"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:

Fabric selection is always a scary thing for some I think . I am doing a class on it in Jan for our guild . I sort of how to make a go choice for you . One of the things I often suggest is pick a omg !!! Fabric that beautiful print you just had to buy and select your fabrics from its colour palette. Another helpful hint if you don’t have a fabric stash is to go to the paint chip area at your hardware store and grab the paint chip pallets that speaks to you the most. I hope this will help some .

Thank you for all the information on your blog Barbara, it's very much appreciated. I am still undecided what fabrics to use, I'm considering blue and white or red and white at the moment, I love the scrappy look too. Once I have the first month pattern I'll decide as I'll be eager to start.
Kind regards Pam

Great question, NanaPie! Pattern says 3.25 yards for border, Kit includes 4 yards so you have the same fabric for binding. There is also a narrow inner border, Kit includes one yard which is very generous.

Thanks for asking.

Barbara, thank you for this information! One question: how much yardage for the outside red (as shown in the kit options) border?
