We’re nine months into Pat Sloan’s Mystery Block-of-the-Month through Free Quilt Patterns. I love block of the months because they provide instant gratification and help you feel productive when you have limited sewing time each month.
I’m using The Potting Shed collection by Holly Taylor for Moda Fabrics for my quilt. I’ve had a beautiful herb garden this year, and this fabric reminds me of lavender, which evokes a sense of calm and whimsy every time I work with it.
Here are all of my blocks together! There is only one more and then I can do the setting. I’m happy with my balance of colors and contrast — sometimes with a block of the month it can be way to forget to think about the quilt as a whole.
There’s plenty of time to catch up if you’re just joining the block of the month! Making these blocks is a highlight of each month, so I hope you decide to quilt along with everyone! (See my previous blocks here.)
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
I’d love for you to follow me on Instagram @lindsmayland to connect more!
