Hello! Today I’m happy to be sharing the Quilt Block of the Month December 2021. Along with the December block pattern, I’m also sharing the finishing instructions for the quilt. In today’s video I also talk about the different ways I finished each of my quilts and share up close photos of the quilting for both projects.
Quilt Block of the Month December 2021
- The quilt is a sampler with 12 different unique pieced blocks. No applique’ or paper piecing required.
- Patterns release monthly on the first Thursday of the month here on the blog.
- Each month, a step-by-step video tutorial sharing how to make that month’s block will be featured. Watch the video here on the blog or on the YouTube channel here.
- Fabric Requirements for blocks: I suggest 12-15 fat quarters for the large blocks (fat eighths will work for the small blocks). You’ll also need 2-½ yards of background for the larger blocks and 1-½ yards of background for the smaller blocks.
- Find links to all of the previous posts in this year’s BOM here.
- I also have just a few more Happy Days bundles and yardage in the shop here.
2021December Quilt Block Details
The December block is a fun mix of half square triangles and squares and rectangles. I was able to use some left over half-square triangles for this block in both of my quilts, so I didn’t have to do a lot of sewing. The little outer border also sets of the block. I used a low-volume print for those outer borders in both quilts.
