Vice Versa Block of the Month Club: January Block

Jan 3, 2014

The big day has finally arrived!  I am extremely excited to kick off the Vice Versa Block of the Month Club with you today.  Today, the January Block Pattern for Vice Versa is available to begin a year of fun!

**A yearly subscription to Vice Versa is available here**
When you purchase a subscription, an Introduction - Guide to Choosing Fabric AND all the current block patterns to date will be emailed immediately upon payment.

**Or, you can purchase each block individually here .** 

Feel free to join in the fun with us anytime throughout the year.  For all the details on Vice Versa, go here.
The Shoofly block is such a classic block.  I love it's clean simplicity.  It doesn't need anything fancy - just some great fabric to show off it's form.  This year, Vice Versa blocks will increase in complexity with each month.  I planned things this way so beginners can grow while making the quilt.  So for January, we are starting off nice and easy.  

Below is the traditional block Block [A].  

And it's inverse Block [B].  Aren't they pretty?
Fabric is Pure Elements by Art Gallery Fabrics for my version of the BOM.

Please add your blocks to the flickr group for Vice Versa when you get a chance.  Many of you have been posting color inspiration photos and fabric selections.  They look wonderful!  It will be fun to watch this quilt come together in so many different colorways!
Subscribers:  If you didn't receive your pattern by email this morning:

  • Please make sure you are checking your email for your paypal email address.  Unless you have written me a note asking to change this, the email you used to pay is where your patterns will be sent.
  • Please check your spam folder for the pattern.
  • If you still have not received the pattern, please send me an email [] with your name, paypal email address, and -your order number (from your receipt email).  Together we will get it sorted out!

  1. I'm so excited to get started but I just received the last of my fabric and realized I was way to monochromatic, so I just ordered a replacement color. Hopefully it will look right so I can get cuttin'!

  2. Hooray! Your BOM club looks like so much fun! Can't wait to get started!

  3. I was so happy to see the first block in my email! I can't wait to get started on this one!

  4. Yippee - I just purchased January's block yesterday and cut out all my pieces. Should have the blocks completed soon and will post the photos to flickr and on my blog. Thanks! BTW, I realized that I only purchased the Jan block. Is there a way to apply the 1.50 towards the full subscription? If not, no worries! thanks for this fun BOM!

    1. Hi! Yes, I can apply your $1.50 towards the subscription - no problem! Email me [] personally so we can work it out!

  5. I was struggling with the whole color pallette thing - since choosing colors is not my strength. I found what I think is a really good solution - I went to the fabric store and found a multi-colored fabric I liked, then used that fabric to choose my five solids. I'm excited to get started!
