“Sisters” BOM – August Wrap-Up

Are you quilting along with us in 2020? Each month I post instructions for another 12″ block and a 6″ block of the same geometric design. If you make the Big Sister and the Little Sister by the end of the month, you can comment “Done” for a chance to win a quilting magazine. (Several of you commented “Done” on a blog post a couple of days ago; be sure to comment “Done” on today’s post for a chance to win.)

The block design for August was “Bronco’s Star,” the trickiest block to date. I am so proud of you for rising to the challenge and making your blocks! Marie, Sana, and Karen emailed me pictures to share with you.

Marie is using brown and pink Civil War reproduction prints for her “Sisters” quilt. I absolutely love the color combination!

If you know Sana, you will correctly assume that she is using bold colors for her quilt. And her choice of a dark background really makes the other colors “pop!” The fussy-cut star flower print adds visual interest to the center of her Big Sister block.

It is so much fun to see all eight of Sana’s 12″ blocks made this year! Notice the various fussy-cut motifs.

Karen’s batik blocks are equally stunning! The arrangement on her design wall inspires me to make a row by row quilt with rows of 6″ blocks between rows of 12″ blocks. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful setting for our Sisters blocks?

Thanks, ladies for sharing pictures of your blocks! We love seeing your work and admiring your color and fabric choices.

Now . . . it’s time to register your accomplishment. Comment “done” if you have completed the 12″ “Bronco’s Star” and either the 6″ “Bronco’s Star” or the 6″ “Shoo Fly” blocks.

Until tomorrow . . . when the instructions for the September “Sisters” blocks will be posted.

  1. Just had to add another note: Sana’s fussy cut centers and dark backgrounds are just STUNNING!!! WOWZA. I just love it and can’t wait to see your whole quilt, Sana 🙂
