Welcome to Planet Patchwork's 2010-2011 Block of the Month, "Oh, My Stars," by Diane Hundley.

Welcome to the 10th year of BOMs on Planet Patchwork. We have a special quilt to celebrate.

We are proud to present “Oh, My Stars”. Enjoy this year’s quilt as we provide you new sections to complete each month. Thank you for your support, inspiration, sharing your ideas, colors and quilts.

The finished size of this quilt will be about 66" x 78". Yardage figured using 44" wide fabric. Borders will have 2 yardage amounts, one for pieced borders and the other for un-pieced borders. Below is a list of yardage needed to complete your quilt top (main quilt and borders). As always yardage is figured more than actually needed by approximately 10%.
