No, I don't buy block of the months. If I did, I would get them all at one time.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I don't buy BOMs - too many great things to do with all the free stuff on the internet, plus I like to use my own choice of fabrics.

Carrie P. said...

When I buy BOM I like to get them once a month. More fun that way plus I will be more apt to keep up.

Carrie P. said...

I have bought BOM. I like to get them once a month, more fun that way.

Kathy Gorman said...

No, I have never bought a block of the month.

Martina said...

I only bought one BOM and it was a fee for all blocks. Normally I don't as it is difficult with shipping overseas and I love to use my stash. But I attend a few free BOM's which I like a lot!

Danette Stankovich said...

I made a quilt for my sister's 50th birthday from a Block of the month. However, I didn't start sewing one block per month, so I had to catch up. But I did get it finished, quilted and bound for her birthday.

Havplenty said...

I do not buy BOM's as I like to choose my own fabrics and not have them chosen for me. But for some I know this is a great way for them to make coordinated quilts. It's all a personal choice.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

I haven't done any recently, but when I did, I liked getting them all together. I could skip around and do them in whatever order I felt like, I could get ahead if I needed to and if I got behind, that was ok too. LOL Thanks for the fun!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

BTW the link to the demo gives me an error message. :-(

Lisa Marie said...

I have never bought a BOM. I have tried to participate in free online BOMs but usually fall behind before long. Still, I have the patterns and can make them when they fit my schedule.

KaHolly said...

I have never done a BOM. I'm on a very limited budget.

Emily C said...

I like the idea, but I prefer to choose my own pattern (and often make my own). I rarely like both the fabric and the pattern of a BOM. My schedule is also so busy that realistically I don't have time.

DebrafromMD said...

I have done both.

Rosa said...

No, I didn´t ,I`m sewing along and made free BOM,last years and this one.I get them on the the blogs I`m following.There are generous designer that share them.

kakecreator said...

NO, I don't buy block of the month, but this is gorgeous fabric!

kakecreator said...

No, I don't buy BOM, but this fabric is gorgeous! would love to win!

cjmont said...

i do buy boms usually one at a time but alos do many online to use my stash.

Vicki N said...

No to BOMs -not that I wouldn't love to but just not enough time or energy :) Okay not enough time-one can always get the energy,

Joanne said...

I used to buy BOMs and bought them monthly. I have not bought one in a few years because I still have some from years past that I have not even started. Of course I am not ruling out buying one again, if I absolutely LOVE it.

Quilting Jeannie said...

I participated only once in a block of the month at a local quilt shop. I didn't care for the quilt when I finished it. It would take amazing fabrics to get me to do another one.

Rahjs Girl said...

I do them one at a time.

Evie H said...

I don't buy BOMs. I don't want a quilt identical to someone else's. I may follow BOMs where I use my own fabrics. Thanks for the giveaway!

Cheryl Hammond said...

Beautiful. I have a couple of BOMs waiting for attention.

Melody Lutz said...

I did once, at month 8 they couldn't get the remainder of the pattern, and that was that...total waste.

joanne roberts said...

No I don't buy patterns. I like to wing it with what I have already. But I hope I win.

Beth said...

Yes I do buy some block of the month and I learn so much from the designers. Thanks you

Michele T said...

I have not participated in a BOM, but I would probably purchase a month at a time.

Kris said...

I haven't yet bought one, yet have been tempted.

Vandy said...

I buy them 1 month at a time, if I like it

Marian Allen said...

I have gotten a couple when I was just learning to quilt - but I found on most of them there wasn't enough info - plus having to pay shipping every month. I love the quilts that I did, but probably won't order another one

jellybean said...

I have never bought Bom I already have more fabric than I probably need but don't tell Hubby🇬🇧😊

patricia said...

Not usually. I'll wait for the book or whole pattern.

Kclegg said...

I'm doing my first BOM now!

Smith Family said...

I don't do BOM programs. I'm too impatient. I don't like waiting to finish the project. Lol...

Cynthia Lanahan said...

Usually by the month

Debi said...

I do not buy BOM because I've experienced not enough fabric several times.

Anonymous said...

Monthly purchase of the BOM, that way I stay on task and don't fall behind stitching. Plus I love receiving new pattern and fabrics each month, it's like a gift to me:) Thank you all at Henry Glass & Co. You're awesome!

Sheila said...

No I don't buy BOMs but I do take part in the free BOMS online.

Lucille said...

I do like BOTM. I have done them both ways, but usually 1 month at a time.

Irene Storteboom said...

I have bought two complete BOM packags for quilts to be made as special gifts. I also participate in some on-line BOM projects using my own fabrics. So the answer is Both.

phegland said...

I don't buy BOMs. I see many beautiful projects sold this way, but I think my attention span is too short for this type of project.

Sue said...

Don't use bom, prefer to design my own, , making it up as I go along!

Unknown said...

