Block of the Month

“Grandma's Butterfly Garden”

Traditional Concept – Modern Twist

A new Block of the Month – Wall Hanging Quilt from Ashmead Designs.

The Grandma’s Butterfly Garden BoM is based around the traditional and much loved design of Grandmother’s Flower Garden. We have taken the concept and updated it to the 21st century!

The quilt is made up of 86 individual ‘rosettes’, every one different. We have used six main colours and broken these down to light and dark, giving us a colour combination for each month.

After much searching for the right fabric for our new quilt, we settled on ‘Dashwood Studio – Twist’ as it gives texture and adds interest to the quilt.

Each month for 12 months you will receive one set of 6 different flowers and 1 butterfly, making a total over the year of 72 flowers and 12 butterflies. Those of you good at maths will realise that gives you a total of 84 not the 86… At some time during the year you will receive two ‘Lucky Dip – Butterflies’ to make the total up to 86!

Each block has a feature colour combined with a coordinating colour and a contrast colour. The contrast colour runs through all the blocks to give continuity. The ‘path’ colour that we have chosen is a charcoal grey to give the quilt a more contemporary feel.

In your monthly package you will receive one colour set for the seven rosettes, part of the background path and the thread required for that colour block. The rosettes have been designed to be sewn using one main colour (with the exception of the lilies).

With the first pack you will receive a large reel of dark grey thread for the background, a bobbin of white thread for sewing the centres of the lilies and a pack of sewing needles.

As with all our kits, the surface fabrics required each month are cut to shape by us, so that all you have to do is - get sorted and start sewing!

What is Block of the Month?

You pay a set amount each month, for 12 months. For each payment of £28.50 you will receive, through the post, a package that contains everything you need to complete one set of flowers, which will grow into your own ‘Grandma’s Butterfly Garden Quilt’.

Please note: Our ‘Block of the Month’ is all Hand-Sewn.
