    Pat Sloan's BOM

    Is anyone doing this in January? I just got the rest of my fabric today. This is the 1st time I am going to do anything like this.

    Do you have a link?

    Sonic screwdrivers, fez, bow ties, and Stetsons are cool.

    I don't know about this mystery stuff any more. After the Bonnie Hunt mystery quilt, I'm not sure about them.

    I generally will do a mystery if I'm able to pull from my stash. But, I won't buy new fabric for one because I have not loved a few. Or if I'm able, I wait until it's not a mystery anymore and decide if I like the finished pattern before tackling it.

    This sounds like fun, I might join this one. I've never done a mystery quilt before.

    I noticed that my LQS has the fabric for this BOM. They are having a big sale after Christmas. If I can purchase the fabric there, I will join. To be honest, I usually do not like the pattern of mystery quilts; but I always learn something and I can always find someone who likes the quilt to whom I can give it. I'm pretty sure I will be joining you. Thanks for the information.

    this is last years. http://www.freequiltpatterns.info/gl...-pat-sloan.htm
    My first mystery was with Bonnie Hunter and it spoiled it for doing it with anyone else
    everyone else's are, how can I say it? Boring. Way too simple for my taste. But my own quilts are complicated so it makes sense that I like Bonnies.

    I did Pats Mystery Quilt for 2014 and it was easy. She gives you the 2 color options but lots of people made scrappy or chose their own colors from their stash. She gives you step by step pdf form for the monthly block-in both of her color ways. I would print out the color way I was using only.
    Pat has cute unique patterns and for a quickie block-normally throw size, I'd suggest to try or maybe print out and so later. There is not a time limit on retreiving her patterns.
    I did Pats, Fat Quarter Shop and LQS BOMs this year. I think Pats was my favorite.

    My LQS did 2014 as a BOM: black and white with a third color option which I chose lime green. I'm quilting it now. I may do 2015 but will pull from my stash though I love her fabric.

    I did buy her fabric, because as a newbie I have no stash. I liked the ides it was only 1 BOM, so I wouldn't feel rushed.

    Pat's is a block of the month, not a "mystery" ala Bonnie Hunter. I love the way she presents her blocks, especially the two colorways.

    I've started aBOM but usually get bored before the quilt is half finished. Plus I'm not a mystery buff, I want to know I will like it before I spend a lot of money I'll end up hating.

    I did the Pat Sloan BOM through my LQS last year--I do like her directions. I also am about to finish Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt from last year--need the borders only. And frankly--it wiped me out! One of the blocks has 52 pieces! I tend more toward modern quilt, but wanted to do this one so I could do a scrappy quilt other than string quilts. Now I'm not so sure I want to do her current mystery quilt--looks pretty involved and I'm having a hard time "seeing" the colors. Think I agree with a few of you--I'm not real confident about my mystery quilts!

    But I might check out Pat Sloan's BOM.

    Was there a problem with her mystery quit? This summer I took the Marcus Brother's sew along. I didn't buy the kit I just used what I had. It was fun.

    Has anyone found all of the fabrics at any particular shop online? I've looked at a couple places and each one only has a few. Then I would have to pay several shipping charges

    I have started Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt. I am not sure I'll ever get it done. I've fallen behind during the holidays. Pat Sloan's BOM sounds like it might be slower paced and doable for me. I think I'll try it.

    I wish I could make myself do a mystery, I just have sooooo many quilts I KNOW I want to do taking the time and resources to do a mystery I may or may not like is not in the cards for me. But I do love lurking on the mystery sites.

    While on the website, I looked at her 2014 mystery BOM quilt. I liked it. I might just do this one. Got to go fabric shopping in my stash.

    Well, I have ordered all my fabric. I ended up having to substitute 2 of them but I think it will all work out. I finally found the navy coneflower fabric but ended up having to pay $12.35 for shipping! That one hurt but it was the only shop I could find it and I really liked it. I should have gone with the turquoise instead of the navy. The turquoise ones were much easier to find. My fabric won't all be here by 1/2 but I can review the block instructions and be ready when it does arrive. This should be fun I took a class from Pat in August and really enjoyed it.

    PatinVT - thank you so much for telling us about this. I bought some of this fabric a couple of months ago and had no idea what I was going to do with it! I'm in.

    I had to get my fabric from several different places on line.
