Guild BOM 2019

It's one of my favourite seasons 'guild season'. My guild had there first meeting of the year on Monday Sept 9th. I look forward to catching up with fellow members and seeing what they've made over the summer.
It is also the time I introduce the new BOM for the year, this is the fifth year I have designed the BOM. My guild is more traditional than modern and as such more members join in making the BOM if it is a more traditional setting.

2019-20 BOM
This years quilt I made in my favourite I picked up the greens from Caroline Quilts when she was a vendor at our quilt show in June. They are mostly Northcotts you can read about them here.

A few closeups of some of the blocks and the quilting.

straight lines and curves

swirls and  a loop with echoing out

I tried not to overthink my quilting and just had fun

  1. First of all, thank you for showing us the four previous years’ quilts! For some reason I don’t remember 2018 and man I love it! It’s also good to see 2016 to remind myself I need to get that done. This year’s is beautiful; your guild is very lucky to have you. The quilting, Cindy is just exquisite as always. Thank you for the close-ups.

  2. Beautiful green quilt! Very nice quilts that you have made and designed! Lucky Guild Members

  3. What fun to have a little mini quilt show sitting here on my lap(top). Thanks for sharing the beautiful quilts!

  4. All truly pretty quilts. I especially love the green one, as green is also my favorite color.

  5. Love the checkerboard border! Thanks for sharing the previous years' quilts.

  6. So many gorgeous blocks, Cindy!!! I have participated in BOMs. They are a mixed bag. You know I like some blocks more than others. I am actually enjoying the Rainbow Scrap Challenge which is like a BOM but I choose the blocks. Yes, I am a control freak:-) Have a great weekend!!!
