There’s a new 12-month block-of-the-month (BOM) quilt here at the ABQ Sewing Studio. This class is virtual and starts in September, 2021. We are taking reservations now.
Led by Kelley Richardson
Our own Kelley Richardson will be hosting the BOM program with a private Facebook group and how-to videos to help you through your project one month at a time. It’s easy when you work with Kelley and the community of friendly quilters making this quilt.
About the Courtyard Quilt
This fabulous queen-sized quilt will be taught over 12 months. Courtyard has been created with Kaye England’s new Indigo Garden collection in graceful grays and beautiful blues – an updated color story for traditional floral fabric designs while at the same time harkening back to French Provincial décor.
The quilt measures 87″ square with a medallion-like, on-point center that is made up of 5 on-point blocks.
A series of plain and pieced borders includes two with the small repeating stripe and one with the large repeating stripe, pieced to make the stripe seem to extend in all directions from the quilt center!
The last pieced border, mostly made with simple checkerboard squares, is colored to create a fascinating ombréd effect. Your eye is drawn around and around by the diagonal lines of the design and the waves of color, yet it’s uniquely calm and beautiful – just the right feeling for a bedroom.
