    I also think the Blocks from the Bible would be interesting to make into a sampler quilt.

    I'm gonna try and do this next year also. I have saved all the BOM's so far for this year but have only done 1 of them. I will go with whatever anyone decides. :0)

    I would love to get in on this BOM I've never done houses; that would be alright. BUT I am curently working on a Chocolate Star BOM with mbogenpohl from this board and it is lushes, it twinkles then melts in your mouth, and I don't like chocolate, If you can't tell my vote is for stars. Michelle & I keep talking about doing another one in red/white or blue/white. Here are a couple of pictures of the blocks. Just to give you a taste, no pun intended HA HA

    [quote=SulaBug]Hey girls, I am up for anything that you decide on!! :D I think I am hooked on these BOM project's!! Just a thought, but how about different houses?
    ---------------------
    I'd go for that one. I absolutely LOVE Victorian houses, and
    they come in such a variety of styles that one year would not
    be enough time to see all of them. I have books and books of
    pictures of Victorian houses, and even a picture of the really,
    truly ultimate in Victorians, Carson House.

    Foundation pieced houses??? Sounds interesting. I'm up for anything the group wants and look forward to doing a BOM with other great quilters.

    I would like to do a BOM where the blocks will "go together" - as in having the designs based on the same basic grid

    One could do a lot of star variations on a 3x3 grid -
    or a 4x4 or 5x5

    Or have them all based on the LeMoyne star.

    I'm still very much a beginner, and the stars kind of worry me, though, LOL! So, my vote would definitely be houses.

    I think, too, a lot of people make "star" quilts all the time, anyway. I think the houses would be more unique,know what I mean?

    I think the BOM's are more of a sampler type quilt, too, and a lot of the star patterns depend on all the blocks making a secondary pattern. The houses would be more for a samplet quilt.

    Just my two cents.

    What if one month it was a star and the next month it was a house block and so on and so on??? Just a thought.

    I will be working on one star quilt very soon, need it for about the first of the year, it will be red, white and blue.
    If need be and I learn how to go about it, I would be happy to host a BOM 2011 for houses.

    I would like to do houses, as there are lots of star BOM out on the web. How about 2, one stars and one houses, then everyone would be happy.

    Your chocolate stars are just beautiful and inspiring. I think if we do the star BOM I would opt for the chocolate fabrics.
    Although, I would like to do the houses as my first choice.

    I am working on a blue star quilt now. I need to find a way of doing them so I don't lose my points. So I would opt to do another next year.

    The house thing is interesting. Maybe expand it to a Neighborhood theme? Schools, houses, stores, outhouses... That would really jazz things up.
