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.

Leslie, I used to live in San Mateo, and visited HMB as often as possible! I love that beach, and the Purisma Creek hiking trails! Margarita, Auburn is beautiful too, I used to love visiting up there! I understand your issue, Margarita. For every quilt we commit to, there are another three we wish we could do as well!

Hi, my name is Margarita and I live in Auburn, (near Sacramento) California.
I am sitting on the fence on this one. Not sure which side will let me put my feet down. It is a lovely quilt and I sure would like to make it. I have too many WIP''s (Works in progress) I have 2 more rows to do on DEAR JANE quilt-26 4-1!2" blocks and 7 border triangles to go. (hand pieced/appliqued) Then I am hand quilting 2 wall hangings,and then there are a bunch of other projects started. Also my eye on new projects,of my own and some with my quilting Bee, a crazy quilt and a color quilt. Then my small day guild want to do a block exchange of some kind. What to do ???? There are only 24hrs in a day, and a lot of things to do.

Hi, my name is Kathy and I live in sunny California. TQS was my christmas present to myself and the BOM sounds like fun.I feel a bit like goldilocks, the Sedona is a bit brite, the buttons a bit too tame. As I have never made a Christmas quilt, this pattern is screaming red green and gold to me. It just might have holly in the corners instead of circles. Only time will tell. I have looked at the results of the last 2 BOM's and feel like I missed out on a word of fun. So here I am with a pile of fabric and a smile on my face!

This is my first time joining in a TQS BOM. I too was inspired by the lovely pattern and techniques. (The others were lovely but I felt too overwhelmed to jump in back then) I am using my own fabrics as well, a warm neutral color scheme. I am in Central California, near Sacarmento.

I am Muriel (Crowcafe) from the UK. I am hoping to do this one, although it seems quite daunting. I completed the 2009 BOM and love it and I am still working on the 2011. I dont like starting another major project until I complete the present one, but this looks very tempting.

Very excited to meet everyone! Leslie from Northern California - overlooking the Pacific near Half Moon Bay. Weather is beautiful, sunny, somewhat crisp. My kids are grown and moved away (a little bit glad about this, a little bit sad and sniffley), and I work a temp/seasonal job mostly, so I have an off-season until March or April. Need to get as far on this BOM as I can. I think I have all my fabrics, just need to finalize the inner star/circle and begin! Oh YAY!

I'm doing the BOM. I haven't yet worked out my colorway, and keep playing with it. Once I get that done, I think I'll try to pull the fabrics out of my stash. I gave some thought to buying one of the kits, but I think I have so much stash I may just be able to make it almost entirely from the stash in colors I work out. Dawn and Maggie, I love the concept of a black background. This is going to be fun!

I too am a first time BOMer. Very excited to start. I'm Kari from St. Charles, IL - stay at home mom of a 2.5 year old so I get very little time to quilt. My fabric just got here yesterday - I order from Thousands of Bolts using their color picker and I have to say I am loving the fabric. (As a matter of fact I am heading down stairs right now to iron while my son sleeps).

I also did the SOTTT - I was one of those that sent in almost 700 triangles! That is on my to do list this year. Hopefully I can get to it soon - but I have a few baby quilts to make for friends who are ready to deliver (as a matter of fact, one might come today!).

I love Sarah V's quilts and I am excited to see this one unfold for myself as well as everyone else!

Almost forgot to mention - today is my birthday! The fabric getting here finally, was a lovely birthday gift!

I am doing the BOM too! It will be my first BOM of any kind. Although I have been quilting in a haphazard way for 30 years (I was a wee sprout then, lol), I have only been getting serious about it for a year. Even though my stash is huge, I will be using all new fabrics. :roll: I am hoping to keep my plan as a mystery until the end, but my photo will give you a clue!

I have been so impressed with the various quilts produced by the previous years' BOMs, and I am pretty sure we cannot go wrong!
