I am really enjoying The Quilt Show web site - are any of you familiar with it? Great information, videos, classes, etc. It does cost to join, but I thought it worth it.
They have BOM's (Block of the Month) starting for 2012, and complete patterns from previous years. Once you are a member, the BOM patterns are free. I'm gong to make the 2012 one, in the bright colors for my daughter, and another one in greens, blues, purple & off white for me! You may not be able to see the detail in the pictures below, but you can see how much fun they will be to make! I'm using up some batiks I've had in my stash for years!
I've never done a BOM before, it'll be interesting to have to wait for the new section each month -- will teach me some patience :)
