2013 BOM

I guess it's about time I show our 2013 BOM from our LQS.  Again, this year we have the option to make the pieced blocks in 2 different colorways.  This is the pink version.

Here is the autumn colorway.  The setting is a Circle of Nine with appliqued leaves.  Will make a beautiful Fall quilt.

The applique "quilt" is not a true quilt this year.  We are making 3 small wall hangings.  This is the first one.  We have already made the flowers, watermelon and now are making the ladybugs in March.  I am still debating on whether I can save all my blocks and make it into a Season quilt at the end of the year.  I will have to see what the next quarter's blocks look like before I decide.

Along with how to make the blocks each month, we are given more ideas on how to add to our wall hanging.  Here are some placemats, table runner and dish cloth.

Our BOM's are a bargain compared to what I hear about other ones around the country.  We only have to pay for our first month's block ($10) and then if we bring it back finished the following month, the next pattern is FREE!  It makes being home on each second Saturday of each month a must!  If we do miss a month, we only have to pay $7 for the pattern/fabric.  We all try really hard to make our quilts be only $10!

I have a new blog post on if you are interested in seeing our quilt guild's happenings this month.  We didn't have many show and tells but it has been fun getting to know some new women in the valley.
