I shared the final set of instructions for the quilt top on 3rd February 2014. Despite some delays during the year I hope you like the finished quilt top. All of the instructions and patterns will remain here on the blog just as long as the blog itself remains, so there is no rush to complete your project and you can join in whenever you wish. Thank you for your patience and your encouragement!
IntroductionFIRST BLOCK: 5th JANUARY
2013 seems like it is going to become the year of BOMs. I've already signed up for a couple! But as well as taking part in others, I decided in the last few months that I would like to host one myself. I really hope you'll take a moment to have a look my BOM and I'd love it if you would join me.
Here is the first block!
And the SECOND BLOCK (2nd February)
The THIRD BLOCK will be available on 2nd March 2013!
(I will update this with a picture of the full block just as soon as I've made it - for now, here is the embroidery) - NOW UPDATED!
The FOURTH BLOCK will be available on 6th April 2013.
The FIFTH BLOCK will be available on 4th May 2013
The SIXTH BLOCK will be available on 1st June 2013
The SEVENTH BLOCK will be available on 6th July 2013
The EIGHTH BLOCK will be available around 3rd August (but I'm on holiday so it may be a bit early - or a bit late!) So it's actually available 06.12.2013!
The NINTH BLOCK....
The TENTH Block
The ELEVENTH block
The TWELFTH block
Just the CENTRE block left to go....
The plan is some embroidery, some tiny piecing, some applique and a finished wall-hanging sized quilt
Don't worry if you've never done any embroidery before - the designs are made up of small motifs so you can do just a couple of motifs at a time, and I'll be posting some tutorials as we go explaining the basic stitches.
There will be twelve blocks plus a centre and each block will reflect a month of the year and a colour from the colour wheel to give a rainbow finish. There will also be a straightforward applique section to each block and pieced section.
Of course, if tiny piecing isn't really your thing, then the size of the embroidery will fit perfectly in a 7" diameter embroidery hoop, or you could make a mini quilt for each month with a simple coloured border.
If you are thinking about taking part, I'd love it if you grabbed the button and added it to your blog
