Now Available: Printable How-To Block of the Month

What started out as an educational opportunity for my local quilt guild, has turned into a multi year project! Each month I post on my blog how to put together a different quilt block.

So basically it is like a Block of the Month. But this is not a formal Block of the Month like you are familiar with. There is no end goal, no giant quilt to put together, unless you really want to. It is just a fun excuse to put together some fun blocks. Do whatever you want with them!

These blocks are great for beginning to intermediate quilters who understand basic piecing. There is no applique in this pattern.

All of these blocks are available on my blog, but I have also grouped these blocks together into 5-6 blocks each into an easy PDF printable that is available here, as a digital download in my shop.

This is what is included in Group 1.

  • Hi Anne! Thanks for your comment. Each block has 1-2 pages of instructions and a few pictures. The instructions are basically just like the blog posts that go with each block, but there are more pictures on the blog post.
    (Here is a link to the latest blog post – )

    Each block’s instructions are separate from each other so you don’t have to print the whole thing to get instructions for only one block. If you would like a sample, please email me at and I would be happy to send you a sample.
    Thanks for asking!

  • Could we see a small sample of what the instructions look like? I don’t mind printing my own, however a large group I wanted to be a part of only had like 2 small pictures of 1 block (hst) or such per page. There was 22 pages to the pattern. I don’t pay for ink on my system, but I pay for every printed page. I dropped them like a hot potato. That is senseless. I just don’t want to make that mistake again, so I am asking up front. Thank you for your understanding & patience. -A
