I'm excited to announce that I'm launching a 6 month BOM (block of the month) starting in January. Not familiar with what a BOM is? Well basically you'll get instructions once a month to make a different block, so at the end of the project you'll have a mixture of different blocks to put together to make a sampler quilt. The beauty of it is that you learn new skills, blocks or techniques along the way.
This one is definitely designed to be a skill builder. So each month’s block will introduce a new skill or technique. It will include:
- Strip piecing
- Disappearing nine patch
- Log cabin
- Half Square Triangles (HSTs)
- Flying Geese
- Quarter Square Triangles (QSTs).
Often I'll show you a couple of ways to do the same thing, for example make 2 HSTs at one time or make 8 at one time. Likewise we'll cover the simple method of make flying geese and also the no waste method of making four at a time.
I've purposefully only chosen to do a six block BOM as sometimes a twelve month BOM can feel overwhelming and like it'll never end. So starting with a nice short one might be perfect for you!
It's a digital product so it will be emailed to you once a month and as such your email will be added to a mailchimp list that I will use to email you the instructions each month. Payment will be a one off payment of £18. You will choose and buy your own fabric separately.
There will be three different size options using multiples of the six blocks. Baby - 35 x 46 inches; Small Throw - 50 x 63 inches; Large Throw - 65 x 78 inches. But you could add extra blocks to make a bigger quilt to your own needs.
This is a great project for someone just at the beginning of their patchwork journey. You might have made a few quilts already. But even if you already know the techniques listed, this sampler quilt is a really appealing design and is a great way to consolidate and display your skills.
There will be an optional Facebook group where you can come to get support, share your blocks with other people making the blocks, and if I think it will be helpful, then I might pop in a video tutorial there as well.IMPORTANT INFORMATION
