39.1 Double BOM(b)February 17, 2016
Two months in a row, I can say that I have been keeping up with the monthly pattern from Ula Lenz for 2016.
This block of the month, BOM for short, is a stained glass hexagon quilt.
So far, most of the quilt is still a mystery. The stained glass patterns we have done so far have featured stars and hexagon and diamond shapes.
This month, I have expanded my “pinks/purples/oranges” batik fabrics to help flush out some colors in the quilt for a later time.
I am doing this quilt with controlled color pallet again, but I am open to using other fabrics than the ones featured here.
Someone commented about the white patches. They are so far, the lightest color that I have wanted to do, it seems like a lot of my bright fabrics are pretty dark, these fabrics are actually light purple in shade.
Proof that I did not just put the same photo in from last month as I did this month.
This is a picture of the triangular 1 sixth of the quilt in progress after the parts were sewn to the paper and none of it was sewn down to each other yet.
The blocks are only available during the current months. Since it’s now February, the block for January should be available for purchase only.
If you click on her link, you may have to switch to English on the website, it seems the default is German. I do this on a desktop in the top righthand corner. The actual blocks themselves, are easy to figure out, pictures make a thousand words.
