PURCHASING THIS PATTERN BUYS YOU A ONE-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION TO THE LUCKY STARS BLOCK OF THE MONTH CLUB. YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL CONFIRMATION OF YOUR CLUB SUBSCRIPTION AFTER PURCHASE. THE FIRST PATTERN WILL ARRIVE VIA MAIL ON DECEMBER 26th.
Club members will get a PDF pattern for the block of the month on the 1st of every month, beginning on January 1st. The PDF patterns will include detailed piecing instructions, with photographs and diagrams, as well as the block template(s). You will receive two sets of block templates each month, one for a 12" finished block and one for a 6" finished block, giving you lots of flexibility for using these blocks not only in your BOM quilt but in other patchwork projects as well.
On December 26th, club members will receive a bonus practice block pattern, with basic paper piecing instructions to help you get started or brush up on paper piecing. I will be right there with each of you throughout the year to help you master this fantastic, fun quilting skill. And that's not all! I will be hosting Google Hangout chats throughout the year for members to chat and have a chance to share their successes, as well as any troubles that they're running into, with me and other club members.
What will you need for the club? Well, for starters, you'll need a computer and printer to print your patterns on. Unlike most PDF patterns that you can simply read from your computer or chosen e-reader, you will need to print the paper templates to sew on in order to work on each month's block. You'll also need some fabric that you love. How much? Good question. :) Foundation paper piecing is notorious for using up a lot of fabric, but I will be providing cutting instructions for each block to minimize waste.
Here is rough estimate of the fabric you'll need for the club:
* 35-40 various fat quarters, or 9-10 half-yard cuts of your choice
* 4 yds background fabric for blocks
* 1 1/4 yds for sashing and borders
