A brand new quilting concept for me, Take a BOW. Quilt BOW block of the week quilt, designed by Karen Platt with quilting pattern, detailed instructions and guidance plus fabrics all posted to you.
We have BOM block of the month so why not quilt BOW block of the week. Most blocks are complete in around an hour, so one of a week leaves you plenty of time to do other things and also means you finish your quilt without it hanging around all year.
I have designed a very special quilt for you. It is available exclusively through me and is based on my hand dyed fabrics but with lots of options. I have kept the cost as low as possible because some BOMs are very over-priced. You’ll have the option to save on postage too by having it shipped in one go.
As soon as it is released, sign up because there will be a cut off point. The timeline at the moment looks like this
1st July 2020 release date for sign up
30 July 2020 cut off date
1st – 21 August 2020 I hand dye the fabrics specially for you. There will be colourway choices. All fabrics and pure cotton.
16 – 30 August 2020 shipping takes place.
1 September 2020 the private fb group opens for purchasers only to join.
4 September 2020 you start making your quilt. If you make one block a week, it should take you 30 weeks plus sashing, binding, backing and actual quilting. But of course you can take longer, or you could even do it in 30 days. The choice is yours.
I have designed this quilt specially with all levels of skill in mind. It is also very adaptable (suggestions in the instructions). The pattern is written with great detail and step by step photos. I have thought of all the little things that patten writers often forget.
DATE FOR YOUR DIARY
See you next week.
