Blog Land BOMs and Mysteries


Does anyone out there have the pattern collector’s bug?  Well, the first of the month (and sometimes more often) is the time to check all the blogs I follow for their monthly free BOM / Mystery installment to download “just in case” I ever get the urge to make the pattern. 

I have not progressed to appliqué, and I admit, the one appliqué Sunbonnet Sue block I made “way back when” was quite an effort, but just love how appliqué looks, so I follow Erin Russek’s blog for Mimi’s Bloomers. I like her bright color palate.

I also am capturing the “Just Takes 2” blocks twice per month on . Sentimental Stitches.  I have kept up with all units, except Unit 7.  They are up to Unit 13 as of today.

I keep waiting for Bonnie Hunter’s next Mystery on Quiltville Blogspot Blogspot.  Meanwhile, she has tons of free patterns for scrappy quilts on her Quiltville website.

Sindy Rodenmayer puts out several patterns, some are monthly freebies on Fatcat.  Love those Funky Chickens she’s doing!   And my daughter is in love with Fiesta.

And the latest BOM, starting 7 July, is a Christmas Town Sampler (CTS) Blog Hop (three-some) Mystery from these ladies:

Judy Laquidara’s Patchwork Times

Sheryl Till’s Quilting Tizzy

Susan Neves’  Life On The Bayou

  1. I’m feeling like you are my sister from another mister! Althought I’m not quite as prolific as you – I try to sew a little bit each day but sometimes it’s only for 1/2 hour; such is the life of a working mother! I’m also going through the Quilt Academy Freshman year and am at about the same point you are – will be cutting the strips for Carrie’s Pariotic Log Cabin tonight. Just got my background fabric for the Christmas Town Sampler and waiting with baited breath to see what those clever ladies come up with! Just took a class with Bonnie Hunter in April – what a hoot she is! Because of her I have started doing “Leaders and Enders” it may take years but eventually I will have enought four patches and HSTs in purple/lavender/grape and neutrals to make a quilt for my bed. Maybe I need to stop reading blogs and use that time to sew more — not! Have a great day!
