2014 Block of the Month for BOMquilts.com

I have been working on my 2014 block of the month quilt throughout the week and this weekend.  The EQ7 image of it is awful.  It does not show the true fabric colors of the quilt so I felt compelled to put the quilt together so my BOMquilts.com viewing audience has a much truer photograph of the quilt.

All 12 blocks completed

Sashing and borders are fussy-cut and the binding is trimmed to size

I plan on finishing the final border of the quilt tomorrow so I can get the quilt listed at BOMquilts.com.  Fun quilt, very simple for beginning quilters and a great quilt to make for more advanced quilters who want to hone their skills.

Get ready, it’s almost time to launch the introductory instructions and list the fabric and thread requirements!  And the sponsors for this 2014 block of the month quilt are AbbiMays.com (fabric) and Aurifil (thread).

    BOMquilts.com 2014 Block of the Month Quilt

    Once I completed my 2013 BOMquilts.com’s “Pendleton Inspired” quilt, I was itching to get started on my 2014 “He Loves Me, He Loves me Not” block of the month quilt for BOMquilts.com!

    As a recap, the fabric we decided on is “He Still Loves Me” designed by Jackie Robinson for Benartex and AbbiMays.com once again is the co-sponsor of this block of the month quilt.  These are the fabrics:

    Last week, I finally received the thread for this block of the month quilt, flown in and dropped off on the porch straight from Italy (kind of) as the 2014 block of the month quilt is co-sponsored by Aurifil threads.  These are the threads to be used in this quilt:

    Over the weekend, I just could NOT stand it anymore and had to put one of the blocks for the block of the month quilt together.  Call me silly but that once that first block is completed, there is a big collective sigh that the pattern I wrote and the needle position on my sewing machine are in perfect harmony.  Here is the first block for the “He Loves Me, He Loves me Not” 2014 block of the month quilt at BOMquilts.com:

    Block1

    Although this is the easiest block to make for this quilt, I’m loving the colors and the combinations of fabrics for the subsequent blocks.  And then I smile…stroke the block a bit…share the photo a few more times…and then get busy with the other 11 quilt blocks!

      “Pendleton Inspired” Going Into the Home Stretch

      My “Pendleton Inspired” 2013 block of the month quilt at BOMquilts.com is nearing the end.  What a fun quilt to work on, and the fabric is so luscious!

      Unfortunately, I got behind early in the game and it took a few months for me to catch up with my blocks.  But now?  All 12 of the blocks are completed, though the instructions for the final block will not be posted until January 22nd.

      I have also put the entire quilt together and let me just say, it’s fanquiltastic!  It will definitely keep someone warm on a cold night, with the quilt to snuggle with and a delicious cup of hot cocoa.

      Let me also take this time to thank the co-sponsors of this quilt – AbbiMays.com and Aurifil threads.  Go ahead, check out what they have to offer to show them some love!

      Keep watching for Block 12 and the final instructions at BOMquilts.com – you never know, they may show up earlier than expected!

              Documenting a Quilt with Photography

              I am pretty retentive when it comes to photographing my quilts – whether I am making one from someone else’s pattern or one of my own designs.  I try to take a picture of each block that goes into a traditional block quilt (or the finished project if it’s not traditional blocks).  As I was searching for a quilt I made a number of years ago, I realized I had some of block photographs and thought I’d have my own little show n’tell with quilts that I made in 2004.  Hope you enjoy the journey with me – and if you click on the blocks, you will see the quilt that the block goes with at BOMQuilts.com:

              These definitely weren’t all that I made in 2004, but it’s a start!  I think I’ll take some time to put some pages together for myself with photos of the quilt blocks and the finished quilts.  How do YOU document all of the quilts that you take?
