"There's No Place Like Home" by Denise

Are many of you overwhelmed by the thought of working on an entire quilt when you see a great pattern in a magazine or shop? Like most of us you are probably juggling work, kids, laundry, meetings, etc. and find the prospect of having enough time to devote to this new project difficult. Where will you find the time to spend all of the hours sewing?

Well, have you ever thought of a Block of the Month quilt? Just as the name implies, you only need to make one block each month. That length of time allows you to work whenever you get a chance and not feel pressured to "produce". There are many options to choose from regarding the type of Block of the Month you can participate in. Do you want to try your hand at paper piecing? Or maybe you have been admiring those wool applique quilts at recent quilt shows? The choice is yours.

How you receive your monthly packet is also up to you. Many quilt stores run a Block of the Month (BOM) with fabric kits and directions for that block. Each month they have the new block on display along with everything you need to make it. Or, you might choose an internet shop that will send you everything through the mail.

Denise made this BOM and discovered that she loves applique. Either way, it is a fun way to make a quilt without too much anxiety. Why not give it a try?
