Hi all -
Jenny asked if 1930s ("Aunt Grace") fabrics would look in the new BOM. Absolutely! Maggie is right - I believe you would need to include some of the 30s-type solid fabrics in the quilt to keep it from looking too busy. Think about using them in the "floaters" (the unpieced border strips) that separate the different blocks/units -- they would let your eyes rest a bit. Also, the setting triangles for the feathered star and for the blocks set on point in the outer border could be made using 30s fabrics or solid fabrics -- solids would give you a wonderful place to showcase some lovely quilting, too.
Best wishes -
Sue Garman

2009 BOM 14 Nov 2008 07:31 #28436

Thanks, Margo.

Karumba!! :shock: It's Amazing! Sue looked so calm and put together at Quilt Festival. If I would have finished designing, making and publishing this BOM I would have my hair standing on end about now. Looking forward to 2009.

I want her vitamins............... :P

Kim, a picture of the 2009 BOM is on the DAILY BLOG for October 30th. There is a list of the fabric requirements here on the forum. Look under BLOCK OF THE MONTH...BOM FABRIC REQUIREMENTS 2009. Fabric kits will be available soon in the TQS Shoppe.

Thanks Maggie and Lynn I am leaning towards using them and the idea about using a solid for the pinwheels makes sense. the repro fabrics are beautiful but they are busy, busy, busy

Asked Sue Garman at Quilt Festival about this and she said she thought it would be great scrappy! I think Margo said she used scraps in hers.

Jenny, I think the repro fabric would look great scrappy. But I think that to keep it from looking too busy, you should use a neutral "solid" to help the repro fabric pop out (as in, use a white or light in those pinwheels, and your repro fabric scrappy! Hope that makes sense!)

Maggie in E. Central Illinois, who is busy finishing up her works in progress so I can tackle this new challenge!

I need some help. Do you think this quilt would look alright done in 1930's repro fabrics done scrappy style. I don't do well when it comes to picturing what quilts may look like, so your help would be much appreciated.

Thank you, that is kind of what I am thinking as well. But it will be easier to figure out once the yardage is posted.

Heather, I think this quilt will lend itself really well to being a scrappy quilt. I am waiting to see what the yardage requirements are and then will get a focus fabric (& maybe a couple to go with it). And hopefully can fill in from my stash.

Thank you Wanda, That is a lot of money, but that is also a lot of fabric as well. I really appreciate that cause now I can try to decide and figure out what I want to do.

Heather, I want to say that the fabric was like $210. (I could be wrong about the price as I did do a lot of shopping!) It sounds like a lot of money, but there is a lot of fabric there, almost 23 yards! The kit is awesome and some of these fabrics I would not have thought to purchase. I know that I would not have been able to get this collection of fabrics locally or even driving 2 hours to some of the larger quilt shops. I love the way this quilt turned out and these colors are perfect for my bedroom. Now, what to do with the fabric that I purchased a while back for a quilt for the bedroom?!? :roll:
Happy Quilting,

Shiner TX
