Old School BOM! Sew Some Blocks!

The Old School BOM was stared by Kim from Persimon Dreams to go back to when BOM were just a fun gathering of making! Like WAY back in 2011!  I remember those Block of the Month days where Flickr was the way to share with your community and phones were stupid! 

On the 12th of each month, a new quilter will share a block with us. They’ll be bringing things back to basics teaching a variety of techniques from traditional piecing, applique, paper piecing, and perhaps more! This is a great program for beginners, but also fun for folks who know what they’re doing. It’s an opportunity to see someone else’s technique, try something new, and perhaps decide what works best for you.

12″ Mystery Blocks

Each quilter will share a tutorial making a 12″ finished block. The tutorial will be free for the month it’s posted – there may be a fee to purchase the tutorial later.

At the same time, this will be a mystery block of the month! Until the very end, I will not show you what the finished quilt will look like.

Choosing Fabrics

How do you choose fabric for a mystery sampler quilt?
Well – my plan is to pull 1-3 main colors and an accent color. Since most of my quilts are fairly scrappy I’ll pull about 2 yards (which could be 8 quarter yard cuts or an equal volume of smaller cuts) of each color, while making sure I have other fabric in my stash I could add if needed.
