I have been writing this newsletter since the very first issue, and this is the first time I have seen a block of the month series with ALL 12 patterns in the top 100 on the Checker website! Why? Because Nancy has thought of everything! Each reasonably priced booklet features a center block with a monthly theme surrounded by three different pieced blocks. Each month, your customers can make a wall hanging that all measure the exact same size.
If that is not enough eye candy, the center blocks and one of each pieced block can be sewn into a beautiful throw. Talk about options! And, as always, Checker carries everything you need right down to the button packets for each month. Why not order them all and offer a discount if they buy all of the booklets in the beginning?
See what’s happening On Wander Lane this month with Schoolhouse Haven On Wander Lane by Art to Heart. This 8-1/2″ x 11″ pattern offers a block of the month stand alone quilt measuring 30″ square, plus six additional projects including an additional appliqué and pieced quilt, a table topper, a pot holder, pillows, mini quilt and mug rug! The main appliqué block and one each of the three pieced border blocks is used to make the large “On Wander Lane” BOM quilt measuring 60″ x 72″. There’s lots of fun happening On Wander Lane!
The remaining books in the series offer the same potential.
These books are due to arrive in January so schedule a class now.

BOHO Blooms is a five part block of the month that is just genius! Each part can stand alone or complete them all to create a 70 inch square of work of art! The first four panels measure 25-1/2″ x 41-1/2″. The fifth block – The Butterfly is the center 14″ square that provides the center of this heirloom. Add a border – or borders – if desired to make it fit the space.
