    Over a year ago a BOM project was being offered by my LQS. It is a queen size quilt of twelve 12" blocks, border, and binding fabric to complete the quilt top.
    The price for this top is $325. ( $25. fee for joining and $25. monthy for 12 months ). The backing fabric and batting would be an additional cost.

    Is it just me or does this sound expensive. A 12" block does not require a lot of yardage. I understand that it also includes the pattern and the fabric has been cut for each month's kit, but still :?: :?: :?:

    I value your opinions on this subject.

    One of the LQS here charges 7.50 a month anf I though that was expensive.I don't know that anything was already cut for each block though. It seems really expensive to me.

    Yes, I think it is expensive too. I only did a BOM one time and I decided that I will not ever do it again. I would rather choose my own fabrics and work at my own pace.

    That sounds expensive to me. I have been searching online for free quilt blocks and just going to do that and will make it scrappy.

    I jointed one at Fat Quarter Shop and just love it. I can look forward to something coming in the mail every month. The fabric is something i dont really have access to and it is not cut out for you, you still have to cut the pieces and they give you instructions with every block. I am doing this for me not for a gift and when I am finished I will have something nice for my bed. You can still do it at your own pace but you dont have to pick the fabrics and that is a big help to me. I will do it again if I find a sampler that I like.

    That is way out of my price range...I would rather buy a pattern and pick out my own fabrics :D:D:D I could buy a lot of luscious batiks for that price :wink:

    I think I would have to find a new quilt shop, $25 a month is way over the top. (No pun intended) You could buy a book of blocks for about $25 and make all of the blocks. Yes you would have to buy fabric, but a fat quarter bundle or two of coordinating fabrics to make your blocks and them some sashing fabric and you are on your way. Certainly not $325!

    That seems like a lot of money. I would rather spend it on my own choice of fabrics.

    There are many free BOM on line if you want to choose your own fabrics and cut them.

    Check out: Just one of many, google "free BOM quilts"
