Some BOMs

If you like traditional blocks and especially blocks about women who made a difference, then you might like the Grandmothers Choice BOM.  For 49 weeks, 8" block patterns will be featured along with a great story about the block and the right to vote for women.  Green, white and purple were adapted as the suffrage movements's colors in New England, a cheddar yellow was most of America's color and green, gold and white was Australia's.  This blog is just a treasure of information so spend some time there and you'll really appreciate one of our most important freedoms.

There is just a huge amount of projects at Angie's Bits n Pieces and there are a few BOM going at once. Click on the BOM and you will find three going for 2013, Animal Babies, Nana's Kitchen and a really sweet Kokeshi Dolls.

Erin Russek at One Piece at a Time is starting a beautiful BOM called Jingle Belle and the first installment is out.  It is going to be beautiful just from the sample of that block.

Tracee Doran is going to make 36 quilts in one year and give them away to 36 special people.  You will want to read her quilt stories and watch her progress.

Ewe's Quilting has a BOM from last, so all you sheep and wool lovers, take a peek.  They are kinda cute.

If you love Dresden Plates, you should check out the "Dare to Dresden" blog hop. There are links to 100 bloggers who are featuring their Dresden plates and many different ideas for a favorite block.
