Look At What I found Under the Tree!

Look at what I found under the tree!

  • ~Garden Sunshine BOM fabric kits~

Garden Sunshine is a 12 month BOM series. We will work on our piecing skills along with some applique. An embroidery version will also be presented! It will be an adorable scrappy sampler quilt. I'm really excited about this quilt, I'm in love with how bright and cheerful it is. It's done in 1030's reproduction fabric which I LOVE!!! I just love the freshness of the colors and the retro feel. They'll be perfect for this scrappy style quilt. Inspired by my love of gardening... it'll be a wonderful project to work on. I hope that you are able to join me.

I have fabric kits available for both the quilt blocks and the applique pieces. I split these up into two kits to give you more flexibility. That way if you want to get the fabric kit alone for the blocks and rummage thru your stash for the applique bits, you can. Also if you want to embroider the designs instead of applique, then all you need is the fabric kit for the blocks. I did not include the background fabric, I'm leaving that up to you. You will need 4 yards of a white, cream or some sort of neutral background fabric. I'm using white.

This block of the month will be run the same as in past years. The pattern section will be available for free the month that it is out. The first of the month when a new pattern comes out, the old month's pattern is still available for a small $2.99 fee. I do this to keep everyone motivated to keep working on their blocks each month. I suggest downloading and printing you pattern each month and putting it in a folder if you aren't planning on working on it right away. Let me let you know about some of the blocks... they are all fun! Some months you will have two blocks to make, sometimes only one. Some months there will be no applique or embroidery, other months there is. The logo gives you an idea of the design a little bit. 

If you would like to post the button for the BOM on your website or blog to spread the word. Please grab the image above and link it to my blog. Let's spread the word! The more the merrier!

  2. This looks like it could be lots of fun. And I have a huge stash of 30s fabrics.

  3. I am getting excited about the new BOM.

  4. I have never done a BOM before, one kit is just blocks each month with 1930 materials and is the other kit all embroidered squares?
