Homespun BOM

Like most women I'm terribly guilty of taking on lots and probably not doing the best I can as I get a little overwhelmed.  As I have alluded to previously, don't get me wrong, I love being busy, can't stand being idle (although I must admit at times lately it has been appealing...). However, so as to not get bored, I like to have a number of projects on the present the list is quite long but some of these are: 'Tis the Season SAL (see button), Vignette mystery block quilt, Vignette Issue 2 hexagon quilt (have the most amazing fabric but will show on another post) and amongst others, the Homespun Magazine BOM. Its the Homespun BOM fabric that I'm not too sure of at the moment. The actual quilt is being made using Wild Rose fabric by Moda, however, there is something about it that I'm not to keen on. As my friend Sam pointed out - it might be the mustard colours...So, I'm thinking of doing the quilt in the Oasis 3 sisters fabric. I just love it - can't get it out of my head.

Should I, shouldn't I?

Of course you should!! But, being a compulsive starter, I'm probably not the best person to give advice on this topic. LOL
Oasis is beautiful though, and would look great for My Town.

I agree that Oasis would look great for the Homespun BOM ... I did Breast of Friends ... the first Homespun BOM in 'Aviary', it is beautiful and fresh and about 2 blocks from being finished also :-)
Happy stitching, P

As you can see I'm using my scraps to do "My Town" and so I think you can use whatever fabric you want. I also have lots on the go so as to not get bored!
