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.

When I first saw the 2013 quilt picture I loved the colors and wondered how the pattern would look in different color combinations. I have colored my prior BOM's with similar colors to the designer's choices, mostly because I needed to focus on the piecing techniques and because I loved what the designer (Sue Garmen) had done. Now I feel like I want to stretch my color knowledge, I am looking at different combinations. What a great thing that Christine Barnes' classroom appeared on TQS!

I just noticed that the first Instructional Segment will be posted on December 20, 2012, just so we know what to do with ourselves through the holidays :D

Margo, thanks for the 2 sites. I saved the color scheme designer to my quilt favorites, so I'll know where to find it. You are definitely our ambassador on the forum.
Thank you for all that you do.

Thanks for the color design site location. Was playing with it for just a few moments, but seems like it will really be a good tool for me since picking colors is difficult for me. Will have more fun with it later :D (after work)
Watched the intro to Christine Barnes Classroom and that will also be interesting and helpful.

The key word is to "PRINT". I hd downloaded "Bouquets for a New Day" to my hard drive and of course after a hard drive crash I no longer have the pattern. I have printed every BOM that I thought I might want to do ever since.
Expensive lesson learned as the cost of the pattern is above my budget now.

Great advice, Lotti. I printed all of the instructions for Sue Garman's 2008 Bouquet for a Day. It's still on my to do someday list.

and if you havn´t downloaded all the instructions for the 2012 BOM - don´t forget to do that before the end of this year - even if you don´t have a chance to make it now (i think the previous year´s couple of BOMs were available till sometime in january - but to be on the safe side - make a half hour available before the year is out - it is an absolute beauty and you might just decide that this is your perfect 2015 project :wink:

You are all set! You don't have to do anything or sign up for the BOM. As long as you are a star member for the duration of 2013, you will have access to the 2013 BOM. If your membership expires sometime in 2013, then you'd have to rejoin as a star member to keep having access to the BOM (and everything else!).

If they follow the same schedule as they did in 2012, then on the first of each month of 2013, there will be an announcement on the Daily Blog page that that month's BOM directions are ready. There will be a link at that point so it's easy to click on it to get to the page where the BOM stuff is. Or you can go to the BOM tab in the main menu on the top of every page, and scroll down until you see the 2013 BOM area. All the patterns will be there each month for you to download free to your computer. Each month's directions will stay there and be available for the whole year.

Usually on or around Dec 1st, there will be an intro posting with an overview and yardage requirements, so keep an eye out for that. Then come Jan 1st, the first installment should be up!

Hope this helps!

The 2013 BOM will only become available in January of 2013. Usually each month at the beginning of the month. They have made kits available for those who want to purchase those materials so that they will be ready to begin in January.

It would be nice for those of us who are going to choose our own fabrics to know how much we will need of each colour though so that we can also begin at the start of January.
