    I find that gals will often complain about fabric being 9 or 10 dollars a yard; but will commit to a BOM that ends up costing around $300. You can buy alot of fabric at full price for that amount of money!!!

    I am in agreement that $25 a mo or more is too expensive for me. I have done only 1 and that was the Oklahoma Centennial
    quilt and I just had to have it. I ended up making 3 blocks ea month so I had a quilt for ea of my children. Of course I had to buy my own fabrics for the extra two but I found much of the same fabric on line and some fabric I like better than the shops selection. By making 3 quilts at once I didn't think it was to high.

    It sounds WAY expensive. I just got back from one of my lqs and thought $185 was too much. This included the fabric, patterns and classes for 12 appliqued blocks. I am still considering it however.

    I haven't checkout out BOM's lately at our quilt shops but I used to participate at several different shops. Here's the way they worked:
    sign up and attend at appointed time, usually before the shop opens.
    The first block costs $10, you get pattern and fabric to make it. If you bring your completed block the next month and you'll get the next block free. But if you miss that day you have to pay another $10 to get the next block. I think I have 3 sets in my UFO pile. The blocks are done - I just have to put them together.

    I have never had the desire to do a BOM, but I can see why lots of quilters enjoy them. As well as having a set task, there are the personal interactions and the fact it does support LQS. It's a bit structured for my way of working, does seem a bit expensive and I just can't see myself getting into it.

    Hi, there are a lot of quilt sites that offer really nice quilts as a block of the month. You get one each month and they are free.

    It seems expensive to me, but Ive never really done one, so I cant compare. I would check out the free ones too, see if you can find something simalar?
