After the popularity and excellent feedback from our 2016 Patchwork Of The Crosses BOM club, we are opening up places for 2017 program!
What is a Block Of The Month (BOM) and how does it work?
Once you subscribe to the 2016 Lucy Boston Patchwork Of The Crosses Quilt BOM, you’ll be automatically enrolled in our club programme where you will be sent a package each month to include fabric, paper pieces, and quilt diagrams to follow and make up our own Patchwork Of The Crosses quilt.
It will be a 12-month club from January - December 2017 which will include all fabric and English Paper Pieces to sew a fabulous quilt top!
What’s in my monthly club kit?
– FABRIC: Each months kit is carefully chosen and curated by Jessie Fincham with a traditional, and slightly quirky feel. To keep things authentic we will be using a variety of Liberty Art Fabrics (Tana Lawns) just as Lucy Boston used for her original POTC quilt, alongside other beautiful quilting cottons to enhance the overall look. The premium-quality Art Gallery Elements has been especially chosen for the off-white background fabric, it has a wonderful feel to it and works perfectly alongside Liberty Tana Lawns. We are also using a lovely Tana Lawn for the sashing.
– PAPER PIECES: You will also receive the exact number of English paper pieces for the necessary sections each month, so there is no need to re-use the papers.
– PATTERN: Clear and simple to follow cutting insuctions, quilt block diagrams and assembly diagrams included in each package, so you can keep up to date each month. I also send out a periodic BOM newsletter which includes any extra details that need to be covered.
The Patchwork Of The Crosses Quilt
Bring Lucy Boston’s most popular quilt to life with our monthly quilt club! Using the traditional technique of English paper piecing you will have a completed top by the end of the year, which will have a 4 x 6 block layout. We have adjusted the finished quilt size from the original quilt to accommodate a 12-month club, which will be an achievable finish and ready to quilt and finish to your desired style. The finished quilt top will measure approximately 57-1/2″ x 86″. Each month you will always make two of the coloured blocks, and varying numbers of other blocks. We have calculated the size of fabric to make up the honeycombs and square pieces, so you will receive strips of fabric that relate to the number of pieces required each month. While Lucy Boston fussy-cuts almost all of her blocks in the original quilt, it is simply impossible to work this out on a kit basis for every block within an acheivable budget due to the fabric wastage, so we will be doing limited fussy-cutting in some blocks – with extra fabric to achieve this. The finished quilt will still be marvellous and sure to become a family heirloom to treasure for years to come!
Pattern: Original pattern designed and pieced by Lucy Boston in the 1950s, adapted for the Sew and Quilt 2016 BOM Club by Jessie Fincham.
Difficulty: Confident Beginner. Assumes basic knowledge of the English Paper Piecing technique.
