It is time for BOM Block 7! The year has gone so fast, we are over halfway done now.

King's Crown quilt block for BOM 7

July BOM - Block 7

For the July BOM, we chose the King's Crown block. We did a modified King's Crown earlier but this is the traditional block. The first appearance in a catalog for this block was 1895 but it was surely being made way before then. We haven't been able to find the actual history on the block but considering it's basically squares and a Flying Geese unit, it was probably one of the earlier blocks being made.

Our friends continue to make great blocks each month and we love showing them off to you. Thank you to @frecklesontheside, @quiltinginthewoods, @mountainviewquilts, and @cmariequilts!

How the BOM works.

Each month, we will send out a newsletter with that month's block, instructions, tips for designers, and the ability to purchase Adobe Illustrator digital images from our store to add to a pattern you are writing. Be sure to sign up to receive our newsletter to get the free BOM instructions every month.

The newsletter will include the link to download the block so you can sew along with us. It is written with standardized wording that we use here at Quilt Pattern Writers. That way, if you are a pattern designer, you can use the wording in your pattern. If you are a designer looking for a ghostwriter, you can see some of our work as we use this wording throughout the patterns we write. The digital files will include step-out diagrams, diagrams for standard units and assembly, as well as the finished block. Think of all the time you will save when you start adding these to your library! All for a nominal cost that you can write off as a business expense.

Join Us

We hope you will join in the fun every month and make all twelve blocks. It is so fun to see how everyone puts their spin on a BOM quilt. And, we would love you to share your blocks with the tags @quiltpatternwriters, #qpw2024bom, #qpw2024samplerquilt, and #qpw.
