Goose on the Loose :: Block 11 from Alamosa Quilter

I'm calling the block for this month Pinwheel Geese.

This is what you need to make one.

From scrap fabric:
*(2) 5.5" squares
(4) 2.5" by 4.5" rectangles (same fabric or at least same color)
(4) 2.5" by 6.5" rectangles 

From light background fabric:
*(8) 3" squares
(4) 2.5" squares

From dark background fabric:
(4) 2.5" squares

*If you have some extra flying geese units that you made previously you can omit the starred fabrics and just use those. You'll need eight of them that you can trim to 2.5 ...

FREE 2017 BOM {Diamond Hill} from Craft Gossip

Newsy. Esther of Esther’s Blog launched her 2017 BOM this week where participants will make a Diamond Hill quilt. Best news is it’s FREE. And if you’re familiar with some of her past projects, like Oma’s Blues, then you know her patterns are top-notch. Of Diamond Hill she explains,

In this quilt you’ll find a satisfying balance of both applique and piecing which will keep you busy for seven months. I’ve opted for the hopelessly romantic theme of cream, pink and green because, why not?

Seven months will go by in a flash, so ...

A New Sampler Quilt. from Jan's Quilts

My quilt guild, The Temecula Valley MQG is starting a Block of the Month program this year.  The goal is two-fold; first to make quilt blocks to be donated to our Charity Quilt Committee and the second goal is to have the BOM be a skill builder.  We're encouraging members to make another block or more each month for their own Sampler Quilt.

Each month a member will introduce a 12 inch BOM, it'll be posted on the TVMQG blog with a tutorial.  This is all new for us, but it should be fun.

Here is the fabric ...

Celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary with The Canadian Sampler from Quilt Matters

I am very excited to share with you a project I'm participating in with 19 other Canadian designers -- The Canadian Sampler. Sew Sisters Quilt Shop asked us each to design a block to celebrate Canada's sesquicentennial as part of a Block of the Month (BOM) Club for 2017. It didn't even take me two seconds so say, "Hell ya!"

Here is the finished quilt. Didn't they do a great job laying out all the different blocks?

You don't have to lay yours out this way, of course -- you can lay it out any way you ...

182 Day Solstice Challenge Off to Good Start from Mountain Quiltworks

With the new year comes new projects. It's a rule! So, I have chosen three projects to work on with my online quilting community. The first is the Mighty Lucky Quilting Club. This group aims to challenge my brain to 'think' about what I'm doing as I piece and quilt. Very excited as I get started with the first month's segment hosted by Lucky Spool Media. Each month the presenter is a

2016 Year In Review (Quilts & Stuff) from Pointless Quilter

But first, look at this.  This is the Bonnie Hunter 2016 annual mystery quilt top (not quilted yet)

 And the first block of the Quilt Show's Block of the Moth.
I went to a friends to sew for 4 days over the new year and I got a lot accomplished.  More that what is above.  But no pictures of those other things.  It was a great weekend.  My friend Janice is a wonderful hostess and Elaine and I both enjoyed all her wonderful recipes she made for us.

I did finally get my 2016 Quilts montage done.   Here are ...

BOM TENTACIONES V from Hecho Por Luz

La segunda pieza del primer bloque también acabada, me propuse hacer dos cada mes y de momento voy cumpliendo, ahora ya a por la tercera y cuarta de este mes.

Esta pieza es con la técnica de bordado, intenté hacerla con un needle punch que me compré expresamente para esto pero ha sido un desastre, no sé si soy yo que no sé utilizarlo pero los puntos se me iban y desistí, así que cogí aguja e hilo y bordé de manera tradicional con punto atrás.

Creo que usaré pinturas para tela y así quedará bien rematado, ya os enseñaré ...

Quilt Doodle BOM ~ A Traditional Mystery! from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

I have a new BOM for 2017. It's going to be fun to follow along. I have decided it's time to switch things up a bit and step away from a holiday quilt and make one that can be left out all year round. So for this year we will make a more traditional quilt using some 'traditional' fabrics. I will be using some 1930 reproductions for mine. It will be a bright and happy quilt that reminds me of the farm and grandma's house. To get ready for this quilt I have included a list of ...

End of the Year Reflections from Snuggles Quilts

So it's almost time to welcome the new year. This usually gets me thinking about what I have done in the year that's about to end and what I want to do in the coming year. It's fun to see if what you wanted to do over the year ..... actually happened! We are creatures of habit, so we plan even if we know we probably won't get half of it done. Besides..... planning builds excitement and anticipation for the year to come.

So ..... here's a few things I was very proud of sharing with you ...

Ya he acabado mi primera pieza del primer bloque, ¡qué contenta estoy! no solo por el resultado que claro se podría mejorar sino porque es mi primera pieza de verdad en esto de quilts, colchas, etc.

Ahora tengo muchas ganas de empezar la segunda pieza, es bordado y creo que lo acabaré pronto porque no es muy complicado, bueno el resultado de la primera pieza "La Pera" es este y puedo decir que está finiquitada.

Por si alguna no lo sabe, esta pieza forma parte del BOM TENTACIONES de Telas y Tentaciones

Learning Humility from Elaine Adair Pieces

This was our  BOM (block of the month) for November Guild meeting, over a month ago.  Despite it being "easy",  and I have been quilting for over 35 years, and feeling a little bit "overqualified" at having to make such an "easy" 12 inch block,  it took me 4 tries to get it right!  Some of the problems were fabric selection, but others were simply putting the right pieces in the right places.  Good Grief! Where were my brains?

Finally, after the 4th try, it was done and correct !  I was so relieved to be DONE with it and snapped ...

Our New Block of the Month Programs from The Intrepid Thread

Hi Everyone,

I bet you were wondering when we were going to announce the new Block of the Month programs for 2017. Just like last year I have been searching high and low for the perfect program and have decided to go with one pre-built BOM and two that I made up myself... Also I might have a 4th up my sleeve but I have to get the pattern in my hands first to make sure it is workable.... that one will remain TBA for now.

First We have the Urbanologie BOM created by Sew Kind Of Wonderful to use ...

WIP :: Festival of Stars from Alamosa Quilter

I've been working for a few weeks on a BOM that I will be running through my shop. The pattern is called Festival of Stars. I have all of the star blocks made.

This is not a beginner project! It has been a fun challenge for me to work on something that isn't designed as a "quilt in a day" type project.

There are some small square in a square blocks that float between the stars and a very interesting sashing between the columns still to do. I hope to have the top completed soon so we can ...
