    Hi Everyone,
    I know most of you are waiting to see the new BOM pattern for January, so I won't keep you any longer!! It's called Sunflower. I picked this one hoping to brighten everyone's January days!!
    Have fun & don't forget to post your finished block so we can all see them.

    http://www.bluemountainquiltersguild.../Sunflower.pdf (due to recent changes at the referenced website, this link may not work for everyone)

    Have Fun,
    Cheryl
    :D :D :D

    ************ Moderator's Note************
    I found the block elsewhere. The block is included in Maggie Malone's book, "5,500 Quilt Block Designs". It's #448, on page 40.

    Very basic instructions can be found at the Quilter's Newsletter website. Go to this page, scroll down a bit until you see the image, and click on the word "Sunflower".

    http://www.quiltersnewsletter.com/ar...tacular_Blocks

    they provide a piecing diagram along with both templates and rotary cutting dimensions. the rotary cutting are in small print, with diagrams, inside the templates.

    if you set page scaling to "none" before your print from adobe acrobat reader, the templates print at the correct size for a 12" block (12-1/2" unfinished).

    if you cannot open the instructions, it means you don't have a recent enough version of adobe acrobat reader installed on your computer. to solve that problem for free, just go to http://www.adobe.com and click on "get adobe reader". follow the extremely easy instructions for installation.

    Oh thank you Cheryl. I thought it would be a way to keep me focused on checking in, having a little fun, and keeping up with people. I seem to drift in and out of the forum if im not focused lol. Thanks so much Cheryl, this will be fun :)

    Beautiful and sunny block. Love it. I'm going to tag along with the BOM and just maybe I'll have a quilt done by the end of the year. Thanks for picking out a neat pattern.

    the block seems to have disappeared from that website.

    go back to the top of the topic for a new link.

    Thank you very much for fixing the site for everyone. Off to the fabric store at 10 to try a couple ideas.. of course if I like them both that could mean two quilts .. one for me, one for Christmas.. hey.. not a bad idea. I can make two blocks a month. Phew!

    I like this block. Am on my way to my LQS as there is a sale today - will look for some bright and cheery fabric. I tend towards blue and yellows.

    Hi - Love the block and would like to join in this BOM with making the blocks. Does the BOM link for everyone making this always appear on the daily page please Cheryl? I have not done one of these before. Your block is lovely, by the way.

    Wings,
    I am glad you like my January block. We are so glad to have you join us this year. If you can't find this link of the main page go to recent topics & click on forum. Then look for the Block of the month topic. After clicking on this thread, scan down the page looking for the 2010 BOM heading for each month. They will be posted the first day of each month, of the year. I hope this answers your question. If not feel free to ask again!!
    :D :D :D :D

    Thanks Cheryl - understand now! Looks like a lot of fun. Also a way to use up some of my stash. Have done a BOM with a quilt shop by mail here but it is a tad lonely on your own and you know the outcome before you begin, where this way it is full of surprises each month. Woohoo.:)

    Count me in for this BOM. I've only done one BOM that involved creating your own machine embroidery design for each block. I loved doing it as each month was a surprise. I have already set my annual goal to complete a UFO each month and make a quilt for SIL; I may be creating another UFO but will have fun doing so.

    I am also looking forward to this. I have never done a BOM like this. I appreciate that the link is a pbdf file as I can open those. Any that are Word doc I can't open. Thanks again@!

    Nevermind- I just found the directions on Bluemountain site. Looks like a good candidate for the doll quilt swap.

    I'm sorting my stash, New Year's Res, organize my bins back into their proper colors. I found a neat pansy piece for the middle block of BOM. I'm sure I'll find the rest of the needed colors for this block. This is so neat as I've never taken part in BOM's before.

    Count me in on this block of the month! I'm so excited! My problem is I want to do everything (Dear Jane) etc.etc. But I usually don't do anything. I think my friend, Judy, will want to do this with me (she's gone right now). We usually get together one day a week to work on some kind of project we are both doing. I'm going to fine fabric in my stash for this project!

    Ladies!! :D
    We are so excited to have so many of you start this project with us. It's going to be so much fun. Remember just because the block is called Sunflower, you don't have to use sunflower fabric. You can use your imagination & come up with your own color combination. After all, this quilt will be for yourself, that is unless you decide to give it away for a gift. So, let's continue having fun & sharing what we come up with!!
    Thanks again for joining!!
    :D :D :D :D

    I think I will be doing this BOM because it looks like it could be easy enough for me to do, and being my first BOM to ever do that is pretty important. Now to just find a color to go with....

    Sulabug,
    I tried opening the link to Blue Mtn. and had no success. So I went to Quilted Newsletter and same thing happened.
    I can't figure out what is wrong on my end,. Anybody have any ideas? I already made sure Adobe is in properly and also pop-up blockers s ok. What am I missing?

    Guess DH will have to check it ot in the morning.

    I am so sorry!! Did you try the link that Patrice put in, as an update? If you can get on the Blue Mountain site, it is the January BOM for 2008. Do keep us posted.
