2019 Fresh & Scrappy Block of the Month Club
This quilt is a cheerful celebration of all things scrappy. I designed this Block of the Month specifically to bust through fabric scraps and help you tame those scrap bins. (It's not just me, right?)
One of my favorite things about this quilt is the variety of blocks. They are going to spark your creativity and keep you engaged and excited. There are flying geese, fans, log cabins, stars, flowers, chains and more! Most of the piecing is standard, but there will be some machine appliqué and the opportunity to make a block with curved seams. (There will be an option to appliqué this block, if desired.) There are also a variety of block sizes. There are 8", 12" and 16" squares, not to mention 8" x 12" and 8" x16" rectangles. There's nothing boring about this quilt!
Here are the details:
-The finished size of the quilt is 56" x 72".
-On the first of each month, starting January 2019, you will receive a pdf quilt block pattern via email. It will contain cutting and piecing instructions for that month’s block, along with tips for using scraps. We will usually make two of the given block, but some months we will make more. I have kept those blocks fast and simple, so it won’t be overwhelming.
-This pattern is perfect for both confident beginners and longtime quilters who want to play with their scraps!
-I am selling on Etsy and the patterns will be sent to the address associated with your Etsy account. If you would like me to email the patterns to a different address, please let me know in the Notes to Seller box when you check out.
-Today you will be able to download and print the Fabric Requirements and a Coloring Page. Use the coloring page to try out different color combinations or to color in the blocks as we make them.
