Sun, Sand, And Sea BOM Begins Today...Block #1

Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy had such a fun idea for this year's BOM and I'm loving it!
The Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM begins today with a beautiful sun to warm our souls.

This month's design is by Amy!


On the first day of each month a new block will be released. There's a Facebook page
for sharing the blocks you sew and to see what everyone else is up to.

Lucky me, I'm using Riley Blake Designs Crayola solid colors for the entire quilt.
It makes me smile just looking at those cute boxes!


You can find the instructions for the February block at Sew Incredibly Crazy.

Tip: I like to use a light weight fusible interfacing on the back of my block to stabilize the fabrics 
when I machine embroidery around the edges. Heat n Bond Fusible Interfacing is my favorite.

  2. Great fabrics and I adore this BOM with the nice yellow sun! No sunshine here today...cloudy and cold again! I also like Heat n Bond and used about 20 yards of Ultra Hold while creating my Fabric Magic Stars. Fabulous February Dear...

  8. What are the measurements for the dresden blades? I would prefer to use one of my templates if possible. I can't wait to get started!

    1. Dianne, You are a no-reply blogger so I can't email you with an answer. You can download Amy's pattern from her post here: http://sewincrediblycrazy.blogspot.com/2017/02/block-1-of-sun-sand-and-sea-2017-bom.html. Her pattern has a template on it so you could get the measurements and compare them to the templates you have. Happy sewing!
