July -thru- November, 2019

This BOM project will meet meet monthly, started in July 2019, and continuing the third Tuesday of each month through November, 2019.  The project is using:

• Quilt Kit including fabric: A Poinsettia Winter by Jason Yenter for In The Beginning Fabrics and the Pattern Book “A Poinsettia Winter Quilt” by Jason Yenter

We will be updating this BLOG once in awhile – and, as our BOM projects have short-lives (for now: Through the November 2019), perhaps this BLOG helps us all interact. We look forward to hearing from you and to your joining us in the BOM once a month at Bernina World of Sewing in Raleigh.

    Hello – (From the Webmaster)
    We have started this Weblog with the intent of providing the BOM participants with a “sounding board” for their use.

    Please remember that all Weblog entries are audited by me – however, this Weblog is NOT monitored by the store’s staff. Any technical questions, etc. are not meant for store’s-staff members: The BOM meeting is not a class – and, this Weblog is not a place to ask store staff questions!

    Normally, you would start a “Reply” thread using the “Leave a Reply” box at the bottom of this Web page. Alternatively, you just click on the Reply button at the bottom of some existing entry.

    Some reminders:
    – To place a photo related to your efforts worked-on for the BOM project, just send an eMail to me with the picture attached/included. I will figure out where you intend the photo for your particular Comment.
    – Contact me by eMail if you have any problems / concerns with ANYTHING related to the Weblog. Thank you.

    I wish you a GREAT BOM 2019.

    Good luck with your projects and

    Hi, everyone!

    I am glad that you found the BLOG. To make this work, it would be great if once in awhile you make a comment here or send in a photo for the BLOG. This way, we will all be “kept up” with each other’s progress – and problems/successes!

    We will meet for five month – once a month (third Tuesday of the month) at 5:30pm at the store.

    If you are aiming at a completed piece for this Holiday Season: Perhaps now is the time to get a quilting date at your favorite quilter if that is necessary?

    Have fun!

    Sonja

    A lot of discussion and brain-storming. Good! We wish us all a good Third Month; see you in September.

    We had a great start; with excitement about the beautiful fabric and lots of keeping-attention and “keeping up with the program”. It will be a busy, fun few months. Good luck to us all!

    Month-1 – All together



    August 9, 2019
    Month-2 – Ready for Discussions during August meeting.
    I am sure you can spot the one block not-together yet: Ready for Discussion!

    I mentioned that I had been surprised that the Block Size (s) were not mentioned directly in the pattern. The following shows/confirms the first month Center Block is 6.5″ finished (7″ with Seam Allowance).

    I finished the blocks for the first month. I found these blocks to be challenging. The center section measured a little shy of 7 inches. I think perhaps I didn’t press aggressively enough because of all the bias- always intimidating to me. I was careful to sew accurate quarter inch seams and my finished blocks came out fine.
