Pieced with black aurifil thread.

Quilted with Superior Thread’s Fantastico #5122 and Superior’s Bottom Line.

Batting – Hobbs 80/20 blend in black.

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.

Current Status as of 7/24/16

It’s quilted!  I’m working on binding it now.  My goal is to get it done this month.

Updates

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:

  1. Measure the top – done… 89.5″ x 89.5″
  2. Determine how much backing I need and measure the backing fabric I have to see if it is enough. – done
  3. Embroider the label
  4. Piece the back – done
  5. Set the top and back aside for quilting. It is now the third quilt ready for quilting. :0
  6. 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
