Life can be stressful, and if you're going, going, going all the time, the last thing you need is to lose your mind over planning and sewing a quilt. Stitching should be a relaxing, pleasurable activity – and that's exactly what our Block of the Month programs are designed for.
When you subscribe to receive a Block of the Month (BOM) quilt kit, you'll receive the instructions, pattern and fabric for a new quilt block once a month. This process will repeat monthly until you've completed all the blocks for your quilt top.
The next step is finishing, and we support you there, too. You'll receive the binding to finish the job – just follow the instructions we provide. To ensure you get Block of the Month quilts that match your expertise, we've indicated the difficulty level in the details. Whether you're a beginning quilter or a seasoned stitcher, you can subscribe to our quilt Block of the Month with confidence.
Sewing a quilt using Blocks of the Month quilt patterns is a fun and manageable way to create a masterpiece. You work at your own pace, using pre-selected materials that take the guesswork out of planning. Best of all, you can find online support at Fat Quarter Shop and with other stitchers who are also members of our quilt clubs and Block of the Month programs. And, there's even a Designer Mystery Block of the Month Facebook group you can join to connect with others who share your interest. You're not alone in your Block of the Month quest – you have the resources of our Fat Quarter Shop community at your fingertips!
