Welcome to Lakeside Block of the Month
Forever Friends Quilting is launching their first Block of the Month quilt soon. We are patiently awaiting the arrival of the fabric and patterns but I have had the great opportunity of being able to work with these fabrics and complete some of the months while we wait.
The pattern is called Lakeside and comprises 17 different Batik fabrics in shades of both blue and green. You will have the opportunity to purchase the entire quilt package or buy it monthly. Each month there will be all the fabric required to complete the block as well as the pattern. After 10 months you will have a stunning 95x95 quilt.
As I have said, I have been working on this quilt for awhile now at the store and have hung the blocks on the wall in the sewing room for you to see. Many of you have stopped by to have a look and talked to me about it. I am nearing the completion of block/month 7 so to complete this step, I will be taking down the samples soon and surprising everyone with a more complete look at the finished quilt.
Here are a couple of thigs that I think are important hints to help prepare you for this adventure. I strongly suggest that you purchase a box of sandwich size Ziplock type bags to put your pieces into. There are many fabrics and some of the colors are very similar and it is important to keep them separate and labeled as Fabric A etc. As well, I have been using a bobbin weight thread in the bobbin and a size 10 or 11 needle. The needle size allows for a finer hole in that batiks and the bobbin thread helps to make a fine stitching and seam line. Be sure to practice that ever important 1/4 inch seam as well.
I hope you will join me on the Lakeside adventure and if you want more information on the pricing, signing up or are just curious, drop in and talk with us, we would love to see you.
