Hints, Tips and Tricks for Delilah BOM by Jen Kingwell Month #5

Dear Friends,

The fabric/template kits are available for month #5 Delilah, North Star.  This month we are thrilled to be back to working with straight seams.   But, you will be making 5 blocks.  Hmm, is it a coincidence that we have 5 blocks for month 5 of  Delilah?

Delilah 5

The fabric choices for this month’s blocks are quite extraordinary!   The staff here at the Moose can’t decide which block is their favorite.  We all keep changing our minds.  Deb did a great job of ‘perusing’ the shelves at the Moose to pick the fabrics for this month’s blocks.  It is fun to watch her pet the fabric,  lean her head to one side, and then make the final decision for the fabric combinations.

Every so often I ask “What are you thinking?” when she is selecting for Delilah.   She will explain why she chooses one piece of fabric over another piece.  She will explain that it may be the pattern in the fabric that provides ‘movement’ to the block, or it may be the color values, or that she just ‘likes’ that piece of fabric and wants it in the quilt!

Have fun piecing your blocks together this month.   I will admit that I enjoyed watching these blocks come together and ‘sparkle’ like the North Star.

Til next week, make each day a pieceful day.

Best regards,

Carolyn
