Introducing Autumn's Bounty

A Free Block of the Month!

Autumn is nipping at our heels, and you know what that means:
Gorgeous Leaves
Back to School
Hay Rides
Corn Mazes
Apple Pie
Pumpkin Spice Lattes
Nippy Mornings
And, of course, the perfect quilting weather!

So, let's celebrate it all with a fun new BOM.
This pattern was inspired by my quilting girlfriends.
We are taking a year off from our usual round-robin quilt projects and doing this mystery BOM instead.
Join us if you want to. It's gonna be fun. And did I mention, it has an Autumn theme.

Block 1: The Pumpkin

Grab the BOM Button!

Update: I was recently made aware of the fact that I did not come back to this post and link in Block 4. Oopsies!!

But, in all honesty, I will probably not remember this faux pas a month from now either!!
So... please remember I will post the next block on the second Monday of every month. And don't get left behind!!

Did you hear about our new POM??!!
If not, you can check it out here and here.
