Add a little "sparkle" to your year by participating in the 2022 Polka Dot Chair Block of the Month program.
This is the 4th year that we've offered a Block of the Month quilt! Our theme this year is "Sparkle" because I think we all could use a bit of sparkly fun this upcoming year!
What you Get!
Make a Quilt One Step at a Time!
Create a quilt slowly throughout the year. It's a great way to tackle a big project without becoming overwhelmed. Simply set aside time for yourself each month to construct your block.
Build your Quilting Skills!
The blocks start out very simple and grow in detail as the year goes on. That way as your piecing skills improves, you are able to more confidently tackle the blocks with more details or smaller pieces.
Help Along the Way!
Beginning with block one, there will be a few videos to walk you through piecing the blocks. Since many of the blocks use similar construction techniques, there will not be a video each month, but each time a new technique is introduced.
Be sure to follow us on Instagram (@polkadotchair) as we will be sharing tips for the blocks throughout the year as well.
Please Read Carefully!

How it Works:
Each month you will receive a PDF via email with ONE block pattern. With the exception of block 1 (which will be emailed on January 21st), Patterns will be emailed on the 5th of the month before midnight Eastern time.
Create one block a month from the pattern for 10 months. On the 11th month, you will receive the pattern for the alternate blocks and finishing instructions.
The quilt measures approximately 58" x 72" when finished.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is this a one-time fee or a per-month fee?
A: It's a ONE-time fee. There are no other fees throughout the year.
Q: Can I get the blocks early?
A: No, we do not offer the blocks early. There are no exceptions. We are sewing this quilt along WITH you and need adequate time to test the blocks before they are sent to you each month.
Q: What fabric did you use for your example quilt?
A: Sparkler by Melissa Mortenson for Riley Blake Designs. The exact colors are listed in the fabric requirements.
Q: Do I have to use Sparkler Fabric?
A: Nope! Use whatever you'd like. All the block instructions will refer to the colors in the example quilt. If you sew it with other fabrics, I suggest making a "key" with fabric swaps.
Q: If I'm outside of the USA how do I purchase the pattern?
A: Please use our Etsy shop (etsy.com/shop/polkadotchair) to purchase, they handle all of the international tax stuff for us. After your purchase, we will add you to the "block delivery" system on our website.
Q: Can I still get the previous year's Block of the Month Pattern?
A: Yes, the completed patterns are for sale in our shop.
