We just LOVE a new BOM that is quirky and cute and introduces a new technique to us. And this new Block of the Month by Anni Downs ticks all the boxes. Oh yes, and we just happened to totally fall in love with it! ;-)
Kay with the actual quilt.
We're looking at starting this BOM in February 2017 to give everyone a chance to get over the expense of Christmas.
It's a 12 month BOM and the cost will be as follows:
Month 1 (Feb 2017) : $49.50 plus postage if required. Months 2 - 12: $26.50 per month plus postage if required.
Our Block of the Month pack: Includes: The pattern pack (received in Month 1), the linen background fabric, border and binding, the felted woven wool for the appliques i.e. all the fabric to make the top of the quilt, plus the binding. Not included: vleisofix, threads, wadding and backing.
The cost for the 1st month is higher as the whole pattern arrives in a booklet form with the 1st month.
There will be an optional Aurifil thread pack for woven wool applique which will be an extra purchase if you choose to use it instead of DMC threads. I don't have details of the price for this yet but guestimate approximately $45-$50. Prices are a bit dependent on the exchange rate at present.
This is what Anni has to say about her new BOM: "This quilt has been set out as a 12 part block-of-the-month program concentrating on a whimsical journey of dreams and random thoughts. Combining linen with woven wool appliqué and stitchery, it is the perfect project for any hand sewing enthusiast! The finished size of this quilt is 48" x 50"."
Please call us to book yours now so that we can get the orders in. ps - I'm SO happy, I won the draw to do this one as the shop sample _ Kay! :-) :-) *doing my happy dance*
This stunning quilt designed by Vicki Bellino using Faye Burgos fabric will blow you away! The photo's here simply do not do it justice! Pop into the shop to see the fabric and pattern for yourself ..... but be quick as there's only two of these gorgeous Block of the Months left. (Includes English Paper Piecing.)
I've only popped one of the beautiful fabrics on this post. The Block of the month costs $76 per month and runs for six months.
And now for something a little bit special!! The most gorgeous fabric has just arrived and we will be making 8 kits for Cactus Flower. Cost is $300 for the kit (quilt top, binding and pattern). We are happy to do it as a three month BOM, starting right now. The cost as a BOM will be $100.00 per month.
The finished quilt measures 65" square. For a closer look at the fabric, pop into the shop or check out the post on the Chirp fabric here.
Please contact us as soon as possible if you would like this gorgeous quilt.
And a second gorgeous Block of the Month to kick off the New Year! Finished quilt measure approximately 70" x 70".
Expressions of interest are invited for the pattern plus fabric BOM. We will have six only sets of fabric plus pattern for the version of the quilt shown on the right. The only catch is that we don't know exactly when the fabric will be arriving. We are waiting for Riley Blake to confirm those dates and they won't be back at work for another week or so. If you are interested, please contact us as soon as possible - first in, best dressed.
Patterns Plus Fabric: The cost of the pattern plus fabric BOM will be approximately $32 per month for ten months. It will include the fabric for the quilt top plus binding but not the backing or wadding. We will be able to confirm the exact price once we have spoken to Riley Blake. :-) Six only available.
Patterns only: AND we have six sets of the patterns only. These are available as a 10 month block of the month in which you will receive the pattern only each month. The cost of the pattern each month will be $15.00 plus postage if applicable. The patterns are available immediately or as from the beginning of February. You can also purchase the full set of patterns only for $100.00 - that's a saving of $50! Yes, we've still got the Christmas spirit!
UPDATE : Block 3 has been completed and the top row of blocks stitched together!
Our new Block of the Month is this gorgeous quilt by Libby Richardson.
Our colours are slightly brighter as you can see from the fabric keys and blocks below and you are welcome to pop into the shop to see Block 1 and 2 (which have been stitched by Sue Betts) and the fabric keys to get a better idea of the colours. Further blocks will go up in the shop as they are completed.
The block backgrounds, the 2nd and last border are a beautiful lemon Shadowplay and the small orange borders and binding are shown at the bottom of the Fabric key for block 1 below. Unfortunately the lemon colour wouldn't show up on the photocopy.
The cost of Snuggle Bugs is $32 per month for ten months and includes:
All fabrics for the quilt top plus binding. Weaveline interfacing for the stitcheries. The pattern A Fabric Key is provided each month.
Threads are not included in this BOM. The size of the finished quilt is 58" x 82" which would top a single bed.
BOM starts immediately or on 1st February, whichever suits you best.
Introducing our new Block of the Month, Forget-Me-Not Garden. Most of the quilt is made with Tilda fabric and the embroidery is done using the lovely Cottage Garden Threads.
This BOM runs for 10 months and will be starting on 1 August 2015. We don't currently have a price as we have yet to cut the kits but are taking Expressions of Interest. We only have 11 sets of this gorgeous quilt so please get in fast if you are interested.
A very special thanks to Sue Betts who has made the quilt for us to display in the shop. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate it, Sue.
The quilt is in the shop overnight but will be disappearing off to Rose of Pandora's Quilting to be quilted. We'll let you know when it's back in the shop again for you all to see.
It's fun, it's cute, it's gorgeous and it's achievable! Tilda Club brings you a new project every second month which features an exclusive project by an Australian designer, and contains the Tilda fabric and accessories to make all or part of the project. Tilda club members also received a delicious teatime recipe, sneak peaks at the latest Tilda designs, and exclusive special offers.
The first two (September and November 2014) Tilda Club packs contained a gorgeous pincushion by Natalie Bird and an armchair caddy by Nikki Tervo and the packs contained everything to make these beautiful projects.
Cost : $39.90 per project plus postage if necessary (every second month). When you sign up for the Tilda Club you are signing up for a year of projects ie. six projects.
If you would like to start your Tilda Club Membership with the January 2015 Tilda Club Project, please contact us immediately as we need to order them asap. Ohh - so exciting!
This stunning new block of the month, Christmas Song, will start in May/June. Running for six months, it could be finished in time for Christmas and make a wonderful addition to your Chirstmas decor!
I admit that this quilt completely stole my heart when we saw it at the trade show in Melbourne and it's one I simply have to have. I know you all understand - some quilts are just extra special and for me, this is one of those.
Now, I don't have a price for this yet as I'm waiting for the fabric to arrive but expressions of interest are welcome. Pop your name down without any obligation to buy and we'll let you know as soon as we've worked it all out. You can decide then whether you would like it or not. _ Kay
