Quilt Doodle BOM 2015

Quilt Doodle Doodles
I find so much enjoyment in planning a new BOM each year. This is the third one that I have planned for you. I am so excited to present this one! The quilt is a collection of all of my favorite things. There is no paper piecing in this quilt, but there will be  machine applique and a tiny little bit of embroidery.  The blocks are what you expect from Quilt Doodle Designs.... they are fun applique patterns. I will have a tutorial posted on the Doodle Blog along with links to the pattern included each month.  The monthly patterns will be FREE during the month that they are announced, after that they will be available for a small fee. In December we will piece the sections together and  put on borders and finishing touches. I'm letting you in on the quilts layout (see below)... see all of the blank spaces. Oh, I love blank areas to fill up with some fun applique. Don't fret if you are new to applique... this will be a fun quilt to work on and I will help you along with some tips...

Now here's the fun part, picking out the fabric... You can make this quilt scrappy by using fabric from your stash. You will need the 5 yards of cream background fabric for sure if you do it scrappy. You can 'wing' the rest if you want to bust your stash. Do know there are no fabric police, you can change up colors as you see fit. Have fun!

Finished measurement 57” x 82”

Small print fabric or tone on tone fabrics work best for
this quit. Yardage… is an estimate with extra added in.

5 yards background  and border– cream
1 ½ yards blue/turquoise
1 ½” yards red (binding included)

Material for applique designs- 1 fat quarter each color;
Backing – 5 yards
Dark brown or black thread for machine appliqué

 Skein DMC floss to match blue/turquoise fabric

A printable supply list can be found HERE!
