We are excited to be one of the exclusive quilt shops offering Jen Kingwell’s newest BOM, Golden Days. Jen loves, loves, loves singer Tom Jones. If you participated in our last BOM, Delilah, you know that the quilt was named after one of her favorite Tom Jones’ hits. She has continued that theme by naming this BOM from another of Tom’s songs. From the song titled Love and Blessings, the lyrics; “Golden days” and amber sunsets.
Golden Days will include a combination of pieced and appliquéd blocks. Each month you will receive a fabric kit along with either the acrylic templates for cutting out your shapes for the pieced block or mylar templates for cutting out the shapes for the appliqué blocks. The mylar template shapes for the appliqué blocks are a new feature for Jen’s BOM program. The acrylic templates include seam allowances. The mylar templates do not include seam allowances. So, depending on your preferred method of appliqué, you may need to add the seam allowance to the shape.
“Golden Days” will start April 1, 2018 and will run for 12 months. The cost of the monthly kit will be $41.99 to $50.00. The monthly cost will vary depending on the amount of fabric included and the particular template(s) required for each block.
Last fall when Jen was our guest instructor she was working on the blocks for this quilt. Jen is known for her eclectic style of color and texture in her fabric selections. We are anxiously awaiting Jen’s latest MODA fabric line, Beach Road, to continue this tradition with “Golden Days”. You can stop by the shop to see samples of Beach Road and the first block of Golden Days.
In the first BOM packet Jen has included detailed instructions for using the acrylic and mylar templates. And, instructions for either hand or machine piecing. Numerous photographs are included to help you understand her techniques.
Jen has also set up a private Facebook group where participants of “Golden Days” can share their blocks and additional information for this BOM. The information for joining the Facebook group is included in the first month’s packet of information.
We anticipate that our “Golden Days” BOM will sell out quickly. Don’t miss out on this exclusive Jen Kingwell design. Please give us a call to reserve your spot 402.332.4178.
