Block 3: Aunt Addie's Album

Well, well, well.
It seems like we are about due to add a little bit more to our BOM.
Are you ready?? Are you all caught up?? Looking forward to a bit more??
I hope the answers were yes, yes and yes!

This month we are going to add three more blocks.
Aunt Addie's Album.
It is an old favorite that has been around for a long long time. But, if you don't make a lot of traditional blocks or stars, it may be new to you.

Click here to download your copy of the pattern.

There are no big tricks for these blocks other than keeping some good contrast between the two fabrics that make up the star points.
The background fabrics can be all the same or all different, but be sure to keep them in your chosen color family. (What I mean is that you need to use the fabrics you chose for the "background". Mine is black, just like the string blocks.)

If you are new to the BOM, you can click here to get started from the beginning.

Happy stitching!


  1. Hello...I am downloading these as you post them but haven't started yet. I can't wait to start on it though! Just wanted to say thank you! Also, when I clicked to download block 3, it wasn't available. I'll check back again in a little while. :)

  2. Hi Rana! I'm having trouble downloading the block, too. I like this month's design! :)

  3. Hi! I'm having trouble downloading block 3 - will try later and THANK YOU for doing this wonderful, free BOM!

  4. Thank you. I purchased the background fabby for this today and hope I can start soon.

  5. I am enjoying downloading these BOM's and can't wait to get started on them-have to catch up on the Christmas sewing first!! Always too many projects to do and not enough hours in the day!!
    Thanks so much for this opportunity it is really great!!

  6. I'm new to the BOM and won't be able to catch up until next month, but then I am excited to get started.
