Okay, nobody panic - but this month, we’re adding a new “skill” to the Veggie Patch! And using up even tinier bits of scraps! Are you ready for this?

The Peas in a Pod block uses snowball blocks in addition to the usual half square triangles and scrappy squares. Don’t worry - they’re tiny and easy! The biggest thing to remember is contrast - the dark green scraps should be much darker than the light green scraps to make the peas pop out of the pod. Or in the pod. You know what I mean.
Get the printer-friendly instructions here! The block will be free for a month until the next one posts - but don’t be too upset if you miss one. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Hopatong Community Garden, so you’ll be helping a great cause run by one of my good friends.
If you’re joining me in these blocks, please use #veggiepatchquilt on Instagram or comment here so I can find your blog!
And so… Did anyone else work on (or start) a BOM? Or a project broken into more manageable monthly pieces? Or a few blocks for someone else’s charity project? Link up here or at What a Hoot!
