Children's Library BOM Block One: Mother Goose Rhymes

Welcome to the fourth year of our Exclusive Free Mystery Block of the Month by Pat Sloan! This year Pat's theme is 'The Children’s Library'. Each month Pat will share a favorite childhood book. We are really excited about taking a trip down memory lane this year with our old favorites!

The Block Download is after Pat Tells you about the book down below.

The supply list and blocks during the year will always be found at our landing page for the mystery. You'll find a list of participating shops here. The three prior years are also still available at the ‘Mystery BOM’ tab above.

Pat Sloan on The 2017 Mystery

Our children’s book for January is one that belongs to my friend, designer & shop owner, Roseann Kermes. I asked Roseann what her favorite book was and she didn’t hesitate… it’s ‘Mother Goose Rhymes’ and she has a copy of the book!

Not only does she have a vintage copy, but she also shares the story of how she came to own it in an article she wrote.. it’s a GREAT story! Read about it here.

My second featured shop is owned by my long time friends Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith. They have a super gorgeous large shop, and a really active store doing loads of Block of the Months by mail. Both these shop owners are also fabric and pattern designers and have written several books too! I wrote to find out what projects they are doing right now for themselves.

Sarah - “2017 is off to a great start. I received notice that 2 of my quilts were juried into QuiltCon so I'm busy making labels & getting them ready to ship to Savannah for the show. My next fabric line debuts in February--I'm super-excited about it and can't wait to start sharing my projects with it. While I wait, I'm busy making some new quilts from my Color Crush flannel plaids

Dolores - “Well, I have been working on several things. But top priority is having to make a couple of baby quilts for my first cousin. This will be their great nephew due in February 2017. And, then trying to get a niece a quilt made for getting married. Hope to get it made before their first anniversary. (Have until October)’
