Welcome to the “My Hometown” Block of the Month!

We had originally planned on doing this project in 2020, but with all of the uncertainty of 2020 we decided to move this to 2021 and to focus instead on “smaller” projects.  I know many of you enjoyed our “Silver Linings” and “FaLaLa” Sew Along projects that we ran in the summer and fall of 2020, and we hope that you join us for this fun project in 2021.  After all of the craziness of 2020, I’m hoping this project can help us to “reconnect” with things that are important to us, like the connection that many of us have to our own hometowns.

This Block of the Month will run from February through August of 2021, and new blocks will be released on the first Monday of each month.  These blocks will be sent out via email so you must be signed up for our email list in order to participate.

As with my other projects, we want you to have options in how to complete the quilt so that you can learn new skills or use some of your favorite techniques to make your quilt.  Finished quilt is approximately 63″x63″.

  • Choose your colorway – either “Summer” or “Spring”.  Instructions for both colorways will be included.
  • Choose your favorite technique – hand embroidery, machine applique, or just piecing with every block.  Hand embroidery and applique patterns included for every block.

You’ll get the instructions for both colorways and for hand embroidery and machine applique when you sign up!

We can’t wait to see your blocks as we work through this project – please join our free “Sew Quilty Friends” Facebook group so that we can see your finished blocks and you can get inspired by all the project photos that others share!

**In order to receive the free patterns for this Block of the Month, you MUST sign up for our email list using the signup box above.  Even if you have previously signed up for our newsletter or a previous Sew Along, we need to you sign up for this project.**

Fabric requirements for this BOM will be released in December.

Fabric Kits are now available!

The kit to make My Hometown is available in two different colorways (use the drop down menu to select your favorite)

  • The Spring colorway:   a pastel palette of pinks, purple, light blue and spring green
  • The Summer colorway:   a warm and modern palette of coral, charcoal, gold, green and aqua

Label your “My Hometown” Quilt with our coordinating Quilt Labels!

Coordinating Quilt Labels that incorporate the My Hometown designs are also  available from our online shop.  Each label panel includes 10 different labels, so you can use them not only in your My Hometown quilt, but also in other projects.
