WOW: Oma's Blues Beauty!

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
I think time is speeding by at the best of times, but in the last month, I haven't had a real sense of time at all, so I'm more than a little surprised to realize it's now Wednesday again. I'm doing exactly what I was this time last week -playing with my pattern folios, playing with fabric and colour. So this week I thought I would share someone else's WIP. This is the centre block from my BOM Oma's Blues - isn't it incredible? I made my own in Delft inspired blues but several members over in my Oma's Blues Group are going for colour..and the results are stunning. Just like this block. I'm in love with these hues, they're gorgeous. And of course, I love seeing my quilts made every which way and in all different colours.

This beauty is being created by Giuseppina Alaimo who has kindly allowed me to show off her block here on my blog. Beautiful!!

My quilt Oma's Blues is currently being offered for free over in my Oma's Blues Group, so if you'd like to make this BOM for free, you can! All past blocks are available and the BOM will be free until it's finished in November this year.

What's Your WOW?

  5. Definitely a block with a lot of "wow" factor. I've not yet learned to like doing applique, but I do admire those who do.
