Home is Where the Heart Is BOM progress

OK so I actually do make quilts! I joined a BOM program at my local quilt shop earlier this year and although this should have been a 12-month program, it got condensed down to about 9 months so this is as close to giving birth as I'll ever get - LOL -- OK that was probably bad comedy but oh well -- So we are just about finished with the quilt tops - we have until December 15th to complete them the tops so we can have a chance at winning a Bernina sewing machine! I have my center done - that was a monthly progress you see on the bed. I have to add the log cabin blocks and the border this week and I'll be done with the top. YEAH!!! I bought my background fabric and some extra fabric from the line to make a couple pillow cases or shams, not sure which i'll make. This is a bit more country than I usually would like but it was a great exercise for a beginning quilter like me!
