“Favorites” BOM #3 — Participants Share

First of all, I am announcing the winner of a quilting magazine. Mary Lish, “come on down!” Mary successfully completed BOM #2 in March and commented “Done” on the 31st. She will receive the Feb./Mar. issue of Quick + Easy Quilts which contains instructions for my charm pack friendly “Paddle Star” table runner. Congrats, Mary!

Secondly, thanks for all the kind comments for my “Brown-Eyed Susans” quilt recently published in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting. Spring and summer road trips are the best occasion for trying your hand at EPP. If you hand stitch all the rosettes while on vacation, you can machine stitch them to background squares once you are home again.

BOM #3: Pictures of “Weathervane” variation and “Ribbon Star” are rolling in. Would you like to be inspired by color and fabric choice of fellow participants?

Helga lost no time in making her blocks; she sent me a picture on April 1st, the day the instructions were posted on the “Favorites BOM QAL” page of this blog!

Karen attends the BOM monthly meet-ups at Sew There! Quilts and More in Angier, NC. I am loving her tan and blue fabrics. Wonderful work, Karen!

Marianne also sent a picture of her blocks in maroon and orange/tan. Her words of encouragement, “These were fun to make!”

Joan has finished the “Weathervane” variation and will soon find time for “Ribbon Star.” The subtle shading of the two gray fabrics in the pentagon shapes is lovely.

Here’s hoping you are enjoying spring sunshine and finding time to sew today! If you are new to the blog and wish to join the free Block of the Month Quilt Along, click on “Favorites BOM QAL” in the menu. It’s never too late to join the fun; the pace is not too strenuous.

  1. Today I am going to at least choose the colors for my blocks, I am in between rounds of the sewing bee and would like to have all my BOMs for April finished. The show and tell is great inspiration. πŸ˜€
