    The last 2 years I've done the BOM on the board. last year I also did one at FatCatPatterns- Funky Chickens. and the one for the quilt guild I'm in which was really an exchange.
    Now this year I'm over extended -again! Signed up for Craftsy (swore I wouldn't ), doing the one here on the board and a couple others. I'm sure our guild will have one too but won't find out about that one until later in the month.
    Oh, and I'm doing the Sulky one.

    Does anyone know when the FREE mystery BOM designed by Shabby Fabrics will start.
    I missed the 2012 and would like to do 2013.

    I have three pieced quilt patterns I bought last year that are time consuming I will break up into twelve BOM's. I haven't found one on line that I am interested in doing, so this will work for me. I also have two bom's printed out from bunny hill that I haven't made and want to do as well. The snowman and the henrietta squirrel applique quilts. I need to pull them out and buy the fabrics, buttons and threads and then set up a project container for each. I am pretty sure those will keep me busy.

    Here is one of the patterns I will break up into months to finish...

    I had bookmarked a website or blog where the person listed all the free BOMs of the year. I must have lost it. Does anyone know what site it is? Thanks so much.

    You can get the monthly bom kit, the pattern itself is a free pattern they say to be released monthly around the 7th, as far as I can see it has not been put up yet.

    The Shabby Fabrics January BOM is now up. I am going to download it on the chance I may do it. It is pretty.

    The one thing that I am not all that fussy on is the wool, could use something else, just have to think about it.

    I already have several on the go:
    Dancing with the Stars (fortunately, this finishes next month - it's been going for a year already)
    Border Creek Station mystery quilt
    Our guild is doing a BOM for 6 months
    Patchwork Times has one I'm joining
    And I jumped into an embroidery BOM - Gardener's Alphabet - that just started

    So I figured I was busy enough for this year. And then I saw all the lovely ones posted on this thread. I will be checking out the Craftsy BOM, skill builder, and scrap happy BOMs. Thanks (I think) for the pointers.

    Thanks for all the ideas - I had no idea that there were so many BOMs around. I'm doing the Craftsy one and also the Aurifil : http://www.flickr.com/groups/2013aurifildom/. Now I'm off to find the one on this site and sign up for it.

    This has been fun seeing all the BOM out there-for free too!
    Now I'm doing about 6!
    Ludlowquiltandsew, I enjoy your videos. You'll enjoy the BOM here on the board. I've done it for the last several years and it's a great group. SulaBug is terrific
    One that I'm doing is the Castle one. I sent her a pix of my 1st block and she actually replied & said she'll put it on her site. Made 2 of the 1st Sulky block & am going to finish 1 into a mini quilt to hang on the wall in my sewing room

    Delaware quilts BOM is doing something different this year (I am a newbie to this site) - looks like a quick quilt each month. I am going to try this. I have half done BOM's - with this BOM idea, if I do not follow through the entire year, I will have finished tops to show for my effort.

    Thanks for pointing out that the pattern is free. I too thought they were charging for theirs. I've got it downloaded, but when will I start???

    I signed up for the Craftsy one but don't think I'm going to do it as I really don't like the completed quilt -- too busy for my tastes. But I'll follow along on some of the techniques I want to learn. I am going to do the one on Pile of Fabric -- am already behind as I haven't chosen the fabrics yet. I didn't know there was one on this board and hadn't heard about the Open Gate quilts, so will check both of those out. But since I'm working on two mystery quilts right now and Judy will be offering another one in late Feb., I figure I better choose just two BOMs so as not to get too overwhelmed.

    I felt the same way you did..but it is the polk a dot fabrics she used that I really don't care for. I think I may do the blocks and by using my own fabric choices I will like it much better. If you look beyond her fabrics I think the blocks look nice.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I am participating in 11 block of the month projects. I think I went a bit overboard this year. Thank goodness one ends next month, one in June, and I think one around August. For the most part, I plan to take the BOM projects and make a bunch of little quilties (24" quilts, for the local NICU) from the blocks, because I'm not generally fond of sampler type quilts. I'm hoping to learn a few new techniques along the way, and use up a pile of scraps.
