BOM 2014

I had so much fun organizing last years block of the month club....that I decided to do it again! Wanting to be able to include all quilting levels I have decided it will be based on 2 1/2' squares and strips. This quilt will consist of 10 blocks, sections or strips, one a month. There is no paper piecing in this quilt, but there will be a little bit of machine applique and a tiny little bit of embroidery.  I will have a tutorial with the pattern included each month.  The monthly patterns will be FREE during the month that they are announced, after that they will be available for a small fee. In November we will piece the sections together and December will be saved for putting on borders and finishing touches.

Now here is the part that drives me crazy, in a fun way! Choosing fabrics..... everyone has their favorites.... have fun choosing fabrics!  But I will tell you, tone on tone fabrics will be best in this quilt.  You will be creating a 'scene' in this quilt, it's super duper cute! The 'Logo' on the top of the post is a huge clue! I will be using... fabric from Studio E's Silly Chilly Snowmates, Tried and True and Jingle All The Way from Bernatex, Hoffman Bali Handpaints, and bits and pieces from my fabric stash...

Finished size will be 70" x 84" (Twin Size)
Yardage.... this is an estimate with extra added in...

4 yards background (I am splitting this up between two blues)
1 yard white/cream
1/4 yard gold
1/4 yard dark green
fat quarter of 2 different medium greens
1/4 yard red
1/3 yard black or dark gray
fat quarter medium gray
fat quarter brown
fat quarter orange
fat eighth yellow
heat n bond
dark brown or black thread for machine applique
black DMC thread or pearl cotton
border #1- 1 yard
border #2- 1 1/2 yards
backing - 6 yards
binding - 3/4 yards for 2 1/2" binding

  2. I am so excited to join you for this BOM quilt. I love tone on tone fabrics. I was late to the party in 2013, so I can't wait to start in January with you. Hope you had a beautiful Christmas and may 2014 be filled with many blessings.

  11. This is my first visit to your site and the first thing I noticed was your top logo - so cute. I think I may have to jump in on this quilt, even though applique isn't my thing.

  16. It looks like it's going to be a winter themed quilt. Am I thinking correctly? Or would that give to much away if you answer that?

  22. I'm definitely going to collect the clues. But is the fabric needed the only thing for January or did I miss something?
    Thanks, Debbie

  25. Looks like lots of fun, are there cutting directions somewhere on the site or do we just use directions under the photos, and the nose pattern does not want to download - do I need a Google account to get it ? First time to your site.

  33. I started on COPD Herbal treatment from Ultimate Life Clinic, the treatment worked incredibly for my lungs condition. I used the herbal treatment for almost 4 months, it reversed my COPD. My severe shortness of breath, dry cough, chest tightness gradually disappeared. Reach Ultimate Life Clinic via their website www.ultimatelifeclinic.com . I can breath much better and It feels comfortable!
