So let’s kick off the new year with the new paper pieced Block of the Month! Sew Kitschy! We have 9 retro kitchen themed blocks to make this year! We’ll start with the easier blocks and work up to the harder ones (I’m looking at you Betty!). You can check out all the details of the BOM here.
Now one thing I’m doing a little differently for the BoM this year – giving you a choice!
You can wait to get the pattern free each month, or you can purchase the entire pattern bundle upfront.
Onto the BoM! January’s block is the easiest of the bunch! There are only three sections to put together! Yay for an easy start, right?! We have the oven mitt and pot holder block up first.
I have very creatively titled it “Oven mitts Paper Pieced Pattern” in my Craftsy shop, but in my head I call it “Some Like It Hot”. Just a reminder on the pattern – it’ll only be free for the month of January then it’s paying my bills and we’ll move onto the February block. So head over and grab the pattern! Time to sew!
And a slight confession – I’m not actually sewing along with this one myself. Forgive me, but I’m just not a retro gal! But I did have a blast designing the patterns and am excited about seeing your version! My favourite part of the BoM is seeing what fabrics people choose and how you make these blocks your own! So please make sure when you finish your block that you share it in the Quiet Play Flickr group, or link it up here in the linky party. The linky will be open for the whole month so we can all see what everyone else has made (and pop by and leave comments of course!).
Can’t wait to see your blocks! Happy sewing, quilty types!
