Update - As of 11/21/2019 the most popular border choices are: Cadet Blue, followed by Greige, then Red.


Afternoon Delight was one of Sue Garman's favorite patterns. This wonderfully scrappy quilt is truly a delight to make with its combination of simple appliqué blocks and Double Nine-Patch blocks, and modified Shoo Fly blocks. Each month you will work on pieced and appliquéd blocks, and in the final month, you will assemble the blocks and add the outer border. The finished quilt measures approximately 86 1/2" square.

We've put together our kit with 37 different fabrics so you can make your own. The beauty of this kit is that you can place each of the fabrics wherever you like, so every single quilt will be as unique as its maker. Join us to learn, laugh, and quilt in a 12-month experience where we will build our quilts together one month at a time.

My blocks printed out at just under 5 inches. I took them to a copy shop and had them blown up 137% to make each block 6 3/4. Did any of you have to do this?

Sort of leaves us out if we don't care for applique. No thanks.

I finished this quilt in 2016. Really enjoyed making it.
The New England Quilt Museum has the original quilt by Sue Garman herself on Display until 12/29 of this year. It is worth the trip.
