March's Block

Cabin Sweet Cabin!
Love this little cabin. It will be set among the pine trees. I can imagine sitting by the fire, with a good book and a cup of tea, watching the snow fall outside. I'd be all cozy warm under a snuggly quilt in my favorite chair. Wilson curled up on a braided rug by the fireplace.
This month’s block is cabin block. You will make a total of two blocks and the pattern can be found for FREE this month in my Craftsy Shop and also on my website. Also, if you ever need to find past blocks or tutorials, I have a tab at the top of my blog labeled 2016 BOM that you can click on to get links to all past blog postings for this quilt. A complete listing of fabric supplies can be found on my website, Craftsy Shop and also under the 2016 BOM tab on my blog. Remember to post pictures of your progress on Instagram #quiltdoodledesignsBOM2016 (you can also tag me at Quilt Doodle Designs) There is also a flickr group you can join and post pictures. Remember you need to post those pictures to qualify for the monthly drawing for the prizes.

When the quilt is pieced together and you are finished quilting, you can sew a star button on the top of each tree. Button kits are available from
 Hillcreek Designs! The button packs are available in my Etsy Shop. I have packaged the button packs a couple of different ways. Either as one big pack with everything in it or individually for each design/row.
This month’s winner is
Wendy has won a set of Star Buttons to go with her tree blocks!
Wendy, please email me your address.

I've added a wreath on the door. Although it's not on the pattern I thought it could be a really cute embellishment. Make a yo-yo out of green fabric and then sew a red button in the center.
Here all of my pieces all laid out and ready to be pieced.
To make the 'roof line' I sew corner to corner to make the angle of the roof.
Here I am piecing the sections together to complete the block.
.... still piecing but getting closer to a finished block.

There's also a handy dandy grab-able button to post on your blog to help me promote and get the word out about this fun Christmas BOM .  Please help to spread the word!
 Happy Quilting!

  1. Is there a link to download or this block?

  2. Bobbie here. Love the blocks. Lots of fun looking at the quilts from last year's BOM. Sad to hear of the challenging start to 2016. It is indeed amazing when our spirit breaks thru and we realize we are happy again. Welcome back. Quilting does piece us all together.

  3. Thank you so much. These blocks are so fun.

  4. Love this block of the month, Thank you!
