Thank you all for the sweet comments and thank you to Sue -- I am no longer afraid of the "a" word. Now you've got me thinking about those "few" quarter inch seams you're talking about! :lol:

Four more months.... 19 Aug 2008 20:01 #24502

I must confess: the next BOM will be a bit of a challenge. If you have tracked any of the quilts that I've made in the past... you will notice that I do not do "simple" pieced quilts. Stick with me though (and with Margo and Bridget, who do such magic!)... I think that everyone will learn a lot when making the next BOM. The beauty of doing an online quilt is that page count is not a consideration. I can put lots of color photos into the pattern, and lots of extra tips, tricks, and lessons. In the end, I know that every single one of you can make the next quilt! Think about it: how many of you ever thought you'd get through all of this applique? I know there were some doubters out there - but from everything I've seen, you're champions! And besides - what's so challenging about sewing a few quarter-inch seams?! Ha!

Well I thank again Sue, Margo and Bridget for making this BOM so much fun. I got a late start and waylayed due to my medical problems this year but being able to follow along has kept me keen to finish my blocks now that I'm up again. And that probably wouldn't have happened without you girls. But even if I wasn't trying to make this beautiful quilt, it's been worth it to watch and learn and be entertained. You 3 are very important catalysts for the fun we have here. :D

I know what you mean, and she looks way to young to have accomplished so much.

Margo thanks for the link to Sue's blog. There is a lot of good information there. I guess there is no question about us pestering you next year. You're a natural leader. Hope you'll help us out next year too. Thanks for all the things like the map that you step up and do. That is so cool for you to get in on the planning for the pieced quilt! Good for you!

Thanks Karen, but Judy posted the link first! I had actually forgotten to check it recently! :shock: There is great info there!
And Bridget gets the credit for the awesome map! Mine looked like a kindergarten project!

And....TRUST ME....Margo has NOTHING TO DO with the planning!! I've just been a sounding board....this is Sue's design, and you are going to LOVE it! :D :D :D
It's going to be so much fun to see what kinds of colors everyone comes up with!

Yes, I have been able to explore more creativity with color working on this. I sure like having a month to figure out how I want the block to look. It is a beautiful quilt pattern. I am sure looking forward to next year's,,,,
And thanks to Margo, for always giving us tips, i appreciate it!

I have enjoyed the BOM way way more than I ever expected to and can't wait for a new challenge in January. The best part of the news is that Sue is still going to be out leader. Thanks Alex, Ricky!!

I'm so glad the secret is out!!! :lol:
I can hardly wait to see everyone's reactions to the 2009 pieced BOM! It is AMAZING! Needless to say, it's not your 3x4 blocks of the month!!! Once again, Sue will have us stretching our talents and learning to do techniques that we have never tried before!
You're gonna love it!
