrong with the paper pieced one. I've never tried paper piecing, but want to get my hands on an old phone book to try a string block. (Bonnie from Quiltville recommends phone book paper...LOL) And I still love your Christmas fabric...that is going to be one pretty quilt!
