I missed their previous BOM, Green Tea and Sweet Beans (although I always think of it as Green Beans and Ham), a wonderful BOM which my friend Katy bought, never got around to doing because she has been so busy being the pied piper of the quilting world, and has passed to my friend Mandy who is doing it absolutely beautifully and I might even get some pics of it when she come here for our sewing day next week. Here is a Green Tea and Sweet Beans quilt top finished by my mate Lil.
And now there is a new BOM starting right now (go to Amitie to sign up) and I confess I signed up even before I saw a picture of the quilt itself but Jenny has just shown a glimpse on the Amitie website. You can hand or machine piece this one, which is perfect for me because I don't have the patience for hours of hand sewing whereas some people just love it. This newest BOM is called the Gipsy Wife and is as whimsical and quirky as the previous two and I cannot wait for my first month's package to arrive. I will squeal. I know I will.
What sets Amitie's BOMs apart from the rest for me are both the wonderful designs of the quilts themselves but also the fabrics they send. If you have a bored moment, pop over to their website for the most incredible selection of fabrics you will find in any shop anywhere in the world right now. Take a look at this little trio of Liberty fabrics just to get an idea of what I'm talking about (that price is AU$ BTW and not US$ since the shop is situated in Melbourne Australia).
So tell me, have you ever signed up for a BOM? Did you enjoy it? Did you get the quilt finished?
