June Blocks from my Quilter's Block a Day Calendar

Are you confused yet? Do you know which calendar I'm talking about? Sometimes I even confuse myself!


I'm talking about the perpetual calendar that was a best seller for 10 years, published by Martingale (That Patchwork Place). In 2016, Patricia Bryant made a block a day and completed all 366 of those blocks. I featured them each week in 2017. In case you missed those links, I've got them here.

June 4-10: Week 23
June 11-17: Week 24
June 18-24: Week 25
June 25-July 1: Week 26

(The links to the free patterns on those pages are no longer available - sorry.)

This group of 30 blocks in two sizes is a treasure trove of patterns! These are for the month of June. (I have to release this early since I reveal the next BOM for the 2018 Tea Party on the first of the month)

I've also included two quilt patterns and a tutorial on how to make half-square triangles quick!

Here are the two patterned quilts. One of them, Arkansas Meadow Rose, is a favorite of mine and I still own the one I made about 20 years ago.

Arkansas Meadow Rose: 49" x 49"
Here's the block. It is a traditional, vintage pattern from the early 1900s.

And the second quilt offered in this compendium of June blocks is Idaho Beauty: 35" x 57". Big 20" blocks!

Here's Patricia's Idaho Beauty block:

47 pages of blocks in TWO sizes. All templates full size for tracing. Clear rotary cutting directions. All this for $8.00!

The last time I checked Amazon, this calendar (now out of print) sells for $325! (Ha, ha. Yes, someone is trying to sell it for that; but it's still available for $25 - whew!)
