Design Wall Monday–a BOM

Back in January, the gang over at Quilting Canadians on Quilt With Us decided to do a BOM, that Shannon titled Canadian Colors.  I joined the group, and have posted, I think, the blocks as they’ve been completed each month.

For Christmas, I had received a lovely package of fat quarters in greys and beiges, and decided to use those as much as possible in these blocks.  As the year went on, I didn’t pull out the previous blocks to ‘match’ colors, I just pulled from my stash, and the fat quarters whatever I felt like using that day,and made the block.

Here’s what’s done so far:006

These are in the order of the blocks from January to November.  December’s block will be posted shortly, and when that’s put together, then I can start to assemble the quilt top.  I’m just not sure if I want to leave it in this order, if I want to wash it, and how wide, and what about borders?  Lots of decisions to make – should keep me going!

We’ll be doing another BOM next year – no title yet, but there will be several of us taking turns choosing the block for the month.  My first month is February – starting to think…………

Happy designing!            Blessings, Peg


  1. I love that you used fabrics that made you happy at that moment!

  2. Now that is good stash using. That what I am doing with some yarn for a pair of leg warmers. Thanks for bd wishes.

  3. Looking good, Peg! It sounds like a fun group and a great challenge.

  4. BOMs are fun. Will you put sashing around them?
