TOPIC: BOM fabric requirements 2009

Block of the month 2009 13 Nov 2008 09:23 #28394

I guess we can assume that you all saw the new block of the month in Houston. Can we get a picture? WAAAAAAAAA! I want to see it too.
I want to do it this year. When can we expect a roll out on this one?
January 1? :? :? :?
OK I need a little cheese with that wine. I want go to Houston someday but you all know how that goes. Sometimes fabric is your first priority and of course eating and paying the mortgage. Of course I was there in spirit.

Glad you liked it, Heather! Always remember that there is more than one way to get something put together! Keep trying new ideas until you find one that is right for you!
Sue's directions for the 2009 BOM are even more detailed than for the appliqued one we are working on now, if you can believe that! However, I will also be adding some alternative techniques for some of the blocks in case anyone is interested. I had never done paper piecing before, and like you....really don't like dealing with removing the paper, but that part really wasn't too bad, and I must admit that the accuracy is impressive! But...I couldn't leave well enough alone, and will offer something else for you to try. With that said, I will say that for the center feathered star, I wouldn't even attempt it with traditional piecing. With Sue's directions it went together perfectly! If that star looks like more than you want to tackle, she offers a simplier design as an alternative that will go together faster. With alternative blocks for each element, we could all wind up with really different looking quilts! This is going to be fun!

I really appreciate the posting of the yardage requirements for this. It looks a bit overwhelming. but hey if I can do needle turn applique (this was my first attempt at doing it with the current BOM) then I can do this. Love learning all this new stuff!!!!

Plus if it's paper piece I can do paper piecing. Just hate tearing away all that darn paper afterwards.

I really want to thank Margo for putting up those albums of step by step on the applique. That is really what helped me, that and my mother-in-law. Thank you very much Margo, and I look forward to more step by steps from you on this next one.
Even if I don't do it your way, its always nice to take a look at how someone else is doing it, or get some ideas on other methods.

I think I'm going with blues, greens and purples, scrappy. The fabric requirement list was a bit daunting to me, but I am going to start getting FQ's and 1/2's together when I go shopping. It is truly a beautiful quilt.

You all know that I was honored to "test" the pattern for Sue, and have finished my 2009 BOM, so I can tell you that if you are making a scrappy quilt, the yardages are not critical! I didn't have enough of my background fabric (a soft yellow) and used two different backgrounds on some of the borders! We are really looking forward to seeing all the different color combinations for this project!

Thanks Alex for posting the yardage requirements!!!!! Cool beans! I wish your fabrics were going to be available in time for January but I may just figure out how to add them in when I can get them

Yes - you will have to sign up for a full year (2009) - starting Jan. to get the entire BOM . We are no longer doing it series based - very soon John will be spelling out the details. IF, you are a current member, nothing will change for you at all - your membership will just extend at the first of the year. The reason it is taking a little time to get up the resubscribe part up is that we have a deal we are working out as a gift to series our 3 people.........a thank you for supporting us and being loyal customers.
