2016 BOM pattern reveal!
I am so excited to release the 2016 Block of the Month pattern, Stars in the Night.
Next year we will break away from the center medallion structure. We will make 12 different blocks designs ranging in size from 3 inches to 18 inches square. The ranges in size adds a fun dimension to the quilt and creates the look of stars in the sky with some stars being bigger and brighter than others.
The BOM will begin in January 2016 and run through December 2016. The finished quilt will measure 108 x 120-inches, but you could easily make it two feet smaller by leaving off the borders. The fabrics I used to design the quilt are from Majestic Batiks, an Oregon-based family-owned business that works with artists in Indonesia to create handcrafted batiks using the finest cotton fabrics.
There are quilt kits available for pre-order. I will be putting in an order on September 1, 2015, for the first round of quilt kits which will be shipped on January 15, 2016 (it takes a while to get the fabric custom-made and shipped from Indonesia). I will order extra, but if you want a kit, and you want to get started at the beginning of the year, then you need to pre-order by August 31, 2015. You won’t pay until the kits are shipped, but you need to reserve your kit now in order to guarantee you’ll be in the first round of kit shipments. Just click here to pre-order yours.
The patterns will be free, as always. Use the form below to sign up to make sure you get all the 2016 QAA BOM patterns and updates.
