BOMs and BOWs

1809w BOMs and BOWs
Have you ever done a BOM or a BOW? That’s a Block Of the Month, or Block Of the Week…
In January, Jeanne Kaye our own energizer bunny, showed us her 2018 BOW quilt- all finished! Being the speedy quilter she is, she couldn’t bear to sew only one block per week, for the entire year, (the same block each week) so she finished it up in jig time, adding heart appliqués to the snowball blocks. This sew along is organized by Darlene D’Eon of A Needle Pulling Thread quilt shop in Digby. NS.

Fat%2BCat%2BBOM BOMs and BOWs

Gail M. sent a link a few weeks ago for a free Christmas BOM called Gnome for the Holidays (shown at left.) The patterns are posted on the first of each month and remain free to download for that month. (If you miss a month, you can purchase the block.) So if you were “on the fence” you’d better act quickly for the first free block pattern will only be available for one more day.. Click here:

If you’re interested in a sampler blocks style of BOW, the Temecula Quilt Company is hosting an 1880 Sampler BOW Sew Along – block instructions are posted each Friday, and the blocks are 4″ finished. The finished sampler will be roughly 40″ x 48″. It began on Feb. 2, so you only have four blocks to catch up on! I’m thinking of doing this one. Anyone care to join me? Click here for the first five posts, most recent is first, so scroll down for the first post which explains the project.

Wild%2BLife%2BBlog%2BPic BOMs and BOWs

It’s a Wild Life BOM has various quilters designing a block for their designated month, beginning in February. Again, hustle to get the February pattern (a maple leaf block.) 

Just received my Fabricville flyer…  March is Quilting Month, and all quilting accessories will be on sale, 25-40% off, March 5-27. This includes Olfa and Clover products, also Gütermann threads will be 40% off… Just sayin’…

Happy Sewing….
