2012 Block of the Month Roundup!

Take a peek at a few of the finished Sew How We Sew Block of the Month quilts using my 2012 BOM patterns. Here’s a photo of my first quilt, made primarily from the pink/orange fabrics in the “Happiness” line by Kathy Davis from Free Spirit.

Up next is my quilt using the gray/citron color palette (initially inspired by the colors in a tree trunk).  I’m very pleased with a fantastic fabric find for the border which coordinated perfectly with the citron/gray colors and added a bit of interest with hints of green, brown and orange. It’s called “LuLu” from Michael Miller.

Sally Garrison has finished two of her three quilts. If you recall, she selected three different color families from the “Paris Flea Market” line (being re-released in January) by 3 Sisters from Moda. Sally opted to make a narrower border on her quilts, which looks great. Here are photos of the aqua and yellow quilts:

Margaret Fritz was one of the first to finish her quilt (she’s working on two more). It’s made with a jelly roll in the “Porcelain” line by Lynne Wilson from Moda.

And in case you missed my October 9th post, here’s Allison Johns’ quilt, made from a jelly roll in the “Hometown” line by Sweetwater from Moda.

You can catch a glimpse of one of Jennifer’s BOM quilts by visiting our current photo tour of “Quilting in the Garden” on the Gallery tab above.

As you finish your Block of the Month quilt(s), please send us a photo to display in our gallery. You can email your photos to our address seehowwesew@gmail.com (be sure to include your name and where you’re from).

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this project and many thanks everyone who made the journey with me. If these quilts inspired you, all the directions can be found in our FREE patterns library.

I hope it brought you . . .

  1. Hi there! I know I’m a bit late but I finished last years BOM and entered it our guild show over the weekend. I had a lot of compliments on it but no ribbons. Thank you for the block patterns they were a lot of tun to make and I love my quilt! It’s called “My Good Fortune” because it was made from a jelly roll called “Good Fortune” and because I made it for me!!! Here is a link to a photo of it on FB: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=687603911250666&set=a.119270738083989.20229.100000031906067&type=1&theater

    I hope this works and you can see it! Thanks again, it was fun to make!


    1. Hello Peggy,

      You created a beautiful BOM quilt from Christie’s pattern. I’ll let her know that you’ve posted a photo. Congrats!



      1. Thanks Jennifer! I was looking at the Gallery and it looks like you used the same jelly roll for your BOM. It is beautiful and I love the setting.


  2. The quilts are beautiful! One of the items on my New Years’ Resolutions List will be to finish mine! Thanks for doing this for us. Also on the agenda for 2013 is Laura’s Craftsy sampler quilt.
