But she called the next morning, and told me that the next block was due to go out in June. June? Why the wait? She stated that they just got in the rest of the fabric and wanted to get the kits cut up. I said that I wasn't too happy about stringing this out any more than it has already had been, and really didn't want to wait that long agin. She then said that they sent out the sixth block at no charge as a way of apologizing for the mess up of this BOM. I stated that I had been charged for the sixth block. Then out of the blue, she asked if I would like to receive the rest of the blocks and the setting block all at once. She should not charge me for block 7, and charge me for the remaining 5 blocks and send them out the next day. I jumped on that offer so fast, as I wanted to get the remaining blocks now and know that I would be getting all the rest of the BOM without stringing it out any more than it has been so far.
So, I am back on track with this BOM, Vintage Sampler, and couldn't be happier.
Here is block 6:
It is really interesting how laying out a block just a little different, you get a completely different block. This was the way I sewed the first block of two and it wasn't correct, so I had to take it apart and put it together the right way.
This is the right way, block 2.
As we are approaching the finish line of this quilt, it is beginning to require adding the sashing and building blocks to the main blocks.
Building blocks and sashing building for future blocks.
This is a peek at block 7, it has three appliqué blocks and several joining of sashing and building blocks. This block was one of the main reasons I chose to do this BOM. My name is pronounced like the bird Wren with a hard E on the end. Something like Rennie, Renny, (try rhyming with Jennie, or Jenny, only with a R) Anyways, wren like birds alway attract me, and this quilt is no exception. I also liked the shirting fabric that is being used as the background.
I am feeling very relieved, having all the rest of the BOM blocks and knowing I can get this one done sooner than later.
