2021 Beach BOM has a name: Beach Dreams
Balmy breezes …. Sunshine …. The soothing swish of waves
brushing the shore …. The music of sea birds in the air accompanied by the slap
of flip-flops against one’s heels … The chime of sail and flag riggings gently
hitting their masts …. The tangy scent of salt and seaweed in the air …
Connect The Blocks and Morning Glory Designs are excited to
partner again in 2021 to bring you this sea-worthy Block of the Month! After a tumultuous 2020, aren’t we all ready
for some calm? Our beachy BOM represents the easy-going life at the beach.
This will be a 12-part series that will include piecing,
applique, and some paper-piecing. It’s
appropriate for confident beginners and seasoned quilters alike and when it’s
complete you’ll have a beautiful large lap throw or wall hanging (approximately
68” square) to give someone special or keep for yourself.
Click on the 2021 BOM tab at the top of the page for more details.
Sign ups are open now, and the first block (Dolphins) will go out January 15, 2021. You may choose to get monthly digital downloads, or have a paper copy mailed to your home (or beach) address.
