    1 May 2012 Calender BOM Pattern & Discussion

    Hi all,

    This is Anael and I have the honor of picking the May pattern for the 2012 Calender BOM! Though it has been quite cold flowers are blooming here too. I picked the block Oh Susannah because my mom had her birthday in May, she loved flowers and she loved to sing.

    You can find the pattern here:
    http://www.quilterscache.com/O/OhSusannahBlock.html

    As you can see in the picture I altered the center of the block a bit. The color 1 triangles (which in my block are black instead of blue) are a bit smaller to make the block look more like a flower.
    I hope you all like the block. It's an easy one (I think) and I hope you will have fun making it.

    Here's the picture:

    Thanks, Anael, it is perfect! I was saving my lilacs fq for the May block, they are my favorite flowers and I just knew whatever the block pattern was, I had to use that fabric - it will be perfect! I especially love that you made the center smaller - what size did you do, do you recall? I'm thinking I would like to do the same with mine, so that the lilacs really stand out. It will be a lot of fun making this one!

    Thank you, Anael! I have never made the Oh, Susannah block before. Looking forward to finding just the right fabrics!

    May Block

    I don't know why I do my block right away, because I have to wait an entire month for the next block. I'm working on the Calendar quilt for my DGD so I made this a sunflower, but put an applique middle of the flower, and added a little lady bug. We aren't even 6 months into this yet and I can't wait to see the rest of the years blocks. And see everyones finished quilt.

    As usual, you have made another great block for the month of May!! The lady bugs just makes your beautiful Sunflower so perfect. Your DGD Is so going to love & cherish this quilt, when you get it all done. Thank you for sharing with all of us here on the Quilting Board!!

    ladies, is there a group to join or can I LURK AND SEW TOO? sorry, hit the caps by mistake. I have a bit of fabric to use and will make a few red/white/blue blocks for a gal here on the board who is doing quilts for wounded warriers/vets.

    ooops, I found the rules thread-I can play. now 1 more dumb question-are we supposed to use the suggested colors of the "picker"?

    Using up a new scrap stash someone gave me. Thought I'd try. This is only the 3rd block I've ever made in my life. I had one tiny little mishap but.. it's ok.

    Great job, that's not what my 3rd ever block looked like, heck after a million blocks I think I've made, still have mishaps. Hang in there, you are a natural.

    Thanks. I get a little OCD sometimes. My mother has been quilting forever and I watch and help but never sew.
