Plain & Fancy BOM: Block 2 Done!

In my line of work, I often move from turning in one project to working on the next project that has to be turned in.  I had a very brief down time over the weekend where I was able to work on my Plain & Fancy BOM quilt last Friday night!

This is Block 1 from a while back.  Click here to read more about Block 1.

And here is Block 2.

IMG_7292

Pretty much, I used the same tricks as I did for making Block 1.  The tricks were described in my Block 1 post.

Even though I have felt like a loser for not being able to keep up with my BOM, it is nonetheless a great feeling being able to get another block finished for the quilt! It’s back to work-related quilting stuff for me!

If you are working on Plain & Fancy, I hope you have enjoyed the journey!  If you have yet to join in the fun, click here for a list of shops that are carrying the project, or you can see if Fons & Porter has filled up their spots for online signup here.

Thank you for stopping by!  Happy Monday, and Happy Week!

Came in the mail…

Hello Friends, this is a super quick post as it’s Tuesday when I work at my other “day” job (Mom/chauffeur for extra-curricular activities).  Look what came in the mail – the fabrics for my Plain & Fancy BOM quilt!  Some shops are doing it as a BOM program, while some are selling the complete kits.  I got the kit, but will be showing you my progress on a month-by-month basis.

The quilt sample that was shown at Quilt Market last Fall is now being shown at Quilt Events in Europe.  I wish there was a way I could tag along…

Interested to be my Plain & Fancy stitching buddy?  Click here to see if your local quilt shop is participating.  If not, many shops are taking online orders for mail-order as well.  I still haven’t decided whether to do the pieced or applique version for the sashing blocks.  What do you think?

Alrightie, Dear Friends!  I have to take off for now.  You have a lovely day, okay?

Plain & Fancy Block-of-the-Month (BOM) – have you signed up?

Plain & Fancy Block #1

Plain & Fancy Block #2

***

Hello Friends,  I have shared with you the Plain & Fancy quilt that I designed as a BOM program for Quilting Treasures/local quilt shops.

BOM_Alternate_High Res

The fabrics are from Quilting Treasures collections: Petals & Matrix

I received in my hands the complete list of participating quilt shops, and set out to search the web address of these quilt shops, to the best of my ability.

*The ones in bold consist of direct mention of Plain & Fancy BOM, and often times direct links for you to sign up.

*The rest are just web addresses of quilt shops.  Neither Quilting Treasures nor I have information on when Plain & Fancy BOM is starting at the respective shops.  So, I shall leave you to contact the appropriate shops to inquire.

*Starting in March, I will be making the quilt myself as the BOM progresses .  So, one day a month for nine months, I will share with you my progress.  I will also share about construction tips for better and more precise piecing (I hope!).  Pattern instructions are proprietary, so I will not be sharing them…. only my thoughts and tips.

*So check out the list below, and see if your local quilt shop is represented.  I would love to hear about your experiences with the shops listed below.  Please note that many shops do online BOM transactions, in case your local quilt shop isn’t participating.  In going through the list, I found quite a few I would like to visit…

Announcing PLAIN & FANCY: A Quilting Treasures BOM Program

Hello Friends, I am happy to share with you the news of an upcoming Quilting Treasures Block of the Month quilt program: Plain & Fancy.  So exciting!

BOM_Applique_High Res

Plain & Fancy, designed by yours truly, can be made with or without applique.  It is 82″ x 82″ finished.

BOM_Alternate_High Res

Plain & Fancy debuted at Houston Fall Quilt Market last weekend.

560825_523388931089276_1364706554_n[image source:  Quilting Treasures Facebook]

The following are the particulars of this BOM program:

1.  Release is scheduled for early next year (around February).  Mark in your calendar.

2.  Only available through quilt shops – the shops are starting to place their orders.  Check with your local quilt shops if they have placed their orders, or ask them to do so.  Contact your local quilt shops if you are interested in participating.

Here is a sneak peek of some of the fabrics that are included in the quilt!  These fabrics are GORGEOUS, or “go-jeous” as Miss Baby says it.

QTBOM

I hope you will get as excited as I am about this quilt when it gets closer to February!  When I look at this quilt, I am reminded of my dear quilting friend, JoyceO, whose work you have seen here.

I hope you have liked what you saw.  Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs to you all.
