Summer is well on its way to over

and again we have a TWO Part Block of the Month ...

Both blocks are similar and use techniques you already know,

Remember, for the eager beavers amongst us, that all these blocks need to be  layered and quilted ready to assemble in the Autumn.

Tutorials for the various techniques are available in The Darkside Tutorial thread

Do read right through the AUGUST's BOM before you start!!!

So without further ado ...

Here we are at the SEVENTH BOM month of the 2020!

AUGUST's BOM


There will be a minimum of Twelve 12" blocks for this years BOM:
Some months you will have two blocks to make and some only one.

In October I will guide you through layering and quilting your blocks
and in November I will take you through  assembling them, using a QAYG method,
into a fabulous lap or cot sized quilt (or even a series of comfy cushions.)

And everyone who finishes the year with a completed quilt (or full series of cushions)
will receive an exclusive The Sewing Place Prize Winners Badge or Sew on Patch

      [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]    [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

I have chosen a monochrome theme with pops of colour for my quilt,
you may choose whatever colourway/theme you like ...
Brights, plains, patterns, pastels, neutrals ... the choice is yours!

As ever when you click on the link, select the first picture,
and click on the i icon to bring up the destructions
on the right side of your screen.

Do read through The Basic Basics Thread before you start.

Please post pics of your blocks each month and by the end of the year we will have a fantastic album for the archives

Not yet.  :ninja:

*Ahem*....I'm busy assembling the backing for my temperature quilt  :angel:  and I'm hand stitching a label to go on the back.  :)
I've just stopped to have breakfast. I've only got my surname to stitch and that bit'll be done.

I managed to get the first one done, in between my sister whatsapping me all afternoon, and my bedridden friend phoning me to go and help her. Which I did of course, although when I got there there was no problem apart from her wanting a cigarette. Hopefully I'll get the second one done in peace tomorrow, but I'm not counting on it.  -<
Oh, and I still hate scant quarter inch seams. The block turned out a scant 12 1/2 inches though, so not too bad.  :D

I've done the bear foot one - bloomin' ker-nackered after all that measuring and trimming - but nipped off a couple of points  :(  Have re-stitched but too weary and cross-eyed to unpick the titchy stitching at the moment!
