Starting the Begonia Quilt

Every year, the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild does a block of the month quilt.

And each year I start them, but I am very behind on finishing them! Like the 2016 BOM… and the 2017 BOM… I’ve finished all the blocks for those quilts, but I haven’t finished the quilt! I did finish the 2015 BOM!

This year we’re doing the Begonia Quilt designed by Stephanie from Satterwhite Quilts. And this quilt is looking just like her! She loves a HST!

January and February was a lot of cutting! And not a lot of sewing.

And a LOT of half square triangles! A LOT… And I think there’s more to come!

This one is kinda like a medallion quilt. Start in the center and then each month is a new border. The other thing about this one is it’s a MYSTERY quilt! No one has any idea what it is going to look like! You should check out the hashtag, #seamqgbom2019 to see all the different versions. It’s so cool how different they all look even though we’re all making the same quilt!

ok, the lighting is really off for these last two shots, but just when I was thinking it needed a pop of something.. The orange came in!

  1. i love this – that orange really pops it – the colors are beautiful together and the grey and white are soothing against the vivid turquoise and orange.

  2. Love where this is headed!! Can’t wait for the next row!
