It's the BOM!

Here's a pic of my progress on the Amitie BOM, the Circle Game, so far.  I started off machine piecing it then moved to hand piecing because some of those curves just work better hand pieced.  But I'm now at the sad and sorry point of having to re-design the blocks for this month because my right arm has gone on strike.  It did the exact same thing two years ago and I need to get back to the physio and get it sorted.  In the meantime, no hand pieced curves for me :-(

  3. These are gorgeous! Bummer about the arm. For me it is the knee, which makes basting a pain (literally)....who knew quilting was such a physical endeavour? ;)

  5. Wowza, these are seriously great blocks, Lynne -

    I'm so sorry your arm isn't playing nice - I totally understand as I get claw hand at totally random and mostly inconvenient times.

    Hope you get it sorted soon so that you can go back to some really talented curved piecing :)

  10. They look wonderful Lynne, I do hope your arm feels better soon. I had to give sewing a rest this weekend as I was having pain in mine, luckily it's feeling better now so I'm going to try again inbetween playing with J as he's off school. I hope you manage to get a good rest.

  11. you're doing great! I get carpal tunnel when I do hand work (and when I'm in the third trimester)... it's no fun! It's actually why I do most of my bindings by machine, and why embroidery is sort of out of the question in large amounts. I feel your pain! Get better!

    The blocks are amazing. really.

  22. Sorry your arm is playing up on you - I've just got needle holes on the top of fingers from NTA this weekend, but it's nothing that a bit of leather and double sided tape won't fix, minimal expense there, unlike you unfortunately.
    Your BOM blocks are just stunning - great job Lynne - I mush check out the link (for curiosity only)
