You can choose from either purchasing the entire quilt at once, or you can purchase the first kit and I will then be in touch to purchase the rest of the patterns at monthly intervals. Please consider carefully before starting a block of the month on whether you are able to purchase all the patterns. It can be difficult for me to sell the remaining blocks of an incomplete quilt. :)
The full kit is £270 plus postage.
The BOM is £30 a month plus postage and runs for 9 months. Postage to the UK is an additional £1.50 and overseas is £5 a month.
The full quilt is a soft palette of denim blues, dark blues, creams and taupes with touches of lilac. There is a subtle circular design with a gentle self border of lighter fabrics (4 inches deep) and features fauna and flora from an autumn UK forest. This quilt measures 36 by 36" and would be ideal on the wall or to cuddle up under. The blocks are irregular sizes to give me more opportunity to incorporate larger designs. So month one will be the background only for the large stag panel, and month two will be the applique for the stag. Similar will happen later in the quilt to allow for a number of large birch trees along the left hand side. The quilt will incorporate a large stag, a fox, an owl, squirrels, and most likely a hare and a few smaller birds, possibly a hedgehog if I can squeeze him in. Lots of autumn leaves and warm colours in the applique.
Each block will cost £30 (with the last block reduced by the deposit) plus postage. Postage for the UK is £1.50 per month, and oversea is £5 per month. You can also choose to have all the blocks delivered in one go and I will only charge for postage once.
The quilt itself is in my usual style, so it is a patchwork background with raw edge applique sewn with free motion embroidery. You don't need a fancy machine to sew it but your machine needs to be able to do free motion embroidery. The pattern contains basic instructions for the patchwork. I don't go into a lot of detail on patchwork as I am assuming that you know the basics but other than the odd half square triangle, it is all pretty simple. The kits contain the fabrics, freezer paper and stabilizer you will need to complete the top. You will need to purchase your own threads but I do list every thread that I use so you can use the same if you wish to. The fabrics are supplied as a rectangle/square big enough for the shape you need. No laser cutting so you are relying on freezer paper/pencil and scissors to cut the shapes out yourself. I like this step as it is quite therapeutic. I label all the fabrics with little stickers which tell you what they are to be used for so it makes it a little easier to know which bit goes where. I use raw edge techniques and the patterns are using those instructions, but you could also use needle turn techniques, but no instructions will be given. For some of the pieces, you would need additional fabric to use needle-turn. I do give a little extra, but it might be tight on some of the smaller pieces and you would need to purchase additional fabric.
Hopefully that all makes sense, but please don't hesitate to ask if anything is unclear.

Pattern is detailed and easy to follow. All the fabric is packaged per block and comes labeled. There’s a youtube video to help with the free motion aspect. Overall wonderful quilt!
