Creating Block of the Month Quilts

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.
