WELCOME TO THE 2013 HGTV FORUM BLOCK OF THE MONTH!
The theme this year is Secrets
SavedSinnr and I (CBQ) are 'egg'-cited and thrilled to be working with you on the BOM this year!
A Bit of Background......
*ALL board members are welcome to join us! There is no commitment or sign-up. Just join in the fun by posting on this thread.
*You are not swapping, exchanging or anything else, just make the block we post on the first of each month; show us a photo of your work, and be entered into a drawing for a wonderful prize.
* Each month, we will be doing a block from Quilter's Cache.
* In the intro post, found here intro post
we explained the extra blocks needed to make a larger quilt. These blocks are totally optional and secret! We will remind you each month to make your secret block.
Credit: Marcia Hohn has graciously said we can use blocks from The Quilter's Cache again this year. Please read her Terms and Conditions at: http://www.quilterscache.com/. And follow the below guideline. "Should photographs of items made from Original designs be posted on your group website, they should also be clearly marked with the name of the pattern As I have it named, and that it is from The Quilter's Cache/Marcia Hohn." (Since you'll post your pictures in this thread, you will be covered by that statement.)
This year we will again challenge you to stretch your skills, ideas and creativity, while sewing and even trying new block patterns as well as methods. We are here to help! Use this thread to post your questions, problems anything related to the BOM~ and we will try to answer them for you.
Now ... without further clucking ... HERE'S the JULY BLOCK ~~

HGTV BOM! I'm SEW 'EGG'-cited!!
That was early! I feel so disconnected from the board- we have literally bought a house and are in the process of moving (loading a truck tomorrow!) out of state within the last 3 weeks. Packing a house my family has lived in for 25 years has been hard, but the move will be for the best because no mortgage. Hard leaving a child hood home (moved here when I just turned 3).
ok I am getting scared that this is 2 easy ones in a row. June was easy July is easy...what do you all have in store for us in August? Love this block! cannot wait to get home to work on it.
Hmmmm! I should be able to do that block! Flying geese aren't my friend, usually, but practice makes almost perfect! I like the choice you made Chicks!
Quilter Jen, sorry this is a sad time for you leaving your childhood home. It is hard with change and I hope the move and settling in go good for you.
Good luck with your move Jen. Just printed the instructions and will think about what fabric I would like to use. CQB, love the way yours turned out. Thanks for posting. Sue
Quilter Jen, good luck with the move. You'll always have memories (and I hope photos) to cherish of the childhood home.
I printed out the pattern for this month, now when I get home tonight I'll see about picking the fabrics. Not sure if I have much red or blue in my stash of FQ's I've been using for this quilt. I did use a red in one of the earlier blocks but I'm trying to use each on only once. Maybe I have another red. I do like CBQ's green one too.
In order to see the rainbow, first you must endure the rain.
LOL RN55 you are one sharp cookie!! We thought since these seem to be the two busiest months of the year, we'd give y'all a little break.
Good luck with your move Jen! Hope you make lots of wonderful new memories in your new home!
ahha I knew it! look out August and September!
Hearing that makes me nervous!
Hey! I have a lot going on in August too!
Just thought I would mention that!!
oh wow if we all tell them our august is busy think they will take it easy on us again?
I think that laugh says it all! I can visualize her cracking a whip at the same time!! LOL!
I think we are doomed!
I'm printing off the directions now. It probably will take me a little time to sew it together, cause I have to find some fabric,that will look sincere in this block.
I am behind on this; I think the last block I finished was April. I need to get caught up before the blocks start getting harder.
Too hot to play outside, so I sewed my block today.
StinMt - I love the center of your block. the rest is really great also.
I have the directions printed out and maybe I will get to them tonight or tomorrow.
Some mighty perty blocks this month! Y'all are crackin me up being scared because the Crazy chick is taking it easy on ya .... and well you should be
Anyway, we had 17 finishers last month .... CONGRATS to all the finishers~

