Liberty Homestean Quilts

Block of the Month

* FOLK ART ALBUM *

Block Of the Month
Finished Size: 43 ½” x 52 ½”

Block of the MonthThe original Baltimore Album quilts have a long history in the world of quilting. The beautifully detailed blocks are enduring examples of fine applique, needlework, and devotion to the art of quilting. For my Folk Art Album quilt I chose 9 of the most recognizable, traditional Baltimore Album blocks and gave them a “Folk Art flavor”. And I’ve taken the liberty of adding a top panel of my own design.

By Folk Art flavor I mean clean, simple lines, “chunkier” designs, and all solid colors using Liberty Homestead’s hand dyed, sueded cottons. I’ve used the traditional red, yellow, & green color scheme (with a couple extra!), but in shades that lend a more contemporary feel. I’ve chosen to include 100%Bamboo batting in the kits. This is a wonderfully soft, anti-bacterial batting made from renewable resources. I’ve added touches of hand dyed & Kurumi covered buttons for a little touch of whimsy. The applique is all fusible and the quilting is by machine – 2 things you will never see in the traditional quilts!

Each block is completed as you go – applique, quilting, & embellishments. When your 9 blocks and the top panel are finished, you just sew them together with the sets & border and you’re done! Just like that!

BONUS!! Included with your first month’s kit will be our custom silk-screened 100% cotton canvas tote. This great tote measures 14” x 15” x 4” and is silk-screened with the image of your completed Folk Art Quilt. It’s perfect for keeping all your materials together from month to month!

HERE’S HOW IT GOES

In Month 1 you will receive the kit for Block #1. Each block kit will include the Ivory background fabric and bamboo batting for that block – both cut to size. Also included are the hand dyed applique fabrics, dyed or Kurumi buttons, pattern, and instructions. You will also receive the finishing kit. Because the quilt is made with Liberty Homestead’s hand dyed, sueded cotton, the finishing fabrics are included up front to insure you will not have dye lot issues throughout your quilt. This kit will include general directions, Ivory fabric for the sets, borders, & binding, Red & Cheddar hand dyed fabrics for the narrow borders, and bamboo batting for the border strips. Also included will be a color card – small samples of the fabrics used in the quilt to match to threads for the applique pieces & quilting.

In Months 2 thru 9 you will receive kits for the individual blocks. As in Block #1 each kit will include the hand dyed Ivory background and the bamboo batting for that block – both cut to size. Also included are the applique fabrics, dyed or Kurumi buttons, pattern, and instructions.

In Month 10 you will receive the top panel kit. This kit will include the pre-cut background & bamboo batting, applique fabrics, pattern & instruction. In addition you will receive the Finishing Instructions. Using the fabrics included with Block #1 you’ll be able to easily sew together your quilt, as each block is already completely finished.

In addition to the materials furnished in the monthly kits you will also need:
1) Your choice of an iron-on adhesive for all the applique.
2) Muslin or scrap fabric for the backing of each block & the top panel, about 1 ¾ yards. This fabric will not show when the quilt is finished.
3) 1 ¾ yard backing.
