11 blocks down, 1 to go!

I have eleven blocks finished out of twelve from the Fat Quarter Shop’s 2012 Designer Mystery BOM.

I am loving them so far!  These are not my usual colors, but I have grown to like them so much that I’m now “collecting” more of them – LOL!

I have looked forward to receiving my BOM kit each month, and I’m a little sad to see it end.  The Fat Quarter Shop is very generous with their fabric for each block.  So much so, that I have enough fabric left over to make a whole other quilt!

Their 2013 Designer Mystery BOM starts next month and it looks oh so pretty!


This BOM will be a row quilt which includes basket blocks, house blocks, star blocks and flower blocks.  The fabric is from the Avalon collection by Fig Tree for Moda.  I think I’ve just talked myself into joining!

Other BOM’s that I’ve been working on –  Sister’s Ten Modern BOM by Gen X Quilters (I’m all caught up!):

and my blocks from The Sugar Block Club BOM:

Maybe it’s just the polka dots, but I love this last one:

I have been busy in the garden and in the sewing room.  Two of my favorite places to be!  I hope you all have a wonderful week!

  1. Hi I just found your website and am so impressed with the colors and blocks that you have made. I am trying to find quilt BOM’s that just capture your attention. I recently came through an abusive marriage and have been doing what makes me happy and feel good about myself. Recently I was recently diagnosed with Auto Immune Disease – Lupus and a Severe case of Fibromyalisia. Sadly my hands are swelling and it is getting harder to sew. But I refuse to give up. My goals is to get one beautiful quilt done for each of my children. So I want to find 6 patterns that are stunning. I really love some of the colors and patterns you used. Do you develop your own patterns? If you do let me know what you have I would love to see more of your work.

  2. Love that BOM. I am starting mine this summer and hope to do one a day. I think you have convinced me to join the Avalon BOM such pretty fabrics!

  3. Hi Julie,

    Wow, what gorgeous blocks! I love all the great fabric selections and color combinations. This reminds me that I need to get back to the half a dozen or so unfinished quilt tops I have on my hands-lol.

    Your blog is a pleasure to browse. Have a great holiday weekend, Lisa

  4. Hi Julie,
    I’m sitting at Rome airport after a week’s holiday in the area, and, checking my mail I see you have been as busy as ever! What a lovely selection of bright and cheerful blocks you have made. The Fat Quarter shop Mystery Quilt will be beautiful when finished. I think I’ll join up for the 2013 one as I see they do international shipping. It sounds like a fun selection of blocks!
    Do you go for the finishing kit too, or use fabric from your stash?
    Happy sewing 🙂

  5. Beautiful blocks! They look so great, and I had no idea that they give you enough fabric to make a little something with the leftovers! Hmmm…great selling point!

  6. All of your blocks are so pretty! And, you make them look easy.
    Can’t wait to see the final 2012 Mystery Block finished!

  7. I love your BOM’s so much that I started the 2012 Fat Quarter Shop one! (Eleven came at once.) All your blocks look so good from all of your BOM’s… I may have to join some more myself! Looking forward to seeing more as you get them finished!
