Reene has decided that it would be fun to revisit the block of the month that she first designed for Quilt Now magazine in 2014. "From Nellie, with love" is a technique building medallion quilt which features 12 different techniques. You can read more about the techniques here.
Each month a new PDF pattern will be released in our Payhip store. The pattern includes all the instructions to make the block of the month and a bonus project that can be made using the block if you don't fancy making the whole quilt.
There are detailed step-by-step photos which make this block of the month suitable for all abilities.
Each monthly instalment costs £2.00 which we think is a real bargain and we hope you'll agree! As there is no requirement to pay up front for the whole programme you can dip in and out, if you choose, when a particular technique appeals to you. We'll post on the blog each month when the block pattern is ready for purchase so if you're not already signed up to our blog or newsletter now is the time to do it.
We will also have a limited number of fabric kits available for each month in our webshop if you would like to take the pain out of choosing fabrics for your quilt. Fabric kits cost £12.00 and include postage in the UK (International postage will be extra).
There are two kit options to choose from:
Option 1 - Low volume and bright prints (from Reene's stash) for a very scrappy version similar to the original quilt.
Option 2 - Navy background print (from Paperie by Amy Sinibaldi) and bright solids.
Reene will be stitching along with Option 2 this year so you'll be able to see her progress on the blog throughout the year.
