I created this thread because it seems that there are at least 3 a couple of us doing this BOM and thought it would be good to have a place to post them as we finish. I sure would like to see everyones.

Here are my first 3 block. I hope others will post theres.

My mum is about to start this series too, I will see if I can print your pics and send her to see, she would like that. I know Golo was doing it and wasnt Anita doing it too? Great idea to have its own topic - oh and that reminds me Linda, I finished drawing up that new block, will sort out getting it scanned and to you Very Happy

i'm doing some of the Birdie blocks but not all - I've substituted others that I like better. But I haven't put my borders on yet - going to wait until all blocks are embroidered which may be awhile. Linda, did you use a charm pack for your borders?

Great Gimpy can't wait to see it!

AnnMarie, yes I'm using charms. I hope to have enough left over to make a piano key border. Post pics!

Anita, love your block. I'm on block four. Still trying to decide what to do when I get to block six.

Here are my first 6 blocks without borders -going to wait till I have them all done to decide what color border. I changed some of these a little to make them more colorful, etc.

Beautiful AnnMarie, just lovely so is yours Linda. Mum has been busy cutting all the background blocks, she is going to use pencils to colour hers in and make them brighter/richer.
