"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'm so excited to start this BOM. I decided to use batiks for the blocks and creamy for the backgrounds.

Tissura is definitely a luxury and exclusive fabric site - fun to look through and very pricey...

Hi, everyone. Having a big stash as well! I can't make some photos right now, unfortunately. When I needed different kinds of quality fabrics, I bought most of it from https://tissura.com/ I like crafting so I still make some cute stuff out of it. I sell most of the stuff I make!

I think using wool for the applique is a great idea! I'll have to check my wool stash to see if I have enough.

Evelyn has selected this lovely stash of fat quarters she has been collecting for a long time. She also has felted wool from old garments for the applique' shapes. And a bunch of backgrounds she has collected. Looks good to me.

So... yesterday was Small Business Saturday, and I always support my LQS on that day. My husband doesn't even blink when I get up early on that Saturday and head to town. I really wanted to get the neutrals that the BOM requires and I _never_ have in my stash. So I looked at the description for the kids very carefully. The photo shows about half colors and half neutrals. And it says there are 23 yards in the kit, and then another 5 yards for the border. So I"m figuring I"ll need at least half of the 23 yards in neutrals. I looked around through the Christmas fabric and the beach fabric and found neutrals that seemed like they would play well together. All were 40% off, and I got 2 yards of each, 16 yards in all. My LQS is Inspire Quilting in Plant City, FL. They're great people and I feel like I got a good start on what I"ll need. I'm looking forward to Dec 4 and seeing how close I came. This should last me until the next sale anyway. The colors are about 1/3 of the stash I'm prepping to go with it. I've won fat quarters from Row by Row for the past 3 years at different quilt shops, so I'm looking forward to using a bunch of them.

Show us your fabric plan for Afternoon Delight right here.

A detailed blog post is coming December 4, 2019 with all the details you need to prepare for the release of Afternoon Delight January 1, 2020. The link to that blog will be posted here that day.

My monthly samples will be made from these Red, White and Blue fabrics

And, just like you, I have no idea why this photo is upside down--it started out right side up. But you get the idea.
