Sometimes the hardest part about getting making a quilt is finding just the right fabrics and it is even more challenging when the blocks remain a mystery. I have put together some tips for you that you can download by clicking the link below.. I hope you find them helpful.
Choosing Fabric for Your Quilt pdf.
I also want to give you some idea of how the snowmen might look in our upcoming BOM. Some will be appliqued while others will just be embroidered details added to a white background. This is the top from another quilt challenge I did last year but might help in guiding you as you make your fabric selections.
Have fun shopping!
I am very happy to introduce you to my new Block of the Month program.
While I am going to share the setting for this quilt, the blocks themselves will not be revealed until they are released-one each month for 13 months. Although I am letting you see the final block, which will be the center block of the quilt so you can get an idea of what is in store.
The blocks will be free during the month that they are released, after that they will need to be purchased in my store. Be sure to sign up for updates so you never miss a block! There is a sign up option on the right specifically for We Can Build A Snowman Free BOM. Each month you will receive a link to directions for the latest block.
I have put together a list of materials needed for this quilt which can be downloaded here.
Introduction and Materials List
We will be working on some basic piecing skills, learning machine applique, and some basic embroidery stitches. Some of the blocks will have applique, some will only add hand embroidered details. Each block has been adapted from block patterns
that also look great on their own.
I have set up this BOM so that your wonderful snowman quilt will be ready for you to enjoy or give as a gift by winter of next year. Be sure and join me on Facebook to share your work with me and be a part of a wonderful group of supportive and encouraging quilters.
So spend the next three weeks gathering what you need and we will meet back here for
Block #1 on June 4th.
Please note: This BOM started June 2018 and will run through June 2019. Blocks are released the first Monday of each month.
