    I have been trying to make the BOM quilt Sentimental Journey at Block Central. It started out great but then the monthly posting of the instructions for the month's block were later and later. Now there has not been a posting since the Aug one! There had been no notice on the site that there would be a delay or if there would be any more postings.
    Is anyone else trying to do this quilt? Would it be wrong to down load the coloring page and the color mock up of what the finished quilt was to look like and figure out the remaining blocks ourselves? Is anyone out there good at that sort of thing?

    Did you try to send her an email I see they have an address I see that they have stopped adding the blocks since August Because you already havemoney and time invested if you did not get an answer to your email I would down load the color page and mock up to finish

    I don't see why not you should be fine and there is enough here with quilt programs that might be able to help. Jade

    Yes I have sent emails and posted a query. No response of any kind from the site. Someone who I guess was a friend of the author of the site and read the query sent a reply that she was sure the author would post, but that was a couple months back and was concerning the Aug delay or perhaps one before that. .. I was hoping someone out there with more experience than I was making this quilt and could help figuring out how to do the remaining blocks. For example I have figured out HOW the Sept one is put together but the nitty gritty of size escapes me. That is how big the rectangles are 2 by 4 1/2 inches or what.

    I've been downloading the patterns as well. Haven't started any of them yet though. Guess I was lucky?

    I had bought the fabric, some of which was hard to get an i paid a little extra for so of it. I had made a few of the blocks when the problems started and I stop making them for a time waiting to see what would happen. Now the problem is what to do . I have some blocks made and all the fabric I need. Do I just throw the material into my stash and the blocks into some scrappy, or do I continue on and try to make it? I decided I will try to make it. So I will make the other blocks up to the Aug one and then try to figure out how to do the others. I really like the look of the quilt and hate not finish it
    So are you lucky? Yes, if you did not invest time and money into making it and have your mind and heart set on making it an then to be left in limbo.

    I share your frustration! My quilting group is making the Sentimental Journey quilt too and have been waiting and waiting for the blocks. We've bought the fabric and made the posted blocks. Two of us emailed the site, but have not gotten a response. If you come up with the answer for the remaining blocks, please let me know.

    Hi, I too am making the dissapearing BOM quilt. When I found your post and saw that others were in the same predicament, I sat down a figured out the "recipe" for the remaining quilt blocks.

    Here is Septmember:
    (note: I am using the work "block" to refer to the 4 1/2 inch blocks, of which 9 are assembled for each month's Big Block.)

    The four corner blocks each consist of a 2.5" x 4.5" cream rectangle joined to the same size brown rectangle.

    The center blocks consist of a 3 3/8" pink square joined to 4 red triangles. The 4 triangles are made by a diagonal cut of two 2 7/8" squares.

    The 4 remaining blocks require:
    4 cream rectangles 2.5x4.5" each
    4 brown check triangles made by two diagonal cuts of a 5 1/4" square
    8 red triangles made by 1 diagonal cut through each of four 2 7/8" squares.

    October:
    Corner blocks (see april for a picture, it is the same pattern)
    8 cream squares, 2.5" each
    4 cream triangles made by 1 diagonal cut in each of two 2 7/8" squares
    4 red triangles made from 1 diagonal cut in each of two 2 7/8" squares
    8 brown triangles made from 1 diagonal cut in each of four 2 7/8" squares

    Center block:
    1 pink 3 3/8 square
    4 brown triangles made from 1 diagonal cut in each of two 2 7/8" squares.

    Remaining 4 blocks:
    four 3 3/8 red squares
    8 cream triangles made from 1 diagonal cut in each of four 2 7/8" squares
    8 brown triangles made from 1 diagonal cut in each of four 2 7/8" squares

    November (see Feb block, it is very similar:
    Corner blocks:
    4 cream triangles made from 1 diagonal cut in each of two 4 7/8" square
    2 red triangles made from 1 diagonal cut of a 4 7/8" square
    2 brown triangles made from a diagonal cut of a 4 7/8" square

    Center block:
    1 brown check 3 3/8" square
    4 cream triangles made from a diagonal cut in each of two 2 7/8" squares

    remaining 4 blocks:
    2 brown triangles made from a diagonal cut of a 4 7/8" square
    2 red triangles made from a diagonal cut of a 4 7/8" square
    2 brown triangles made from TWO diagonal cuts of a 5 1/4 " square ( this will make 4 triangles, you will only use two)
    2 red triangles made from TWO diagonal cuts of a 5 1/4 " square ( this will make 4 triangles, you will only use two)
    4 cream triangles made from two diagonal cuts of a 5 1/4" square

    December:
    4 corner blocks:
    4 cream triangles made from a diagonal cut of two 4 7/8" squares
    4 red triangles made from a diagonal cut of two 4 7/8" squares

    Center block:
    1 brown check 3 3/8" square
    4 cream triangles made from 1 diagonal cut in each of two 2 7/8" squares

    remaining 4 blocks:
    4 cream 3 3/8" squares
    16 brown triangles made from a single diagonal cut in each of eight 2 7/8" squares


    Corner pieced blocks for border (6 1/2" squares)
    4 brown and cream 6.5" blocks:
    4 cream 2.5" squares
    16 cream triangles made from one diagonal cut of eight 2 7/8" squares
    16 brown triangles made from one diagonal cut of eight 2 7/8" squares

    4 brown check and cream 6.5" blocks:
    4 cream 2.5" squares
    16 cream triangles made from one diagonal cut of eight 2 7/8" squares
    16 brown check triangles made from one diagonal cut of eight 2 7/8" squares

    I hope this is intelligable! Quilters love a challenge!

    Thank you Sarquilter!
    I've been working on them too and agree with what you figured out. I am going to do the blocks that way. Even if we are wrong this is our quilts so we should be able to make it our way.
    Must say though I am still curious as to what has happened at that site and to the site owner.
