Old School Block of the Month
My mother-in-law taught me how to quilt, but block of the month programs honed my skills. Online block of the months in the early to mid-2000 were instrumental in teaching me different sewing techniques so I could determine my own preferences. I've found it harder and harder to find block of the month's as I remember them - where each month you visited a different quilter to see what they picked and how they put it together. So in 2021, I'm bringing back the Old School Block of the Month.
On the 12th of each month, a new quilter will share a block with us. They'll be bringing things back to basics teaching a variety of techniques from traditional piecing, applique, paper piecing, and perhaps more! This is a great program for beginners, but also fun for folks who know what they're doing. It's an opportunity to see someone else's technique, try something new, and perhaps decide what works best for you.
12" Mystery Blocks
Each quilter will share a tutorial making a 12" finished block. The tutorial will be free for the month it's posted - there may be a fee to purchase the tutorial later.
At the same time, this will be a mystery block of the month! Until the very end, I will not show you what the finished quilt will look like.
