Dude, where’s my BOM

February 2nd, 2010

D.O.N.E.  Done.
Not that I didn’t enjoy every minute of making Anne Sutton’s adorable A Tisket, A Tasket BOM blocks - I couldn’t wait to finish it and get it set and quilt it.  Setting is still in the audition progress as I’m playing with two setting ideas.  A fun dilemma to have, for sure.
Dude, where's my BOM - WIP
For an entire year I looked forward to the 5th of each month - and was sad when this last January 5th rolled around and there was nothing to download.  And then to my surprise (Gomer: Surprise.  Surprise.  Surprise!),  Anne started a brand new block of the month. Oh happy 5th day of the month! I loved seeing what all the other A Tisket, A Tasket Makers have been doing, too.

Dude, where's my BOM - January Dude, where's my BOM - February

Dude, where's my BOM - March Dude, where's my BOM - April

Dude, where's my BOM - May Dude, where's my BOM - June

Dude, where's my BOM - July Dude, where's my BOM - August

Dude, where's my BOM - September Dude, where's my BOM - October

Dude, where's my BOM - November Dude, where's my BOM - December

I had a big posting/making gap since June - my posts from the past: January, February, March, April and May & June. It feels so great to finally get caught up. Thank you thank you thank you, Anne!

Scenario I hope to never witness: The house is on fire.  All people and pets are out, as well as important documents, photographs, kids artwork, clothes and fabric. The fire marshal says there’s just enough time to run in a grab ONE quilt.  Once finished, this will no doubt be my fire quilt.

UPDATE: Pattern is available at Pattern available at: bunnyhilldesigns.com/patterns.html

  16. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    Oh Wow! I LOVE your rendition — It’s definitely my favorite of them all. LOVE those buttery yellow polkies, the pretty colors and the ric rac - oh, the ric rac!!!

    Now, just don’t go and do something goofy like use this cute quilt to cover up a scantily clad hubby — ’cause then we’d have to take it away from you!

  28. The fabulous Happy 2 Sew allegedly said:


  29. The fabulous Leslie Schmidt allegedly said:

    I didn’t think anyone could do better than Anne on this quilt, but I was sadly mistaken. Your sense of color and your ability to pick the right accents and little touches just make me say “awwww.” I wish I could add some witty little comment, but I’m too eaten up by jealousy! It’s beautiful.

  30. The fabulous Jill Majers allegedly said:

    I love your fabric choices, especially the background. The ric rac handles look so cute. Wonderful work!

  35. The fabulous Jen in NY allegedly said:

    Absolutely my favorite TAT quilt. I like it better than my own. I love October and July the most. No wonder why this is the fire quilt!!

  36. The fabulous Bridgette allegedly said:

    I squealed, hyperventilated, and fell out of my chair.The sheer cuteness of this is a bit overwhelming!

  37. The fabulous Jodi allegedly said:

    The CUTEST one I’ve seen so far. ;o)

  38. The fabulous Laurel allegedly said:

    Beautiful! I think it needs to be promoted to being rescued before clothing!

  39. The fabulous Carmen allegedly said:

  40. The fabulous Nancy allegedly said:

    Thank you for sharing. It is wonderful.
    Could you please tell me what the pancakes are saying, though?

    The pancakes say, “I’m a hot mess!” - it’s a bag I got at the
    Loyal Army store in Walnut Creek, CA. I love it! -m

  41. The fabulous brigette allegedly said:

    Monica, I’ve loved seeing your blocks and am sooo happy you finally finished all of them. How else was I going to shamelessly copy you if I had nothing to go by for the last six blocks???
    They’re amazingly wonderfully fantastically spectacular!!

  42. The fabulous jaybird allegedly said:

    love love love the blocks! now you make me want to start this BOM even more!

  45. The fabulous Ellen allegedly said:

    Inspiring, adorable, I could go on and on gushing. I just spent a hour looking at the photos in Flickr. Beautiful.

