2018 BOM

Below are the links to the blocks of the month patterns:


2018 January BOM




The following link will give you the bird block foundation pieced pattern.

When you print the March block of the month from
the free page your printer needs to be set at 115% to get the block to be 5.5 by 6.5 inches
to make a finished block of 5 inches by 6 inches.  We want all the same sized block.

Please make the background white on white NOT the blue as in the directions.



Suzanne will bring templates to the March meeting for this block. Please consider making an extra block (total of 2 blocks) for this month. The extra blocks will be put together into a quilt for Providence House. Thanks!

April 2018 Block of the Month update


The finished block is 12 1/2″ but there are 4 individual blocks
measuring 6 1/2″ each. Put them together as in the picture on the website and the entire thing should measure 12 1/2″ square.
I’d like white on white background and each bow tie the same color
so each 12″ block will have 4 different color bow ties just like the instructions online
Any questions please contact Shawn Barone

This is a free pattern from Kate Spain. There are 9 different blocks. You can download the whole pattern or when you print, select just the page of the block YOU want to make.
