2021 Nebula Plus Quilt Block of the Month

Nebula Quilt BOM

The Gotham Quilts Nebula Plus BOM Program

Jaybird Quilts has designed an awesome new block of the month quilt using the upcoming Tula Pink True Colors fabric collection!

This quilt is a perfect project for advanced beginners to intermediate-level quilters -- you'll get lots of practice cutting with rulers and sewing accurate 1/4" seams. And don't worry, NO y-seams!

What's the "plus" part? The two exclusive pillow sham patterns that Andrea has designed to coordinate with the Nebula quilt!

BOM Timeline

This BOM runs for 11 months, from January to November 2021.

The quilt is composed of 9 unique diamond blocks that make the center star. In months 1-9 you will make 2 of each of these diamonds, month 10 is the background, and month 11 is the pillow shams.

The BOM includes the instructions, with full-size templates, and enough fabric to make a queen size (97" x 96") quilt. Instructions are also included for making the quilt in a lap or king size (you will need to purchase additional background fabric for the king size).

Also included are fabric and instructions to make the 2 coordinating pillow shams, which fit standard 26" x 20" bed pillows.

What's included for participants?

  • How-to videos from the designer, Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts
  • 10 fabric packs (includes all fabric needed for the top and binding of the quilt, and the top, binding, and back of 2 pillow shams)
  • Discounts on related tools and supplies, like the Jaybird Quilts Sidekick and Hex N More Rulers that can be used to make this quilt more easily
  • An exclusive Tula Pink designed Nebula BOM quilt label
  • An exclusive Tula Pink designed 18" x 14" polka dot project bag (great for storing your tools or fabrics)
  • An exclusive Gotham Quilts designed commemorative gift in month 10 (it's a surprise!)

It's not a race, but...
