Mary's Seeing Stars Block of the Month



An Intown Quilters original BOM! We spent weeks trying to find just the perfect block-of-the-month program for 2014. The common thread running through all the quilts we liked? Stars! We fell in love with the Starfall pattern from Fresh Lemon Quilts and contacted designer Faith Jones about using it for this year’s BOM. When she said “yes!,” we immediately dove in to create this year’s Seeing Stars BOM.

A variety of pieced stars – 10 different styles – in four different sizes make up this wildly fun and eye-catching block-of-the-month quilt. It’s a modern take on a sampler quilt, with a mix of techniques that will expand your quilting skills. At the end, you’ll have a gorgeous quilt to show off!

Seeing Stars BOM is led by Sarah Phillips and Mary Abreu and features two colorways. Mary’s take showcases a newsprint background with stars made of a defined palette of zig-zags and polka dots with complementary solids. Her quilt is slightly bigger than Sarah’s with an additional 1.5” frame of the background fabric. See Sarah's Seeing Stars Block of the Month for the alternate colorway of this BOM quilt. Mary's Seeing Stars finishes at approximately 61-1/2"x73-1/2".

Seeing Stars BOM participants can choose either colorway for their quilt. If you would prefer a solid Kona background for either Seeing Stars quilt, please contact Sarah or Mary.

This BOM meets on the second Sunday of the month at 2-4 p.m starting April 13th. We will have a short sewing session with the Seeing Stars BOM.

Seeing Stars BOM participants are welcome to attend our general BOM sit-and-sew on the 1st Tuesday of the month from 11a-5p. Sarah and/or Mary are usually at the shop on those days until aout 2pm and will be happy to answer questions or offer tips on constructing blocks.

This year, we’re adding Flickr groups for each of our BOM programs. We’ll post the latest block additions each month. BOM participants can join the Flickr groups and post their blocks as they progress throughout the year. Because the group is public, you can view the blocks even if you’re not on Flickr.
