    that's one of the great things about our BsOM.
    no need to sign up (unless you'd like to volunteer to select one of our blocks.)
    jump in whenever you like.
    we don't delete them so they'll be here waiting as long as you need.

    This sounds interesting. I need to get out of my comfort zone and try something new. I will here on the 1st.

    Thanks Patrice, it will be fun! I don't think I'll volunteer till I figure out what I'm doing. I played with Mr. Clover (seam ripper) more than I played with Mr. Janome (sewing machine) today!

    I'm in again this year. This year I am only doing 1 block per month. That doing 1 for each granddaughter just can't happen again

    I'm in. (Hopefully for the long haul.) I like the idea of having this wonderful group of ladies to keep me accountable. lol. Surely I can squeak out one block a month!

    I'd like to pick a block if I could.. there are a lot of techniques out there I personally need to work on. Can I pick September? It's our wedding anniversary.

    Patrice, I would love to take February if possible. I have a heart block (appliqued) that you crazy quilt the heart. That would be learning something new for some people. I have good directions for it, too. Thanks for considering this for me. MargieLou Hall fmhall2

    I am scared but in. There are a lot of blocks that scare the heck out of me. points .. argh points. I would love to be in to do a block that I have always wanted to try. I can find the instructions and would be happy to post. Say a Sept block? I think its a secret right what we we all be doing? I will pm you. colors now that is the challenge for me what fabrics to do.. this is a CHALLENGE quilt right? argh I should do amish.. I am not thrilled with working with solids they show every little error to the max.. hum.. ah ha! I have no one who would enjoy that so phew one less drip of sweat to wipe off while I plan this terror quilt. I surehope everyone here is willing to talk me through a block if need be. please no paper piecing oh lord no.. (lol) be easy on me guys.. or hold my hands a whole lot

    there will be separate threads for each month.
    the block for each month will be announced on the 1st of that month.

    i'll collect and maintain a list of links once we get started.
    it will be easiest to subscribe to the thread that lists the links.

    I was so excited that I pushed the post button too fast! I've never done a BOM before. Do I wait and get my fabric each month or will we find out in January?

    Hsweany you pick your own fabric. Each of us will be making the same blocks but with our own color choices. You will need enough to make at least 12 blocks. But you can use a whole bunch of different fabrics or just a few. Also you can chose to do just a few of the blocks as they come up its all up to you. I know I am shaking about the challenges ahead but figure everyone can help me out if I get stuck (LUCKY YOU GUYS!) and Sulabug is starting us out and she is a great teacher so its going to be much fun. I am going to pull fabric from my stash and probably decide once I see what the first block will be. I am thinking browns and soft rose and ivorys a comfy quilt but heck I might make amish for the real challenge of it all.. now that is pushing all my buttons for sure. Or modern fabrics would take me out of the old sofa comfort. this is going to be fun!
