Jardin de Lavande Block of the Month Reservation Fee
Join me and my lovely friend Andrea from the Willow Cottage Quilt Company to make the Jardin de Lavande Sampler, a quilt that journeys through the gardens of la belle France to the lavender fields of Provence…
The Midsummer Sampler Block of the Month programme will run for ten months, from October 2020 until July 2021. Each month you will receive everything you need to make one of eight original sampler blocks along with border blocks and a beautiful pieced monogram. In month ten we will be assembling our quilt and preparing our binding (you will need to supply your own backing and batting).
The Jardin de Lavande blocks are conventionally machine pieced and suitable for intermediate sewists. I will be sharing my favourite techniques to add special details to each one, including piecing angles, adding trims and simple embroidery and creating bias tape. I will be including all the little extras you will need* and a few lovely surprises, just for you.
Your quilt will finish at approximately 60" square and we will be sewing with Fat Eighth Bundles of Tilda's eagerly awaited twin collections: Maple Farm and Tiny Farm.
Payments for the Block of the Month programme will be made by PayPal Subscription and will cost £19.50 each month plus postage (postage will be £1.50 within the UK, £4 to Europe and £5.25 to Australia/New Zealand). If you are purchasing in North America please reference the listing in Andrea's shop, here.
Please note that there are limited places available for the Block of the Month. The reservation fee is non-refundable and commits you to participating in the ten month programme.
* Kits will include matching embroidery floss and any trims and notions required. In addition to your sewing machine you will need piecing thread - I recommend Aurifil 50 wt in Off White (2021) - your favourite embroidery needle and a glue pen for basting.
