September??? BJ's Quilt Basket BOM


I don't know about you but I can't get over the idea that it is September!  I no longer have that siren going off in my head alerting me to the impending school year...but, September remains a big month for me.  My sister's wedding anniversary, my oldest son's birthday, Robin's birthday, my wedding anniversary and for the last several years...the Fabric Stalkers Beach Retreat!

Of course yesterday was First Saturday BOM at BJ's Quilt Basket.  I swear every month that I am going to be prepared so when that 1st Saturday arrives I am relaxed.  Instead, yesterday I was up at 5 AM cutting my fabric and making my blocks!  If you show up with your blocks done each month it's free (instructions & fabric) but if you show up unprepared, you pay $5!  No Way!!!  All I could hear was, "Getter Done" and I did.  This is one BOM I am totally caught up with as you can see above.

Vicki, Owner of BJ's gives a nice infomercial, promotes classes, has a show 'n tell segment and gives out door prizes.  It is a fun way to get together...but...I have to say my favorite part is the after party where the Fabric Stalkers who are participating walk across the street and have coffee together!  I love that time.  Girlfriends, fabric and coffee...what's not to love?

  1. It looks like a great time was had by all at BJ's! It's no wonder that you love going across the street afterward with everyone for need it to stay awake after getting up and having the frenzy of activity to cut and sew all of that! lol Sounds like a ton of fun all the way around.

  2. I enjoy all of your great pictures.

  3. You know Corney, I have been that way since I was little...always...last minute. Cramming for exams, burning the midnight oil to finish a paper...and stitchin' on the beach to get a quilt in the mail! lol
