Apple Cider Block of the Month

Welcome to the Apple Cider BOM!

I am so excited about this sampler style block of the month. Its design was loosely inspired by embroidery samplers which are designed to teach different embroidery stitches and allow for practicing them through repetition. In this quilt, each block was designed to teach various paper piecing skills. As an experienced foundation paper piecer, I enjoyed sewing these blocks. But they are also great for someone just beginning, especially because I videotaped myself sewing every block and providing pointers along the way. I think that the videos would be the key to success for a beginner. If you are an advanced paper piecer, you may be fine without them but might pick up some new skills with them! Also, and this will come as a shock to some of my followers, some of these blocks are not paper pieced! There's a little mix in order to achieve the look I was going for.

What you will receive if you purchase the Apple Cider BOM:

1.  10 block patterns and basic directions for their assembly.  These assume a general knowledge of quilting and paper piecing.

2.  A Welcome PDF that you can download immediately containing fabric requirements, and some helpful tips.  

3.  A fabric organizer, found at the end of the Welcome PDF.

4.  Instructions to complete a 60" x 72" quilt by the end of December 2022.

Add-On Supplementary Videos (an additional $20)

1. 10 videos walking you step by step through each block making the quilt achievable for the paper piecing novice.

2. The videos include all my tips and tricks for paper piecing.

3. I explain how I decide to cut my fabric, and how I place it while paper piecing.

4. There will be tips to help even those who routinely paper piece.

**Be sure to select these add-on video lessons at check out!**


New instructions and videos will be available on the first of each month throughout 2022, except for August. I am giving you both July and August to complete the Y Stitch section because there is a lot of piecing, and it's summer! You will access all of these through CourseCraft. CourseCraft will automatically send you an email when I release a new file (provided your notifications settings are set to trigger emails when new lessons become available). I will also remind you to log on by posting on Instagram and Facebook.

December will focus on quilt top assembly.
