Christmas Table Topper Mini Block of the Month


The next event on Desert Bloom Quilting will be a short Block of the Month (BOM). It is a free event for anyone that wants to join. One block will be released a month for 3 months. Each block will come with detailed assembly instructions and pictures. This page will be updated with the block instructions. Instructions will be released at 8am EST on the day of release, and you can locate them by coming back here to this page. The finished quilt size is approximately 41" x 41" and while it may look a little intimidating, if you can sew a good 1/4" seam and have basic cutting skills you will be fine!
