January is the perfect time to begin a quilt. A block a month is also an easy way to keep you on track all year long. Below are a few free resourses for quilting a Block a Month in 2015.
Join the 2015 Snapshots Quilt-Along, as we sew twelve novelty blocks that capture and celebrate moments of happiness in our lives. Watch our introduction video with Kimberly, Bonnie and Camille to learn more about our exclusive sew-along.
|Every block pattern is FREE and available on our blog! We only ask that you donate to St. Jude for the use of each pattern. Each block will be accompanied by a YouTube video tutorial hosted by Kimberly, Bonnie and Camille, and will be released on the 15th of each month.
Together, your friends at Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match up to $10,000 of donations raised during our campaign for this amazing cause. On top of that, we will auction our Snapshots Quilt Along Quilt at the end of the program, and 100% of the auction proceeds will go to St. Jude.
Build your skills and a breathtaking quilt, one fun block at a time! Created in partnership with RJR Fabrics, the 2015 Craftsy Block of the Month class brings you a new video lesson on the first of every month, led by award-winning quilter Jinny Beyer. Explore appliqué, foundation piecing, partial seams and more to assemble 13 beautiful blocks. Jinny will walk you through her signature hand-piecing techniques, but if you prefer machine piecing you can still follow along! Finish your quilt in flawless style with sashing and cornerstones, and add professional polish with a lesson on border prints and crisp mitered edges. Enjoy an experience you won’t find anywhere else with Craftsy’s free Block of the Month class!
There approach is different in that it is a sharing of blocks each month to make a quilt each month. You must be a member to participate. View current and past blocks HERE.
