TOPIC: Completed 2008 BOM

29 Dec 2008 17:46 #30149

Wow, wow, wow!! This is SO much fun watching these exciting quilts come together. I haven't seen a top yet that I don't love. How amazing is that?! Are all BOMs like that or is this an unusual bunch? I think the latter but I've never done a BOM.

I am so loving seeing your completed quilts. I feel like we've been on a journey together! Nancy - your quilt is luminous! Margo, the borders are original and give the quilt a whimsical quality. Margarita, I love the sashing treatment and your color choices. Debbie, the ribbon on the border looks great without looking overdone. Way to go ladies!

I've just gotten a chance to look at all the finished quilts in Show & Tell and it is SOOOO exciting to see them coming together! I finished my December block but had to tear down my sewing room to let it be a guest room for Christmas & haven't gotten it back yet, so putting it together will have to be a 2009 project. I love the varieties you all have shown in your borders and sashings!! Great work everyone!!

Nancy, I used to do that at our last home with its steel double door. That is why I noticed how you did yours. Now I don't have that, so have to come up with other ways of doing it.

Hi all - thanks for the nice comments. Debbie - I may add a bow like yours on my border. It's really stunning.

I realized that since I wanted to photograph the quilt top and not the whole finished quilt (heavier) I could probably use magnets and hang it over my steel front door in the foyer. It worked great! I left it there for quite a while; I wonder if anyone noticed as they walked by and were puzzled!

I'm off to search for backing fabric today! Several coupons in hand! Yea!

Debbi, great top! Camille's ribbon was a great idea, and you have executed it very nicely! Have fun quilting it! Let me know how you do it, as I still haven't got the inspiration of what to tell my long arm quilter.

Nancy, perfect border fabric, as it really acts as a frame for the picture inside.

I love looking at how everybody is hanging or laying the top out for the picture. We are innovative bunch!

Margarita, love the sashing! Its simple, yet has a wonderful impact! It's WOW!

Margo, OMG. Did you have circle mania! Yes, I know it's not hand sewn, but you must have been dizzy by the time you were done. Just wonderful use of applique in that border, especially with all the vines coming out of the corner vase. I'm awestruck!

I love how the BOMs are coming together and getting some great ideas on what I want to do with mine. I am working on my last block and I am determined to have it finished by midnight Dec 31 and maybe I can start setting them together New Year's Day.

Hi, everyone. I am sure enjoying seeing how beautiful and unique the BOM quilt tops are turning out. The variety of colors are enjoyable to see. I am on holiday break and have been catching up on my sewing! It sure has been relaxing for me. We have had unusual winter storms here in Washington and I did not have to have any excuse to stay home, LOL. It was horrendous to be driving around so stayed home and have enjoyed the time to sew!! :D

Margo and Nancy love your quilt tops. They are all so different. We will have quite a diverse collection of the same quilt. Not 2 alike.

Whoo-Hoo! I finished my top too! I'm such a procrastinator, so this finished top (when it's supposed to be done) is a huge deal for me! I was 3 months behind at one time(they were the all the blocks that had berries and little pieces too!) I want to encourage anyone out there, you can do it...keep at it...it feels so good to have this one under my belt! You too, can finish this beautiful top!
I'm a new appliquer(sp? word?) I wasn't even sure I could applique when we started. What a great bunch of cheerleaders you all are, you gals have really made a difference. I didn't want to let my TQS buddies down....I was gonna get this top done!
I have to thank Camille for the inspiration for my borders!!
I like to send my top to the LongArm quilter...but that is me...so I'm going to get some batting tomorrow and start in on the quilting process!
Blessings,
Debbie S.
PS: Nancy, your quilt is stuning!!

Beautiful, Nancy! Very striking. Had to look up your "quilt on a roll" as had never heard of it! Interesting.
