We are so happy today to be announcing our 2016 Quilt Block of the Month Quilt-Along!
It is going to be so much fun!!!!
Here is how it works:
*The first Monday of each month we are going to share a tutorial that will walk you through how to make a 16.25″ quilt block.
*Then at the end of the year you will be able to put the sampler together in the pattern of your choice to create a quilt (complete with sashing and a boarder!)
*The finished quilt only needs 9 quilt blocks which means if you miss a few months…no problem! (And if you do sew all 12 blocks we will show you how to either add those blocks to your quilt OR turn those remaining blocks into darling pillow covers for your couch or bed!
…because we got carried away with how fun this could be…Elizabeth and I went shopping together and chose all the fabric to make the quilt blocks coordinate (so they would look terrific together in the quilt and matching pillows)….and while we were there we bought extra fabric (lots of it!) so that we could put together quilt kits FOR YOU! That way if you wanted to sew along with us and make the exact same quilt and pillows you could! It would be easy!!!
So tomorrow we get to show you the entire quilt top.
On Wednesday we get to show you the extra 3 blocks turned into pillows (that you could also add to the quilt…or turn into a table runner…or whatever….)
And then on Thursday we will show you the quilt kits with everything that is included with them, how much they cost, etc. etc.
It’s going to be a fun week! We can’t wait to get Quilt Block of the Month Quilt-Along started!!!
Awesome, I’ve been waiting for this. Can’t wait to play along and learn something new.
Fun! I want to play along!
Lord have mercy! I need another project like I need a hole in the head! I shall pray your quilt blocks don’t talk to me, begging to be made!
Megan Lorson says
Awesome, wonderful, amazing idea! Thank you for such a fun project!
I’ve been waiting for this too! Can’t wait to get started.
I am excited! I really don’t need another project, but how can I resist? Lol
I’m new to quilting and monthly quilt blocks. Does it cost to join?
All of the tutorials are free on the website. The only cost is if you’d like to purchase the fabrics from us…otherwise we give you all the fabric requirements to buy your own or use your own fabric stash!
It’s going to be so fun!!!
YAYYY!!! So happy you are joining us!
Cool! I hope I can tag along every time! It is always nice to join sew along – it gives me the impression I am with a “sewing group”! So exciting and looking forward to see these details!

May I jump in? I know it;s late, but I have been looking for just this type of group…
YESSS please do!

Phyllis Boyd says
Just now saw this. I know 2016 is long gone but I love the pattern. Can I still get it? I will be co-president of my local quilt guilt next year and am looking for a BOM for us to work on. P Boyd phylnboyd@ gmail.com.
