    I've never done a BOM so my question is How will I know how much fabric to purchase? Do you give us guidance on colors, yardage, etc?

    I have never done one either but my daughter did and she loed doing it. I too don't know how much material to buy. I will just have to send my daughter to get 6 yards of 20 different colors I guess.

    I think everybody does their BOM differently. I have been using up my stash for the ones I am currently working on, so each quilt will be very scrappy. It's hard to tell ahead of time how much fabric will be needed ahead of time.

    But I shall fall in with whatever the other quilters decide...ciao
    I agree dannypanny, I have been collecting pics of churches. Someday I would like to make a quilt with all kinds of church blocks. Greeter Eva

    I'm taking an applique class tomorrow just in case I need to know. I really like the idea of a town. I've seen some towns that I swear have more churches than people.

    It would be interesting someday to make a quilt of religious buildings like churches, temples, mosques, meeting houses, synagogues, etc. There are also many iconic religious symbols from all religions that would make a beautiful world religion quilt. Hmm...maybe I need to research this and put it in my someday folder.

    I would like to join this time and I liked the idea of one month stars and the next houses. Although I'm up for either.

    Haven't seen too many house patterns, will have to go and look. I love light houses, so could be interesting.

    One of the new books I bought has a block in one of the quilts.

    I love your ideas houses,barns,school houses etc. I think the idea some people had about the states kind of leaves out us Canadians. But if that's what they mostly vote for then so be it.

    I have never done houses or buildings. If we did a town square type would everyone do the same buildings or would each person decide what types of building to do? Such as would we do our own neighborhood?

    We don't want anyone left out. House, barns, churches, outhouses, lighthouses, etc. would be great. I am already thinking in my mind how to construct an igloo.

    I live in the country and we have more churches around here than we do houses I believe. Other than churches and houses all we have is the neighborhood store and a convenience center for trash.

    New to this whole forum, just found it. Love BOM's. I do not particularly like houses, love stars, but would love to join whatever the theme turns out to be.

    I've never done BOM but the house/town idea sounds like a lot of fun and a great way to use some scraps. Are the blocks 12"?

    I really want to this again next year. I vote for stars! (Chocolate ones for me)I did not enjoy the last houses we were swapping, so I dropped out. If houses win this time, I may work on the Chocolate Stars by myself.

    No we don't swap blocks here. We just all make the same block with our choices of fabrics/colors, keep them, and hopefully later make them into a quilt :thumbup:
