2017 BLOCK OF THE MONTH
BOM 2017 SIGN UPS ARE CLOSED; THE PROGRAM IS FULL.
2017 will be a year to celebrate. It will mark the last phase of my treatment, a road to recovery and my 13th Block of the Month (BOM) program. For this years program I couldn’t think of anything more fitting than to be surrounded by all the things I love - hand dyed wools, bright bold colors, embroidery threads and vases brimming with flowers. And to mark the 13th year… black…
Size: 43" Square
Join me for a year of creative embroidery where we will create interest in each block by piecing or layering our backgrounds with fabrics and stitchery. Our garden of vases will be filled with flowers, leaves and berries appliquéd in a multitude of mediums, then enhanced with embroidery in a vast array of fibers differing in type and weight. Select vases will include optional mystery stitchery to enhance each garden and challenge us creatively.
Fresh Cut will be a 12 month program and the quilt will be approximately 43" square. Each month you will receive a kit and pattern. The kit may include items such as: hand dyed wools and velvets, cotton and textural fabrics, ribbons and embellishing threads.
The kits for January, February and March will include additional embroidery threads so we have a nice stash to play with throughout the year. The program will also include a hand picked backing, binding and label.
Please note that I reserve the right to make changes to the design (above sketch) as I work through my creative process throughout the year.
All kits are hand-dyed to our specifications. No substitutions of kit contents will be made.
As a requirement for the BOM program, you will need to have my book CREATIVE STITCHING. Directions for the stitches used each month will be referenced by page numbers from this book. New stitches not found in the book will be illustrated in your monthly pattern. Cost of the book is $32.
In addition to each monthly kit, you will need various colors of wool and cotton threads for applique. These threads will be optional additions to your BOM packages. More details on threads will be discussed in a welcome newsletter for those who sign up for the program.
There is a $25 non-refundable registration fee to join my 2017 BOM program. This fee will NOT be used as a credit for your first month's kit; nor will it be returned should you have to cancel out of the program.
