Completed Quilts: Eight Hands Around Alcotts At War


Hands All Around by Becky Brown

We're done! Done ! Done! with the 2021 BOM Hands All Around.
The model makers have been finished for quite a while and here's the 
Big Reveal.

See more at our Facebook group

Pat Styring

All the blocks by Janet Perkins

Denniele Bohannon

And by granddaughter Addie done in her 11th year

And readers are getting finished (or almost finished)

Brenda Douglass Essinger used Denniele's
 ambitious Improved Nine-Patch set

Jeanne Arnieri used the Quilt of Many Stars Set---
quilted, bound and in the dining room.

Ana Maria Fereo used primary colors and a nine-patch set.

Rose's for Dianannie by Meliss Swanson
Meliss did a medallion set in memory of her much missed mother-in-law.
She set each star in the center of a triangular frame to give more design
consistency to the group.

Carrie Berbeck Fala
The Western Star set

Susan Gilbert

Lots of readers in France like Christine Laine
The Orchard Strips Set

Marie Boop

France Aubert

And in Kansas

Nancy Austin Swanwick
She modified the block corners.

Nancy Phillips's is quilted and bound and on its way to a veteran.

As is Robbin Hatchett's

Robin Leftwich's: 11 blocks in the Offset Set

Elsie Ridgely alternated with a four-pointed star block.

Roberta Brunett used seasonal prints and a cheerfully wonky set
for a Christmas quilt.

Waiting for borders....

Laura Chegas

Sonita Carlson

We had 12 sets in the 12 months.

Here's a post on all the free block patterns and sets:

And you can buy the pattern in my Etsy shop:

I'm doing your offset setting but haven't gotten to that point yet! I enjoy looking at what everyone has done. So neat! I hope to post my finished blocks before the New Year.

I just love seeing all the different interpretations of this or any quilt. What a great BOM this one is!

Nancy Swanwick said...

It always amazes me to see the variations that happen with a set of great blocks. As always, this was an enjoyable and educational experience.
