Fresh Lilacs: A New Block of the Month from Shabby Fabrics

 Fresh Lilacs Block of the Month from Shabby Fabrics
Bring your lilacs inside with the Fresh Lilacs Block of the Month Quilt; a Shabby Fabrics Exclusive! This beautiful quilt design features the Fresh Lilacs collection by Debbie Beaves for Maywood Studio. The finished project measures 50" x 63" and, when completed, is a stunning collection of purples, greens, and cream. The intricate looking design is achieved through basic piecing techniques and a quilter of any skill level can complete this quilte! Don't you love it when something that is basic looks complex and detailed?!
Watch this video from Jennifer Bosworth, the designer of this gorgeous quilt, while you read along to learn more about this block of the month program:

This striking Block of the Month begins on June 16, 2015 and runs for 7 months. Each month, as a member of this BOM, you will receive the patterns and fabrics to complete two blocks. The last shipment will include the patterns for the sashing, borders, and binding so you can bring all of the blocks together and complete your quilt!

For this program we are also offering a coordinating "Oops" kit, which is a quilter's best friend. The kit will include one fat eighth of each of the ten fabrics used to create the blocks within this quilt.

The Oops kit gives you peace of mind that you have additional fabric on hand in case of an "oops" when cutting or sewing... which is something that none of us quilters ever do, right?! The Oops kit is also a great way to make coordinating small projects if you end up not using the fat eighths in your quilt!

This quilt is a great Springtime project that will bring color and lightness to any home and I hope you all join the Fresh Lilacs Block of the Month today!!

Until next time,
Katherine