I buy them sometimes. A block at a time.

Robin said...

The Gleam app says there are 36 possibl entries but it will only show me one way to enter.

wendy said...

I do not buy BOM's. There are so many free ones on the sites that I enjoy I just figure I have more money to spend on fabric.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

I haven't bought one.....but they are appealing

Sheila said...

I did my first quilt as a block of the month in 1987 - we went to class and learned how to piece the block. I haven't bought one since. I have done guild blocks with my own fabric.

Anonymous said...

Yes, I have done A BOM program. Beautiful, happy fabric! urchin(at)kpunet.net

Material Girl said...

I am not doing BOMs . I don't really like sampler quilts and it seems that they end up looking like them. I also have a hard time with following instructions. If I'm told to use a light background, I tend to want a dark one to jack up the contrast.....

Linda Fickling said...

no...but they are lovely

scottylover said...

I don't buy block of the month programs. I used to participate in a BOM that one of our LQS had but you could only get one block at a time there. The shop has since closed and I haven't found a program at any of the other LQS that I like.
Sandy A

Joanna said...

I've joined in many BOM's online and use my own fabric, so no I don't buy them.

Beth said...

I did a couple of BOM programs back when I was a new quilter--finished one, and the other is still in a pizza box in my closet. Now I participate either though online quilt-alongs, or through our LQS Saturday programs, in which they provide the fabric & pattern if we complete the block (or, sometimes, just show up to pick up the components). I see a lot of very cute block of the month programs now, and would probably sign up, but the costs are way too high--$25 to $39 a month? in the end that is a very expensive quilt, before the quilting.

Allison CB said...

I love BOMs.....most of the time I buy them monthly but I have purchased all at one time if the design is so hot that I just have to have it!!!
Mumbird3atgmaildotcom

Kathy E. said...

No, I have not bought any BOMs, but I have taken part in a few free BOMs through blogs and enjoyed them very much! If I were to buy any, I'd buy them one at a time.

Joanne said...

I prefer to purchase all the blocks at once, i am an over achiever and a block a month isn't enough

Bonnie58 said...

I like to drag out the suspense and reciev the blocks one at a time. Thanks for sharing

PK Sews said...

I haven't bought any BOM's yet, but I'd consider it if I fell in love with one of them. I'd buy a month at a time for budget purposes. Thanks for the chance to win!

Gloria Cotten said...

No, I don't buy BOM's. I like to design my own quilts and choose my own fabrics. Thanks for your generous give-aways!

Rachell said...

I have participated in several BOM, but I've used a combo of stash and fat quarters for them. I haven't bought BOM kits, though. I've thought about it; there are a few I would love to do!

Dominique Wielgosch said...

I do not buy BOM too many beautiful fabrics and ideas to work with already :)

susan said...

I like to get all the blocks at once so I can decide if I want to make any additions or vary to my taste.

JANET said...

No, I have not bought a BOM, but I have done a couple free ones online, using my own fabric.

lindawwww said...

I haven't bought any block of the month patterns yet but if I did, I'd probably buy it month by month.

lin.web.28 at gmail dot com

Nettie said...

I do buy BOM's every once in a while, but generally they cost way too much buying them that way. I would rather use my own patterns and create something with my stash of fabrics!
Thanks!
nettiecrain@live.com

Crickets Corner said...

I have bought 2 of them because they were on sale and it was cost effective compared to normal prices. I usually just do free BOM's There are so many wonderful ones you can find on the internet that I've got six different ones going right now. Rina

Katy M said...

I haven't bought one yet but it's something I'd be interested in in the future X

teachpany said...

Such cute fabric! I've done some BOMs but prefer to pick my own fabrics, so I don't do them often if a kit purchase is required. I've done lots of free ones.

Margaret said...

I don't usually buy bom. I love so many of them but my finances will not let

Denise Losczyk said...

I haven't purchased block of the months, I usually create my own designs. Love using EQ software for designing some of the time, or draw my own designs.

anna brown said...

I never have bought any block of the month things....Very pretty fabric will half to watch video..... happyness04431@yahoo.com

BJM said...

No. I have too much fabric to buy BOMs.

MtnJudy said...

I haven't ever purchased from a block of the month club ...but I would like to in the future. It would be enjoyable to see other blocks done along with my own.

Sarah J said...

I haven't done a BOM, but I would consider it if it was just the right quilt!

quiltingtn said...

I love this fabric grouping. It would be awesome to win it.

Sherry said...

I bought one block of the month and it was a once a month purchase. I do some block of the month projects that I follow along on people's blogs using my own fabrics.

Billie Farley said...

I have one BOM still languishing in my sewing room from the 1990's. I like the creative charge new fabrics give my creative juices. Too little time to spend just re-creating some one else's project.

Renea said...

Thanks for the cute giveaway. I don't buy BOM's as I like to have all the fabric for my projects at one time.

