The 2017 Free Block of the Month is coming!

It’s almost here! Next week, we will begin sign ups for the 2017 Free Block of the Month! Woo hoo!!

The 2017 Block of the Month will be called…. I Love Home.

Would you like to see the quilt? Yes?? Well, OK then! Here it is:

The size of this quilt is about 54 x 68″.  Once again, the patterns will have options for piecing only, applique, or embroidery. We will start the Sew Along in August. And yes, we will have fabric kits available for this pattern! We will be announcing those soon!

I asked on Facebook for suggestions for themes. I got a lot of good ideas… several people mentioned houses. I LOVE houses- to me they signify family, coziness, safety and happiness. Of course, the “home” part of a house comes from the people that we share them with- so every house in the quilt has a heart or two, to represent the people and the love inside.

 

We will be having FABULOUS prizes this year! Here are our sponsors- please visit their websites and see all the quilt-y and sewing goodness that they have to offer!

    I am soiled that you are planning another BOM. I have done each of your past BOM’s, but never did the embroidery.. Since the Art of Home club, I am addicted to adding embroidery to my quilts…. Marion

    Could this one be a wall hanging?

    • Posted June 9, 2017 at 7:28 am | Permalink

      Hi Daryl Jean! It’s more of a lap size, probably too big for a wall hanging (54 1/2 x 68″). However, the blocks are large (18″), so you could just make a block or 2 into a wall hanging.
      Hope this helps!

    I made this very first quilting I did. Love it in the picture and love it made. I was so glad when you won on Craftsy for it. If there were a place to post a picture of it I would it was my first quilted item but proud of it. I did mine in more or less same coloring but I love Sunflowers and did the center in Sunflowers and used matching fabrics to go with that fabric.. Thanks so much for sharing your patterns I LOVE THEM!!!! I have been getting your newsletter since..
