    Smile NEW! BOM with Quilt Story Quilt-Along

    Hi fellow quilters!

    Welcome to the Block of the Month with Quilt Story Quilt-Along for those who are going to be making a new block on the first Monday of each Month with Quilt Story, beginning March 2012 - March 2013. Everyone is welcome to come and play along with us!!!

    This thread will be the "homebase" for our Quilt-Along. We are going to hang out here to chat, share ideas, share pointers, share tips, give encouragement, and cheer each other on.

    I will be acting as your hostess through this Quilt-Along any questions, comments or conflicts can be addressed to me through a p.m.

    Introduction to the Quilt

    Heather and Megan have written a wonderful introduction to this quilt on their website. They have a list of the blocks we will be making posted on their blog which you can print.
    http://quiltstory.blogspot.com/2012/...-of-month.html


    Ground Rules and Guidelines

    As much as we all dislike “rules," there are a few. It is necessary to lay groundwork so that we all understand up front what to expect and what is expected so things can run smoothly. Please take the time to read the guidelines set forth here.

    1. Be kind and Encouraging to all! This is a very friendly, encouraging and supportive group. Be patient. Please keep in mind that there are those participating here with a wide range of quilting skills from the novice to the master and every level between. We want this to be enjoyable for all. No negative comments.

    2.All copyrights will be honored and protected.
    The only link that will be posted for this Block of the Month Quilt-Along is listed above.

    Because we wish to respect Heather and Megan's, the designers' efforts to create this quilt, as well as any contractual obligations they may have to any publishers of any commercial products, we will not permit uploading of any PDF files of the monthly blocks, nor any instructions or tutorials. Those will only be found on Quilt Story's blog.

    3. This is not a swap it is a Quilt-Along. This means you are making your own blocks for your own quilt. Therefore you can choose whichever fabrics you like best.

    4. First Monday of Each Month. Remember each new Block of the Month block will be posted on Quilt Story's blog the first Monday of every month, beginning on March 1st, 2012.

    5. Quilt Story's Link-up. On the first Monday of every month Heather and Megan will post their blocks. They will have a link-up where you can link your blocks if you choose. They also have a button you can add to your blog, if you wish. (Just go to Quilt Story for information on these items.)

    6. Share your pictures. Please share your pictures on the picture thread.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...ml#post4960222
    It will be fun to see everyone's color and fabric choices and how each finished block looks.

    As for me, I am looking forward to meeting you all and sharing in this sure to be fun Quilt-Along!

    Just signed up. I'm working from my stash this year. So far, I'm making 5 (counting this one). I should make a dent in the stash.

    I'm in! I have a DH who is eager for me to use my stash( - too much!!) so I will be pulling from there for colors. It sounds like a lot of fun!

    I signed up at Quilt Story & I ordered the book. I know that they said that I didn't need the book but knowing me I'll need it. I had seen it before & kinda wanted it anyway! I'm thinking about getting colors that my DM likes & make this for her.

    I have swapped hundreds of blocks, so it will be great to make a sampler quilt for me! It will be fun to see what everyone does! I belong to a Bee here in NYC & will tell them about this fun activity.

    No need to register. Just check back here after March 1st. You can go to QuiltStory's blog and sign up for their emails if you want.

    Stichinluvr: yes please, tell us about your other BOM's!!!!

    Okay, those of you doing lots of BOMs - let us in on what you are doing, please. Some of us who have not participated in one before want to know what the pull is to do these.

    I am looking forward to this. Seems like March is so far away. But I know the time will fly. I hope I can keep up.
