    Bom

    I am going to do the BOM that is on this site. I have never done one of these before. How do I know how much fabric to get for all of the months? How do I know how many different colors or prints to get? Thanks for your input.

    I tend to go with a theme for the BOM. I may do all batiks or all one color like using different blues. This one looks like it is just different blocks (not like a theme block for every month such as hearts for february and shamrocks for March...). I use solid Kona white for all of my backgrounds and buy each month/dive into the stash as I see this month's pattern. I use Kona white because I can always easily buy more of the exact fabric I need if I run out. I would pick a theme like all solids or batiks or one color and go from there. It is hard to predict what the blocks will look like and exactly how much you would need. This is just how I tackle it. Others handle fabric selection differently.

    I am trying (not doing very well) to sew from my stash. It is getting out of control. I plan on doing this from my stash.

    total fabric requirements will be impossible to predict.
    there are too many variables.

    even i don't know yet which 12 blocks we'll be working on.
    block selection will be a combined effort between volunteer selectors and me.
    in some months we will all find out at the same time which block has been picked.

    I am doing the one from Country Junktion. Looks like it will be as good as last years was. But I too would like to know where to find the BOM on this site.
