This definitely deserves a drum roll……..the 2015 (FREE!) block of the month quilt is live at BOMquilts.com!  This quilt would not have been possible without my co-sponsors, AbbiMays.com and Aurifil threads.  I bow to you my favorite fabric pusher and my favorite thread pusher!

    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:

      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:

      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!

      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!

        Flashback Tuesday: Walk in the Cottagewoods Free Pattern from BOMquilts.com

        This BOM Big Block Quilt was delivered in four (4) parts in 2006.  Fall colors were perfect for a “Walk in the Cottagewoods.”

          2015 Block of the Month Quilt Design for BOMquilts.com is in the House!

          My 2015 block of the month quilt for BOMquilts.com has been designed and I have the fabric for it, sponsored by Abbi May’s Fabric Shop.  All I’m lacking is the super-de-dupter Aurifil thread to reach me from Italy.  I am excited about this new design and will have it made before the BOM even starts in January 2015.  The fabric is from the Veracruz line and it is bright and bold – just perfect for this quilt project!

          I merged some modern block designs with some tried-and-true classic block designs to create “Modern Framed Classics.”  Here are a couple of photos of the blocks:
