Christmas BOM quilt
This 10-week program will have a new part each week. Full instructions in this BOM pattern include full details for a Feathered Star block and various blocks to make either a one border quilt or two border quilt as shown in the photo. The Feathered Star block completed at 36" square with no borders makes a perfect Christmas wall hanging or table piece. The Star finished with mitered borders (instructions for perfect miters included) is ideal as a lap quilt or cuddle rug and the full-sized quilt with block borders makes a beautiful bed display.
Layout, block sizings to include your own multi-sized blocks, and block resources are included with individual block instructions and variations.
