"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 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" inches square.

Let's use this Topic "Afernoon Delight Show and Tell" as a place to show off your beautiful blocks. That way, you know where to come to see what everyone is doing.

The topics that apply to each month are a good place to ask questions or make suggestions for each block.

AND when you post your photos to Social Media, like Instagram, Facebook, etc., use either of these hash tags so everyone there will be able to find our wonderful work:

I have gotten behind on Sizzle but will still eagerly begin Afternoon Delight. Sue Garman is a treasured designer and inspiration. I am looking forward to pulling some small scale prints from my stash ( I have been a 'real" quilter for 30+ years but dabbled as a teenager as well.) I, of course, realistically will find the need to supplement whenever I attend a show or visit a shop! As always I learn a thing or tow from Barbara along the way!

As for this community, I have found nothing but encouragement and inspiration here. I am not a very frequent poster or even lurk as often as I should! I will make it a goal to post and read on a more regular basis in 2020 to both benefit others and receive the benefits of community for myself.

I have driven through the blue ridge mountains it is gorgeous there! I really have to sit and see the pattern and decide on my selections I usually pick so,e,then pick some more and then more. I have been very fortunate that I have been in a fat quarter club with Pieces of the Past quilt store and getting repro fabrics I will be using these. But also have picked up some of the new French general fabrics too!

This is so exciting Jan 2020 cannot come fast enough. It is cool but lovely here in Ontario all the snow we got has melted and it feels like late fall weather

Dear Afternoon Delighters,
Thank you for your empathy and encouragement.
I am hunting down small scale reproduction fabrics and looking forward to the adventure of making this remarkable quilt.

Hi Robyn, thanks for this question I am sure alot of quilters have the "collection" that needs to be busted I am with you so it will be a real treat to see the differences in the quilt with everyone using their collection of fabrics. My collection of fq are doing the happy dance because this is the project they have been waiting for!

Robyn, there will be a blog post coming soon with the specific fabric requirements. This is a great scrap buster that will allow you to use your stash.

Hello! My name is Robyn and I am relatively new to The Quilt Show however I did participate in an earlier BOM from Sue Garman namely "Halo". I loved the experience and I love my quilt. I am hoping to take part in the 2020 Bom. My question is about the fabric kit.
I have an abundance of fabric and as I live in Australia fabric is very costly. Can you please advise the number of colours in the kit and also the quantity of each fabric supplied in the kit.

Sincerely Robyn.

Hi everyone,
Judith I am so very sorry to hear of your losses, I hope we can offer support and friendship to you while doing this BOM. Beverly my dear friend I am so pleased that you are doing the BOM, Barbara (just a heads up) I may need help on piecing again, and it will be lovely getting to know other TQS members in the group. I'm still thinking about fabric choices but I'll probably not decide until we get the introduction packet. Ellenceleste. I too am a stationary fan (office supplies) so I know how you feel any excuse to buy a book and art supplies.
