2021 Block of the Month

 Beach Dreams

2021 Block of the Month is now open for Sign Ups

Beach Dreams reminds me of so many of my favorite things about going to the beach.  Balm breezes, sandcastles on the shore, picking up sea shells, and watching the beautiful sea birds come and go.  It is a great way to warm up on cold day and will bring sunny days in the form of a comfy throw or wall quilt you can snuggle with all year long.

This Super Fun quilt is 68 x 68 and is easy enough for a beginner and challenging enough for a seasoned quilter.

It includes fusible web machine applique, traditional piecing and paper piecing.  The patterns include detailed instructions in color for each block, full size templates, layout guides, paper piecing foundation with lots of illustrations to help you along.  PLUS, I will be doing a video each month to SHOW you how to do each step.

Each pattern includes a unique block background and one or more appliques to fuse onto the background.

This Fabulous Rope Border is a unique pattern I developed several years ago and have been waiting for just the right quilt to use it.  I think I finally found the prefect quilt to go with it.

This Block of the Month includes 12 individual patterns, 1 for each month of 2021.  The blocks will be sent on the 15th of each month starting in January 2021 and ending in December.  Sign up anytime and you will be able to get all 12 blocks on your schedule!

Fabric Kits are available again from ConnectTheBlocks.com.  They are using beautiful 100% cotton batiks from Hoffman 1895 Watercolor collection.  The first kits will ship January 15 and include the pattern, all fabric to make the quilt top, and shipping in the US.

Be sure to join the Morning Glory Designs Block of the Month Facebook Group to get lots of how-to's, encouragement, and share pictures of your progress.  It is a great place to keep up, make friends, and see some really beachy eye candy.

I hope you will join us this year make 2021 a Joyous and Fun year with this cheerful and easy Beach Dream Block of the Month.
