Hello quilters, and welcome to Month 3 of the Words to Live By BOM! Month 3 was so fun to create! I truly enjoyed the simplicity of it, and the message behind the panels. I have beautiful photos, helpful tips and even a fun addition to the Lemon panel for you this month!

Before getting started, I want to encourage you to download the FREE Bonus Pattern featuring Block 3 of the BOM. It includes all of the yardages, cutting instructions and block assembly instructions required to make a super fun, and scrappy, throw quilt. The best part?

Welcome to Month 2 of the Words to Live By BOM! Once again, I am Natalie Crabtree, designer and writer of this BOM. It’s been my pleasure to work with Stacie and collaborate with her team on this project.

First and foremost, I apologize for my tardiness on this Month 2 blog. What can I say? Life, work, children…..all the above.

Welcome to the Words to Live By BOM Quilt-A-Long! My name is Natalie Crabtree, quilt pattern designer and pattern writer. I have been honored to work alongside Stacie Bloomfield and her wonderful team for over 2 years now.

Fabric and quilt pattern design are two creative outlets that are somewhat secretive by nature. Sometimes Stacie and I work months (and even up to a year) on projects before we can introduce them to you. We anxiously design and hope that it is received well, and that is resonates with customers when it is finally released.

That is what is so special and unique about the Words to Live By fabric collection and quilt.
