As I've read through quilty resolutions the past few days, I've noticed that BOMs pop up a lot. Some people want to try them. Some people want to reduce their participation in them! I've never done any bees or BOMs or anything like that, and I'm pretty ok with that decision--my schedule is unpredictable, and since sewing is a hobby and release for me, I don't think I'd do well feeling compelled to do something. If I'd like to not sew for a couple of weeks, I like to have the freedom to do that. So I wasn't sure these group sewing activities would be for me.
However, I saw Julie at Jolie Maxtin mention the Skill Builder BOM hosted by Alyssa at Pile O' Fabric. That piqued my interest--I have skills that need building, right? So I checked it out, and I think I'm going to do it!
I spent some time last night considering what my color scheme should be, and though this is still very much open for debate, I'm guessing that it will revolve around blues, greens, and purples. I'd like to do something unusual for the dominant solid background--so we will see what I think of for that!
Check it out! It's obvious that Alyssa has already put a ton of thought and work into this.