2013 ... it's MY YEAR for sewing!
I can't believe I won! I will send you my address tonight. 9 hour road trip to idaho and our new house today and we are leaving at 3:30- in a couple of hours so I am supposed to be sleeping but it is too hot- 82 degrees at 1 am- so I decided to check the board. Glad I don't have to drive just navigate.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Quilter Jen,
Congrats Jen! Just think, you already know you will have mail at the new house! Good luck with the move!
Beautiful block ST! Love the embroidery in the center!
Quilter Jen, Congratulations! How nice that you won and will have a prize at the new home! It will give you a lift!
Here's mine. I thought I had better get it done before more company shows up.

congratulations Quilter Jen.

Congrat's Quilter Jen on being the winner for June. Hope your road trip is going well. That will be a long ride. STinMT- love your center block- the whole block looks great. Quilthappy- your red and black with the white is very striking and Alex, love your block too. I still have not picked out my colors yet. Sue
Alex, so pretty! Love the candy canes in the middle!
I have my fabric sitting out and just need to get myself going on getting this block done.
We leave for a camping family reunion next Sat. This week will be busy getting ready but I would like to get the block done before we leave.
Congrats Quilter Jen on being the winner.
I have my block finished...just need to get a picture of it.
My blocks are done for this month.
Beautiful block so far! Alexemmarose- I like how you used the focus fabric in the middle. Makes the block pop!
I finally got back to the board... it has been a long 3 weeks since my teaching job ended on June 12. Drove to Idaho (10 hours) to house hunt, drove back (10 hours), packed our house in 111 degree heat (we rented a trailer and the only day available we could afford), then on Wednesday drove back to Idaho (10 hours) with both our cars. Since then it has been title company, utilities, cleaning (the last owners left the house filthy), painting, etc. If it wasn't 4 in the morning, we would be painting and cleaning some more
Hopefully I will have access to my machine so I can do the July block, but we shall see. I did order some new tables to sew and cut fabric on- got some good deals on Amazon that were "used" but new, just dented packaging.
Thanks for all the well wishes for being the winner! Will PM my new address shortly.
Wow! Handie! Your blocks are lovely and don't even look like they came from the same pattern! Interesting!
Handie, very nice job on both your blocks. They do look like a different pattern, but I know it is not. Love it. I completed mine today. Using Stonehenge fabric of yellow, cream and brown. Sue
Handie, like both your blocks! Very nice and as was said... they look like they each were from a different pattern.
sue, nice block and I do love the fabric you're using.
I finished mine today. My friend, Will Quilt for Chocolate will post it soon, or tomorrow!
So glad I got it done before leaving for the family camping reunion!
Here's Malou's block!
Very nice blocks so far. Will work on mine this Friday, open sew at our lqs.
Thanks WQFC for posting my block!
Malou, nice R/W/B block. All the blocks are looking good. Sue
I've been a little busy
Question should I be putting this thing together already?
I just love those colors!
I am waiting to get them all done to lay them out as the whole quilt.
All of the blocks look wonderful. Love all of the color choices. I have got to get back involved and get caught up. I've just had so much of life get in the way. I need to prioritize! Quilting first!!!! You all are an inspiration!
J Lu, love that print fabric! I know we've seen it before in other blocks and it is beautiful!
Thanks sue, glad you like my block!
LBlue, you can catch up! You're right... quilting first!!
I'm waiting, too, until all the blocks are done just so I can see about placement and balance. Don't know if that will work??!!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Malou,
I have loved the blocks that I've seen so far. I did mine this weekend before I saw the other ones! I especially like the ones that have a different fabric in the centers. But, here's mine:
I like it.
I have had all my setting blocks done since early in the year, but waiting on putting the rows together for color placement. I also know I want to redo a block that the colors aren't playing nicely with the others (not jewel tone enough).
Hoping to have my sewing machine unpacked so I can have my July block done in time.
I like it too WQFC! I like how the two blues work together and the red adds that pop! Nice block!
Hope you manage to get your machine set up and going Jen!
