2018 BOM

I am celebrating 10 years of providing free block of the month patterns on my blog!  

I will be celebrating with BIG blocks, BIG giveaways, and some great new tutorials.  Yup, it's a BIG year.


The free block of the month for 2018 will begin on January 15, 2018.
It is a pieced and appliqued set of 12 blocks.


"Name the Quilt" Contest and Giveaway.


Leave a comment (below) with your suggestion for a name for my new 2018 Block of the Month Quilt.  The person who supplies the winning name will receive a pattern pack and a batik charm pack.

Thanks to all my readers and subscribers for making the 2017 Block of the month such a great success.

Here is a sneak peek at the new BOM.



One of the 16" blocks from the 2018 BOM


Don't be surprised if I change the border.  Still working on ideas for that.

  1. This looks like it will be beautiful as all your designs. I think of the sun when looking at it at first and then the flowers. Perhaps it could be named Sunshining blooms or Sunshine blooms. I haven't had a chance to do the 2017BOM but will when I get a few finished I have started. I loved your Pony Express pattern and made my husband a throw for Christmas with the fabrics. Love what you do and perhaps can get to Ottawa as not too far from Lawrence. Do you have a shop? Thanks for all your free blocks. Betty Barnes

  3. Ciao Reeze e grazie ancora per tutto quello che ci doni e la meraviglia dei disegni. La mia idea per questo nuovo progetto mi fa pensare chiaramente ad un giardino e al cielo perciò lo chiamerei "giardino stellare". Ciao e buon lavoro Silvana

    1. Yikes! I was trying to edit and accidentally deleted my post. My suggestions are Formal Garden or Rainbow Garden. Sorry about my goof.

  9. I so appreciate that your generously share these BOMs with us! I was thinking something like "Spring Around the Corner." I'm not great at naming things but sure appreciate your creativity!

  10. "GORGEOUS" !!! That's what it is and what you should call it. Looking forward to making this quilt. Thank you.

  11. The starry corners remind me somewhat of bear paw blocks, so I would call the quilt "There's a Bear in the Garden!" . . .
    Whatever you choose to call it, it's an absolutely wonderful design that I'm looking forward to stitching! Thank you!

  18. "From the garden to me bed" yo creo que del jardin a mi cama seria un nombre muy acertado para este Bom 2018

  19. I'm thinking about "blooms" and "shades" and "hues" and all sorts of words, and my best thought is "Floral Fields." Gorgeous quilt design!
