Adventures in the life of a gorram nerd

Welcome to Month 7 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 7’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.

We’re halfway through! I hope you have been enjoying the BOM and your quilt is coming along. This month is a bottom border. They remind me of (oddly colored) diamonds. The way that Swan has you constructing them is kind of cool and much better than dealing with 45 degree angles.

Here is my row in the AMB solids.

After you make your row, attach it onto the bottom of your quilt. Also attach a side and bottom sashing strip.
