What materials did you use? BOM fabric: 12.5" square of background and scraps. Steam-a-Seam II and marking pen that won't be set by heat. I used Rachel Shelburne's template Simply Crazy to cut out center for crazy-quilt patch, but any 5 sided shape will work as well.

but would you love them if they made Batman smile? Yes?

I love this but don't understand how you did the cool circles. Please explain

04/07/2012 Flag

Oh, gosh. Please go to the free pattern button above for BOM Buddies! Just below the photo it says "Pattern Info" and click on the orange BOM Buddies name. If you have any trouble at all understanding the free instructions, just tell me. I hope you like it!

To make things easier, I have begun to name ALL of my patterns beginnging with ww (for wild wimin'). That way, when you go to Patterns and the Search box, you can just type lower-case ww and all my patterns will show up in the results.

Chevvy, I am just now (possibly) understanding - but the "cool circles" did you mean the white bedspread underneath the blocks? If so, please see the question from Michaelia above. (This is the last time I photograph on that bedspread!)

Neither the free button or the BOM button takes me to this pattern

I noticed that sometimes the website links are wonky and coming back later seems to find the situation fixed... but there is always a way around the glitches. Click on the orange Patterns tab at the top of the page, then in the Patterns search box type the words BOM Buddies, then click the orange Find Pattern button. That just worked for me. I'm sorry that you had problems finding it, but I hope you enjoy it once you get it!

I feel realy stupid but I can't find an orange patterns tab at the top of my page. There's an orange project tab but that doesn't take me to the right place either.

Okay, try this and if it doesn't work for you, send an email to help@craftsy.com. Scroll to the very top of this page and you will see "Hi, NJore. Your Account". Directly below that is an orange tab saying Patterns. When you go there, in the search box, type a LOWER CASE ww. The pattern should pop right up. I'm going to test the connection from here and if it is not working, I will also contact craftsy help. I am so sorry you are having issues. Good luck now! (in the future, you should be able to search by typing ww and ALL of my patterns will pop up.) Pam

Hello Pam, thank you for this free BOM. Love the contrasting colours and the way the pattern shape evolves within the circle on the second piece. Very lovely! However I must admit that I am also intrigued by the background they rest on. Is it your work? If I may venture a guess it looks like some sort of "pebbly" trapunto technique and a very painstaking one too. Would love some more info on this assuming it is your work?! Thank you.

I TOO WOULD LIKE INFO. ON THE BACKGROUND FABRIC OR TECHNIQUE! PAM, I HOPE YOU'LL SHARE THIS WITH ALL OF YOUR FANS.

Oh, gosh - how embarrassing is this? I loved the technique, too - that's why I bought the bedspread at Dillard's department store a few years back. But now that I'm taking Leah Day's Craftsy courses, I'm sure that I can replicate this on my longarm quilting machine. I'm going to try freehand drawing irregular circles (I know I can stitch IRREGULAR circles! :-) with a water-soluble pen, stitch around and as I come out of the curve, filling in the spaces between pebbles. It isn't really trapunto - the batting is simply fluffier when it isn't densely stitched. It should be easier than it looks, I hope you try it.

HI PAM! LOVE YOUR BLOCKS OF CIRCLES. YOUR FABRIC CHOICES ARE GREAT AND YOUR IDEAS ARE GREAT TOO. KEEP UP YOUR BEAUTIFUL WORK(fun). AS SOON AS I FINISH MY CHRISTMAS TABLE RUNNER, I PLAN TO MAKE SOME OF YOUR CIRCLES IN A BLOCK.

09/25/2013 Flag

I'm so glad you like the technique - really, this can be used in SO many applications. Have fun!
