New BOM for 2024

It's that time of the year again, where we tempt you with next years "FREE" Block of the Month
over on our Cackling Stitches Facebook page. 

We have put our heads together and come up with a fun new quilt that we are sure you will enjoy!
It all starts Jan 1 2024, but we know how much you like to start planning and collecting supplies.
What better time to grab some of those fabulous Halloween prints, we all love to collect.

Let's get to the story behind our 2024 quilt!

This quilt has a bit of a "no particular reason" twist to it, as well!

Remember those days gone by, when paper dolls were so poplar?

Well, get out your crafty side and let nostalgia take over, because this quilt doubles as a paper doll quilt. 

The list of supplies you need for the quilt can be found HERE.
Don't start cutting anything just yet. We will provide more instructions with the patterns, starting in January.

As in past years, the blocks for the patterns are free for the month they are posted. Once that month is over, the block will go into our individual ETSY shops for purchase for a nominal fee. We do ask that you honor our copyright and do not share the pattern with others. You can always send them to our Facebook page where they can download their own pattern directly from us. We put a lot of time and effort into designing BOMs for you each year, and we want to keep the blocks free for all of you. With that being said, if you just can't wait for each month to roll around, the complete pattern will be available for purchase for $15, starting Jan 1. 

After all this, I suppose you want to see the quilt we have designed. LOL!!
Without further ado...

She's bright, she's bold and she is "Bona Lisa" with all her glorious ugly sweaters and accessories. And of course the dusty ole barn!
The center is just asking for some interchangeable sweaters to keep her warm.
(You build them on a felt backing)
You can add a pocket to the back of the quilt if you choose, to store them in.

Want a fun interactive wall hanging?

Make a second set of the block sweaters, or let your imagination go wild.  There will be additional sweaters available, but they are top secret right now! 
In fact, we want you to become designers too, and we will be watching to see what creepy sweet sweaters, you create. There may just be something in for you, if you do...but more on that later!
Start collecting up bits and pieces of ribbons, trims, old jewelry and anything you can imagine to dress up your Bona Lisa!

 til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
