    I would lean toward small spirals, or simple fills like curlicues. Love your smaller size.

    I finished my Homeward Bound top all in the last month because I want to get going on the next BOM. It’s actually 50% smaller,except for the center house, because I wanted to use my small scraps. I have stitched in the ditch around all of the appliqué. It needs more quilting in the background to flatten it. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to free motion on it?

    It took me a little bitty while to finish the quilting and binding, but here she is! I had a lot of fun with ruler work and free motion quilting.

    That turned out really nice! I like the 4 petal flower in place of the heart. Good luck on the competition! Keep us informed

    This is my BMO, Homeward Bound. I enjoyed making this quilt and even after quilting for fifty years I learned from Sarah Fielke. However, I needed to make my quilt larger since our fair requires a 324 inch perimeter to qualify for Grand Champion. If you win Grand Champion you proceed to a regional competition and a win there sends your quilt to a Provincial competition. (I live in Ontario, Canada). My quilt is now 89 x89. The biggest challenge was the last border. I had to call on my granddaughter with a math degree to assist me.
    I really think Sarah’s pattern is prize worthy. Here’s hoping.

    Jo Anne, Did you just echo stitch around applique and stitch in the ditch on pieced units? Also
    did you do it on a domestic machine? I have been dragging my feet on completing the outside
    borders. Need to just get it done. HelenW

    My BOM 2023 is complete! I finished machine quilting it and adding binding this week. Yay! I’m going to hang it over the railing of our loft above the family room. A very fun project!

    Helen,
    Thank you so much for these suggestions. You helped me immensely months ago by suggesting a narrow border to bring the center block up to the correct size when I hadn't realized how much machine appliqué (on untreated fabric) would shrink the fabric. I might repeat the i/4 inch pink dot border around the edge. I love the narrow borders in orange you have created Thank you.

    It is finally done. I used the TQS kit to make it, but used the background confetti to make the eyes of the birds, so they are a little bug-eyed. LOL. I learned a lot doing this quilt and it sharpened my quilting skills esp since I had not done applique like this before.
