This year's Block of the Month is all about "My Favorite Things". Whiskers on Kittens (and puppies), White porcelain pitchers full of spring tulips, Vintage sewing machines, fat little blue birds and of course, star blocks! LOTS of Star blocks!
The quilt size is 64" x 80". There are 12 featured applique blocks, with 6 alternate pieced blocks (2 of each for symmetry) just in case you don't enjoy doing applique! Another dozen cute "background" blocks in-between the featured blocks and a large center medallion. We'll have a traditional and bright version of the quilt (see pics below). It's all shaping up to be a lot of fun! Kits will also be available in very similar colors to the pics below (Fig Tree or Brights). We'll cover details of the kits during the first class if you're interested or use whatever fabrics you desire.
The cost is $30.00 for the entire year of patterns and instruction. Classes will be in person at our shop in Vancouver, Washington, or you can participate on-line via Facebook Live*. We will film each month just like last year and you can ask questions LIVE during the class or watch the video whenever its convenient for you - more on the online option below. You can also attend an in-person class one month and watch online the next, whatever works for you! Everyone will be able to post pics, ask questions and review each month's class online as well.
Each month January - November, patterns and instruction will be provided. December is our reveal/show and tell month.
Cost: $30.00 (for the whole year)
Size: 64" x 80"
We'll also be giving away door prizes each class and two free gift certificates for $100 to be used for long arm quilting of your project!
We will be having a "late enrollment" class Jan 22nd - so you won't miss out!

We're still working out the exact times of the in-person classes. There will be several in-person sessions throughout the day, and possibly additional class times the Friday before and/or the Sunday afterwards, depending on demand. The online class will always be Saturday morning at 9:00 am. When enrolling via the web it will default to 9am - but you can choose anytime each month for in person classes.
Online BOM Details:
*Lets talk about Facebook Live. Last year was our first year to offer a digital format for classes. I chose Facebook over zoom for the community aspect in hopes that our BOM participants would share and support each other. And I'm happy to say, that is exactly what happened! Instead of Zoom, which would give a live class and no support, Facebook live allowed for very convenient downloading of all the files/patterns needed for class, as well as sharing, supporting and creativity! We had several groups of friends from all over the country participate last year, as a fun way for them to do something together. I'm very proud of the 2021 Facebook group for our Block of the Month "Joyful" and I'm looking forward to another fun year of classes with people from all over our country!
