Monkey Business BOM – Block #12
And here we are, starting the last month of the year. It doesn’t really feel like December yet, especially with this warm and rainy weather. Not that it gets really cold here, compared to most parts of Canada, but still, it is too warm even by our standards. Now that gardening is pretty much on hold, I missed it and started a batch of radishes under grow lights. And of course I have been drawing a lot, and next year’s BOM seems to be right on track for a start on January 1. I am not promising anything yet but if nothing comes up unexpectedly, we should be good.
As for our Monkey friend, he is relaxing in a hammock under a palm tree today, not a care in the world. This was actually one of the earliest blocks I drew but then I decided it would make a great last block for this BOM. And I have also said that Block #12 would contain the finishing instructions but I have changed my mind about that. They are now available as an individual pattern with no charge, so make sure you download two patterns below. Block #12 will be free until the end of the month and move over to the pattern store in January. The finishing instructions will always be free. They are very simple, just sashing and one outer border, and I will use the same layout and measurements for next year’s BOM, so I can concentrate on the fun part (designing the blocks) and won’t have to worry about doing the math and double checking it seventeen times.
EDIT: The year is over, a new BOM has started, and block #12 has moved to the pattern store and is now available for purchase if you missed the free download. I have also created special pricing bundles again for blocks 10, 11 & 12 and also for blocks 7-12, in case you missed a whole bunch. The full Monkey Business pattern is also available for purchase now for those who missed most or all of the free blocks. If you just need the finishing instructions, they are still available for free download.
EDIT: Individual blocks and pattern bundles are no longer available but the full pattern can still be found in the pattern store, both in English/Imperial and German/Metric. The finishing instructions are also still available for free download.
