Welcome to Month One of the Barn Quilt BOM from Sherry Shish of Powered by Quilting.
Last month we show off our fabric choices and I think I might have changed my mind several time during the month.
My previous post with the fabric choices can be found here.
For September, the block of the month is this:
The plan is to make 16 of this block this month that will be repeated throughout the quilt a total of 16 times.
Not sure that I am happy with my green, I might redo the couple of blocks I have made already, and use the same pattern green, as the yellow and red. Will need to think about that.
This block is super easy to make, and I am saying this as someone who does not like traditional piecing. But this quilt is just to pretty to pass on.
The pattern for this BOM was designed by Sherry and is available for purchase for $20.00 by clicking below:
If you purchase now, in addition to the pattern you will receive the monthly newsletter with specific month by month cutting instructions, tips, giveaway details and information to view Sherry’s live video each month on the Powered by Quilting Quilters Facebook Group. Be sure to respond back to the “Thank You for your purchase” email and you will be added to her newsletter list.
Sherry’s pattern is a confident beginner level with help through the entire process! What I love about this pattern is it guides you step by step, no guess work at all. From beginning with your fabric cutting, to unit sewing instructions, to block construction all the way to the final binding. It is easy to follow the written and illustrated directions.
Additionally, these hosts will have a blog post too on the first Wednesday of each month. Please visit them to see their completed work and get inspiration and tips for working on yours.
