Starburst Blossoms Block of the Month
We are so excited to partner with Morning Glory Designs for the fourth year in a row to offer you fabric kits for the 2018 Starburst Blossom Block of the Month. Like bright blossoms that have landed on new-fallen snow, this 64" x 78" quilt sparkles with color and light!
As we’ve done in the past, Morning Glory Designs will release one FREE block pattern and bonus block pattern each month, beginning in January 2018, and ending in January 2019 with the free border pattern. We provide the fabric kits each month.
This year’s pattern combines basic piecing with fusible applique in the center of star blocks, for a fresh, inviting quilt that will be enjoyed by all. Our kits will have one White-on-White fabric as the background for the entire quilt, and all the vibrant colors will be executed in our gorgeous premium tonal batiks.
As always, there is no registration fee, and shipping is included in the price of the kits, so the price you see is exactly what you pay each month. This is a 13-month program, with one block kit sent to you each month, and the complete border/binding kit sent in the 13th month.
IMPORTANT: You MUST sign up for the Morning Glory Designs newsletter to get the free patterns each month! Sign up here: https://www.morningglorydesigns.com/ - scroll down a bit until you see the blue box that asks for your email address and name. Fill in that information and you’re good to go! DON’T DELAY – if you want the free January block pattern you must sign up in JANUARY; otherwise there will be a nominal charge for January’s pattern.

Sweet Summertime Block of the Month
Dreaming of the lazy, hazy days of summer when Mother Nature insists is still winter? We have something that will put you in a Sweet Summertime frame of mind!
Our version of Sweet Summertime, designed by Swirly Girls Design, features the new Kohuna line of fabric from 3 Wishes fabric company. There’s a little bit of hand embroidery and the soft, pleasing colors of coral, aqua and gray featured in a darling teepee print, leaves, arrows, pyramids and other graphics that put us in mind of those fun days at summer scout camp, learning new skills, learning a bit of Native American history along with local lore, building teepees (and sleeping in them!), gathering leaves, looking for arrowheads ….
This large lap (60” x 72”) can easily be completed in six months. For five months you’ll receive the pattern and fabrics for one embroidery block and three matching coordinating blocks (4 blocks total), along with pre-printed Fabri-Solvy® with that month’s embroidery design - no tracing, no permanent marks on your fabric to worry about … simply stick the printed design onto your background fabric and start stitching! We’ll also include a spool of coral, gray and deep aqua your first month to complete the stitching. The six month kit will be the fabric for borders and binding, along with finishing instructions.
Your cost of $30/month includes all the above plus shipping – no extra charges and no registration fee! We have a limited number of kits for this program, so go HERE to sign up today.
Deco Garden Block of the Month
Evocative of the Art Nouveau period with the look and feel of Tiffany stained glass, Deco Garden is a stunning design you will be thrilled to display.
We're delighted to be partnered with Morning Glory Designs on this project! This is a 13-month program that will include all the fabrics you need for the blocks, sashing, borders and binding shown here for this 56"x62" quilt, along with each month's pattern. The fabrics are all Anthology batiks with solid black as the background fabric. As always with our BOMs there are NO registration fees and NO additional shipping charges. The cost you see here is what you will be billed each month.

