"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 am from southeastern North Carolina. Looking forward to the 2020 BOM. I will be using scraps from my stash as I have put myself on a fabric diet for awhile!

Hi, I am Carol from north central Iowa. I am looking forward to starting Afternoon Delight and meeting new friends and renewing some old quilting friendships. I have been a TQS member since 2007. The past few years I have not been very active and when I saw this quilt displayed at IQF in Houston this Fall I knew I had to participate. I fell in love with it.

I thought it would be a great quilt to work on practicing the importance value plays in quilt design. When I first saw "Afternoon Delight" I was filled with feelings of warm and cozy, with lots of character and charm. So I went to my friend "Google" and typed in the words, "warm", "cozy", "full of charm", and "relaxing". What popped up on the screen intrigued me and brought me to a time that was simple and welcoming. I loved the rustic feel and the soft color palette. I started looking for fabrics with the farmhouse character. I decided to use a neutral grey palette and have chosen Primitive Gatherings Urban Farmhouse prints.

I look forward to a fun 2020 with all of you.

Hi all I am in Desoto county Mississippi which is a suburb of Memphis tn.

I'm so excited to start this afternoon delight! I finished a project just before christmas. I did not want to start another and decided to wait for this BOM.

Lol the anticipation is killing me.

I have been a member since the beginning, and this will be my second BOM I have done. I'm still working on the first one, it is the 2009 one, however, I just started that in Jan of this year. I have 3 or 4 more months to go, but I work on more than just one month at a time. But it won't be done before the end of this year obviously.
I hope to not fall too far behind on this BOM, but knowing me, I probably won't get it completed in 2020.

I live in Colorado Springs CO and am retired. I try to do some sewing every day, but already have so many other projects I'm working on, and for 2020 my goal is to finish up some UFOs. I wanted to do this BOM because I have recently started getting interested in doing applique, so thought this would be a great way to get some experience.

I just joined, and this will be my first BOM ever. I'll try to stick with using fabrics from my stash. Since this is scrappy, I think that should work! I live in Southern California - my best gardening season is October-April, so I may get off to a slow start, but catch up with the weather gets too hot for gardening.

Hi-- I've been a member of The Quilt Show since the beginning, and I made the 2009 BOM, "Stars for a New Day". I'm from Tampa, Florida. I pulled a bunch of bright novelty prints from my stash for a class I took this summer, and then didn't use any of it, due to creative differences with the teacher. I'm going to need to find a neutral once we get measurements, but am excited to get started.

It is interesting reading some of the posts and I wondered about everyone and where they are from. I am in Toronto Canada. i have been an unactive member for quite a few years here but I hope that with this new block of month we can meet new friends, but have been a member since 2007 hard to believe!
I hope that the quilt show will have some guest speakers with applique hints and suggestions this year while we work on our project nothing is better than doing some hand work and watching a little Quilt show segment.
Technology has made it that I can take it where I go and watch while I am on my lunch break while working on my hand work.
