My New Block of the Month

Hey all! I’m finally back and have lots in store to show you coming up now that I have a little bit more free time on the horizon. :) Yay!

I started a new Block of the Month at the start of this year that I’m really excited about! It’s an Amy Bradley design called Animal Whimsy.

Isn’t it totally cute?! I love her stuff! It’s always so fun and cheerful. And we all know how much I love applique, so I couldn’t pass up a chance to do this pattern and share it with others in a Block of the Month program we’re running at my local shop, The Granary.

Once a month I’ll pick fabrics to make one of the animal blocks from the pattern. I got a little bit of a head start on picking some colorful backgrounds though. I couldn’t resist! It’s nice to have an idea of what it will look like as it grows. I love what I’ve picked so far for those backgrounds!

It’s going to be so bright and fun — great for any little one to enjoy. Those fabrics are just making me drool looking at them…

Moving forward with this blog, I’m hoping to post my finished block within the first week of every month for you all to see. I must have the block done by the 1st of every month to put up at the shop and have kits ready by then to sell and mail out. You’ll get to see my progress as the program goes on throughout the year. :)

So now without any further ado, here’s this month’s block — The Horse!

    1. Thanks, I thought so too. It’ll help me plan the future blocks a little bit faster down the line I think. At first, I began by only picking a handful (like maybe 4 or 5) and then I just couldn’t stop! I just had to have them all picked out before moving forward. Haha!
