I love a Block of the Month – I mean, I REALLY love them. I will confess to having several on the go at the moment, and one of them is Girl’s Day Out. I saw this advertised on the Villavin Crafts Facebook page, and I knew at once that I wanted to do it.…

Some of you will be familiar with the Block of the Month (or BOM), and others will not be. For quite a few years I didn’t give them any thought at all, but about 10 years ago I saw a quilt that I liked and wanted to make. Since then I have subscribed to 12…
