Block of the Month projects are fun to do and are a great way to learn new blocks and techniques. Fundamentals Block of the Month is a 12 month program. With 50 blocks to make you will have plenty of opportunity to learn. Although the number of different blocks seems daunting, that’s the beauty of a block of the month program. You’ll make a few blocks every month…. you’ll look forward to receiving your new patterns and fabrics every month (feels a little like Christmas spread out all year!) and will want to dig in right away. Before you get to feeling overwhelmed by the number of blocks and the task at hand, you’ll be finished with that month’s blocks. At the end of the year you will have a quilt that will be worthy of becoming a family treasure… handed down through the generations.
One of two options is Fundamentals Block of the Month – Reproduction Fabrics is made with reproduction fabrics by Jo Morton and other designers. The first month’s package is larger than the other months as it will include key fabrics that are used throughout the quilt, ensuring the same dye lot. The next 10 months will continue with all the blocks. The last month will again be larger, containing the final blocks, sashings, borders and binding. The only items not included will be the backing and the batting.
The second option is Fundamentals Block of the Month – Americana which is made with fabrics that represent the country spirit of America. The first 11 months will be blocks and the last month will be larger, containing the final blocks, borders and binding.
Both of these Block of the Month programs ship around the 5th of the month. Choose you favorite fabrics and get started!
