Our new Block of the Month uses some of our favorite designs from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks reduced to 6″
Happy new year, friends!
The beginning of the year is a time to set resolutions, and quilting goals are no exception. Perhaps there’s a certain type of quilt you want to make, a new technique you want to master or a class you want to take. Maybe you just want to clean out your sewing room and get it organized, or at least finish up some of those UFOs sitting in the corner.
One thing you can definitely look forward to in 2016 is our new 100 Blocks Sampler Block of the Month, featuring quilt blocks from our popular 100 Blocks issues. To create this 12-month BOM that starts in March, we reduced blocks from our 100 Blocks magazines to 6″, placed them in a creative sampler setting and added a pretty piano key border.
Kits are available to purchase in our online shop in three colorways: red and white, traditional and reproduction. Four new quilt blocks will be presented in each month’s kit with a bonus block in month 12, along with fabric for the sashing and binding.
The complete quilt pattern alone will also be available to purchase soon, plus we’ll be hosting a sew-along right here on Quilty Pleasures! We plan to blog step-by-step block instructions each Wednesday starting in March, and we’ve invited the designers whose blocks we’re featuring to post on their own blogs as well. We’re also planning to include some additional projects in some of our blogs using leftover fabric from the kits.
We hope you’ll join us for all the fun! Pre-order your 100 Blocks Sampler Block of the Month kits in our online store, and stay tuned to our blog for more information.
