I am a beginner quilter. I sewed my very first stitch on a sewing machine in June 2014. My first few quilts are utterly awful by technical standards but by my own... I utterly adore everyone of them. Like children we all love our work but others sneer... I started a quilting group for other beginners like me on Facebook and so many lovely people have inspired me to create this BOM. The group if you want to look at it is www.facebook.com/groups/BeginnerQuilt Many quilting groups have tremendously talented people in it. These people are so inspiring but many are sadly unable and unwilling to help beginners, and many are quite rude and unkind to beginners. Forgetting the times people were patient with them as beginners. This motivated my creating the group. So with chatting to several people in the group it was decided we would start our own little Block of the Month. This is that BOM. This will be a pattern I am selling for the benefit for the Rennie Grove Hospice charity in the home counties around London England. This Hospice works tirelessly with people in hospices and the funds will be used towards making a quilt to raffle for the Hospice in 2017. I really hope you enjoy this group and block! Please upload your finished block here and if you like the pattern please leave me a review!! Many thanks in advance and please drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org if you need anything!
