Block One -
Our Globetrotting journey starts in my home town, Washington DC! I lives just outside our wonderful capital in the Virginia suburbs. I feel so lucky to be able to take part in great museums, festivals and explore the history of our country!

The center block is our largest block and sets the stage for our trip around the world!

Scroll down to watch my video about the block!


Inspiration from Our Nation's Capital
I wanted to create a block inspired by history. I found this old map of DC and used it as my inspiration. Visit my blog to learn more about the creation of my first block in Globetrotting.  Here is the map:

More from Pat on Block One

I highly recommend that with dark/light quilts you prewash your fabric. I don't want any tears later when you wash that quilt and it runs blue onto white ..eep! The step of prewashing can be done quickly and then you are ready to rock and roll.

We have a Flickr page for sharing photos. Click the link below to go to the group page and become a group member for free, then you will be able to upload pictures of your own materials selections and the blocks that you create throughout the BOM.

Block of the Month Quilt Project

Looking to grow your quilting skills? Each month you'll receive a set of blocks that will challenge you a bit. No templates are needed; every piece is cut with a rotary cutter and your favorite quilting rulers.
Your monthly kit will include enough fabric to make the required blocks and for you to choose placement of color. I'll place each month's block on our website so you can see our block - but you will have enough fabric to mix it up to your liking. Save your leftovers each month for use in a future month.
