I was looking for this yesterday because I really want to do this one. I love the theme but mine will be much bolder in color. Thanks for posting!

I like this a lot & even considered doing it. However, it would make me do some hand embroidery (which I'm not good at) & a lot of applique. It may be to much for me to tackle. I'll keep an eye on it & decide later. Do you know if we can download the months free all during the year or will they cost or be taken off after each month?
We live in the home of the free...because of the brave.

Thanks so much for posting this site as my favorites have not been working. I'd love to add it but for some reason my favorites do not want to add or delete. Ugh! I plan to do this BOM so keep me on task!
Jan 04, 2013, 01:07 PM
I just clicked on this site and there are 6 previous BOM's and it looks like you could still download any of them. And there's no charge/cost I can see.

That's definitely a dream for those that enjoy applique. Cute.
Jan 04, 2013, 02:26 PM
The past ones are still there so no big hurry I don't think! So just at your convenience!
Nicki, it takes a LOT of practice for the embroidery and I've not done needle turn applique but want to learn. Have a lot of trouble with an inside curve, like on a heart. Finally got the point to look almost right tho! Maybe just do one block and frame it!!! Am sure some of us can help you!

Who's gonna help me with the cm to inches conversion????
I will do the applique as machine applique. Still thinking about all this......
Jan 04, 2013, 04:05 PM
I was wondering about that too Lois. I remember being in 7th grade math class and the teacher telling us we didn't need to learn the metric system because it wasn't going to be used by anyone. Who knew I would need it for quilting! LOL
Jan 04, 2013, 05:42 PM
20 cm converts to 7.87401 inches and 58 cm converts to 22.83464 inches. I plan to cut my background 8 by 23 inches.

I am thinking on this one! I really like it, and if I ever get my sewing room, (kids move out) I would love to have it on the wall. Do you think it would look ok if I blanket stitched instead of applique? I suck at applique!!
Jan 04, 2013, 07:22 PM
Thanks Deb, Just keep "converting" those measurements for me! Now, I feel like I can get started. There has gotta be an "app" for that.

I love the look of this one . My favorit thing is Applique.
If any of you have questions, my second favorit thing is helping people learn what I know. I pop in and out here not a regular any more but I would be if I was needed. You can ask me any questions if you want to learn new methods too. I just learned a new one the other day . It makes some things so much easier. If you want to check me out to see if I know what I am talking about or am very good at it ask Quiltaholic,Nicklee. I think one of my blocks was shown to the girls at retreat of COF

I did the first block. I did fusible machine applique, not needle point applique. The pin cushion turned out ok, not completely happy with it. But I love the way the dressmakers dummy turned out.This message has been edited. Last edited by: headielamar,

I wasn't going to start this BUT I'm really liking that dummy. Such pretty colors and now ideas are running around in my head. Thanks for the picture!!

it turned out great! Love your choice of colors! Are you going to remind us every month?!
Jan 13, 2013, 08:25 PM
I am hoping Goaskmom will remind us each month. I am terrible at remembering to go get the pattern for the next month.
Jan 13, 2013, 08:52 PM
you did a great job. I love it.
Jan 13, 2013, 11:02 PM
I will try to remember this each month as I really want all the months too!! I have it on my blog so it will come up when she posts the new month, also wrote myself a note.
Jan 13, 2013, 11:50 PM
Headie...Sweet blocks! I'm still digging in my stash for some background fabrics and then will get started. Thanks for posting.
Feb 02, 2013, 02:35 AM
February block is posted - I am anxious to get to work on this one. Is anyone else doing it?
Feb 02, 2013, 07:23 AM
I am saving the patterns and would love to do them but I am not sure if I can find the time right now. Love yours Headielamar!
I saved this in my doc file and will make it once I get my UFO's caught up...my new yrs resolution was to NOT start anything new until most of UFO's were done....hope I don't break it...lol!!
Headie, that is VERY cute block!! Makes me want to start it NOW...but holding out!

Feb 05, 2013, 12:11 AM
Headie you are doing such a great job!!! I love your blocks... I have saved the patterns as well. Hoping I can start is in a couple of months....thanks for the inspiration.

Thank you for posting. Another great BOM I'll download and do at some time.
Headie ... those are great blocks.
Feb 05, 2013, 09:54 AM
OH I love this wall hanging!!!!! Your blocks are awesome!!!
BLESSED WITH THE BEST !!!!

I'm trying to figure out sz. to print,what sz is your dress makers dummy? mine looks awful big??? tx
BLESSED WITH THE BEST !!!!
Feb 05, 2013, 01:03 PM
Jacky - the dressmakers dummy and the pincushion combined are 8 1/2" x 23 1/2" so it is good sized. I just printed it out the way it came - didn't resize it.
Feb 05, 2013, 01:44 PM
TX guess I'm ok then.Love what you have done!!!!
BLESSED WITH THE BEST !!!!

I found a good chart at www.metric-conversions.org I found the cm to inches category and clicked on the words show table. A very complete chart comes up and that is what I have been using. Good luck.This message has been edited. Last edited by: chanlady22,

that does it, I have to go get ink for my printer.
Feb 07, 2013, 11:06 PM
I went to the website, that is very cute, but then I made the mistake of looking at the rest of them and love, love the Christmas..2008. What a dilemma! MOUNTAINLAURAL this IS all your fault.
Feb 07, 2013, 11:50 PM
RN55 you must be my sister. I love this one and printed out the patterns. I looked at all the other years also and the Christmas one was my next favorite one.
I looked at them also and liked several. I'm surprised that I have not seen this site before or that no one has mentioned this BOM in the past.
Mar 05, 2013, 03:52 PM
I started working on the March block last night. I am going to go ahead and do the I heart sewing banner underneath the sewing machine even though it isn't part of this month. That way the whole upper left corner will be done. I will post pictures soon.
