Year of Spools 2023 BOM - April Sew Hoppy Block

Updated: Apr 26, 2023

The April Year of Spools block is now available. I have been waiting eagerly to show off this block ever since I designed it. It's so darn cute. I'm so smitten by it. The Sew Hoppy Block was so much fun to design. I'm not sure that I have designed an animal quilt block yet, so this is a first. I think I'll have to design more. The Sew Hoppy pattern comes with instructions to make the girl bunny block and the boy bunny block. The only difference is the head/ear unit. Everything else is the same. Take your pick or make both of the blocks, like I did. This block can be used for so many different things. Will someone please turn this block into an Easter basket? If you do, please send me a picture. Disclaimer, this block does have a lot of small pieces, but I filmed a tutorial that takes you step by step through the pattern, so don't feel intimidated. The tutorial will be up in just a few days. My advice is to stay organized, go slow, and measure your units after each step to maintain accuracy. I can't wait to see your blocks!

Year of Spools BOM:

I am so excited to announce my new BOM Sew Spool Series called, Year of Spools. This BOM series will feature a monthly themed block incorporating a spool into each block. Each month I will release the PDF pattern instructions for the block and in December 2023 I will release some fun free settings for you to turn your blocks into a quilt or other fun quilty projects. Since I’m starting this now, I realize that I have missed the January block. I will release the January 2023 block when I release the December 2023 block and settings, so you will have a full set of 12 blocks. I’m really excited about this BOM and I cannot wait to see my Year of Spools quilt come together this year.

Here’s how it will work:

Each month (or a couple of weeks before the new month) I will release a 14” finished themed monthly spool block pattern that will be available as a low priced PDF on my website. In my monthly newsletters I will announce when each block will release and maybe even show a little sneak peek of the block. We will have to see. I will also announce each new block on my Instagram and Facebook page right before it releases. You can collect all of the blocks or just your favorites, is up to you. This is a fun low pressure BOM!

Happy Quilting
