    Here is my December Block finished. I still have four more of the blocks to redo in the red, white and blue before I can put on borders. I have to say I completely enjoyed this years BOM and look forward to finding what next years theme is. Will continue to check back in to see everyone's progress
    Have an awesome day!

    I really enjoyed making this block. It might be one of my favorites. In fact, I have really enjoyed this entire project. Like many others, I'm not sure what I want to do at this point. I'm leaning toward a quilt as you go with free motion quilting. I made last year's Quilty BOM project and used Leah Day's class for the quilting. I love how that project turned out. I'm just not sure I can pull this off without instruction. Then again, if I don't try, I'll never know. ;-) Thanks to all who picked these great blocks and everybody who provided inspiration by sharing pictures. I love how they all turned out. So, Happy Holidays and on to 2014!!!

    Thank you Sulabug!! I'm a fairly new quilter so I'm full of self-doubt. I plan to make it for us, and put it in the living room if I can get it together in a pleasing way. If not so pleasing I'll put it in the dark hallway, lol! I'm open for suggestions. I'm thinking about putting the same black pebbles fabric around each block as a type of frame so I can cut them all the same size, then adding some colorful sashing and borders. What do you think of that idea? I would like to do some type of QAYG so I can do the quilting myself, but I'm not sure how.

    I think your Granddaughter is SO lucky to get that beautiful quilt!

Do you have someone designated to make your quilt for? These BOM projects are always so fun to do. Thank you for sharing your work with all of us here on the Quiting Board.

    Thanks Jenniky! That's what I'm thinking too, and then just embroider the same design all over in a multi-color thread? I am thinking of using the leftover matching fabrics for a multicolored border too, what do you think?

    Thimblebug I love the crispy modern look of your quilt!

    This is going to be so fun to see everyone's finished quilts.

    I'm excited about next year too. Maybe I'll just keep using the same fabric and keep making blocks, then I won't have to figure out how to put it together, LOL!!!

    I'm thinking about being real different and doing a 2x6 block configuration because I have a long blank wall and it would sit above the recliners there. It might be easier to quilt that way too.

    love these latest blocks pictured.

    What I've decided to do with mine is border 1/2 of them with black and 1/2 with white & then trim to a common size (my paper pieced blocks are a little over size) that would act as my sashing.... have one done but spent the day in the city shopping so no sewing today. We have a skiff of snow...so maybe I'll be staying home & stitching more tomorrow.

    I ended up doing another PP to finish up the BOM. One block wasnt big enough so found one I liked. Got the sashing finish. I took a pic just need to get it in the PC . Also need to get some backing ? . Humm a trip to Yuma on Monday
    guess I need to hit Joanns for some fabric to back it.

    Have spent the last five days in bed battling the flu. So much for getting the flu shot. Doc says they vaccinate for the most popular strains that are moving around. Guess I ran into a unpopular one... well definitely unpopular with me it was grueling. The happier side is I'm finally able to be up and moving around again though weak. Hoping tomorrow I will be ready to quilt again. Looking so forward to finishing this BOM as a Christmas present for my son in Alabama. Will continue to check back to see more pictures of everyone's progress. Holiday Cheer and Blessings for all my quilting friends here on the QB.
    Have an awesome day!

    Happy to hear you are up and feeling better. The advantage of the flu shot is that even if you get the flu it will be shorter duration... a few days rather than two weeks..... or worse.

    Sorry, I don't have EQ for the layout below. The small floral print is the sashing fabric & the stripe fabric is the back. The sashing will be 2 inches all around & it will have 2 inch black binding.
    Thought it would be nice double batted for cold football games!

    Jenniky hope you are feeling better by now, that flu can last for a very long time. I've decided I want this fabric that I am using to make a large quilt so going to use the same colors and keep adding the blocks for this next year to it. That should make a large queen, hopefully with a couple of borders I can get a king out of it. Can't wait for the new year to begin!!!
    Thought I'd show you a pick of the quilt hangers my husband made for me. After telling him what I pictured in my mind we came up with this. Thought it was a new idea but I guess other people are making them too! Here I thought I was a step ahead. Going to display one at the quilt shop and try to sell some. Love this, off the floor storage and I can still display my new ones as they are done.Name:  DSCF1737.JPG

    Jenniky & Roma - Thanks for your comments on that Ugly Steeler quilt blocks (looks like a swarm of bees to me, but Mary Beth loves it, go figure!

    Roma, want to see your RWB quilt soon. Always looking for new ideas for Quilts of Valor quilts for in hospital veterans.

    Jaba, love your quilts & quilt racks! Gotta get hubby (hobby woodworker) to make me some, thanks for posting!
    hugs,
    DJ
