2023 Block of the Month; Starlight Sparkler Quilt Pattern | Digital PDF Pattern


What you Get!

UPDATE: The quilt along is now over, but you can still get the pattern. When you purchase, you'll receive all the blocks and assembly instructions to complete the quilt.


Add a little "sparkle" to your year by participating in the 2023 Polka Dot Chair Block of the Month program. 


This year we're making the Starlight Sparkler Quilt! It's a sampler quilt pattern that features ten different quilt blocks. Each of the blocks is created twice, so there are twenty different blocks in the quilt. The blocks are all 10" finished.


This is the 5th year we've offered a Block of the Month quilt! 


THIS IS A ONE TIME PURCHASE, there is NO monthly fee. 


Make a Quilt One Step at a Time!

Create a Sampler 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 blocks. You will get one quilt block pattern emailed to you each month. 

Build your Quilting Skills!

The blocks start very simple and grow in detail as the year progresses. That way, as your piecing skills improve, you can more confidently tackle the blocks with more details or smaller pieces.


Be sure to follow us on Instagram (@polkadotchair) as we will also share tips for the blocks throughout the year. 

Quilt Size:

The quilt measures approximately 70" x 90" when finished. 


Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions:



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 our website's "block delivery" system. 

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.
