    Not sure...but I remember that Laurene Sinema (now deceased) had a Santa sampler...maybe they are her Santa appliques??? Maybe you could try e-mailing the person at the blog that is mentioned under the photo for information.

    Got it! It was done as a BOM several years ago. All the patterns are still available at Quakertown Quilts. It wasn't easy to track down because there are so many different arrangements of the blocks!! Designed by Sue Garman.

    If I am reading it correctly under the picture is a blog to click on and Kim made the quilt. When I clicked on her bio there is a 'contact'. Good luck!

    Don't be fooled. When DH retires it just means more work for you. My own personal quote is "Men retire, women perspire (more).

    I must comment on the cost of BOM patterns. Each section is treated as an individual pattern. Then the final directions are written. When you think about a traditional quilt pattern. It may have 2 or 3 blocks at the most in it. then it is the placement of the blocks to make the pattern. Also with any applique patterns. You must print every piece out for each applique. this adds to the total cost of the pattern. I think 30 to 60 dollars is acceptable for a BOM type pattern. I know it maybe to expensive for some. I understand that but I also know the design process and it really is a bargain! I have paid up to 110 dollars for a BOM pattern from Australia. I am currently working on it. I love it and would not have taken the time to design one like it. If you like it enough you will find a way to get it! Have a Great Day! Luann in CT

    That's only $4.50 per pattern...not expensive at all for an appliqué pattern.

    I agree, crafterrn1. I am very selective about the patterns/books I purchase, so when I do make a purchase, especially for a BOM that I am excited about, the cost seems less of a factor. If this was an active pattern, paying monthly would be much easier on the budget, but I have saved my pennies (ha) and this is a bit of a splurge for me. Found a great deal on the set of 12 patterns plus fabric, so I am a happy camper! Thanks to all for your input. This forum is just the best! :-)

    That is a beautiful quilt, but to make it you have to buy all three pattern sets, and they total $93. Too much for me.

    It is a lovely quilt I love the Christmas / Santa theme. I see BOMs that I like and buy them for future projects one day when I retire (at least that is my reasoning )
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    It is beautiful but I too am not willing to pay that high price.

    I find that most of the block of the months are to expensive for me to. So I look for free blocks of the months on the web and I can always find something I like.

    That is a beautiful santa sampler. But it looks like to much work for me at the moment. I did save the picture and link. Thanks for sharing.

    I KNEW as soon as I saw the price when I looked up the pattern that there would be complaining about the cost! The applique patterns are striking and intricate and the quilt setting is stunning - the designer deserves a good return for her work.

    Very pretty, I don't have any desire or patience for something like that.

    I don't think the price is high for what all you get. If I wanted that pattern, I would pay that price and be happy. Totally happy. I do BOMs all the time, so I understand the high price of them. I usually do BOMs by the month. And at the end, it ends up costing over $300 for the quilt top. But it is always a gorgeous, gorgeous quilt. Something I will keep for myself to be handed down in the family. An heirloom if you would say so.

    I don't think anyone is "complaining" about the price. We are just saying it's more than we are willing to pay. Just a statement.

    When your DH retires teach him to LA quilt and make money doing small jobs and that way he is out of your hair so you can quilt. My DH retired 3 times(sort of speaking); in his 70's and he going to do LA next year to keep him out of my hair unless he wants to work on something else. He like the mechanical aspeck of longarm quilting and wants to design his own. This is going to be interesting!
