 We have come to the end of another wonderful Block of the Month quilt, Afternoon Delight, designed by the late Sue Garman.

Margo Clabo, a Star Member from the very beginning, has completed hers and posted it on Facebook:

As people get this quilt top finished, there is discussion about how to quilt it. I have written two blog posts about how mine are quilted: My Afternoon Delight quilts  and Ruler Work on My Red, White and Blue smaller quilt

Here is the edge-to-edge design Margo used on hers. The quilt design is very busy, the pieces are very small so edge-to-edge is perfectly acceptable for this quilt:

A quilt is not done until it has a LABEL--I firmly believe that. I have written about this here: Label Your Quilts. Margo made a beautiful label:

As you get your quilt done, please post it on the Forum---it is really inspiring to see these quilts get completed. Even several years down the road, people post their completed Block of the Month quilts--we can all understand why some projects just take longer to complete than others. The 2020 Block of the Month Forum is The Quilt Show Forum for 2020 BOM.  When sharing on social media, use #afternoondelight2020bom so lots of folks can see these quilts.

Don't miss the super DISCOUNT price for a one year membership--only $39. Very soon this deep discount will be replaced by the standard price, $49.95 for a year. Join NOW and save.


If you are a Star Member of The Quilt Show and have not downloaded, saved or printed the 12 months of patterns, be sure you do so before December 31, 2020. After that date, the rights to the pattern revert to the designer and will no longer be free for Star Members. The cost to buy these patterns is about $80--so your membership to The Quilt Show comes with a terrific added bonus. 

If you are considering becoming a Star Member so you can make Color My World, the 2021 Block of the Month quilt, designed by Wendy Williams, join before December 31, 2020, and save the 2020 BOM--in case you ever want to make this beautiful quilt--you have FREE access to the 2020 BOM until December 31, 2020 and on January 1, 2021, you will get FREE access to the 2021 quilt pattern:

I look forward to working with all those eager to make Color My World--a fun and entertaining quilt that teaches a lot. See you January 1, 2021, when the Show rolls out and the first month's pattern becomes available.

Let's quilt.
