Here's the thing ...

I won't ever get caught up on BOMs because Kimberly at The Fat Quarter Shop keeps coming up with new ones!

These five are tempting me now:

A Vintage Christmas by Anne Sutton - I get her Christmas quilt every year, and although I'm a bit behind, I'm sure not going to let that stop me from continuing that tradition! Glace fabric ... I'm in!

Green Piece - this one has wool applique, and I'm going to definitely do it! My friend, Sheila, has been pestering me about working with wool. She's an expert, and I expect her to give me tips along the way! Gorgeous colors in this quilt!

Bespoke Blooms - a Robyn Pandolph design. Those who know me well know that I'm an RP junkie! I really do like the blocks in this quilt. The very first applique I ever did was an RP BOM, Botanika, and I was hooked!

2009 Designer Mystery BOM -- out of GLACE fabric! I loved doing the 2008 mystery, so I'm in like Flynn on this one!

Pennsylvania Dutch - out of my favorite Minnick & Simpson Wiscasset fabric! Love my patriotic colors! This one is brand-new, just hit The Fat Quarter Shop site! Oh, geez, I hope I wasn't the first one who signed up for it!!

Anyway, I just thought I'd take stock of what I'm looking at for the coming year. Looks like I'll be having grand BOM weekends!!!!!

Green Piece is very tempting, but I promised myself no more BOMs! Are you going to join any of them?

Nan said...

I've seen those BOMs and am trying hard NOT to spend $$$. You are such a temptress!

That's why I'm not getting all of my BOM's done either. I still have one using Dandelion Girl fabrics that I haven't even started. After I saw this blog entry, I went to the FQS and signed up for the Pennsylvania Dutch.
