Pin It

Thought it would be fun to have a page to display the appliqué blocks of the month, to encourage those of you who have made blocks, to share pictures of them with us on this page.  Look forward to seeing many more through the coming months.  If you want to be anonymous, or just have your first name listed, I can do that, too.

Jennifer finished all twelve blocks and shared her accomplishment with us, because she is ready to put the top together.  She teaches Math and summer is her time to quilt, hopefully we will be featuring the completed top soon! What lovely blocks!!jennifersblks

Jennifer is sharing the January and February blocks!  Anyone else out there, just leave a message and I will be contacting you!jennifersbom
Here are Gene’s blocks, for a beginner she is doing very well! Here I thought I would be ahead of everyone and it seems although I am running, I’m not catching up!lindas2

 

 Val sent me a picture of her two 2012 Oma’s Cupboard blocks, hope there are more to come from her and others, so I sent her the Assembly Instructions.valsphoto

 

Here are Libby’s 2011 Block of the Month blocks.  She told me that she made all the base blocks ahead of time, so as the blocks were posted each month, she could appliqué them.  Almost looks like a quilt, with all the blocks laid out, so I couldn’t resist joining them with a sashing.libbysquilt

 

Here is a quilt from Sandy Wyngard using the blocks that were posted in 2009.  I am posting what she had to say about the quilt:

This is Dottie Olsons’ door quilt…four of the blocks were done by her…before she lost her eyesight to sew…two of the blocks..pink flowers and Iris were done by me,( needle turn applique..by hand). I assembled the quilt and machine quilted it and used a different technique to bind it ..completely by machine.This is Dottie Olsons' door quilt...four of the blocks were done by her...before she lost her eyesight to sew...two of the blocks..pink flowers and Iris were done by  me,( needle turn applique..by hand).

These are the other four blocks I have done for my quilt..I have a few more to do…I was hoping to get a 9 block quilt ..we will see since I gave two blocks to my friend.  Some of the blocks have been embellished with colonial knots, embroider and beads. I still have some embellishment to do to the other two blocks.

Here is Mandy’s stunning quilt made with Blocks of the Month!  It was so exciting to receive this picture of all her hard work. She said it made her think of stained glass. Thank you Mandy for sharing it with us!

    ARe you still doing free boms for newsletter members?? Don’t remember getting one lately and I miss them!! Thanks

    • bdieges says:

      No, I thought I was going to do a 2013 block, but have decided to take a break, have been doing them for over 10 years. If you missed any blocks from 2012 they are available on Craftsy. Click on the link in the side bar, to take you to my site on Craftsy. I will be putting tutorials in the blog from time to time.

  2. Nancy Swift says:

    Hi! I really like Oma’s Cupboard but would like to find out the cost of the CD. I can’t find a way to buy or get pricing ffor this quilt.

    Thanks!

  3. Emmy says:

    I have a question about buying your CDs for applique. It says on the page $32.50 for the collection, is that all of them from 2002 up to 2012? Thank you so much. Emmy

    • bdieges says:

      It does not include 2012, which was Oma’s Cupboard. It does include Stars ‘n’ Flowers and the Flower Lattice Quilt.

  4. Linda Mineck says:

    Hi Barbara, Thank you so much for the wonderful applique BOM. I enjoy handwork so much and your designs are wonderful and do-able. I have been keeping up with your latest BOM and would like to send you pictues of the four that I have made but I can not find your email address anywhere on the site. Obviously it is there because others have emailed you but alas, I am oblivious. If you feel comfortable, will you please send me your address so I can send along the pictures of my blocks. Thanks and happy stitching!
    Linda

      The website contacts me when there is a message. I would love to see your applique, I am thrilled when someone sends me pictures. Maybe it will inspire others. You are doing better than me, the pink in the April block kept me stymied. Finally settled on a third shade, but would have preferred to use something different. I may get it done, have to, the May block is here!

  5. Gene Heard says:

    I am doing your bom and am wondering where to send pictures of my completed blocks.

    • bdieges says:

      Look forward to receiving them. I sent you an email, if you shouldn’t get it, let me know through this page.

      • Gene Heard says:

        Just for your info, Gene is a soon to be 69 year old lady who is enjoying your block of the month very much.

      • bdieges says:

        Please forgive me, every Gene that I ever knew was a gentleman, that is was I get for “assuming!” I am glad that you are enjoying the blocks.

  6. Jennifer says:

    I have January, February done… only a few months behind, did these two today. How do I share?

    It was a pleasure to meet and chat with you at the Tehachapi Quilt Show.
