Quilting BOM

Wednesday, 4 March 2009
That's Block of the Month in case you're wondering...

So I've signed up for a BOM quilt. It wasn't my fault, a friend signed up and then pointed it out on a message board I frequent and I fell hopelessly in love with it at first sight.

With what I hear you ask.

With this (you can click the image for a bigger version):

See, I said it was gorgeous.

As a Block of the Month you get 10 blocks a month - there's 225 blocks in total so it's a 2 year project (if I keep up!). There are no repeated fabrics either so I get 225 different fabrics (at least a fat eighth of each) and the finished quilt is 84" square.

It's good I like a challenge!

Luckily the friend also recommended a blog - That Quilt - whose author is currently doing the quilt and who has fantastic instructions for each block. The quilt is actually called Dear Jane and you can buy a book with it all in but the version I'm doing is called Rainbow Jane and the BOM comes with the fabrics and the appropriate sections of the book. Beware if you follow any of those links as they take you to places you can buy and sign up and I take no responsibility for your actions!

Roll on April when the first blocks arrive, I can't wait to get stuck in.

I remember hearing about the Dear Jane quilt when I first started looking into quilting (which I haven't actually done any of yet, but I want to!). It is just such an awesome amazing project. I can't wait to live vicariously and watch as you work on it.
