I love being able to see my Amitié BOM quilt progressing; I took this during the torrential rain this afternoon…

… and now I only have 2 more leaves to appliqué.

I am hoping that over the weekend I will be able to top those stalks with flower heads!  I have swapped out the very curvy flowers from the pattern; check instagram for amitiemysteybom2014 to get an idea, and will be using the, what I call, double Jen Kingwell flower ovals, which I can cope with!  After the hash-up I made with my claw-like centre leaves, I won't be making the same mistake again!

It did amuse me when I did all that cutting on Wednesday, how, when the BOM began, I was picking the exact fabric as shown in the monthly photo guide, too scared to deviate, but now… what the heck!  Confident?  Over-confident?  Time will tell.

So have a great weekend everyone; I am hoping for a mix of sunshine and showers sewing xxx
