I'm finally starting on the Southern Gentleman BOM at Fat Cat Patterns. It took several hours to trace, cut out and fuse the pieces and the hard part isn't even started yet! I don't have quite the right color of thread for the machine applique but I believe that there are matches to this fabric in a thread set I just ordered at Connecting Threads.
There are already 6 blocks published for this BOM but I have 6 months to get caught up. ;-)
