2015 Block of the Month
Tell me the story of life's lessons learned. It's a story stitched from experience, pieced from the heart and embellished with family and friendships. Search the path for the wisdom spoken in the fables and folktales of African Cloth Symbols. You will find them hidden among the animals and surrounded by nature's beauty.
I am very excited to be entering my 11th block of the month (BOM) program! The quilt will be approx. 34" x 40" in size. FOLK-TAILS will be a 12 month program. Each month you will receive a kit that will include a variety of items such as: pattern, wools, velvets, cotton fabrics, embellishing threads. This program includes quilt borders, 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 the 2015 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.
