I am super excited to announce Sign-ups for our 
2018 Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses 1930's and Feedsack Reproduction prints Block of the Month Club exclusively from Featherweight Quilt Company!

 This will be a 12 month program running January  thru December 2018. Once subscribed you will be automatically enrolled in our club program.

What you will receive:

 Each month for 12 months you will be sent a package that will include adorable and fun fabrics to create three Patchwork of the Crosses quilt blocks! You will also receive a Paper Pieces 100 piece package of 1" Honeycomb cardstock templates. We will be making 36 Patchwork of the Crosses quilt blocks using a 6x6 block layout. (We will also offer additional kits into the following year (2019) if you would to make your quilt bigger).

 Fabrics will be focused on 1930's and Feedsack Reproduction prints along with coordinated dots, stripes and solids. You will also receive a 100pc package of 1" Honeycomb cardstock templates every month. You will use 72 of the Honeycombs each month to make your POTC blocks and the remaining 28 honeycombs you will use for part of your background honeycombs. You will need to purchase 9-11 yards of background fabric( if you are making the 56 block quilt 88x90)  and 3-4 yards of connecting and cornerstone fabric of your choice separately. I recommend you purchase plenty of background and connecting/cornerstone fabric in case you decide to make a larger quilt. Each month there will be at least one additional fabric remaining from your block fabrics that can be used for the centers of the cornerstones for a fun and scrappy look. I do reserve the right to substitute fabric where necessary.

 We also have a facebook group for subscribers only where we  show and discuss layout and occasional fussy cutting options so I encourage you to join the facebook group.  ( BOM subscribers only) I will not be showing block layout every month however occasionally there will be opportunities to fussy cut and I will share these along with other tips and techniques within the facebook group. I will also be sending out periodic newsletters.

Block of the Month Skill Level:                                                         You do need to have a basic knowledge of English Paper Piecing. 
There is a Patchwork of the Crosses tutorial at the top of this blog.
 I do recommend using the 1" Honeycomb Acrylic for cutting your shapes and for occasional fussy cutting. Supplies that you will need are in my ETSY shop here:
 I also recommend a good quality thread.My favorite thread for English Paper Piecing is Aurifil 50 weight. I also recommend Foxglove Cottage Straws or Sharps Needles. I use sizes 10 or 11. If you are not familiar with these needles, I have Sample packs and vials in my ETSY shop along with Acrylics and threads. I also have the 1" Square cardstock templates and acrylics along with edge finishing pieces. I cannot combine orders from the ETSY shop with the BOM subscription.
