Read more about Carol Hopkins' New "It's Not A Square" BOM Program:

What began as a year-long block exchange between Carol Hopkins and her quilting friends has developed into a beautiful and unique 12-Month BOM quilt called "It's Not a Square." As Carol explains it:

"The unique feature of these blocks was that they weren't square - they finished at 4" x 5". We recreated some classic blocks and also designed more than 50 original blocks that no one has ever seen before. We ended up with 182 different blocks. WE developed a book containing instructions for making all of the blocks. It's called "The 4" x 5" Quilt Block Anthology: 182 Blocks for Reproduction Fabrics" by Carol Hopkins and Linda M. Koenig." (Martingale, March 2017)
