Block of the Month: Autumn Calling

I first launched this BOM in Australia in 2020 as my second ever BOM program. I had thought the Etoile 2019 BOM was hard work, but designing this baby caused me far more tears! Who'd have thought it possible?

I wanted my design and colours of that year to be markedly different from Etoile, and to have a real seasonal feel. My birthday is in Autumn (if you're in the southern hemisphere!), and being huge fan of oranges, greens and deep reds, I had such fun going on a hunt to find the perfect fabrics to create this BOM. I knew I'd hit the jackpot on green when the Dargate range fabrics hit the floor! I also wanted to include a breadth of skills again, so you'll find yourself doing appliqué, paper piecing and traditional hand-piecing in this design too.

I'm thrilled to be able to continue to offer this BOM in the original fabrics until it is sold out!

What is a Block of the Month?

Block of the Month Program come in all shapes and sizes.

The 2022 Queen of Fabric BOM programme runs for 12 months, whereby each month you receive fabric and instructions to complete a certain part of the Autumn Calling Quilt. The design of this is not easily or evenly divided, so the design will be broken down into 12 parts that may vary in size and difficulty from month to month. I am aiming for them to be as similar in size as possible, but some months might be more work than others! Keep in mind there is no race, though and everyone will be working at their own pace across the course of the year and have varying skill levels!

I a062F41m always here to help so if you have questions do shoot through an e-mail.

This design is a brand new, original Emma Mary Designs quilt and has not been released elsewhere or as a single pattern yet.

Will I get the original Autumn Calling Fabrics?

Yes you will!

Can I join after the program has started?

Yes, you can! We have 25 spots available in the fabric included program and we will accept sign ups until the program is full.

When will I receive my monthly BOM?

We will send the BOM parcels at the end of the first week of each month and postage can take up to 5-7 business days, though with the current Covid circumstances this can sometimes take longer. We dispatch using Royal Mail and all mail-outs are 'Large Letter' sized, so they will fit through a standard sized letter box.

Of course! All your details can be updated when you log in to your account on the website. You can also change your postal address here, if required.

Is this quilt achievable for beginners?

A basic knowledge of hand piecing and applique is recommended, or access to classes where you might be able to learn these skills. They aren't difficult to learn and there are lots of youtube resources that can help you if you get stuck. The trick to all of these skills is practice and not worrying about being perfect. Enjoy the process! And you can always e-mail us if you get stuck or want some further help.