Dixie said...

No I don't buy BOMs.

Cecilia said...

I have bought BOMs before, one at a time.

Vicki H said...

The only BOM I have done was monthly at a LQS.

Andrea Bolding said...

No, I do not like other people choosing my fabrics.

Cathy Jackson said...

I love BOMs! I generally buy them as they go. I did purchase one all at once as we were moving a the time. I am currently doing a BOM at my local LQS. I love BOMs, because they are more affordable often and just plain fun!

I have in the past, but they are my UFO's. I don't buy them anymore.

Dody said...

I don't buy bom 's . I prefer picking my own colors and fabrics.

Janie said...

I don't buy BOM's. I don't usually care for the fabrics in them. Thank you for the giveaway.

Cathie said...

I've never bought BOMs. I have done several by following along as they progress. I like the challenge of using my stash.

gab said...

No, I don't buy BOM's. I would rather pick my own fabric.

Sandy said...

Rarely buy BoMs but like it all spread out to try and get it done.

Gwen Wehner said...

I have bought two BOMs on monthly plan. Usually I prefer to choose fabrics myself.

carol fun said...

When I purchase them I get one at a time...easier that way to finish!

MoniqueB said...

I don't buy them. I've found do many free things that have been great. Such a pretty bundle

Helen said...

I had three on the go at the same time once. It didn't work. I didn't manage to complete even one of them!

OhioLori said...

No, have never bought a BOM Block, or whole Kit. I think I would buy the whole set at one time...easier to get ahead..or behind...as needed.

Thank you for chance to win your Give-a-way too! :)

Farm Quilter said...

No, I don't buy BOMs - I have too many patterns in the books I own and the free patterns on the internet make it crazy to buy BOMs. I also prefer to use my own choices of fabrics in my quilts.

tricia said...

I love fun giveaways and this fabric is super fun!

tricia said...

I have not ever bought blocks of the month but I'm not opposed to the idea!

GranChris said...

If I buy one I buy it all at once. I really like to just sit and finish things. I am not a big do a little each month person.

Teresa said...

I have never bought BOM but I do like quiltalongs.

quilter said...

As a new quilter I did month by month BOM's, now I like to choose my own fabrics.

Susan L. said...

I've bought BOMs both ways, but mostly by the month.

Karen Fisher said...

I try to purchase one per year...I'm up to 2!

Susie'sfun2 said...

We have a BOM group at my local quilt shop I support, everyone has a fun time learning. This sweet bundle would sew up perfect. Henry Glass has beautiful fabrics.
Happy spring 💐

Kathy said...

I love BOM's - it's a nice surprise every month

Abbigail said...

If I buy one it's bought all at once. I don't like to dig everything out and put it away every month.

Linda Big D said...

i HAVE bought several block of the months - it was a great way to learn quilting. I bought them a month at a time.

Janesshep said...

Sometimes I do one, especially those you follow in the magazines. I can't always keep up with the ones you buy monthly, but if I did, I'd buy all at once to ensure I didn't miss one.

lalaluu said...

I don't do BOM or kits. I always see different colors/fabrics for the patterns in the BOMs/kits, so I'd rather just have the pattern and then use my stash or go shopping for the fabric I like! (lalaluu @ yahoo dot com)

Miriam said...

I have done one block of the month at my local quilt shop. The blocks are finished but not the setting and finishing blocks.

Nancy said...

I've never done a BOM; never had the money. I would like to try at least one, so I probably will start one later this year

Sandra Walker said...

I have only bought one BOM programme at the urging of my then 10-year-old daughter, and that was before I started quilting. That got me hooked, and I haven't stopped yet, 20 years later.

Connie Cain said...

Beautiful fabric!! Love it! :)
craftyccain@gmail.com

Kathy MacKie said...

I've only done a couple BOM and I've only finished one so far and I prefer them all at one time.

Tu-Na Quilts said...

I haven't bought any block of the months yet. I have lots of fabric stash to use.

No I don't buy BOMs - but if I did it would be one at a time. Thanks!

ledamewood said...

I love BOM's. I buy them a month at a time, but tend to let them accumulate and make them all at once.

Betty, BFF said...

I don't buy BOM because the postage and overall cost are excessive. Just give me the pattern and turn me loose!

LeAnne said...

I've only made one BOM. I ended up changing some fabrics in it. I enjoyed it, but I really like picking my own fabrics better.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I haven't bought any BOM but I would buy them a month at a time.

I just began sewing in July so I haven't done a BOM yet. But, I'm hoping to try one next year!

Ellee said...

No, I don't buy BOM kits or programs. I like to select my own fabrics and patterns. I may like some of the blocks in a BOM offering, but seldom all of them. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

Esther Grimes said...

I have done a few BOM, by the month, but have not yet paid for one. I enjoy just having a little part to work on at a time.

Kristine said...

I never have because I can't commit to anything!
