Sisters' Ten Block of the Month Finishes by You!

Jan 20, 2014

There are a few finishes starting to show up in the Sisters' Ten Block of the Month flickr group.  For anyone who isn't familiar, Sisters' Ten is the BOM I ran last year in 2013.  For anyone who is still piecing this quilt or thinking about quilting it, I wanted to show some of the finishes to help inspire you.  I love that people are taking the quilt I designed and making it their own!

So first, as a little reminder, this is my finished quilt - the sample from which all the block patterns were written.  Finishing instructions were given for the modern setting shown below.

This quilt was done by Marty of Marty's Fiber Musings.  You may recognize it because it was featured on Craftsy's blog post on online Block of the Month Clubs earlier in January.  I love how the background of the blocks is different from the negative space on the quilt.  It makes the blocks really stand out!

This next quilt was made by Beth of Yellow Tortoise Quilts.  Beth also made this quilt her own.  She omitted the sashing and added 6 additional blocks along the diagonal.  She gave this quilt to her sister, and the additional blocks represent their daughters.  Isn't that sweet?  Also, if you look closely, you can see she straight line quilted on a diagonal in the blocks and then added some fancy work in the middle negative space.  So lovely Beth!

This quilt is Ella's quilt of Throw a Wench in the Works.  Ella finished this quilt waaaaay ahead of time - go you!  What I like about Ella's quilt is the completely different color scheme (from the pattern sample).  She used cool and modern colors with that neon that I just love.  The pink binding really makes it pop.  I love how the same quilt can feel completely different with a new palette of color choices.

And the last quilt I want to show you was made by my dear Mom! :)  I taught her to quilt in 2010 just before I began blogging - and we have been quilting fanatics together ever since.  I wanted to show you her quilt, not only for the beautiful use of the soft yellows and Joel Dewberry prints, but because her zig zag quilting is amazing!  I kept getting phone calls and texts with status updates on this endeavor.  It takes a lot of patience - but look at how worth it it is in the end!

Also, I wanted to let you know that I have been consolidating all of the Sisters' Ten patterns into one large document.  I will be taking the individual Sisters' Ten block patterns down from my shop and adding only the consolidated document.  This will allow for more patterns in my pattern shop!  The tutorials will still be on my blog and if you need the individual PDFs of each block, they will be available on Craftsy.

Just wanted to let you know I'd be moving some things around.  If you want to order the individual block PDFs for Sisters' Ten from my shop, please do so within the next week.  As always, if you have any questions, please do let me know! Pin It


  1. I had much fun participating in your BOM 2013. A great way to get a completed quilt with no pressure whatsoever knowing that I had only two blocks to make each month. I love seeing my finished quilt posted here. Thanks, Annemarie, for all the work you did to make it a great year to quilt.

  2. Love, love, love! I still intend to make a mini-quilt from some of the Sisters Ten patterns and am now so inspired. Your mom's zig zag quilting is striking with visual interest. Thanks for sharing!

  3. They all look amazing!!! Different quilting too - and it all works! So glad I'm in your BOM 2014 edition! ;)

  4. Thank you for sharing my quilt! I love all the versions. Zig zag quilting never occurred to me. It's lovely and now on my list of "will tries."

  5. I know this BOM is finished, but I will be making this with 9 inch blocks...ordered the label today. Thanks for a great series...crystalbluern at onlineok dot com
