The Blooming Blossoms 2018 Block Of The Month. A NEW *exclusive* English Paper Piecing BOM programme designed by Jessie Fincham for Sew and Quilt. £15.25/Month + Postage
What is a Block Of The Month (BOM) and how does it work?
Once you sign-up below for the 2018 Blooming Blossom Quilt BOM, you will be joining our programme starting in January - December 2018. Each month we send you a special box that will feel like you are opening up a lovely gift! It will include fabrics, paper templates and instructions to make your own Blooming Blossoms quilt.
How much is the BOM club?
For all UK and EU residents the price is £15.25/month + Postage, for 12 months. For International and European (outside EU zone) the price is £12.75/month (price excludes VAT) + Postage, for 12 months.
What's included in my monthly BOM kit?
FABRIC: Each month's kit is carefully chosen and curated by Jessie Fincham. We will be using a selection of Liberty Tana Lawns (including lots of gorgeous prints from the SS18 collections!) for the Blossom block centre's and soft white's and creams for the outer Blossoms to give a cohesive balance. Our favourite AGF Pure Elements premium cotton will be used in all joining blocks and sections in the dark navy colour-way as shown. Fabrics are conveniently pre-cut into strips ready for you to sub-cut as per our instructions.
PAPER PIECES: Cut and packaged by us in-house, our excellent quality, 100% recycled paper templates will be sent to you in varying amounts each month to make up the set number of blocks. No need to re-use we provide you with enough for the whole quilt top!
WRITTEN INSTRUCTION SHEETS: A monthly instruction sheet which includes fabric swatches for you to match up with your kit. Easy to read cutting instructions, quilt block diagrams and assembly diagrams. I will also send out a periodic BOM newsletter via email, which includes any extra details that need to be covered and details fussy-cutting photographs where required.
Tell me more about the Blooming Blossom quilt?
The quilt top will measure approximately 45" x 61". Based on a 5 x 7 block layout. As a guide you will average making 3 Blossom blocks per month, plus joining blocks and connectors so I think it will be a very manageable quilt for the year. You will make up 3 variations of the Blossom blocks (A, B and C), which will be alternated throughout the quilt.
I came up the design of these blocks a few years ago when playing around with our paper pieces, (you might spot one in an old instagram post of mine!) but appliqued them to a backing - it only occurred to me this year that I could connect them - which swiftly led to a new quilt idea, then I was officially hooked! ~ Jessie
Do you offer acrylic cutting templates for the quilt?
We do! We have a 5-piece acrylic template set available and will include this in your first box to save you on postage. We've also reduced the price for the set! The retail price is £21.65 and we have it available to all new BOM members for £18.40 - saving you 15% off.
I'm new to English Paper Piecing, could I do this?
Difficulty: Confident beginner. Assumes a basic knowledge of the English Paper Piecing technique. (I have a very detailed tutorial on my blog if you need guidance). Once you have this practised you are good to go! The instructions will be clear, and once you've done a couple of months you will understand the format and you should speed up with practise. It's a manageable size and we've done the hard work of breaking the pattern down into sections and providing you with the correct strips for you to simply subcut. We also have a friendly private Facebook group with 250+ members who post photo's of their BOM quilts, offer advice and spur each other for motivation each month!
