by Susan Smith
As promised, we're bringing you a new block-of-the-month program from Susan Smith's fabulous new book. It was hard choosing a favorite, but we decided to start with the Lewis Coverlet quilt.
This is a quilt Susan shared extensively on Instagram over the last year as she made it. It's featured on the cover & it's simply stunning. The quilt is 70" square.
You'll need the book for the pattern. Order it here
if you don't already have it.
Of course, fabric will be key. We've found a great toile-type blue print coming from Laundry Basket later this year that we'll use for the blue border that is so prominent. To match that, we're using a Laundry Basket background print with a tiny motif.
You'll receive 3 yards of the background in Month 1 along with prints to make the center motif.
Then in Months 2-12, you'll receive fabrics to create the rest of the quilt. We'll follow the color plan shown using a wide variety of softly colored prints as shown. A lot of the fabrics shown are from older 1800s reproduction collections that are out of print. We'll find close substitutes.
The first kit will ship in early June, 2019.
Month 1 is $51.95. Months 2-12 are $15.95 each.
