Wildflower Block | January 2018 Heartland Heritage

12" finished Wildflower Block

Wow, can you believe that 2018 is already here?? Not us! Last year really flew by and now it’s time to welcome January. We are kicking off the new year with the first block of Heartland Heritage, the Wildflower.

12" finished Wildflower Block

The Wildflower block measures 12″ square when finished and uses 4 different fabrics. Amy and I pulled from our stash of fabric scraps.

If you have not grabbed the Heartland Heritage calendar yet, be sure to check our retail partner list to find a shop near you.  To get you started, here are two of our finished blocks.

    I am loving this calendar and so excited to have a beautiful quilt in the end! Thank you so much for doing this!

  4. Please Post a picture of the back of your quilt and a close up of the quilting. Is this the complete post for January? I thought this was a sew along with tutorials? I am a new quilter and would love to see tutorials and more elaboration on your technique, choosing colors and fabrics, etc. Getting the many points to match up on this block was difficult, some tips would be so helpful. I really look forward to completing this quilt with you! thanks!

    1. Hello Patricia,
      Amy & I both have tips on tricks each month on our sites. From time to time we will be sharing quick videos on different techniques. Two have been shared so far.

  5. […] Stitches and it has also turned into a fun BOM project.  The first month’s block is the Wildflower Block and it’s one of my […]

  6. I can’t even find where we can download the block or the directions for the BOM. I would love to make this but getting very discouraged as have looked everywhere. If anyone can help direct me that would be wonderful. Kelly

    1. Thank you for your note Kelly. Each month we will be sharing pictures of our blocks as inspiration. At this time Heartland Heritage is not being offered in a downloadable format. You can purchase the calendar pattern at your local shop or here on-line: https://shop.inspiring-stitches.com/collections/new/products/2018-heartland-heritage-block-of-the-month-calendar-1

  7. I bought my calendar last year when they were first released, I have been waiting to be notified of when the bom starts……I guess I must not have signed up for the email letter…..I filled in the info on this site with my email and name, is that going to put me on the list to be notified on the next block? Thanks

    1. Hello Dyann,
      There is no formal sign up. We post here on the first of the month and on our respective blogs, http://www.Amyscreativeside.com & http://www.TheSewingLoft.com on the second Wednesday of each month.

  8. I just started making Wild Flower. I’m not having any trouble but thought there would be a video or verbal instruction on line for conformation.

    1. Hello Valerie,
      Amy & I both have tips on tricks each month on our sites. From time to time we will be sharing quick videos on different techniques. Two have been shared so far. Looking forward to seeing your blocks stitched up.

  10. You mentioned that you were going to share a Baby size quilt requirement with use. Maybe I should say “I believe you did.” Have you done this and I just can’t find it?

    Happy Creating and thank-you Donna

    1. it appears this post did not go through oops. Is there a smaller size available?
      thanks
      Donna

      1. Hello Donna,
        Amy & I are hosting an additional sew along on our respective blogs, http://www.AmysCreativeSide.com & http://www.TheSewingLoft.com, that requires one block from each month. Towards the end of the year we will share the smaller size layout for those interested to stitch up.
        ~Heather

    2. Hello Donna,
      Thanks so much for your note. Amy & I are sharing a bonus layout with the sew along we are hosting on our blogs. You will need to make one additional block for each month. Towards the end of the year we will release the final layout. So until then, keep your eyes peeled!
