Join today and get started on this journey.

Previous Months can be found here.

NOTE: This is being posted one day early as I am headed to Houston today. The instructions for Month 11 post on November 1, 2018 on The Quilt Show.

We are getting down to the end of this year's Block of the Month. Now you have the Quilt Assembly Instructions. You can put your blocks in the exact place the cover quilt uses or move them around. I started with the cover quilt, put my blocks on the wall, then rearranged them to suit my fabric choices. It's your quilt, make it as you like.

I also used a different center and added sashing between the blocks  to add length to the quilt. Here is mine, with the Rolling Star center block I used for my quilt. This block has set-in pieces and lots of fiddly cutting and piecing so I chose not to try to "teach" that block here: :

In September I provided instructions for this alternate block for those who did not want to do the Barn. Here is the Twinkling Star pinned on top of the center of my quilt: 

If you interested in my setting, send me an email and I'll send my detailed instructions.. The document is  very long as it goes step by step through the process.

Next month the instructions discuss the Quilting and the Binding. As I'll be at Quilt Market and Quilt Festival for almost two weeks, it is not likely mine will even get basted. But my goal is to complete this quilt in 2019 so it does not become another quilt top waiting to be quilted.

Let's quilt.



  1. Spectacular quilt! Have a great time in Houston!

  2. It is a beautiful quilt. And I really like both centers.
    Enjoy Houston!
