Rose in Bloom: Block of the Month
The Rose in bloom Block of the Month features 10 classic quilt block designs each in a 6″ finished block size. Every month will feature one design made 4x (in different print combinations) for a total of 40 blocks by the end. The sampler blocks will be arranged into this fancy flower-inspired layout finishing at 84.5″ x 84.5″. Fun fact – most of the blocks are beginner-friendly so it’s a great intro to quilt alongs.
How to Sign Up
Fat Quarter Shop has opened up signups for the Rose in Bloom Block of the Month for those who’d like to receive block kits each month. This signup will include a copy of the book + everything you need to make the quilt top + binding. (The book will ship with the first month’s kit.) It is anticipated to begin shipping November 2021.
Add a Backing Kit
Backing kits are sold separately and also available for preorder. The backing kit will include 8 yards of fabric total to make the pieced floral backing from the book (see below). Backing kits will ship the same time as the first month’s block kit (approx. November 2021).
Preorder the Book
Of course, you can purchase the Rose in Bloom: Block of the Month book by itself and use your own fabrics. This quilt design offers a layout option for any 6″ sampler blocks you’ve made from other quilt alongs (i.e. Sewcialites or Moda Blockheads). Preorder the book now and save 5%. It’s spiral-bound–a feature I love since it means the book can lay flat at the cutting table or at my sewing machine. Just remember you don’t need to purchase the book if you’re signing up for the Block of the Month subscription.
I don’t know about you but I’m counting down the days to November. Will you sew along with me?
