2018 BOW / BOM Plans

So the new BOW / BOM groups are starting their new challenges, since I have some time this winter I am going to start strong, but not too strong!!!

My goal is to use fabric I have – for the most part, I may have to buy some filler/background fabric to fill in the blanks, but I really want to push myself to really use my stash of fabrics.

  • NQC Quilt Block Challenge – this is a facebook group and the home to the Snowy Day challenge from last year. They again are doing a 9 block, 16″, weekly quilt top. So this should be quick – the hardest part for me will be the fabric matchups.  I have something in my head for this one, I hope it works out – it could be so cool!!!! IMHO
  • Nancy Zieman – She’s Our Star: 2018 Block of the Month – Nancy passed away quickly after a second diagnosis of cancer and they are doing this in her honor. Not sure if I’m going to order her fabric or do it with some of my stash – I’m on a tight budget this month.
  • The Mn Quilters group has a BOM going too, but that costs money to do and I would rather spend my craft budget on fabric rather than membership so I’m going to pass on that one this year.

  • In the spirit of using what I have, I also have a Forest Friends & Lepidoptera kit that have just been sitting there since I bought them – yes, they are covered with a layer of white dust – but then with 3 parrots in the house, everything is covered in white dust here!  😉 
  • I have one other, non-quilting project that I’m going to get caught up on and that’s the scarpbook pages that are half done – I really need to at least finish the ones I have started – let alone the hundreds of photos I haven’t started yet.

So, that’s the plan Stan!
