The (Free) Craftsy Block of the Month Starts Now!

Happy New Year, everyone! We hope you’ve saved at least one bottle of bubbly from last night’s festivities, because we’ve got something else to celebrate: The Craftsy Block of the Month! It’s here, it’s free, and we’re ready to register your enrollment!

 Instructed by Amy Gibson, The Craftsy Block of the Month is a year-long class in twelve segments, each one posted on the first day of each month. For the first ten months, you’ll learn to create two of the most versatile, eclectic, fun and creative quilt blocks. Then, the last two months of the year will be dedicated to binding, backing and finishing your quilt. So that means the Craftsy Block of the Month will give you a total of 20 blocks plus a ton of techniques, and by the end of the class, you’ll have a COMPLETED quilt!

You probably know Amy already from her site StitcheryDickoryDock or her iTote Workshop right here on Craftsy. She’s got some serious quilting skills, but she’s also got the teaching skills to match. So you’ll find learning from her is fun and easy. Plus, she brings a whole new level of coolness to quilting. As with all our classes, feel free to ask her questions as you go!

So pop the cork, break out the stash, and enroll in The Craftsy Block of the Month today!

As a special treat, we’ve created the gorgeous, automatically self-updating Craftsy Block of the Month badge that you see in our right sidebar!  It’s the perfect thing to add to your blog or website, to let everyone know that you’re participating.  (Even if you’re not, it’s so cute you’ll want to post it anyway!) Click here to get yours.

Hi, this is Josh from Craftsy… the fat quarter bundle used in the Block of the Month will be available from Craftsy next week. If you are enrolled in the class, we will send you an email when the fabric is available with information on how you can purchase it.

I’m glad that Josh commented oh how the fat quarter bundles that will be used for this series will be available. I was searching every part of the Craftsy website wondering how to order the fabric. Now I know what to expect.

I’ve already signed up, watched the 1st lesson and have made two mini-block versions of the blocks Amy taught. Super easy. Super cute and thank you for this free course. It is an opportunity to see how lessons on Craftsy work. Looking forward to possibly taking other courses!

I am interested in the block of the month, but would really like to see what it will be before I commit. What size quilt is it and how much will the supplies be? Can you give me any details?

I’m retired and live partly in Australia and partly in Europe (Denmark and Switzerland).
About 5 years ago I started quilting and am lucky to have a great quilting group in Australia,
where I spend most of my time.

I have made both blocks. I think the first one has way too much material in the center.

On the second one, I had to adjust my seams to make it align, so I must be doing something incorrectly???

I am going to try making two more just to see if I can do better…….

Hi Sharon, These are great questions / comments for you to post to the class itself. You can start a discussion at any point in the class and Amy or other students will answer you. Give it a shot & see what happens! :)

I can’t get the video for the block of the month to work, which is disappointing. I will keep trying.

I am looking forward to learning new techniques. I only have I- phone, no pc. Is there anyway I can get supply list? … Fabric requirements? I know that a yard and half was mentioned for background on Jan lesson. Is this total? Or just what you were working with? Thanks for your help in advance.

Haven’t started yet but I think I want to try purples and greens for my color choices, need to find the time to go through my stash first before I go purchase new fabric. Can’t wait to get started.
