Whew! I barely got my October blocks finished in time. With leading this group, I feel very motivated to stay current. (Just a personal goal)
I decided to start laying out the blocks on my design wall that have been finished so far.
We only have one more Irish Chain and the inside will be complete.
Are you as antsy as I am to start putting things together?
You guys have been awesome. I love seeing your posts and how Star Crazy is turning out in different fabrics, and from locations all over the world.

Finally here it is the end of October and I have the BOM finished for this month. I hadsuch trouble with the Irish Chain blocks this month. I finally gave up with the sewing machine today and sat and relaxed and did the last two blocks by hand!! they turned out perfect. What a difference a method makes!!
I know to a lot of you hand piecing is not relaxing but to me and others it is. I can be so much more accurate when hand piecing than with a machine for some reason. I think with the machine I do not control it enough – go too fast, too slow, I am distracted and don’t pay close enough attention to the quarter inch foot? I don’t know but I do know that I am not a precision piecer with the machine and I have never felt totally comfortable with a sewing machine whereas I have always been comfortable with hand work. It just goes slow!
The blocks this month:

ps. I think I saw the 2011 BOM on Sue's blog. And that is obviously not me writing there under the pic. :)

Btw....that goopy piece of duct tape up there on the edge of the cutting mat is my way to holding together two big mats on that one side of my work table. By this time, I think we are all friends enough to see the dark side of our work rooms. *L*
