We made it to the end of 2020! It’s time to finish up the BOM for the year by putting it together and adding the borders. I really hope you enjoyed this year’s project and you will join me for next year’s as well.
2021 BOM Introduction
Speaking of next year, here is a look at the 2021 BOM:
The fun thing about this project is you do not have to make the large wall hanging. The blocks are good stand alone projects that you can turn into small wall hangings or pillows! Like this block here… it would make a really pretty pillow for a couch or bed:
I hope you join me for some more wool applique fun in 2021 …. hey, that rhymes! The starter instructions with fabric requirements for the background will be posted by January 4th on the BOM page of my web site. The first 2021 block will post to the page on January 15th.
If you want the block reveals early, be sure to sign up for my monthly newsletter on my web site. Just look to your right on the sidebar right now and you will see the sign-up form. By doing this, you will get the block instructions a week earlier!
2020 BOM Finishing
Here’s my finished 2020 BOM quilt top:
The finishing instructions include how to piece the blocks together into the wall hanging above. I added a simple border of dark brown with a blue Churn Dash design that reflects the smaller Churn Dash borders on some of the blocks. This border is optional. If you want, you can create your own border.
To finish the 2020 BOM, find the instructions here: 2020 BOM Finishing Instructions.
If you missed any of the block releases for 2020, the blocks will remain on my BOM page for free until Thursday, January 14th. After that, the 2020 pattern will go on sale in my store as a whole on February 1st.
So there you have it! I hope you enjoy finishing this BOM and you will join me next year for 2021’s addition. Once again I will have wool only kits for the blocks for sale in my store.
Addie and I are looking forward to seeing you here next year.
Happy New Year and Happy Stitching!
