I'm so excited to be sharing something new. After I released my Sew Loving block last month I had several wonderful quilters reach out to me asking if I could do some sort of Block of the Month incorporating spools. At that moment, I was so overwhelmed with the idea; I just had to ponder on it. After a couple of weeks thinking it over and designing the monthly spool blocks, I decided to move forward with the idea. Designing all the blocks was really fun and really helped me decide if I could move forward with the BOM. I didn’t know if I could design a spool themed block for each month, but it turns out, I can! I can’t wait for you to see them all. This is going to be SEW much fun! I hope you join along. Keep reading for more details about the BOM and how you can purchase the Sew Loving and Sew Lucky 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!
