Beth Ferrier has designed a new quilt for this year's block of the month program. This year's is called Now and Forever.
Even if you don't want to make the whole quilt - it always has piecing and applique - I still recommend that you make the blocks using her directions. You'll learn new nifty ways to make the blocks and hopefully you can incorporate her techniques into other quilts that you make. Each block is available until the 15th of the month, and then the next block is up. So be sure to download it every month. If you miss downloading a month, you can substitute another block or purchase the old one from Beth.
I've done a couple of her quilts - Moondance and Lillibet's Garden. They are both wonderful quilts, even though I haven't finished them yet. I'm slow on the applique parts.
