"Love the 2018 BOM. From start to finish the process was very clear. Videos supported the written materials and the sharing among people from all around the world added additional support and inspiration."
"I had so much fun with the 2018 BOM! The email reveal at the beginning of each month was like getting a little present! Some months were challenging, others were easy-peasy but the final outcome was creative, colorful and beautiful. Rebecca’s attention to detail is incredible...handouts, videos and even a place to post our progress! She gave me so much more than I expected! "
"BOM 2018 is my third class with Becca, one of my favorite quilt teachers. Her projects are interesting and inspiring and her commitment to sharing her techniques, ideas and even her rare mistakes, makes each session a learning time. I’m looking forward to 2019 BOM!"
"The Rainbow Triangle BOM has been a great way to learn new types of piecing to create an often overlooked block shape, triangles, with everything from handouts to video instructions. It has been fun trying to work out each month how the different coloured pieces will go together, and the end result is a gorgeous, unusual and vibrant quilt."
"I'm new to quilting, so starting a quilting project was daunting for me. But along came the Rainbow Triangle BOM! I signed up and have thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. Plus I will have completed my first quilt! I found the lessons were very well organised. The videos are great as you can actually see the process. Rebecca is an awesome teacher, very well organised and thorough. I have learnt so much and can't wait to start the 2019 BOM."
"The 2018 Rainbow Triangle BOM has been pure enjoyment. I took a class previously online with Rebecca and wanted more. And now I have signed up for the 2019 BOM challenge to continue with the enjoyment. Rebecca is a very good teacher, thorough, charismatic, approachable. Would recommend anyone at any level of sewing expertise to join in!"
How long is the program?
The BOM is 9 months.
There will be a bonus pre-program lesson on color planning and a bonus post program lesson on quilting and finishing.
What techniques will be covered?
Techniques will include piecing and freezer paper piecing. We will also be covering how to piece a triangle quilt top together.
How do I access the BOM website?
The BOM program is set up as a virtual workshop. Once you sign up you will have access to the course platform. You'll be able to set up a profile and say "Howdy!" in the private Facebook Group.
On the third friday of Months 1-9, you'll receive an email with links to the monthly videos and PDFs. Or you can just go straight to the BOM course platform.
What supplies do I need?
You'll need a copy of Modern Triangle Quilts. (Sold separately. Note: you'll find a coupon code on the "Welcome" page after you register.)
The Materials Lists are available, click here.
There will be optional kits available for purchase on December 14th as well.
You can make this quilt using fabrics you already own.
What skill level is required?
Since I will be posting monthly instructional videos, I'd say a confident beginner can participate.
Beginners! Check out Lisa's testimonial above. :)
Will this pattern be available for sale apart from the BOM?
No. This pattern is exclusive to the Stargazer BOM program.
How long will I have access to the BOM?
After the BOM is over, you'll have lifetime access to the workshop. So, feel free to work at your own pace!
What are the size options?
The quilt finishes at 80'' x 80''. I'll have 60'' x 60'' and 40'' x 40'' options available. Please note the smaller sizes will be made with smaller triangles as opposed to being made with fewer triangles.
How do I connect with other participants?
