2015 BOM

We will be doing the Block of the Month a little differently this year. There are so many great medallion quilts out there these days and we thought it would be fun to join in on that. We will start with a center block for January and add a border each month through September. For October and November, we’ll give a little more info, ideas, and tips on how to turn your top into a finished quilt.

We’re making this up as we go, to create a cohesive look and not make it too busy, so we are not yet sure of a finished quilt size or total yardage needed. You are welcome to make all or just a few of the borders – it’s all up to you!

Our Medallion coloring sheet:



For January, everyone should be picking out their color scheme and making a 12.5″ center block. Your center can be any block from our 2014 BOM program or another quilt block of your choosing. Some have suggested using old bee blocks or abandoned WIPs (Works in Progress) for their center.

  5. I am so excited to do the next border. It is exactly what I had wanted for the next step, so thank you for reading my mind. Can’t wait to get the detentions on this one so I can get started on the next addition. This BOM is so much fun!
