Progress is being made…seven more blocks prepped and ready for stitching…
These blocks are small…only 4 1/2” which means when they are all sewn together they will be only 4”! All together now….”Ahhhhhh…”
Only TWO MORE blocks to go!
Now I DO love these wee blocks (how could I not!) BUT at what cost?…
When I ordered this kit I thought the cost was ‘reasonable’…BUT when I see how small the quilt is going to be…I mean it’s REALLY small… and when I see what’s in each little bag…wee itty bitty small scraps of wool…some smaller than the scraps that you find in my garbage can! You check out the price…do you think it’s worth it? Also notice if you don’t buy the pattern with the kit they only take off $5…yet the cost of the pattern is $20! NOT good Math…and not good customer service! I know that this BOM was the ‘FREE’ pattern that came with Primitive Gatherings main 2013 Summer BOM …so I guess this is their way of saying you won’t get ripped off if you order the main BOM! And then you won’t have to pay the $20 for a pattern that should be a lot less! And you won’t have to pay the $75 for wee itty bitty pieces of wool. All you have to pay is the $500 + postage for the total cost of the main BOM…sounds like a sweet deal to me…NOT!
BUT it is a sweet pattern…and it is going to be a cute mat…if only I could lose that ‘ripped off feeling’…the BLOOM has definitely left ‘Summer Blooms’!
Geeze it sounds like I got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning!! :O}
Have a super Saturday and happy stitching!~P
