Welcome! This is Bound To Be Quilting's Free Block of the Month Page. Near the first of every month we will post a free block for you to sew along with us. Watch for our posting on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Our newsletter (please sign up!) will also keep you up-to-date on new and interesting events.
The "Eleventh block (September) is now available on this page for free download until the end of the month. You're almost finished - just one more block to go and then finishing! If you missed any of the previous blocks (November - August) you can download them for $2 each on our patterns page.
The program will be 12 months long, with the 13th month being a suggested sashing/finishing option. However, of course, you may finish your quilt in any way that you like. Since this program started in November 2016, your finished quilt has the potential to be a great Christmas gift for 2017!
The fabric theme for our blocks is Americana (think red, blue, beige and gold). However, you are free to choose any fabrics you like and sew along with us. The fabrics for our quilt will be taken out of our stash and therefore will have a scrappy look. All our blocks for this quilt will have a star theme. You'll have to stay tuned to see what final layout we come up with!
Since we anticipate the blocks to be scrappy, you will find that each block will not take much fabric. Hints or tips on methods of construction will be included with each block pattern. The blocks are geared towards beginners and intermediate quilters. If you do not understand or have a question regarding the instructions on any month please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly try to help you.
