Block of the Month through Quilts in the Attic
Beginning October 2013 – September 2014
Will finish at 88″ x 88″ top and binding.
Blocks finish at 7.5″x 7.5″.
I was listening to Alison Rosen’s old podcasts “Within A Quarter Inch” and one of the early episodes went on and on about BOMs. I’ve done BOMs with my LQS and never tried to do it through the mail. But since we’ve moved I haven’t found an LQS I like yet and I miss the BOMs. So at the Long Beach International Quilt Show (2013) I happened by Quilts in the Attics’ booth and found this BOM. So I joined up.
The BOM fee is $32.95 per month.
This is a 12 month BOM. I will get 4-5 blocks per month and each block will finish at 7.5″ x 7.5″ for a total of 41 blocks and a finished border. For block 1, I mentioned on this post that I didn’t understand why we created a bunch of half square triangles instead of making flying geese pieced side by side. The method used to make the half square triangles was interesting and was called in the instructions as “star single” half square triangle paper. It is an interesting method that I’m going to use again (at least for the next few blocks) and will have more experience with it.

I also was able to get Block 3 of Hampton Ridge finished on Friday – day one of the retreat. I’m still on track with this BOM because I haven’t received the November Package yet. I am getting better at matching those points. I didn’t match them very well in Block 1 and Block 2 was better but still not great. I feel really good with Block 3 and it went together fairly easily. I could have gotten it done quicker on Friday if I wasn’t bombarded with as many interruptions as I had. But it was what it was and I’m happy with how it turned out.
