From the website: “This beautiful quilt was designed by Jinny Beyer specifically for beginning to intermediate level quilters. Each of the blocks are geared to teach a variety of basic skills, beginning with the easiest block and ending with the most difficult. The fabrics cover a spectrum of color, and seem to glow, giving the quilt a breathtaking beauty.”
The BOM fee is $24.95 per month.
The free, downloadable pattern is available at http://www.rjrfabrics.com/patterns/download_pattern.cfm?psID=423.
This is a Ginny Beyer pattern.

It’s quilted! I’m working on binding it now. My goal is to get it done this month.
8/26/2013 – I received in the mail my receipt for the $25 sign up fee. This was nice to get as confirmation that I am now part of this BOM and I look forward to receiving the kits each month. I received this via email too last week so it seems overkill to have gotten a physical receipt as well. But I guess not everyone actively monitors their email so they’re just making sure that the recipient receives it whichever way they want it. 🙂
Excerpt from Manic Monday – 1/20/14 post
I’m really happy that Block 2 of Moon Glow was much better than Block 1. I paid close attention to the instructions. The square in the middle was appliqued on and I know it isn’t straight or anything but I like it this way. I was watching Carol Doak’s Mastering Foundation Paper Piecing on Craftsy to help me as I foundation pieced the star together and it helped a lot! I’m now caught up with the Moon Glow BOM!
As of 9/13/15, next steps:
- Measure the top – done… 89.5″ x 89.5″
- Determine how much backing I need and measure the backing fabric I have to see if it is enough. – done
- Embroider the label
- Piece the back – done
- Set the top and back aside for quilting. It is now the third quilt ready for quilting. :0
- Clear up the bits and pieces of leftover fabric and put it in the various scrap bins I’ve set up for my new scrap system. – done
Ideas on quilting this baby…
- someone used 40wt thread, Glide to quilt the top… I need to check this out

The inner part is all quilted. I took it off the frame and I’m now working on quilting the border on my domestic.
