Here's a BOM that starts in Febuary '09 - Called a 9-patch Spool Sampler. Before the first block is posted, she gives you fabric requirements (though this would be a pretty scrap quilt too!)
Ooooo...I may have to do this one. I've never done a Row Quilt before and this one looks interesting. Another good way to use up scraps, one row at a time! Row 1 for January is posted.
"Country Cups" is the name of this 2009 BOM. Might be for the more advanced appliquer, but it sure is pretty! New block posted the first week of each month. Only the current month's block will be offered for free.
Block Central has a new BOM for 2009 called "Memory Lane". Very traditional quilt blocks and a quilt I'm sure you will be proud of upon completion. January's block is posted.

Do we have any hand-embroider'ers in our membership? Join me (yes, I do hand embroidery) in this very sweet BOM from the Netherlands (though she also posts in English). The series is called "Once Upon a Time". I love the first one - you embroider a tower, then add braided yarn for Rapunzel's hair hanging out the window! January's block is posted.
And another BOM for the hand embroider-ers -- very simple, very sweet. The first block is posted.
Nancy Rink Designs is offering a beautiful, traditional block BOM. The series began in July '08, but all blocks are up and active.
