December BOM a Little Early

I’m going to be away from my computer for a few days, and away from sewing for at least a week, so I wanted to get the final block of the month posted for you.

Of course, the chances of you having a Jacob and Samantha in your home are probably not all that high, but the names can be changed to suit your desires. 

This quilt is a combination of different elements; needle-turn appliqué, fusible appliqué, embroidery, and a fun brick fabric.  You don’t have to find the same exact fabric… there are many available to choose from.  You might even put your stockings on a wood paneling! 
Here are a few links to follow to a couple of fabrics I found:

There are many more… just do a search and you’ll find what you’re looking for!
Besides the brick fabric, everything I used here came from my stash. 
If you’re interested in making the December Block of the Month,


I hope you’ve enjoyed the Calendar Block of the Month.  I know I have!  Please share anything that you’ve created from any of the patterns.  We’d all love to see!

November Block of the Month

digg_url = “http://blog.caronmosey.com/2010/10/november-block-of-month.html”;digg_title = “November Block of the Month”;digg_bgcolor = “#FFFFFF”;digg_skin = “normal”;http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.jsdigg_url = undefined;digg_title = undefined;digg_bgcolor = undefined;digg_skin = undefined;

Every parent wants their child to eat a healthy diet. My Mother-in-Law is an excellent baker, and every Thanksgiving, she bakes delicious pumpkin pies.  In our family, we put heaps of whipped cream on top (via Coolwhip that we call “dilly whip”).  My sons always wanted to start the meal with the pumpkin pie, but were forced to wait.  They would pick at their food, saving room, of course, for the pie.

When dessert time came, Grandma would give them huge pieces with lots of “dilly whip.”  Yes, they could have seconds, because of course, following the guidelines for a balanced meal, pumpkin pie is the perfect food.

Pumpkin pie has:

  • Vegetable food group (squash!)
  • Dairy food group (cream)
  • Protein food group (eggs)
  • Grain food group (crust)

Balanced Food Group

Calendar BOM: December!

Are you participating in the Calendar Block of the Month?  If so, here’s a sneak peek at December:



Yes, I know… right now it’s pretty boring.   But you need to be on the lookout for a brick or stone fabric.  A fat quarter will do you just fine. 
More to come!  I can’t believe it’s been a whole year already!

Block of the Month Calendar: October

October

When I think of October, I think pumpkins.   Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins, carving pumpkins… pumpkin anything, actually!  I live in Michigan, so we are blessed with beautiful color in the fall.  It’s my favorite time of year!

For our October block, I chose “The Pumpkin Family.”  This is a flexible block; my pumpkin family doesn’t need to look like your pumpkin family!  Since this goes on Jacob and Samantha’s calendar that hangs on their kitchen/dining room wall, I wanted something cheerful that represented them.  So in the back row of this block we have Daddy, Mommy, Samantha, and in the front we have Jacob.  Sean is rarely without his Detroit Tigers hat.  Kim has on lipstick, Samantha has cute little pumkin’ curls, and Jacob is looking at Mommy for advice.  Who is in your family?  Jazz up your block to make it uniquely yours.

July Block of the Month

July

Who doesn’t like to go to the beach in July?  And watch a sunset?

Going to the beach in the summer is one of my favorite things to do.  Whether it is a lake, ocean or even a river, water has always stolen my heart in summer. 

This is a simple block to make.  The sun is paper pieced, the letters are fused… though you could needle turn applique’ them if you choose.  JulySun

I chose to do simple quilting, very close together, in horizontal squiggly lines.   I chose an orange for the quilting on the top portion of the block, and blue for the bottom.  I love how it turned out!  J.U.L.Y

 

Hint:  If you trace the lines on the paper piecing sheet with pencil, you can leave the paper right in when you quilt.  It gives it a crisp finish, and nobody will know they are there.  This is likely not to be washed, and even if it does, it won’t hurt anything.  I never do that with a quilt, but often do on small wallhangings and get good results.

The pattern is located here.

June Block of the Month Calendar

The June flower of the month – ROSES!  What could be easier than these simple little roses tucked into the four letters of    J U N E ?   DSC03491

June is a traditional month for weddings, brides, and laying around in the sunshine.  This is an open, airy block with several options that are left for your choosing.  You probably have enough fabric scraps in your stash to spare you a trip to your LQS. 

Simple to stitch while sitting in the boat floating around the lake.  Enjoy!
