Join us on a new 12-month quilting journey as we bring you a fabulous quilt designed especially for TQS by Sarah Vedeler. Sedona Star is a spectacular medallion quilt that features a beautiful center star surrounded by a charming array of appliqué elements.

Each month we will provide a photo and detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, as well as full-size patterns. Sedona Star finishes at approximately 88” x 88” inches. One version features a total of sixteen different print fabrics, including colorful shades of blue, pink, purple, yellow, red and gold; however, Sarah is providing another alternative color option and instructions for each month as well. Fabric kits for both colorways area available in limited quantities through the TQS Shoppe.

I will be giving this 2012 BOM a good try now that I got the templates to print out the right way! (New printer at work and it liked the templates! ) So I only got three spikes sewn on the star last night and hope to finish Temp 1 tonight. :D

I must be nuts. My UFO pile is too high but I can't resist this one. Am from Red Deer Alberta. Completed the Stars for a New Day Block of the month last year. It was incredible. All in nuetrals. Have never done applique before. So am looking forward to learning new techniques. Another challege is to jump out of the box. Choose to do in black and white (and greys). (I love color.) But with so many options of embroidery and tread painting, my head is spinning with excitement. Look forward to viewing everyones progress.

Hi everyone
I am also joining in as a first timer doing the 2012 BOM. Took part in the SOTTT exchange and the Strip Exchange and attended the dinner gathering in Houston. I still have trouble putting colors together, so I am going with Sarahs Blossoms and Blooms colorway. I have really enjoyed seeing what some of the ideas are for colors and must say I really do like the black with the brights. I almost wish I would have waited and maybe done something like that. Oh well, I saw Sarahs in Houston in the colors I am doing and loved it. I am in Panama now so will have to wait til later this month to finish the center (have the inside made but no borders attached yet). I am looking forward to this project and enjoy reading all the posts and finding out lots of interesting information.

Hi Sandy, it's good to see you again. I almost didn't recognise you with your new photo. I had to check your profile to make sure I wasn't thinking of the right person. I'm glad to say that I was :-) You will have a great time with this BOM, I know.

Hi Sandy! I'm glad to see you back. I've thought of you and wondered how you're doing. Good luck with the BOM.

Thanks Margo and Maggie. This quilt is so unlike anything I have done but I'm really getting excited about it. I haven't done anything for me in a while so I need this.

Thank you Margo for your quick reply - I plucked up the courage to explore after sending my previous message and did upload a photo of my work thus far in Show and Tell - just have to learn to save photos in My Documents folder before being able to upload. I did not do a colour map so am 'flying by the seat of my pants' as it were, and will bring in more colours as I progress through the project. :lol: I will check out the other links you sent me and update my profile to include a photo of myself.

Hi to everyone,

I am Caryl Purdue from Evanston, IL, just north of Chicago. This is my first BOM too. I just couldn't help myself. I love paper piecing and Sarah's design just looks like too much fun to be missed. I also used Paint to drop in colors and after the 5th or 6th tedious try, I have settled on blues, yellows and fuchsia with a smattering of oranges and greens. I sure hope it works because I have purchased lots of new fabric (doing my part for the economy!) I look forward to seeing everyone's work and chatting about the process.

All the best,
Caryl

Hi Leslie, I will be doing the Sedona star also. I have printed out the templets, pick out my fabric and about to cut the binding. I do have questions though. Will have month one done this week. I love the block of the month concept. I try to have it done before the month is over. This is my first quilt from the BOM from The quilt show.
