Aurifil BOM

The Aurifil BOM is a monthly project that has captured my attention this year and each block has been fun to sew. There is so much happening on the Aurifil blog that the BOM post is sometimes difficult to find, but you will enjoy reading all the other interesting things they have posted, including a fabric giveaway and a new quilt along.
The June block is called Modern Delft and included options for embroidery. While I really enjoy embroidery, I don't think having one block will fit in with all the other pieced blocks. I decided to fussy cut some printed fabric to fit in the corner blocks and a pinwheel in the middle.
You can see more versions of this block over at Pat Sloan's blog, and it looks like everyone else has done the same thing as I have done in terms of not including the embroidery.

The 2016 BOM is half over now, and here are my 6 blocks together on the design wall. It's going to be a very interesting quilt and I look forward to the other 6 blocks we will be sewing as the year progresses.
Are you sewing along with the Aurifil BOM this year?

Very nice! Your having much more success than when I tried a monochromatic quilt a few years back. Maybe I'll have to try again!

Your fussy-cut corners work for me.
I am proud to say that almost halfway through the year I have joined absolutely NO SALs. That was my goal, but it has been for several years and I have always caved.
There is a smug satisfaction in seeing a SAL I love and just walking away. Sick, huh? *LOL*

These look great Kathy - and I think you made the right decision about the embroidery, it seems a bit odd to just have the one block. And, you've already got a fab embroidery project on the go! The red and creams feel very festive to me...and you've only got six months to go, coincidence?!

Oh my goodness, there are so many fun BOM's and QAL's out there! How do you not want to get involved in all of them? I really like that block with the white graduated squares.

This is a lovely project, I am inspired to make a red quilt and I am enjoying watching your quilt progress.

It's going to be a very pretty quilt. The reds are gorgeous.
