Block #1 of the It's a "Wild" Life Block of the Month

Welcome to our 
3rd Annual Block of the 
Month.
Our previous years have 
included quilts from 
inspirations from 
and 

This year, we
have a little "Wild" Life
planned
for all of you.

I hope you are all excited to 
begin our newest BOM.

So without further ado, 
here is our 1st Block.
Well, Blocks!!


We decided to start you 
all off pretty easy for the first block.



It is called Maple Leaves.
It was created using beautiful fabrics, 
by one of our BOM sponsors

The leaves colors are from my stash
full of my favorite Riley Blake fabrics 
and the background is 
Outdoors Wood Grain Cream
from The Great Outdoors Fabric line.


The block pattern can be found HERE.
It will be free for the month
of February, after that time there will 
be a small fee.

Supplies for the It's a "Wild" Life Block of the Month

Many have asked, what 
supplies do I need to start the
It's a "Wild" Life
Block of the Month?
I happened to make
a Facebook Live Video with
most of the information in it.
You can watch it HERE, if
you would like to see my Video Debut.

This will be a great opportunity 
to use those scraps or
the fabric stash that you have 
laying around in your 
sewing room.


Here are my Riley Blake scraps that 
I plan to use to accompany this
new beautiful set of fat quarters of
Bee Basics by Lori Holt.
There are 30 fat quarters
and a panel in this set. 
(I guess I need a few greens to add to my stash)
You can find the fat quarter bundle at


Thank you to Riley Blake for providing me

with this lovely Outdoors Wood Grain Cream
from The Great Outdoors line
to be used for the background of my quilt.
If you want all of your background to be the 
same, you will need 4 yards of fabric.
There are a few shops that
carry this color -

I also recommend for the applique 
block that you pick up some brown
and green threads to coordinate with your fabrics
to applique stitch around the design.  
We will be using other colors as well, 
but these we will use the most.

You can find a huge array of
Aurifil threads at 
and Craftsy.

And of course since we are doing some
applique work, you will
need sewable fusible adhesive.
    I only use HeatnBond Lite
or if you dislike tracing all of
your pieces
you will fall in love with these
They work absolutely wonderful 
for smaller pieces. 

I also forgot to mention 
what is the best way to 
store those finished blocks.
I love to store my BOM blocks in
a plastic scrapbook paper case
like this one.


I picked this one up
at my local Michael's store 
for less than $5.
It is a great way to store your blocks
for the entire year, and 
not worry where you last saw it.
(Maybe, I am the only one with that problem)


I am overjoyed that you are
planning to join us for the 3rd Annual
Sew Incredibly Crazy and Friends Block of the Month.

There is no sign-up for this
Block of the Month.
The blocks are absolutely free
for the month that they have been released.
After that, there will be a small fee.
Here is the full schedule.

If you would like to join our Facebook group, 
please stop in HERE.


 We can't wait for all the fun to begin!

Textured BoHo Cowl

I found the prettiest pattern
for a crocheted cowl 

This is the eighth one that I have 
made over the last month.
They made such great Christmas 
gifts.


This one has to be my favorite.
I chose to make this one from Alpaca yarn.
I picked it up on Craftsy at their
year end clearance.
It was a great deal and I 
couldn't pass it up.
The wood buttons I found over at 
my local craft store.


The color of the yarn is so rich and beautiful.
I love all the little fibers that seem to 
find their way out of the stitches.
It gives it such a lovely texture.


I picked up 4 skeins, but only needed
2, so I guess I can make another
to give as a gift.

The pattern for this cowl is free over at 
She has some beautiful patterns on
her blog.

December's Aurifil DOM Reboot Block

Here is the December's Aurifil
block that was
re-released for 2017.


The first time that they had
this BOM was in 2012.
I loved the cute blocks.
This last one was such a 
pleasure to stitch up.



I still have two blocks that
I have to stitch up 
to be able to put the quilt
all together.


I love her little braids 
flapping in the wind.
I imagine this would be me 
trying to ski after being off the
slopes for too long.

Here are the rest of the blocks 
that I have finished.



You can find the pattern to all 
these cuties HERE.
