Show 2001 - Delectable Curves and Points - TQS BOM 2017 - The Halo Medallion Quilt

Featuring: Carolyn Hock

Posts On: January 1, 2017


We're kicking off our 2000 series with another fabulous Block of the Month designed by Sue Garman. Sue's quilts are designed as skill builders, and who better to teach us the ins and outs for tackling The Halo Medallion Quilt than TQS member and pattern tester Carolyn Hock. Carolyn has made a number of BOM quilts and other featured quilt projects on TQS. From Curved Flying Geese to Delectable Mountain blocks, Carolyn is here to share some terrific ideas for making your own version of the BOM quilt. 

Do you hate cutting up pretty fabric when it comes to creating a border around a block? In this show, Ricky will also demonstrate how to spice up your block with a square in a square technique.

Show Information

Links to Artists:

Carolyn Hock

Sue Garman (Come Quilt)

From Chapter One:

Ricky shares a technique for inserting a square into a square without the usual seams. This technique is perfect when you don't want to break up a patterned fabric.

From Chapter Two:

Alex and Ricky talk with TQS member and BOM pattern tester, for The Halo Medallion Quilt, Carolyn Hock. She has been a member since the beginning and has made a number of BOM quilts and other featured projects on the site. They take a look at Carolyn's quilts.

From Chapter Three:

Carolyn loves that paper piecing allows her to achieve perfect points and exact size when it comes to making a Sue Garman pattern. She talks about tools that aid in your piecing and shares tips for how to easily remove the paper and how to work with high contrast fabrics to avoid shadowing. Other tips include how to tape together flying geese strips and how to assemble the Delectable Mountains block.

From Chapter Four:

Curved flying geese look daunting, but Carolyn has some tricks to help you stitch them up in no time. Her masking ruler tip comes in handy when squaring up the finished blocks.

After Set:

Carolyn talks about her love of riding a tandem bike with her husband. She also talks about taking the BOM on a family vacation in order to get it completed in time for the unveiling.

YOU showed this technique in a previous ... I think the one with JANE SASSERMAN as you put her fabric inside your square.... THANK YOU for the repeat cause I am sure you refined your technique. Seeing it over again inspired me to try INSETTING focus fabric into a some blocks I am making for a quilt.

I just renewed my membership and can't watch any shows, not even the free ones. I even clicked on
"video problems", still can't watch! I'll try again later, maybe you're having problems.

I, too, have always enjoyed TQS - great ideas, great staff, great guests, great staff, great price, and the best of the best co-hosts. Carolyn is inspirational with her enthusiasm. Can't wait to get started on Sue's BOM. Praying for you, Sue. Keep strong.

Carolyn Hock is a marvelous addition to the show! Her not being a national teacher adds to the benefit of enabling newbies by building self-esteem. She is a breath of sunshine!

Ricky your square in a square in ingenious!

WOW!!! I am SO impressed with Carolyn Hock! Fabulous tips, and I can't believe how comfortable she is before the camera! I've never tried a BOM, but feel inspired to try one now, thanks to her instruction.

I also loved the inset square, Ricky - brilliant! Happy New Year to All!

This is one of the best ever Quilt Show programmes!!
All the way through it I got positive vibes. It was very entertaining AND instructive. Thank you so much to the whole team. It's a wonderful start to 2017.
Please, bring back Carolyn Hock some time!
I have never done one of the BOMs (lack of time), but this time I am very, very tempted!!

Wonderful show!! I got the kit for Christmas and was pretty scared of those flocking geese. You gave some great hints and tricks. Now I am so excited to get started!! Sending best wishes and prayers to Sue.
