ARE YOU READY???

For the big finish???
for my OMG project for January!!
Here we are in all our glory!!!
Yep my goal was to finish this quilt--Snowbound--

 I started this quilt back in 2009 in a bom of the month club--
from Bunny Hill--
I believe I kept up with the blocks each month--
but then it was a few years later before I got them into a top form--
and I hung onto the border fabric all that time--
it is a Bunny Hill fabric and has the cutest little houses on it-
Can you see them???
I added up some time I have in this quilt--
*****hand quilting hours--19 hours (all during the month of Jan 2018)
*****sewing snowflakes to the upper area of each block--2 1/2 hours
****Binding--2 1/2 hours
**** sewing on all the decorative buttons--2 hours--
** and then there was all the applique of each block
**the sewing the top together time
***and the basting of the batting, backing, and top--
so I figure I have at least 50 hours of work in this quilt--
So now on to the next hand quilting project---
It is  hanging in on my living room wall right now!!!

And hanging in the little foyer now I have this one--
This one is from Hatched and Patched and was also a bom project!

  8. Love them!! Superb UFO finish here, fun border for them. I remember watching this BOM when she was putting it out and wanting to do it, but I was swamped and didn't. This year I am being crazy and not shying away from the 2 BOMs that are tugging at me. Inspiring to see yours finished. :)
