New Block of the Month Program Starting in June

New Block of the Month Program

I am designing a new Block of the Month Program for Pioneer Patchwork at Narellan.

The program will run over a 14 month period commencing in June 2013.

The quilt will consist of (61) 6" finished blocks: 9 blocks will be hexagon flowers appliqued onto a background square; 4 blocks will have different Rose of Sharon applique flowers and 48 blocks will be different machine pieced sampler blocks.

Month 1 will consist of three metres of background fabric; 3 fat eighths of different fabrics; papers for hexagon blocks and detailed instructions for four pieced blocks.

Months 2 -14 will consist of 3 fat eighths and detailed instructions for four blocks.

The cost for Month 1 will be $60 Australian and thereafter the cost will be $20 per month debited from a credit card account each month.  Postage charges will be additional to this.

There will be two colour options to choose from: traditional reproductions or beautiful brights.

The background fabric for the reproduction option will be a medium value Primitive Muslin from Moda fabrics or equivalent.  

Here is a photo of the reproduction blocks made so far.  The background is a soft beige and the blocks will be made in a wide variety of pink, blue, brown, green and gold.

The background fabric for the bright option will be either a black Muslin Mate or white Muslin Mate from Moda.  You will need to specify colour choice of background at the time of registration.

These are the bright blocks.  The top ones are made with the black background and the bottom with the white background.  The bright colours are the same for the pieced blocks.  I love both of them - can't decide which background I like the most.

Month 14 will include detailed instructions for setting the 61 blocks on point with sashing strips in between and cornerstone squares.  The completed quilt will measure approximately 82 inches square with borders.

If you are interested in starting this fun Block of the Month program, please phone the shop on 02 4647 3555 with your credit card details to register.
