Block of the Month Quilt
What is a Block of the Month Quilt?
A block of the month quilt is a quilt project designed to be completed over a period of time, usually a block or section per month. Some block of the month quilt patterns are sewn over a 12 month period, others are 6 or 9. It really depends on the block of the month quilt design and how challenging it is.
Block of the month quilt patterns are a wonderful way to tackle a large quilt project. Breaking up a more complex quilt pattern into manageable monthly tasks makes them easier to complete.
Block of the month quilt patterns are very popular because the maker of the quilt can decide how to progress through the quilt. Often a block of the month quilt can be purchased as a kit which includes the monthly pattern and the fabrics needed for that quilt block. Customers make a monthly payment which is set up at the start of the block of the month program.These kits are then mailed out to customers each month. Receiving a parcel at regular intervals can be very exciting and helps to keep sewers on track with their quilt project.
Block of the month quilt patterns can also be offered as block of the month pattern programs. This is similar to the option previously mentioned although involves purchasing one monthly pattern at a time.
Some block of the month quilt patterns can be purchased as complete sets. This option is good for sewers who want to make a quilt at their own pace.
Another option for block of the month quilt patterns is to purchase them as e-patterns. This involves receiving an e-pattern for the quilt each month over a period of time or purchasing a complete set to download all at once.
