Recognize these?

 If you have ever participated in a BOM from Homestead Hearth I am sure you recognize these little beige and red plaid bags.  For a while there I was getting several of these each month, it was more like a BOW.  I still have several of these that I haven't completed.  After finally finishing my string pieced blocks I decided to find something completely different to work on.

I pulled out a box labeled Halloween 1904, I found a receipt in one of the bags dated from 2010.  I think it is time that I finished this one, it probably won't be finished for Halloween at least not this year, but I will have a head start on next year.  I had to search through all of my boxes to make sure that I had all of the BOM bags.  I finally found all of them and have started the first two blocks.

Out of my box

I saw this quilt pattern in a magazine about three years ago and for some reason it talked to me!  I was surprised because  most of the quilts that I am attracted to are much more traditional.  This quilt is also paper pieced which I have done before but not to this extent.  There are nine blocks and I can't even get them laid out in my sewing room until I move some things around.  The blocks are huge, about 30 inches square.  I started this quilt shortly after finding the pattern, three years ago, today I finished the last block, now to get the rest of the paper off of the back and get the blocks sewn together.  I have three of the  blocks together, I couldn't wait wanted to see how they were going to look.
