2021 Old School BOM Discussion and Photos
Join us in making the Old School Blocks of the Month during 2021. The patterns come out on the 12th of the month and are free for a month. (Small fee after that.) They will be on the Persimmon Dreams blog.
This thread is to share progress, pictures, and any problems we run into. Hurry... month 1 is going on now. Post and let us know if you are joining us."

Ok! Here's my first block! This one is scrappy, but ideally I would like to make 1) scrappy, 1) civil war fabrics, and 1) 1930's fabrics every month. This is my first, but I will be making the CW and 1930s versions soon.

SBG, Oh! I like the colors of that block. Really rich. And I'm fond of the plaid, in green no less, my favorite color. I'm looking forward to seeing your other color-ways. I guess I have three weeks to decide about making more than one top with this BOM. I'll think about it.

It's nice to find a dedicated thread for this BOM. Great! Here's my January block.

Thanks for sharing about this thread! I have the first block downloaded and just might try to get it done this week (maybe even tomorrow since I will probably be snowed in)...I do have some fabrics in mind and yes a couple are from one of my centers for the new RR. :) It was fabric I bought when a local quilt shop was going out of biz so I got several in the line...

Welcome Carrie! Can’t wait to see what you come up with for this first block.

carriem, I hadn't put away my fabric from doing the Merry Mayhem NYD mystery quilt. So I just incorporated some of it into my block. It was laying there on the table, so I just picked it up and used it. I have a few more scraps, so I'll just leave them on the table for February's block. Am I getting lazy? :-)

Queenbarbiej, Cool! I'm looking forward to seeing your pics!

I had planned to do this BOM. So glad there is a thread where I can follow along with others! More fun.

Welcome QueenBarbieJ and Blueridgebeverly! Yes, it's definitely more fun with friends. Please post your January blocks once you get them made. https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/smile.png
