Have you signed up for the FREE Happy Little Things Block of the Month yet?? Just click here.

This year, we are including instructions for TWO different colorways- we are going to “max out” your creativity on this one! There is the modern “Desert” color way, with green, navy, peach & coral, and the traditional “Cottage” color way, with pink, red, pale yellow, light blue and black.

You have several options for making these blocks. In months 1 through 4, we will be making the blocks. There are options for piecing only, machine/hand applique, or embroidering the blocks. You can:

–Machine or hand applique the motif in the center of the block (patterns provided.)

–Hand embroider the motif in the center of the block (patterns provided.)

–Use the white fabric in the center as shown, leave out the applique and embroidery altogether, and use that negative space to showcase some fabulous quilting.

–Use the floral fabric (the same as the border) or a novelty fabric as your block center, and leave out the applique and embroidery.

–Optional purchase preprinted panels for the center of your blocks– Just sew preprinted panels for the centers of your blocks!

Finished quilt size approximately 43 1/2” x 53 1/2”.

These are fabric requirements for appliquéd version of the quilt. If you do the version with just piecing or embroidery, you will have a little fabric leftover.

I want to emphasize that purchase of products is NOT required for participation in the BOM. You can receive the patterns for free simply by signing up . However, we have a limited number of fabric kits left in stock.  If you see something you want, order it NOW- because I when they are gone, they are gone- we cannot reorder the fabrics, as they are no longer available.
