Welcome to Month 3 for the Star In The West BOM Quilt-Along, brought to you by Swan Amity Studios and Gorram Quilts!
We are very excited to be working with our sponsor, American Made Brand fabrics, for this QAL. AMB make beautiful solid fabrics that are rich in color and so soft. The fabric is sourced and manufactured in the United States. Coincidentally, they’re also located in Seattle. They will be providing a few prizes throughout the year, but more will be revealed later.
Month 3’s pattern will be emailed out later this morning. If you don’t receive it, please check your junk folder and then send us an email or comment below, and we’ll investigate.
For Month 1 and 2, we assembled the center star. Month 3 is our first border. We will be doing 2 sets of flying geese borders, 1 for the right side and 1 for the bottom.
Here are my unattached borders in the AMB solids.
Once you have made your borders, you attach them onto the center star. One thing I love about this quilt is how you add the borders as you make them, so there isn’t a “month 12 – assemble everything you’ve made over the past year” step.
We have a Flick group that you are welcome to join and share your progress.
Also, if you post on social media, please use #StarInTheWestQuilt.
