BOM Mania!

So I've never actually done a BOM (Block of the Month) program, and in the interest of doing new and different things (like entering the scary techie world of blogging), I decided a few months ago to try it. Of course, the delicious fabric was a major enticement! I found the 2009 Designer Mystery BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop featuring the Glace line of fabric. Great designers, great fabric, great store...what more can a girl wish for! Well, I'm working on my 3rd block now, and they are drop dead gorgeous (I'll be posting a pic soon). I love getting one a month, so easy and quick, and leaves me dying to see what comes next.

Well, like all things quilty...addictions come easily, and I find myself drooling over another BOM at the Fat Quarter Shop. They are doing a Pennsylvania Dutch BOM with Wiscasset (which I can't wait to see in person). It looks wonderful and now I'm debating whether I should take the BOM plunge, again! Go and check it out at and let me know what you think!

I'm thinking it's pretty hard to resist!

Some Must See Blogs

Here are a couple awesome things you've got to check out online right now! I mean who doesn't love a giveaway?

Over at the Crazy Old Ladies blog you can enter for a chance to win a Moda scrap bag! They are celebrating their first Moda bake shop project. Which is adorable, by the way!

Heather over at Anka's Treasures has an amazing giveaway for quilts and some charm packs!

Good luck and please feel free to share any winnings with me!

Happy Tuesday!

Technology Here I Come!

So here I am in cyberspace! Who knew? Me, the girl who can't keep her cell phone charged, has yet to figure out how to text message, and still doesn't really get twittering (what is that anyway?), has jumped into the world of blogging. I've been lurking around this blogging universe for a few months, quietly reading and checking it out. And, much to my surprise, I love it! It's just too fun to be sitting in my own house making friends around the country (and world), and getting to see so many amazing pictures (especially the quilts).

So here goes nothing! I'm in!

So hello everyone out there! My name is Christy and I live in beautiful Colorado Springs. I have two kiddos, Ryan is 4 and Anna is 6. I get the great privilege of being a stay at home mom, and I love it. I'm also an avid quilter and fabric collector (of course).

Thanks for stopping by and I'm looking forward to meeting you all in this crazy online place!
