Well it's time to share another finished Skill Builder Block of the Month quilt! I think I say this every time I finish a quilt, but this was the most fun and challenging quilt that I have made and designed yet. Out of all the things I do at Pile O' Fabric my utmost favorite is the Skill Builder Block of the Month. I enjoy seeing an idea I have come to life, not only in my version of the quilt but in your versions too. I also really love the quilt-as-you-go format of the Skill Builder Block of the Month. I have very painful joint issues so there is no way I would ever be able to machine quilt as densely as I have on the BOM quilts if I were quilting an entire quilt top. Quilting one little block at a time eliminates any drag, allowing you to make dense beautiful designs with ease.
This year's Block of the Month was a bit different because of my unexpected 8+ month break during my complicated pregnancy, but I hope that it was still a really fun and educational experience for everyone who participated. I am planning for a 2017 Skill Builder BOM, however in all future Skill Builder's you will have access to every single lesson from the start of the BOM and can optionally work month-by-month or all in one week if you like.
I put together a quick video to give you a peek into the process of making the Technicolor Galaxy Quilt. The video is fast forwarded and very fast so it is not meant to be a tutorial or for instruction by any means, but I thought it would be neat for anyone interested in the process.
