September BOM

We are excited to have Leslie leading our BOM this year!

Spooky Houses                 

For our first meeting of the 2020-2021 OMQG season, we're going to make a Halloween quilt! This has been on my quilting to-do list forever, and the timing is just right to get something done for this Halloween this year.

We'll follow Allison Harris's tutorial for her "Stay Home" block from her excellent, long-running blog, Cluck Cluck Sew. This quilting blog was my first real introduction to modern, fresh quilting design and I still go back to Allison's work all the time! And house blocks seem like a good kick-off to our At Home OMQG meetings, too!

The link to Allison's free tutorial for 7.5" x 8.5" unfinished blocks (and the whole quilt!) is here: https://cluckclucksew.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Stay-Home-Quilt-Pattern.pdf

Instructions for block assembly are on p. 4 of this pattern.

Our colours are as follows:
- Houses: Halloween colours, prints or solids (such as orange, purple, grey, green, white, or Halloween prints)
- Background: Black, or black with white; prints or solids - it's your choice!

You can find a printable version of the instructions here
