Important info about Seeing Stars BOM


February 9, 2015  

        We passed out fabric and instructions yesterday for the last block of your Sarah & Mary are Seeing Stars BOM quilt. Wow, this year sure has flown by!

        For those who are doing Mary's version of the quilt: You received in your fabric for February the blue pindot needed for your blocks. We used up every bit of the blue set aside for the BOM and are unable to get any more of it because the fabric has been discontinued by the manufacturer. We recommend saving the blue for your last block and measuring five times before you cut.

        Next month, we'll be working on the setting of your quilt. You will need at least 21" of your background fabric to cut all the strips needed to fill in. The folks doing Mary's version of the BOM will need a bit more (another 14" or so) if they choose to do the extra background around the quilt. We took into account the setting pieces (and extra for Mary's BOM) when calculating the background for your BOM quilts so you should have what you need, but we wanted to let you know so you can plan for this month and next.

        As always, if you have any questions, please email, call or stop by the shop and we'll be happy to help!

        Happy sewing!
        Sarah & Mary

P.S. For those who are receiving your blocks via mail, we fell a little behind when Sarah was out but will be shipping them to you ASAP.
