You are both ahead of me Linda and Carol. I will get back on it when I finish my TOPS raffle quilt. I have finished the Childhood Cancer Awareness auction quilt I promised to make. Hopefully one of the grands will come by so I can post a picture of it.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

I made a half a dozen blocks from 2012 and then sewed them together to make a small charity quilt. Needs to be quilted. I haven't done this years BOM because I don't really like it. There are so many other quilting opportunities out there. Carol

I have made all the blocks for 2012 and have pieced the quilt. I am planning on pinning the quilt this week and will attempt to machine quilt it.
I used only polka dot fabrics with white as the background. I think the next time I make a BOM I will use a different background color. I liked the grey one I saw. Will try to post a picture of my 'Seeing dots' BOM in the near future.
I also signed up for the 2013 BOM but have a few other projects that need my attention first.
So many quilt ideas, so little time.....

I have done a few months of 2012 BOM but haven't done any lately. Working on other projects.

I did all but the final month of the first Craftsy BOM. Hope to finish it this summer. I signed up for the second one but haven't even looked at it yet. So many quilts, never enough time.

I haven't done any of last years blocks but it was not the best year for me. I have checked them out lately and am planning on making them and do this year's too.

This year's BOM is more of a traditional type finished quilt rather than willy nilly blocks. The first blocks I put together are quite vibrant and contemporary and would be cherished by a teenage girl I think so charity here we come. Carol

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one who signed up, but didn't complete the program! I assume that this year's BOM is the same as 2012's. I really didn't like a lot of her blocks, especially the wonky ones, but to put them together for a charity quilt makes a lot of sense. As always, this group comes up with wonderful ideas.

I did about 6 blocks last year I think. THat would be enough to sew together and donate to a charity which I think I will do. NO sense in having orphan blocks hanging around. Carol

I didn't have enough variety in fabric last year so only did some blocks. I have put those blocks away and added some that I tried different block patterns for practice with other fabric.
I may get them and the others out some day and see if I could put them together without them looking put together.

If you go to craftsy.com they have a free BOM or block of the month. Each month you do a different block. After you sign up it never goes away so you have as much time to complete it as you want. I have taken several of their courses and enjoyed them all.
