Finished Size = 67″ x 79″
Block size = 12″ Finished

Can you see now why the entire quilt is so amazing, beautiful, wonderful, eye-popping, luscious, astonishing, astounding, awesome, breathtaking, fabulous & spectacular quilt 🙂 ?
It’s partially because of the ombré fabrics that go into making each & every quilt block. Like the one shown above. The different shades of red & yellow are because of the blending of one color hue to another. Usually moving tints & shades from light to dark. The other reason why it’s all of those adjectives is because that’s the way that I designed it! I wanted to bring out those ombré fabrics, in the best way I could, by sewing them together with black fabric.
As has been, for the past seven or eight years, Abbi May’s Fabric Shop’s sponsoring my block of the month quilt. She only has a couple of “Midnight Stargazer” quilt kits left in her shop. So if you’re thinking you want to make my 2020 BOM quilt, now’s the time to purchase your quilt kit & get busy labeling your fabrics to start making your “Chained Star” Quilt Block!
The Irish Jig’s Probably the Most Distinctive & Recognizable Dance Style’s Around!
Irish love to dance & the Irish Jig is one of their favorite styles!
This month, “Ye Olde Irish Jig” is the free pattern, that members earn
for completing the Quilt Dash.
This traditionally pieced quilt measures 62″ x 80″ when finished.
The blocks are 12” finished and 12 1/2” unfinished.
This quilt block looks difficult to make, but it uses the Sew‐n‐Slash™ Method, developed by me 🙂 & that makes it sew together in a jiffy!
First you sew together the quilt block above.
Then you’ll sew the FOUR (4) corner’s to the quilt block shown above & once done you’ll Slash off the unused corner’s of the quilt block shown above! It’s as simple (or hard, depending on how you want to look at it) as that!
In order for you to download this free pattern, all you need to do is to create a new account (or login to your current account) at QuiltDash.com & click on the link that says “Join the QuiltDash” (no quotes). Once you’ve done that, you just need to search for the images on the shops/websites/blogs who are participating in this month’s Quilt Dash. It’s really quite simple & a fun thing to do! Not to mention you get to look at some lovely quilty fabrics that you may just want to purchase (I promise not to tell anyone 🙂 )!
Do ya’ll remember reading about “The Good Time Quilters of Blind Bay” before? I wrote about them three separate times right here on my blog.
You can find the previous blog posts here, here & here.They made my original pattern from my sister site BOMquilts.com called “Cinnamon-teen Chocolate Figs & Roses.”
I designed this BOM quilt in 2006 & it’s become a treasured quilt pattern! It’s just one of those timeless patterns that never goes unnoticed! I hear it from so many people that they love my pattern & they love the finished quilt even more!
But “The Good Time Quilters of Blind Bay” are the subject of this post so I’d better get on with the program 🙂
Here’s some pix of their finished quilts & I’m so impressed with how they all turned out! I don’t think any two of them are the same & I know that each one reflects the maker of their individual quilts. Love each & every one of them!
This is a photo of a number of the “Cinnamon-teen Chocolate Figs & Roses” quilts made by some of the members of “The Good Time Quilters of Blind Bay” quilt group!
These next four photos are the individual quilts (most of them) shown above in the group photo.
(Don’t pay too much attention to the distorted quilt photos. Doesn’t mean that they aren’t beautiful! That’s how they came to me.)
This last quilt photo was made by Mandy. Isn’t it stunning?!! Not to discount the other quilters’ quilts. This is just the only one that I was able to get a good pic of.
