PHXMQG Does Skillbuilder BOM from Pile o’ Fabric

There is still time to go to to sign up with Alyssa online and email the BOM Chair–Limbania (or Angela) to sign up with the guild and get a punch card for this awesome BOM.  The first two blocks are available and there are videos and pdf patterns to get you started.  Alyssa says This BOM will have a total of 20 blocks, 2 blocks per month. On Thursday, January 17th, 2013 I will post the first lesson. On the 3rd Thursday of the month I will post the Block Lesson, which will include photo step by step instructions of the 2 blocks for that month (with occasional video tutorials). You will also be given a PDF of the lesson so you can print it off your computer. Then 2 weeks later I will post the FMQ Lesson, in this lesson I will go over how to plan the ideas for these blocks, and the actual quilting. That way you have about 2 weeks time to make the blocks before I start talking about actually quilting. Ultimately you have 4 weeks time between each set of 2 blocks.”  
 So the first blocks are out and look like this:

 And the second is this.

Also, there is a Flickr group at that you can join and participate in—people from all over the world and of all skill levels have joined in.  Limbania plans to give a punch/stamp card to each PHXMQG Member participant for a drawing at the end of the year—each member that completed his or her card will be eligible for the drawing.
