Laid Back Block of the Month featuring the Rise Above Quilt

Ride Above Quilt

Rise Above Quilt angled

This program is full

When we put together this BOM we were thinking "laid back" and "fun"! The Rise Above Quilt designed by Charisma Horton is a fun, approachable quilt that you will look forward to working on each month of the program.

What makes this "laid back"? There are lots of large pieces, it's all solids so you don't have to worry about directional fabrics or fussy cutting, and all the blocks are straight-foward machine piecing like squares, half square triangles, or flying geese!

The finished quilt measures 96" x 96", making it big enough to put on a bed. We just love the bright colors and fun block layout.

BOM Timeline

This BOM runs for 10 months, from November 2020 to August 2021.

The quilt is made starting in the center with the large blocks, which is the perfect way to ease into this project during the holiday season. You'll feel a sense of accomplishment but won't need to devote a ton of time to completing November and December's blocks!

The BOM includes the instructions and all the fabric needed for the top and binding, plus instructional videos and access to our BOM member group on Facebook.

What's included for participants?

  • Monthly fabric & pattern packs (includes all fabric needed for the top and binding of the quilt)
  • Access to our members-only Laid Back BOM group on Facebook
  • Instructional videos on half square triangle and flying geese blocks (vieweable in the Facebook group)
  • Discounts on related tools and supplies that help make this quilt
  • An exclusive Gotham Quilts designed commemorative gift in month 10 (it's a surprise!)

It's not a race, but...

The first BOM member to finish their quilt top after the program ends wins edge-to-edge longarming of their quilt FOR FREE!
