Block Of The Month
64 vintage blocks with names relating to friendship.
Four 8” blocks similar to the one shown are given each month with appliqué details.
These combine with sashing to make one larger block. Details are given to make it a QUILT-AS-YOU- GO, including the sashing, so that every month you can make one completed large block, but you could just stitch individual blocks as normal, make them into a complete quilt top and quilt it as a whole. The appliqué and buttons are optional. A silhouette sheet is given to enable you to change the appliqué designs as you wish.
I designed this as the ultimate Shoebox Scrappy fun quilt, using various patchwork techniques and adding optional appliqué and decorations and additional hand-stitching. I have only recently discovered how satisfying ‘quilt as you go’ on an ordinary sewing machine can be.
