I have a new BOM for 2017. It's going to be fun to follow along. I have decided it's time to switch things up a bit and step away from a holiday quilt and make one that can be left out all year round. So for this year we will make a more traditional quilt using some 'traditional' fabrics. I will be using some 1930 reproductions for mine. It will be a bright and happy quilt that reminds me of the farm and grandma's house. To get ready for this quilt I have included a list of supplies below and the layout of the quilt. It will be a combination of piecing and applique. The base the design is a traditional Dresden plate.
Finished measurement 63” x 80”
Small print fabric work best for this quit. Yardage… is an estimate with extra added in.
6 1/2 yards cream/ white background
¾ yards green
½ yard- binding
16 different fat quarters- an assortment of colors will work best, the extra fabric left over from the Dresden design will be used for appliqué designs. The Aunt Grace line of fabric from Marcus Brothers would work nicely for this mystery quilt.
Backing – 6 yards
Heat n Bond Lite
Dark brown or black thread for machine appliqué
A new section or appliqué design will be announced the first of every month. The first section will be out January 1st. (2017) Patterns are FREE the month that they are released, as soon as the next month is released the previous patterns will still be available for a small fee… here are the links. What kind of quilt is it… I will tell you it is not a holiday quilt. There are no snowmen this time around. The appliqué designs are a collection of what you would find if you went to my grandparent's home.
