Join us on a TQS exclusive 12-month journey into the land of childhood memory with a charming quilt designed especially for TQS by internationally-known Australian designer Lynette Anderson. Lynette combines simple, unpretentious folk art style appliqué motifs with patchwork blocks for a quilt that will be lots of fun to make. Each month we will provide photos, detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, and full-size patterns. We will once again be offering monthly companion teaching videos as well. It all makes for a year of fun and learning!

What kind of stiff plastic packing tape? I am having trouble imagining how that works.

I mean the stiff stuff that's stapled round boxes www.rgbstock.com/bigphoto/mslsewg/wrapped,+sealed+and+bound

Perhaps it's a uk thing. I cut long strips that hold the shape and you use as pressing bar as lynette did.

These little 9-patches for the 1/2 size version...Finished size seems to be 1 3/4". Do I need to make my seam allowance 1/8" to achieve this? Having trouble making it work. The Billie Lauder method doesn't work for me because the 1/4" seam allowance makes them too small. Any help greatly appreciated.

Rita, I'm so sorry I haven't been able to post earlier. The half size 9 patch finished must be 1-1/2 inch. From raw edge to raw edge, they will be 2". Each of the squares have to be cut 1" which includes a 1/4 " seem allowance.
Hope that helps.

For anybody who is interested in doing needle-turn applique for this BOM and doesn't know how - here are three short videos from Becky Goldsmith that might help. We had all of these last year on TQS so some of you might have seen them already. I think they are really clear demos.







Looking forward to seeing the different combinations people come up with for this BOM.

I can't remember ever buying a whole kit. A pattern, perhaps, but never a whole kit. I am now in the process of choosing the fabric for the 2015 BOM. I'm going slightly crazy with changing my mind after every choice becomes 'final'...then I see/find another fabric that would go oh, so much better. Then I've thought, well, 'make two...one for this colourway, one for that colourway. I am determined to use my stash. Now I understand why people buy kits - all the mind blowing thinking is done for you. But I like to choose my own colours usually. Gosh, either that or I am really rebellious!

Oh dear. I think I need some chocolate - go ahead, help yourselves. Follow the trail.

I'm going through the same thing, Terrie. Determined to use my stash, have a colorway in mind, but keep switching ideas up (all from the stash). Unlike you, though, it never crossed my mind to do two of them! :blink: Then I would be changing my mind on the fabrics for two quilts! Do you really think chocolat would help? :unsure:

PS I've never purchased a kit either...

Sorry, so confused by the Group concept. Forum worked so well last year but not sure why/how to get involved in the group. When I go to it now under TQS Community it seems disjointed. Guess I'll stick with the forum for now as long as Andree's half size info is there. If it's on the Group I have no idea how to join.

Miam! Chocolate!

Yeah! looks like this post got moved to it's own category (BOM2015). I know now where to post the half size measurements! B)
