Pocketful of Posies
Irene Blanck has been one of our all-time favorite designers and we're thrilled to be the US source for a fabric kit to make her new quilt.
Finishing at 46" square, this quilt features all of the beautiful applique Irene is known for.
We'll be following her color plan in terms of backgrounds with lots of low volume, greys, off-whites and light options.
For the appliques, we'll feature a palette of similar cheery, happy fabrics, including that red stripe that is so prominent. Note that the photo is showing a very bright, almost fluorescent green on some computer screens--the fabrics will be bright & happy but not garish.
To participate, you must purchase the pattern directly from Irene here
. So many of the international designers have had issues with copyright and sharing of their patterns, that many are taking steps to protect their work by only selling direct to consumers. We support designers to we're fine with this decision.
You can sign up to receive a series of 12 fabric kits from us to make the blocks. The first kits will ship in late April, 2019. Each kit is $14.95. As always, you're welcome to add this to your monthly shipment of BOMS from us to save on shipping.
Let us know if you have any questions. We're excited to have a new offering from Irene and will post a sample block in the coming days to give you some idea on fabric choices.
