The February Block

If you are sewing the 2023 BOM Party with me this year, the February block pattern is now available in the portal!

This month, we will focus on making 8-at-a-time Half Square Triangles (also known as HSTs), and review the trimming of Flying Geese, as accurate trimming will be necessary to ensure that the points match well.

Also available this month due to popular request is a full-quilt coloring page, including the option to color-by-number =)

If you are participating in this block of the month, be sure to share your makes on social media with #sweetpotatoBOM to be eligible for this month’s prize, hosted by Kate at Quiltin Crazy.

Happy February!

Trellis to the Stars Interchangeable Block

If you haven’t already noticed, our 18″ interchangeable block pattern of the month was designed by the fabulous Hillary Cooper of Quiltberry Hill Designs. Based in Vancouver, Hillary is a pattern designer that loves a modern take on quilting design and technique. She is pretty active on Instagram, where you can find her @quiltberryhilldesigns, and is so fun to chat with!

In addition to her pattern, Hillary has graciously shared with us a free template that quilters can use to keep track of all of their works in progress (WIPs). Download the document below to get her free project tracker =)

January Block of the Month

Our 2023 Block of the Month Part Sew-Along is in full swing and I couldn’t be more excited to see all of the various versions of the January block! I’ve been inspired to make another BOM quilt using the fabric pull below:

While the Quilt Club Membership is open only a few times per year, quilters are welcome to join the BOM program at any time this year.

For $25 for the entire year, this program includes:
– A 12″ block pattern each month along with finishing instructions at the end of the year to guide you through making a 44″x58″ throw
– Video Tutorials that guide you through the trickiest steps for each month.
– Opportunities to win giveaway prizes
– Community – we are chatting it up in our Facebook group and sharing our makes!

Join the fun today – see you there!

Winter Fever Interchangeable Block

I’ve been at the cabin and Winter Fever was the quilt block of the month of December at the Sweet Potato Quilt Club – the interchangeable pattern allowed me to make 25 iterations of this block to make a queen sized-quilt! Now that it is quilted and bound, many friends have asked if the pattern is available, and sadly it was only available for the month of December at the Quilt Club. However, there are some things I’d like to change about its construction and would consider releasing it as a quilt pattern sometime in the future.

If you want to see how this block interacts and mingles when matched up with other blocks in the membership, check out the images below:

If you are interested in joining the quilt club where you receive a monthly 18″ interchangeable block pattern, sign up below to join the waitlist. We are open only a few times each year to new members.

A New Year, and a New Block of the Month Program

At the request of a member of the Sweet Potato Quilt Club, I started designing some smaller 12″ inch blocks. I got a little carried away with the task and before I knew it, I had designed (12) of them!

I would love to share each of them with you each month for the year of 2023! At the end, you can use the sashing and finishing instructions to make a 44″x58″ throw, or use each block as you wish.

Check out the fabric requirements below, and see if you can join us! Block of the Month Party begins January 1st, 2023 and it’s not too late to join the fun.

New Pattern – Fat Quarter Friendly

It’s coming soon! By popular request, the full quilt version of the Seek and You Will Shine July Mini pattern is almost here!

I ended up tweaking the block a bit – the original mini is 16 inches, but the blocks in the quilt pattern are 18 inches square, and have added components that allow them to replicate the star by interacting more with neighbor blocks.

This Beginner-Friendly pattern is not only fat quarter friendly, but it is realllly fat quarter friendly. There has got to be a fat quarter friendly meter somewhere, because each block uses up about 85% of each fat quarter. This to minimize the waste, but also to allow room in case there is a cutting mistake.

Here are the pattern sizes:
Mini (yes, again, but it’s different and bigger!) – 18″
Baby – 36″ x 36″
Throw – 54″ x 54″
Full/Bed – 90″ x 90″

The Pattern allows you to work through 3 Fabric Versions:
Two-Tone
Fat Quarters + Background Fabric (1 fat quarter per block)
Scrappy

It will be a pretty versatile pattern!

September Block of the Month

Easy quilt patterns for beginner quilters

The Sweet Potato Quilt Club is in full gear and the second block of the month, Blissful Burst, has been released. I would like to think (well, at least that is the feedback I’m getting) that these blocks are quick and easy to make, and are great beginner quilt patterns. At this point, we are just two months in and members have 28 block layout possibilities when they use the Quilt Club patterns!

The September Block of the Month, Blissful Burst

This block gives room to feature your larger prints in the center, and is simply cheerful in nature. Pattern uses 8-at-a-time HSTs, 4-at-a-time Flying Geese, and 2-at-a-time HSTs to help minimize fabric waste.

Check out the video below to see how this block interacts with previous block of the months.
