March 2024 BOM 3 is here!

QPW Sampler Quilt with three blocks filled in

Can you believe it's almost March already?! It's time for BOM Block 3!

We had so much fun making Block 2 this month. It's hard to believe March is here already and that it's time for Block 3. This year is flying!


Aunt Sukey's Choice Block of the Month Block 3

March BOM - Block 3

For the March BOM, we chose Aunt Sukey's quilt block. Last month, we made HSTs using the 8-at-a-time method. This month we are going simple with SNF (Stitch and Flips).


The Aunt Sukey's quilt block pattern can fit into several categories. It can be an easy block, because it is made up of commonly used quilt patches, such as the SNF and strip piecing. It can also be considered a confident beginner skill level because of the stitch and flip pieces as well as having more pieces required to make the quilt block. By taking your time and paying attention to the accuracy of your seam allowance, you will find this an enjoyable block to create.



February Block 2 samples

We are loving the color combinations we are seeing from our readers. They are so diverse and make the blocks look so different. Thank you to Rachel of Quilted Daydreams (upper left), Tammy of Quilting in the Woods (bottom left), and Tausha of Freckles on the Side (bottom right) for sharing your February blocks. Rachel is experimenting with different colors and patterns each month with your blocks. How fun is that? Tammy chose to alter it up a little with an additional fabric. Great job! Lisa's is the upper right block because, of course, she had to make one, too.



How the BOM works.

Each month, on the last Wednesday, 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 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.
