Hello everyone! Happy February 12th! The 12th in 2021 is a very special day every month because a new block for the Old School BOM 2021 is released. If you missed all the beginning info you can find out all about this Block of the Month HERE.
I’m thrilled to have Nancy Scott from Masterpiece Quilting as the designer for February.
Nancy shared with us this how to make a Variable Star Block with an Album/Autograph variation. You can see the whole tutorial by heading over to Nancy’s blog post HERE.
I made my Variable Star with Album/Autograph variation. I did use a printed fabric but it’s very light so if I decide to write or add anything to the center it should still be easy to see. I’m pondering a possible applique addition of “#OSBOM” but I’m not quite sure yet. I’ll keep you posted if I decide to add anything to the center.
When you’re finished be sure to share your blocks to social media:
- Instagram: using hashtag #OSBOM21 and please tag me @PersimonDreams
- and/or the new Old School BOM Facebook Group!
And the blocks will continue to come! A new block will be featured on the 12th of each month on different bloggers websites! I have them all linked below but I’ll also post right here on my blog on the 12th of each month to get you in the right spot!
