STARTER KIT FOR THE CREAM SPARKLE BOM 2018

This Kit includes the following:
(36) ¼ yd cuts in a variety of creams, ivories and soft whites. Almost all of the fabrics included were used in our year long block-of-the-month program with a few additions of what we have available today.
Pattern instructions for all 12 months of the program including the finishing directions with several setting options.

Kit does NOT include:
You will need to add a border fabric and some cream prints of your own to round out the (48) that the full program received. You can use your stash or add in a few of our CREAM BUNDLES available in our shop throughout the year.
Your fabric does not come divided up into monthly increments. You will need to make your own pair decisions from what is included in addition to whatever you choose to add to round out the group. Since this is a low volume project, where the contrast really does not matter at all, there is is no wrong way to join these fabrics. Just choose 2 fabrics for each set of simple blocks and enjoy the process of working with all of these sparkly cream fabrics!

THIS IS THE OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM ITSELF...

Join us for our newest adventure.... CREAM SPARKLE BOM!!

You all know that I love color. One might say that I live for color and I look for it everywhere I go and base all of my design and quilt work on how the color palette plays with each other and how the colors create a feel or an emotion. I am all about the color. HOWEVER... I am also a little bit obsessed with the Farmhouse interior decorating movement and the neutral backdrop. I love white painted furniture and white chipped china, and at heart there is a lot of Farmhouse vintage style in me. Sooo... I thought it was time to take a the plunge and make an ALL NEUTRAL, LOW VOLUME quilt project and bring you along for the ride. Yup, all creams, a few light tans and very soft greys and that's it! No other color than the tiny little prints in the ivory and cream prints. For those of you who are unsure what the term "LOW VOLUME" means, here is my definition= low volume refers to prints that don't have a lot of contrast in them, don't have a lot of color and are soft and "low" in their volume. Think turning the radio up and then turning it down... these are definitely prints that are all "turned down" and there is very little contrast within it. The quilt is meant to feel washed and soft and vintage due to the cream palette and the simple blocks scattered throughout. The palette will be some of our current favorite FIG TREE creams mixed in with cream prints from all of my favorite MODA designer, including Mince and Simpson, MODA basics, Sherri & Chelsi, Corey Yoder, 3 Sisters, Kate Spain, Primitive Gatherings and more. I am not done collecting and will keep adding lovely little cream prints as I find them! Each month you will get (4) different cream and ivory ¼ yds. to work with. You will also get instructions for simple, classic blocks to make with said quarter yards. For example, one month might be Churn Dashes and Nine-patches. Another might be Flying Geese and Ohio Stars. All classic, all fairly simple, all on the same scale. We will also be cutting plain squares from each print and at the end of the program, we will have several different setting options for you on how to finish your quilt, combining all of those classic blocks and plain squares. I am SO EXCITED to see how this quilt will develop! Given the simple blocks and soft colors [that will not show errors], this is a great quilt for beginners or if someone has been wanting to jump into quilting. Feel free to share with your quilting friends!
