2022-2023 BEBE BOLD SASHIKO BLOCK OF THE MONTH
Please register your interest for next session. Our supplies from Japan have been slowed down so we had to postpone the next session a couple of times. We will keep you updated by email once you have pre-registered
This Mystery Block of the Month is a Traditional Sashiko Tsumugi quilt with a little twist designed by Jane MacDonald
Quilt Size approximately 165cm x 190cm (65in x 75in). The quilt could quite easily be made larger if you decided to add more at the end of the program.
I have kept this quilt design quite simple to show off the 32 traditional blocks. I’ve also included some easy appliqué and method to transfer sashiko stitched shapes on the border. I felt it an important and easy skill to learn so that you will be able to transfer any sashiko pattern you like.
Included in this BOM are all the fabrics for the quilt top including the pieced border, binding, instructions, sashiko thread, sashiko needles, chaco paper and thimble.
Requirements: Backing and wadding
Pre-stencilled tsumugi cotton fabric is used to make this quilt which is 100% made in Japan.
There will be 12 mail outs. With one mail out per month which will include 3 to 4 sashiko blocks.
The monthly cost of this subscription is 22€ for customers located in France 25€/month for European Union and 26€/month for the rest of the world (shipping included)
Starts late January 2022, for a duration of 12 mail-outs. 1 set of blocks per month. The 12th and final mail out will include the border and method to put the quilt top together.
If you want to add other items such as fabric for backing and wadding to complete your quilt at the end of the program, we can add them to the final mail out. A reminder will be sent in time.
For participants located outside of France we will send out two sets of blocks at a time (in Jan, Mar, May, Jul, Sep and Nov).
Basic skills in patchwork and quilting are assumed in the instructions, a facebook group will be organised to share your journey through the making of this beautiful quilt