  46. The fabulous Brenda Kula allegedly said:

    I can sure see why! Beautiful doesn’t even describe it! I’ve often thought that. What if I didn’t have time to grab all of my quilts? There are memories stitched into each one.

  47. The fabulous Mary Ann allegedly said:

    Happy, cheerful…omg, I love it! Thanks for making us all drool on the monitor.

  48. The fabulous amylouwho allegedly said:

    If my house is on fire, I’m running to your house to take this quilt. Or something. It is so CUTE!! I think I might have to do the snowman quilt. I ♥ snowmen. And in red and aqua no less. :)

  49. The fabulous AnnieO allegedly said:

    Adorable! Anne’s pastels are sure soft and pretty but I really like your pops of brights and big prints! It’s going to be so cute you’ll want to SQUEEZE it.

    And what is that amazing looking mosaic-y thing on your design wall to the right of your tiskety taskety loveliness?

  55. The fabulous Tina allegedly said:

    OMG!! You have a great eye for color. I so wish I could have just a pinch of your talent. I’m doing the redwork version and can’t wait to get mine done too.

  56. The fabulous Sharon allegedly said:

    Your stuff is always so cute. And I love your studio…I have never really been into bright colors, but your studio is making me a fan of aqua!

    Linked to your site on my blog: see my website link above.

  57. The fabulous Mary allegedly said:

    I absolutely loved doing this BOM! But your blocks were by far my favorites, (including mine) because I made the mistake of using more than one background. Definitely save it in the fire.

  58. The fabulous Shawn allegedly said:

    Love your blocks Monica,they stitched up so pretty. I must finish mine soon…. Thanks for showing us!

  66. The fabulous aztel2000 allegedly said:

    Just adorable…I would run back into a burning house for this one too! My blocks are set together and bordered but now I have to figure out how to quilt it. I haven’t posted any of my blocks but it has been a lot of fun seeing all the other versions. I always looked forward to seeing your blocks because they are what I wished I had done–guess I could make another one–NOT! And I love your little ghost!

  67. The fabulous Marsha allegedly said:

    I just love the finished blocks! I invite you to enter my Valentine giveaway. You could win a pink, bead-knitted purse, hand-knit by me, with a chocolate bar charm.


  68. The fabulous tina allegedly said:

    Looks SO fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to make one. I almost promise not to put it at the end of the Make Me List. First I have to wrangle back my creative space. Got any dynamite???? Adult children, I’m discovering, are most tenacious!

  69. The fabulous Bonny allegedly said:

    Oh I love the way you used rick rack for the basket handles … very smart! Your colors are fabulous!

  70. The fabulous Elizabeth allegedly said:

  73. The fabulous ursula allegedly said:

    oh man! it that ever cute!

  74. The fabulous Sharrieboberry allegedly said:

    Just stopping by for a colorful “pick-me-up” and visiting your quilt pic. So happy! So fresh and pretty!

    Did you use a felt for some of the items in or around the basket? If so, what kind of felt and did you pre-wash it?

    I’m working on an applique quilt and trying to decide if I could use felt on it. I guess, technically, one can do whatever one wants. But I was wondering about washing and the after effects. Thanks!


      Thank you for your kind words, Sharrie! I used a wool/acrylic blend felt. I think it’s 35% wool/65% acrylic. I don’t ever prewash - wool, fabric… nothing - everything is unwashed. Since this is a wall quilt, I don’t ever plan on washing it - so I’m not concerned about shrinkage (insert George Costanza joke here)

  75. The fabulous Patti allegedly said:

    This quilt is just adorable. I do not quilt (future dream of mine, though) but, I do have lots of paper for cardmaking. I just made my own July Square by looking at your picture. I used paper, buttons, rickrack, and lace to make my own version. Thank you sooooo much for posting this beautiful quilt for all of us to enjoy and be inspired by. I feel very crafty today - and blessed, too!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