Bad Girls of the Bible Stained Glass Window Block of the Month
This second block of the month quilt in our three-part series highlights “Bad Girls of the Bible”, and is a follow-up to “Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible.” This program features familiar and not so familiar women in the Bible: Eve, Potiphar’s wife, Lot’s wife, Sapphira, Delilah, Rahab and more. Each block represents the story in which the women appear, and it’s up to you to read the stories if you choose. The pattern itself includes a brief description of the story represented by each block, and the last page of the pattern booklet provides guidelines on setting up a book study in your home or church if you have an interest in doing so.
Our generous-sized lap quilt (54” x 72”) is made of premium batiks with solid black Pimatex on a limestone-brick background and encompasses both traditionally piecing and easy paper-piecing techniques. (If you’re new to paper-piecing this is a great project with which to start – super easy foundations let you see how easy and rewarding this technique can be!) We also include our exclusive tips and tricks for success with each block along with directions for framing each window and enlarging the quilt to the size shown (54" x 72"). Choose from the 5-month program for $28/month (USA), the 11-month program for $15/month (USA), or the full kit (available HERE). As with all our BOMs, shipping is included in the monthly price, and there is no registration fee. First kits will begin shipping in early October.
Life on the Reef Block of the Month
From Barbara Bieraugel Designs, we’re thrilled to offer this follow up to Colorful Tropics: “LIFE ON THE REEF”. Life on the Reef is a 10-month program that results in a large (48” x 52”) wall hanging or small lap quilt. The easy patchwork background gives beautiful movement to this design. Swimming through the patchwork “reef” you’ll notice a sea turtle, Achilles Tang, Yellow Tang, Humuhumunukunukuapua’a (aka Humuhumu or the reef, rectangular, or wedge-tail triggerfish), Moorish Idol and a sea horse or a bottom of sea grass, kelp, elk horn coral and fan coral. The applique can be done with fusible or by hand – it’s your choice. Barbara’s excellent directions and tips make this an easy project to complete (even for those of us who shun the dreaded “A” word).
As with all our BOMs, there is no registration fee and shipping is included in the monthly cost – no hidden charges and no surprises! You pay exactly what you see here: this 10-month program is $21 per month for our USA customers, $27 per month for our Canadian friends (to cover the additional shipping). First kits will begin shipping in mid-October and quantities are limited!

Appalachian Memories Block of the Month
We call this "Grandpa's Barn Quilt" because each one of these beautiful barn blocks were lovingly hand stitched by Grandpa! Designed by Beth Dix of Primrose Lane in North Carolina, "Appalachian Memories" is one of a series called "Mama's Quilts" dedicated to Beth's mother Dolores.
We created our Block of the Month program to be as simple as possible so that beginners and experienced stitchers alike can enjoy making this beautiful 74" x 92" quilt. All the fabrics for the top & binding are premium quilt shop batiks and the thread is Sulky's 12-wt in a beautiful chocolate brown. Additionally, we provide you with pre-printed embroidery designs on Fabri-Solvy so there is no tracing required on any of these blocks!
We offer this program in a 13-month program for $22/month, or if you're an over-achiever we have a 6-month program for $40/month. As with all of our BOM programs there is no registration fee and shipping is included in your monthly cost. You get no added charges and no surprises!

What do you think of when you hear “park bench”? What do you see in your mind’s eye? We’ve taken Jaybird Quilts’ latest block of the month pattern and turned it into three different versions:
Sparkling Gems Noir
From Annie Unrein of "By Annie", this bright and happy new block of the month quilt features twelve 15" blocks made from batiks on a fun black background with white accents. This large quilt takes approximately 20 yards of fabric and finishes at 96" x 114" - easily large enough for a queen size bed and even some king-size beds (depending on how deep your mattress is).

Annie's exceptional directions include cutting "charts" to help you make the most of each fabric in your kits. Sparkling Gems is great for beginners with lots of cutting/pressing/sewing tips.

Toes in the Sand Block of the Month
Don’t we all dream of putting our toes in the sand at the beach sometimes? It doesn’t matter where we live, the song of the surf calls to the beach bum in all of us at some point. With “Toes in the Sand” you can visit a different beach every month. Make blocks inspired by the big boulders of Big Sur or the tiny pebbles of Pebble Beach. Join us on a 14-month beach-hopping trip up the California coast as we visit Jaybird Quilt’s favorite beaches, making two blocks at each visit (each month). Go here for details and sign-up to make this twin-size quilt. (As with all our kits, postage is included in the monthly charge of $18.00 and there is no registration fee.)

And don’t we tell our children or grandchildren the very same things? Commemorate those sayings with this all-inclusive adorable wall quilt (40” x 40”) done in red and white over a 10-month period.
