The "Like, Totally" Quilt BOM

Nothing like finishing one guild block-of-the-month just in time to start another! I'm pretty excited, though, as this year's BOM is designed by my good buddy Louise @imfeelincrafty. This year, the BOM is more of a sewalong than mystery, for a change. With a bit of an '80s feel, it's called "Like, Totally" quilt.

Louise provided a nice swatch card for us, and in addition to swatches of the fabrics I'm using, I also added the names, in case I need more along the way. As you can see, I'm using Kona cotton solids in Raisin, Rich Red, Lipstick, Pacific, and Lupine, with a variety of low volume fabrics for backgrounds.

February's blocks were pretty quick to sew up, and are all trimmed to 8.5" square. 

It's been fun to see the reaction to Louise's quilt design, and even non-members wanting to join us in the sewalong. Which is great! The link is open to all if you happen to be interested too!


  1. Oh, very fun! I think your palette is going to result in a really delightful version. Like, Totally! ;)

  2. Fun colors, lovely Kona Lipstick for a wow! Lupine and Raisin too, well they're all going to be exciting to work/play with.

  3. Oh, I love seeing the colors you selected! They're warm and rich. Such a lovely combination. I'm using Painter's Palette "Lipstick" as one of my colors too. We'll be makin' lip-smackin' good quilts, won't we?!

  4. I love how you always inspire me with your "unusual to me" color palletes that always work in the end and grow on me. Looking forward to see this evolve. The design is really cool. I do not have space to start something new but it sounds soooo fun ;) xo
