What is a Quilt BOM?
There are many acronyms in the world of quilting, but I think to the outside world, a 'Quilt BOM' might be one of the weirder ones.
BOM is short for Block Of the Month
Ok, but what is a Block Of the Month?
A BOM is a course/club where you make a specific quilt pattern over a specific time frame (for example, 6 or 12 months). Normally the rate is one new block a month until the quilt is complete.
More complex quilt designs might make take longer to complete or release multiple blocks a month.
It's a great way of pacing out a more complicated, multi block quilt pattern.
There is often enhanced support/tuition provided by the quilt designer/teacher and is a fun way to learn new quilting techniques and develop your current quilty skills.
As a bonus you get to meet and sew along with new quilty friends. What's not to love?!
