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!
