    this is where we seem to be as of page 4: (quoting myself)

    Admin has given his ok for Country Quilter to post on the 15th, under separate threads (one for instructions and discussion, the other pictures; like the April 1st).

    Norah, assuming you agree, you'll go on the 1st of May, also separate threads.

    Using the original list, that would give mimisharon until the 15th of May to decide if she wants to post then or wait until 1 June. If she wants to wait, we can ask Marcella if she wants to go on 15 May.

    That gives us another month to haggle over any details the majority feel need further discussion.

    Nobody needs to feel obligated or pressured to do more than one per month.
    (done quoting myself)

    thousands of people looked at the march stuff. thousands again looking at April. hundreds of downloads. so the "only 37" is relative.

    ain't it great? :P

    Tim, are those your cute little toes in your avatar? You are going to have to go everywhere incognito now because we might recognize you.

    When I first came to the site I was more interested in pictures of quilts and pattern's. (I still have not been able to decide on a pattern for the fabric I was so excited about at the time) But I would like to see a thread with pictures only of ea. BOM as they come in without any chat between. The name of the block, and date posted of course would be in the subject line. Each individual quilter's info posted with thier block and maybe a small blurb by the quilter at time of posting. It would be WAY COOL if the reply box on these pages would send any comments on individual pieces to a separate thread. How hard would that be Tim. ??

    I was in the process of laying out the blocks on YBR and thought having some photos of the prospective blocks would let me see how it all came together.

    I thought y'all would like my toes. Besides, that's my better side, photographically.

    I have a question about BOM. I noticed you have pictures of these but no patterns. Why not?
    I am sure some one would like them.

    Being new around here is brutal. Watch out for that Tim guy.

    He will steal the varigated thread right out from your needle and then send you off to look for flight line at the airport gift shop.

    Don't worry about being new. We all were at one time or another. Some more recently than others. If you have a question be sure to ask it. Otherwise you'll not learn or find what you're looking for.

    Tim, play nice!

    Right now, I only see two solutions:

    - Create a separate category for BOMs and allow many people to post their blocks at the same time. That way, we would have more than two blocks each month and anybody could choose to complete as many blocks as they want. Each BOM would have its own thread, and the only requirement would be not to cross-post in other people's BOM threads, so everything is kept separate.

    - Have multiple nominations each month and run the poll. Everybody would vote on the block they like the most, and at the end of the month, the winner (maybe the top two) become the official BOM(s) for the following month.

    I see potential problems with both of these approaches, but those are the only ways I see that eliminate the waiting list.
    See! This is a big part of the why and how this Board works so well....Yea! Admin
