We are pleased to announce the start of a new appliqué block of the month program. For those of you that enjoy appliqué and reproduction fabrics; you will want to join us for our newest BOM (block of the month) program.
The pattern booklet we are using is by Jo Morton, her recently released “Jo’s Floral Album”. Jo’s pattern is her updated version of Anna’s Blue Baskets designed years ago. The 12 inch finished blocks feature beautiful blossoms, twining vines, luscious berries and other motifs that define traditional album quilts. The finished quilt is 57 1/2″ x 57 1/2″.
Included in the pattern booklet are Jo’s student-tested instructions for back-basting appliqué (no freezer paper or templates needed). Discover how Jo achieves appliqué perfection. Or, use your favorite appliqué method to complete each block. Suzanne, our machine appliqué extraordinare, will be making the shop sample using her invisible machine appliqué method. She has completed the first block and it is stunning.
This will be a 9-month program. Each month you will receive the Quilted Moose curated fabric kit required for stitching the block. We are trying to replicate each block with as many of Jo’s reproduction fabrics as possible. But, of course, we will “Moose It Up” with our special touch. The booklet includes individual pattern sheets for each block and instructions for the construction of the completed quilt. You will need to purchase the booklet separately; $14.99. The monthly fabric kits will range from $10.99-15.99 per month plus s&h.
At this time, we do not intend to include a finishing kit of fabric for sashing or borders. We thought each of you would like to make those choices for your own unique quilt. Of course, we are available to help with the auditioning of fabrics for those final pieces in your quilt.
Please give us a call to reserve your spot, 402.332.4178. We anticipate that Jo’s Floral Album BOM will sell out quickly.
