Rise & Shine with our Cream & Sugar Block of the Month – New BOM alert!

There’s nothing like a sampler quilt first thing in the morning, don’t you agree? We can’t enough of the soft creams and rich browns in It’s Sew Emma’s Cream & Sugar quilt!

Sign up for our Cream & Sugar BOM to make your mornings easy breezy! This wonderful BOM includes everything you need to get started, including the Cream & Sugar Block of the Month Book and over 16 yards of Sonoma fabric to complete the 80.5″ square quilt. Our 12-month BOM starts in April, so reserve your spot today!

We also have a matching backing set available separately.

It’s Sew Emma’s Cream & Sugar BOM Book is available to pre-order now with the book releasing in March! The book includes full-color detailed instructions on making all 18 blocks and finishing up the 80.5″ square quilt. Pre-order your copy today!

Check out this teaser YouTube video for the Cream & Sugar Quilt!

The Cream & Sugar quilt was inspired by Edyta Sitar’s upcoming collection, Sonoma, and its extra sweet take on low volume neutrals. Using soft creams and browns, this collection is certain to make your day!



  1. Does the book give total yardage needed, such as the background? I bought a BOM book before and had to figure the total yardage. Amounts were only given for each block. Kind of frustrating. That is a beautiful quilt. Just would like total yardage, at least for background fabric.

  2. I am curious as to why this kit contains over 16 yards of fabric for an 80.5×80.5” quilt. This former math teacher figures that there is either a tremendous amount of waste or this is enough fabric to make multiple quilts. (Quilt size is less than 6500 sq inches, but 16 yards of fabric is over 23,000 sq inches of fabric). I’d like to sign up for this but I don’t want to purchase an excessive amount of fabric.

    1. Rhonda, rather than a full quilt kit, this is a block of the month club. The monthly shipments include what is needed for that month’s blocks, plus Fat Quarter Shop is always generous in fabric requirements and includes a few extra inches of each fabric in case of miscuts. Over several months, the extra inches will add up. As an alternative, you could purchase the book and order exactly the amount of yardage listed inside. Hope this helps!

    1. Yes, Fat Quarter Shop is very generous in their block of the months shipments. I say Hooray for Fat Quarter Shop, we love you guys!!!!!!!

  3. Signed up and super psyched! As soon as I wrap up the Sew In Love BOM I will be attacking this one. Love this quilt!

  4. I just received the book of patterns. While I do not particularly like the browns and creams, I plan on using the Granny Chic fabric to make a quilt using the book patterns. I am also planning to use the basket quilt block in a complete basket quilt for a Christmas present this year.

  5. Is the book included when signing up for the block of the month or does it need to be ordered separately? This question is in reference to the Cream and Sugar BOM

    1. Hi Marge, the Block of the Month club does indeed include the book, so please don’t order the book if you signed up for the BOM.

  6. I just ordered the Cream & Sugar BOM and can’t wait to receive the first shipment. I would like to add an outer border. How do I calculate how much yardage to order? Plus, I would need more of the backing fabric. Thank you.
