Is AnyOne Interested

in doing the 2016 sew-along to make Lori Holt's...  BLOOM quilt ?
It's a FREE pattern... & even though it was completed several years ago I just loved it...  BUT ...
this is the first chance I've had to work on it myself.
All you need to purchase is Lori Holt's BLOOM templates.
You could even use up LoTs of your scraps if you didn't want to purchase any fabric.
I'm using left over fabric from charm packs & a jelly roll in similar colours that I've had for ages...
& I will make mine larger to suit a queen size bed by simply added extra blocks or borders.
Each 81/2 inch block is appliqued using either fusible OR needle turn by hand OR machine method.
You get to choose the method you like to use.


Soooo... does anyone want to join me in January 2019 ? ...
Think of it as a FuN  encourage-along  really, but at the end of say 6 months we will have a really sweet quilt to show for our efforts.
FYI... You can read all about the 2016 sew-along HeRe.

Simply leave a comment or email me if you are interested... then start gathering your supplies.

I do love Lori Holt. However, I am working on Quilty Fun that I purchased a very long time ago and finally decided to start it a few months ago. I think I only have 6 rows completed so far. There are so so so many little pieces! Hopefully I can get it finished this year. I will enjoy watching your progress though.

It looks a great project. I will look into how I can get the templates in the UK and might just join you. Six months is a good time too. :)

This looks fun, but is there anywhere in Australia you can get the templates, do you know? I found them at the Fat Quarter Shop, but they want $25 (US) for postage.
