This is the Birdie Stitches BOM. When I went there now, there was a new block posted. I really do enjoy these embroideries. As you can see, I am three behind now.
Next is Cobblestone Lane by This and That. There are two blocks to sew together and the quilt will be finished. I really think I'm going to like this when it is complete.
These next two quilts are from a Thangles Buck a Block BOM that I participated in last year. I liked both colorways and at a buck a month it was certainly affordable. Now that I look at the blocks on the floor I'm questioning one of them...I bet you can guess which one it is. It is the bottom one in the top picture. They are both put together the same way so either it was a late night or the pattern said to do it that way. I'm thinking I'm going to have to tear some threads.
I have three blocks to finish for both of them.
Last but not least is my Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery BOM. I like this one best of all. The colors are happy and the blocks are fun. As each month is a surprise, hopefully they won't disappoint. I 'm not worried. :)
As I look back through these I notice that I did see a finished quilt for all of them except for the last before I started. The Thangles BOMs did not have a color picture of the block each month, they were in black and white. The This and That patterns all had a color picture and were printed like a regular pattern you purchase. The FQS is a colored computer print out. Birdie Stitches is a drawing you print out each month and you pick the fabrics. Each are different in their own way, and I honestly have enjoyed working on them all. Do you enjoy BOMs or are you a start it and finish it type person? Do you like to chose your own fabrics, or would you rather not bother with that and use what is chosen for you?
It was fun to lay out the blocks and see what I have. I am also dreaming about how to quilt each one and actually getting to use these when they are finished. I usually like to chose my own fabrics, but my life has been very hectic, and I wanted to just work on my piecing skills. With most of the BOM kits all I had to do was cut and sew which turned out to be very relaxing, and each month I had finished something.
I'm linking today with Patchwork Times and BOMs Away. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching! --Kristen
