This beautiful Antique Wedding Sampler Quilt is designed by Di Ford-Hall, and was published in her first Quilmania book, Primarily Quilts. You will require a copy of this book to complete the BOM program. Pre-order your copy here.
This is a 14 month BOM program.
All fabric for the quilt top and binding will be included over the course of the 14 month program.
As you can see in the image gallery, I have selected the border, background and the beautiful broderie perse fabric from Di’s latest fabric range, Windermere.
These will be supported by the most beautiful reproduction fabrics, from all of Di’s ranges, plus some special others, to recreate the same flavour as Di’s original quilt as close as I can. You can see in the gallery, a photo of the book showing Di’s Month One block, and my choices so far for that block, for the BOM.
Being a lover of the English Paper Piecing technique, considerable time has been spent in deciding which elements in the blocks would be best to create epp papers for. These papers have been manufactured especially for this Shiralee Stitches BOM program, and will be included in the relevant monthly package.
Please see the monthy listing below for those inclusions.
Templates……. optional extra
A perspex template set, representing all of the paper shapes, is available. This constitutes 42 templates, and is a one-off price of $140. Pre-order yours here.
(Please note, there are lots of shapes being cut for blocks where the epp method is not being applied, as it is easier to machine piece these sections. The template set does not include templates for these shapes, only for the shapes we are piecing with papers)
14 months of fabric bliss……..
Here is a breakdown of how the BOM will be organised for you…..
Each month you will receive a photo of each block created in the fabrics exactly as kitted, plus supporting notes by Sandy.
Where required, any heat resistant template plastic (with instructions for use), and/or freezer paper will be included.

So, how does it work?
To secure your place, please make payment for Month One, and any deposits for the extras (book and template set). I will be in contact shortly to gather your card details for future payments, soon after receiving your order.
Payments for this BOM are made one month in advance as a forward payment eg when Month One is ready for mailing in mid Jan 2019, you will be charged for Month Two and posted the Month One packet. When Month 14 is ready for mailing you will not be charged as that payment has already been made)When will we start?
Month One will be mailed to you in mid January 2019.
That gives you lots of time to complete any UFO’s, and allows us all to overcome the silly season at Christmas. By then, all the fabric will have arrived from the US on its awfully slow boat!
Payments for this BOM are made one month in advance as a forward payment eg when Month One is ready for mailing in mid June 2018, you will be charged for Month Two and posted the Month One packet. When Month 14 is ready for mailing you will not be charged as that payment has already been made).
To secure your position in the program, simply purchase Month One, and pre-order you book and /or template set if desired (postage will be charged at $7.90 online for this first month, and any adjustments will be made upon posting Month One. It may be that your postage will be higher if you are purchasing the book etc, or lower if purchasing Month One on its own), and Sandy will be in touch shortly to gather your card details to use for future transactions each month.
Please note that by purchasing Month One you are committing to purchase the future months 2 -14 to complete the BOM program. Cancellations will only be considered under special circumstances and the forward payment in credit will be forfeited as a cancellation fee.
