Announcing BOM QAL 2020

Hello Quilting Friends. I have exciting quilty news to share! I have designed a Block of the Month quilt for you. It will begin on January 1st. I am announcing the Quilt Along now for several reasons.

  1. By announcing an upcoming project now, I’m giving you time to finish a couple of your UFOs so you will feel free to participate in a new quilt project.
  2. You might like to purchase your fabric for the project during pre-holiday or post-holiday sales.
  3. Or you might like to ask Santa for the fabric for the project.
  4.  In addition, you would probably enjoy looking forward to the excitement of beginning new project after holiday gaiety has subsided.

The name of the sampler quilt is “Sisters;” there’s a Big Sister 12″ block and a Little Sister 6″ block of each patchwork design. So each month you’ll make two blocks – a 12″ and a 6.” The quilt measures 68″ x 75.”


1 pkg. 10″ squares, 42 total. Choose a package containing mostly medium and dark fabrics (if your background will be light) OR 12-15 fat quarters

3 yds. light background fabric

1 1/2 yds. light background fabric for sashing between columns as well as 1st border, can be the same or slightly different than the 3 yds. listed above

1 1/2 yds. dark outer border fabric

4 1/2 yds. backing fabric

3/4 yd. binding fabric

Please leave a comment below if you are interested in participating in the “Sisters” Block of the Month in 2020. A commitment of at least 10 participants will make the time spent in pattern writing worthwhile.

  1. J’ai beaucoup d’ouvrage en cours mais je suis intéressée par le QAL “Sisters”que tu proposes. Je ne le ferai probablement pas aussi grand car je ne veux plus entreprendre de grands ouvrages mais la technique des blocs m’intéresse.

    • Monique, thank you for your interest in the “Sisters” QAL. Perhaps you would just like to make the 6″ block size. One of the #sistersqal followers on Instagram is making 6″ and 3″ blocks; this may also be a possibility for you!
