Flashback Tuesday: Pioneer Sampler 2009 BOM Project Original from BOMquilts.com

This quilt was a blast to make, especially with the fabric I chose for the quilt.  The fabric was sponsored by AbbiMays.com and I just had pure FUN making this baby quilt!

I also cut out all of the fabric for the blocks, along with the monthly patterns and presented them to everyone who wanted one in the small quilt group I attended.  At the end of the first year…and even the second and third year, I saw so many different variations made of the ladies who put that quilt together.  Some added wider sashing and borders to create a lap quilt.  Some didn’t add sashing at all (like in my quilt image below) but made up for the loss by adding bigger border pieces.  We had a small quilt fest at the community library and showed off our quilts and it was amazing how many different quilts were made from the exact same set of blocks that I used.  I was tickled pink!

      Flashback Tuesday: Calendar Quilt from BOMquilts.com

      What a fun and challenging quilt for my 2007 block of the month quilt design from BOMquilts.com was!  The design itself was a challenge because there were a lot of squares in the quilt.  It was also a challenge because we were living in our camper (two adults, four kids, two dogs).  All of my quilting supplies were stored under our bed so I’d get everything I needed out before my husband laid down.  Then I would set up my sewing, cutting and ironing stations from the dining area to the living area.  To say it was cramped quarters is putting it mildly!  But, I did it – and it is still beautiful!  Go ahead, have some fun with this Calendar Quilt from BOMquilts.com!

        A Box for Me, A Box for Me – Whatever Could it Be?

        I saw the FedEx truck pull up to my MIL’s last week, but since I knew I hadn’t ordered anything, I just figured it was for her.  On Saturday morning, my husband showed me a box that was addressed to me…but, I had no clue who it was from:

        IMG_2123

        I suppose I virtually know folks in Illinois, but that town didn’t stand out in my mind as anyone that I knew – and I had no clue who Diamond Marketing Solutions was nor who had their own shipping department!

        My husband cut the tape on the box for me, and this is what I saw:

        IMG_2124

        Whoa!  That’s a lot of paper packing – but still, it did not reveal a single clue as to who sent the box and what was in it.  I pulled out the paper to find this:

        IMG_2125

        Okay, now I had a hint as to what was in the box but I hadn’t ordered any Aurifil thread (I usually purchase mine a quilt shop that carries it)!  My husband then cut the tape on this envelope and out pops some beautiful variegated thread and white thread, 40 wt. for my longarm:

        The next thing to slide out of the box was this:

        IMG_2130

        Ah yes, I have quite a collection of these beautiful boxes!  When I opened that beautiful blue and white box – more thread popped out!

        IMG_2131

        And now the light bulb (or spool) finally comes into focus.  These threads are for Aurifil co-sponsoring my 2015 block of the month quilt at BOMquilts.com!   Look how gorgeous the threads are with the fabric!

        I’ll open an unknown box anytime if it has such beautimous fabric and/or thread in it!
