    I've had an interesting couple of days. I found this BOM from 2009 online - from Harmony Quilts in Lancefield, Victoria, Australia. It looked like something I'd like to do. I've downloaded and printed all the blocks. I've completed 8 of them so far. But what I found while doing them was that the cutting instructions on at least 3 so far were either wrong, resulting in wasted fabric and time, or incomplete - where I had to get out the graph paper and calculator to figure out what to cut. In doing a google search for this quilt, I have found ZERO pictures of a completed one. ZERO. And ZERO pictures of completed blocks other than one person's block 1. She never posted any others. Now that's odd.

    I'm doing mine scrappy-style, and was just looking for someone else who was doing this. It's just strange that I can't find any anywhere. So if anyone's done this, I'd love to chat!

    Did you go back to the website and check to see if they had made any corrections? Some sites have them in a separate place. :D

    I've done that, plus I emailed them - no response. I'll be able to figure it out - I just was wondering if anyone in the blogging/webshots/etc. world had done it so I could see pics, or if anyone who had done it wanted to chat about the experience. It's just really weird to me that there are ZERO photos of this on the internet.

    Hi,

    I Googled this BOM and found all the months block instructions plus the final assembly instructions, but of course they aren't in fabric, so to speak. All are PDF downloads. You can see it here:

    http://www.bomquilts.com/proddetail.php?prod=492009-14

    I hope this helps.

    ETA: Oops, sorry. I realize now that this is available on their site, too.

    Yes, this is what I already had; the BOM site links back to the Harmony Quilts site. Thanks anyway!

    That must be really frustrating! Maybe you could cut each block out of paper first just to see if it's going to work.

    I guess I didn't explain myself very well. I wasn't looking for help (but thanks for the offers!) - I figured it all out. I was just looking for anyone who had done it since I thought it strange that I found no one on the internet in the whole world who had done it. I also wanted to discuss with anyone who had done it their experience with all the errors in cutting instructions and assembly directions. It was quite full of errors.

    I finished the top today; I need to add borders but I'll take a pic soon and post it. It looks really nice, I think. I might donate it or find a friend who wants it.

    Harmony Village 2009 BOM

    I know that this is a very old thread. I'm working on the Harmony Village 2009 BOM and would like to chat with you about how yours turned out if you're still around! I had similar problems, received an email from the Australian web site.. put the project away for a couple years and just got going on it again. Only this time the directions are making sense and the blocks are coming out as they should.

    Well, let me know if you want to talk about this quilt. It's hard to find!
