Oma's Blues: Part 6 is Launched

Well I didn't sleep through the alarm, so to speak, this month! Part 6 is launched today! Can you believe Oma's Blues has been around for six months now? My goodness, I feel like time is speeding up on me. I've been so busy lately that I realise Oma's Blues hasn't received as much love or attention as it deserves. It's hard to express a pattern with a digital image only- it's just so flat, isn't it?

So I've decided to make a start on Oma's Blues and do her proud because if I don't, at this rate, she'll get forgotten on my BOM list - just like my poor Forget Me Not BOM which is so beautiful but which I have also neglected. In fact, when people ask me what it looks like, I direct them to my Yahoo BOM Group because I don't have any photo's of my own quilt top! Terrible, I know.

No, I don't have the time. No, I have no idea how I'll fit it in, but I will make a start and just do what I can. Here is my blue basket of fabrics I'm looking forward to using in Oma's Blues.


Oma's Blues is my current free BOM. You can download all parts up until Part 6 right now for free in my Yahoo BOM Group. If you've missed the beginning, don't worry. You can still download missed parts for free. You're welcome to join in today.

  1. Ohhh what a lovely pile of blues you have pulled. I keep looking at the design of Omar Blue's that I have been down loading but then look at the pile of UFO's I have pulled to quilt or finish over the next couple of years LOL and I just dream about making it. Happy creating over the next couple of weeks. Glenda

    1. Thanks Glenda, sometimes I wonder what I'm thinking with all these patterns in differing stages of progress! Will I ever get time to make them all ??

  2. I am so looking forward to seeing your own take on your pattern. I have been snowed under with work and so have made very little progress. I keep promising my self that Oma's Blues is next,

  3. Ooh, those are some lovely blue fabrics in your basket! Do you have trouble with the metallic accents wearing off of the metallic fabrics, Esther? I used some prints that had metallic on them in a quilt for my son and the metallic has all faded away to brown after a few years, but that was a bed quilt that has been through the wash a few times.

    1. Hi Rebecca Grace, yes I have found this too and never use them in bed quilts. Most of my wall quilts are never washed so I don't have to worry about this when selecting fabrics. But when making baby quilts and teaching others to quilt, I always point out that the glitter, metallic or sheen prints always flake or fade away. It's annoying, isn't it?

  4. I'll be watching your progress. Blue quilts are the most beautiful, at least in my opinion.
