Block of the Month Program for Guilds and Groups

Looking for a BOM program for your guild? Our Build-Your-Own-BOM is the answer! 12 monthly block patterns emailed directly to your members.

Here's how it works:



Select any 12 blocks, from any of the Summer Sampler Series quilt-alongs (2016, 2017, and 2018). A list of available blocks is included below.

January February March and so on ...




Choose other options. At the end of the BOM, we will provide finishing instructions for 2 layout options: A classic 12-block layout, and your choice of larger quilt options (shown below). You can also select optional "bonus blocks" at an additional fee per person, in order to fill out your members' quilts.



Enroll your members. Your guild members can subscribe via our online shop (so that your guild doesn’t have to collect funds), or you can collect the money from your members and pay for the BOM in one lump sum. The choice is yours.



Your members will receive each month’s block via email. On the first Monday of each month, we will email your subscribers a link to download that month’s block pattern. Finishing instructions and any "bonus blocks" will be emailed with the final monthly block.

Choices for BOM Finishing Options

For guilds and groups participating in the Block of the Month program, you will automatically receive the "Classic Layout" finishing instructions. You can also choose a second finishing option from the choices that follow, to give your members a larger quilt option.
