Introducing : Hop, Skip & Jump BOM

Y'all I am sooo stoked to kick off our very first block-of-the-month (aka BOM) program!  I mean, like, really excited!  If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen me share assorted photos as I have been working on the project - the design, the images, etc.  Well, its time to share all the deets!

What Are We Making?
This quilt will have twelve 12-inch blocks, some sashing, two borders and will finish at 60 in x 74 in.

You Can Do It!
First of all, this is a beginner-friendly quilt that requires no special rulers or equipment.  We'll be rotary cutting, marking a few special lines for some blocks, but y'all can do it!  There are two basic, traditional blocks that we'll be working on over the course of the BOM and we'll just add some special touches to them to jazz them up a little.

How Does It Work?
Each month from June 2013-May 2014, you'll receive a new block pattern.  Patterns will be delivered to subscribers in PDF format by e-mail.  Patterns will include step-by-step instructions, photos, and cutting diagrams to help you make your blocks. The last month of the BOM, you will also receive instructions for completing your quilt.

There are TWO types of subscriptions for our BOM program.

  1. Reserve your spot to receive printed patterns and a block kit in the mail each month.  This includes all the fabric you need for each month's block, printed patterns, access to the PDF version of the patterns, and a few little surprises along the way! :-)  See all the details about this option, including the reservation fee and monthly pricing, here. Quantities are limited.
  2. Or sign up to receive the patterns only by e-mail.  Sign up by 5/15 for just $10.  (Price will be $12 after 5/15/13.) 

Block kit subscribers will be making their quilt in the beautiful Happy Go Lucky line from Bonnie & Camille (yardage arrives in May - precuts available now).

Share & Connect
The Hop, Skip, & Jump Flickr group is ready to go!  You'll be able to share your blocks, ask questions and cheer each other on as we go.
