SIMPLE DAYS block of the month


“Simple Days’ is a 9-part block of the month.

 Each block is made up of three stitcheries, some simple patchwork and pieced borders.

Each of the nine blocks measures 14.5” square before being sewn together as a quilt.

The final assembly and border instructions will be included with block nine.

The completed quilt (with a final border and binding) will measure 46” square.

 In a way this is a mystery BOM because you’ll only get to see the next month’s block when I send it to you, but be assured they are all lovely with three new stitchery/applique designs in each 14.5” block.

All the stitcheries in Simple Days were created to feature aspects of a simple life well lived and as there are 27 little designs scattered through the quilt you have the added option of using them individually in a variety of ways for smaller projects. 

Sketching and stitching Simple Days has quite truly been the happiest experience of my twelve year designing adventure because there's a piece of me in every little scene, the best bits I think. 

Each pattern includes detailed embroidery, applique and piecing instructions and I have included graphs to help with the block layout and final patchwork piecing. 

The materials required, threads and cutting instructions are included with the first block.

This is a great scrappy project if you're stuck at home and need to shop from your stash, or splurge on a fat quarter bundle that takes your fancy. I've used fabrics with very small prints (Heartstrings by Natalie Bird for Devonstone Fabrics) because in order to let the embroideries shine as they should this style of fabric is best.

Each month's three-part block is $11.95 AUD (around $9.30 USD) and you can use the link below to shop for them as they are released between January and September 2021.

  1. Thankyou so much for the link to your first Homemakers Heart magazine. Wow! I enjoyed it so much on my first read and I know that I will refer to it again in the coming months as I get myself organised. Like you - starting in one room at a time. I have also signed up for the Simple Days BOM. Once again it is so fresh, delicate, pretty and homey.....and so very you.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
