I love block of the month programs. In theory, anyway. You sign up to receive a new block pattern and fabric once a month, and in a year you have enough blocks for a quilt. That's the idea, it doesn't always work that way though.
Enter exhibit #1.
Moonglow was a block of the month series released in 1999 - 2000. Yes, over 10 years ago. I fully intended to make two quilts, one for my husband and one for my mother, so I signed up for two kits. I've made a total of two blocks. In twelve years. Apparently the pattern is now available as a free download.....
If you want to see the quilt top, Nic has recently completed hers and she did a really lovely job.
I decided to try the block of the month thing again, and I signed up for Fat Quarter Shop's Designer Mystery BoM partly because I thought I might keep up this time and partly because it uses Bonnie & Camille's Vintage Modern line, which is SO. DARN. CUTE.

The program has been running for three months, and I have made ALL THREE BLOCKS!
The question now is, can I keep up this hectic pace?
