Cackling Stitches 2024 Block Of The Month

I was pretty much missing in action from Thanksgiving to Christmas with a stupid bug that had me coughing up both lungs and feeling pretty yucky. I've heard that there were a lot of you out there suffering the same thing, so you know it wasn't much fun. I'm sorry if you were one of them and I hope you're feeling better!

Every year since around 2016 I've been involved in a BOM with various friends. It's been a fun experience creating blocks with all of them! A few years ago, Joan from Moosestash Quilting and Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks, joined their creative ways with mine and started a Halloween Facebook page, Cackling Stitches. Our first BOM was Hagatha's House. We had so much fun with it and kept coming up with new BOM ideas.




Next on the BOM list for 2024...


Joan wrote this poem about Bona Lisa...she is so clever!

It's amazing how different it can look with other fabrics.

How does our Bona Lisa's Sweater Emporium BOM work? 

It runs from January 1st through August 31st. 

All block releases happen on our Cackling Stitches Facebook page HERE.

We even give you the fabric requirements early to help you conjure/gather your fabrics.
You can find it HERE.

It's not a mystery BOM. We show you each of our finished quilts!

On the first day of each month, we release a block pattern (sometimes it's more than one)
 that is free for the entire calendar month. After that, those blocks go into our individual 
ETSY shops where you can purchase them for $2 each. 

New and free block(s) then appear for the new month...and so on, and so on.

Beginning January 1st, the ENTIRE pattern is available in each of our ETSY shops for $15.
We've had so many people ask us if they can buy the whole thing at once, so we decided to go for it.
If you can't wait for each block release or you don't have a Facebook page, this is for you!

We hope you appreciate the time we put into creating this BOM and understand that we keep
 the costs to a minimum for you. We ask that you respect our copyrights and do not share the 
pattern with others. You're welcome to direct your friends to our Cackling Stitches Group 
Facebook or any of our ETSY shops so they can get their own patterns starting January 1st.
