BOMs, Challenges and Sew-Alongs

There are lots of quilting blogs out there and many offer Block Of the Month programs. Here are a few of my current favorites.

Bloggers BOM - each month a different designer will post a blog with their 12 inch block design and by October 2012 you will have enough blocks to make a quilt. I haven't started this one yet, but I plan to catch up by the first of the year.

Mystery Table Runner BOM by Springwater Designs. This is a short BOM... only three months... with only three blocks to make, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get this done!

Christmas Red and White Blocks by Quilting Gallery - each Friday a different designer will post a blog with their design for an 8.5 inch block and if you keep up you will have a new red and white quilt for Christmas. I just wish I could find my red/white fabric to get started on this one... I may just have to go buy some more!

Crumb Along With Me by Jo's Country Junction... After posting a picture of a Crumb Quilt that she made she was innundated with questions for a pattern. Follow along as she tells us how to make our own crumb quilt.

My Tweets BOM by Erin Russek of One Piece At A Time is doing an applique BOM ...I could only hope to find enough time for this beautiful applique quilt. I'm just following along to see the progress and end result.

I love Civil War fabrics and Barbara Brackman does this weekly posting of blocks and some history surrounding the design that is very interesting. This one is definitely on my want to do list.

This Birdie Stitches BOM by Little Miss Shabby involves embroidering blocks before piecing them into a quilt.

Here is a mini Christmas Sew-Along by Sew Happy Me.

I am participating in the the Cheddar Challenge by Bonnie Hunter

and a Sew Along by Pat Sloan Hurry... the finish date has been extended to Oct 25, so there is still time to complete your project!
