Calypso Kaleidoscope – 2015 Block of the Month pattern reveal
It’s time to unveil the 2015 Block of the Month quilt. Next year’s BOM will be sponsored by Moda Fabrics. I will be using the new Calypso Batiks line, which should be arriving at quilt shops near you this month, and Moda Bella solids in black as the neutral.
I’m calling the pattern Calypso Kaleidoscope after the line because this design reminds me of looking through a kaleidoscope as a kid. Just like the 2014 Block of the Month, I will be releasing free printable instructions through Craftsy and video tutorials on YouTube. Also just like last year we’ll just be making a few blocks each month with easy-to-follow instructions that make this quilt very easy. Really, it just looks fancy because it is set on point and the solid black sets off the bright, bold batiks. But you don’t have to tell your quilter friends that. You can just let them think you made an award winning quilt.
One difference is the new pattern will come out on the first Monday of the month. Now that I have a baby that needs my attention all the time, it is almost impossible to get the videos produced on a weeknight. So check back on January 5, 2015 for the instructions for the center blocks. I can’t wait to get started!
