January was gone in a flash… We are already one month into 2017, and I have the first month of Cabin Fever Done!

Cabin Fever Block of the Month Quilt Pattern

The block design in the center is actually the ‘block’ of the month.  The Star is part of the top design.  You will notice I’m mixing solids and prints.  I’m using some Anna Maria Horner fabrics from her True Colors line.

True Colors Fabric bundle Anna Maria Horner

I have a couple bundles in my shop, plus some other supplies that are helpful for this BOM project. If the bundles are gone, email me @ rebeccamaedesigns@gmail.com and I’ll update you on availability when I get more in stock.


I’m using the prints for the corner squares, background and border.  I will mix the left over scraps of prints and solids into my monthly block.

The star points will be made from my stash of solids with one coordinating print.

For my Star Background (Fabric B) I’m using True Colors Filigree Coral ~ it’s so bright and fun!

And for my border (fabric F) I’m using this gorgeous dark version of Filigree, called dusk!

You can find both of these fabrics sold by the half yard HERE.


Fat Quarter Bundle

6 1/2″ ruler ~ These are great for squaring up blocks so they are all the same size.

Vellum Paper ~ Sometimes I use regular copy paper (shhh!) but it does tend to shrink when ironed.  I have a few packs of this paper if you want to try it.  Either way, use a 6 1/2″ ruler to trim so you know all your blocks are the same size.

Flat head pins ~ These pins (or any flat head pins) are super helpful keeping everything flat when paper piecing.


Thanks for Following!
