Introducing…my BOM for 2023 – “Lazy Cat Quilt shop”
Join me this year as we create a 24 x 32″ wall hanging using my favourite technique of Lumiere on black fabric. This time we are aiming for detail rather than a HUGE finished size. (I think many of us were exhausted after Frida Kahlo BOM)
If you have seen my recent design launch, “Shoe Shop Door in Portugal”, this BOM will be a little like this. A collection of quirky elements that come together in a tiled effect to create the finished whole. In this manner, we will start with a single piece of fabric 27 x 35″ and trace the boundary lines for each area, ready to then trace each element, as I slowly release them to you. Yes I am a tease with the BOMs. No one gets to see the entire design up front. You just have to trust me and we work on it together LIVE in our private Facebook group. The sample photo is just one of the 24 elements that come together to create the design.
I am suggesting every week we get together LIVE in our private Facebook group, starting February 1st which is a Wednesday. Some weeks the day will vary due to other commitments but content will added once a week and available for you whenever you are ready. As always, once you purchase and join the BOM group you have endless access. Each week, I will release the next segment to trace and add to whole cloth and it will gradually grow until it is complete. The final month we will be quilting after all the painting is complete.
In the group, you will see the colours I use and progress photos and each month there will be LIVE chat to discus colours, tricks and tips for each piece of the puzzle as we progress together.
You may chose to use my favourite technique of painting Lumiere on black fabric or Inktense pencils on white fabric or even applique, all on to a whole cloth base fabric. If you are wondering about the design, think of all the elements you would find in a quilt shop. Scissors, fabrics, thimbles, buttons, and in this quilt shop, a lazy cat who is sleeping and letting the birds fly in the window. As for the colours, even if you only have a basic set,
we will be able to mix and improvise along the way.
With a once only joining fee, enjoy the fun as we start a new style of project. Together in the group, we will bring “Lazy Cat Quilt Shop” to life in full glorious colours. Sign up now and you will be able to get your fabric and supplies ready as we launch February 1st 2023, in a private facebook group called “Lazy Cat Quilt Shop – BOM with Helen Godden”.
