Family and Friends BOTM Program
Quilts finish 73¼”x 73¼”
 
General details of the Family and Friends Block-of-the-Month Program include:
  • The program includes the directions for A Mother’s Love and Grandmother’s Samper Quilt. Each participant receives the cutting and sewing directions for both setting arrangements with the quilts finishing 73¼”x 73¼”.
  • Throughout the program, the participants make 12 sampler blocks finishing 12”x 12”. The blocks are appropriate for quilters of all skill levels who have basic quilting knowledge.
  • The program offers 2 color schemes for the blocks and quilts including a rose and brown color scheme (which can easily be adjusted to any 2 colors) and a red and green color scheme (excellent for creating a Christmas quilt). Select the color scheme/s that best suits your needs. The availability to include a 3rd color option is included within the pattern directions for the blocks.
  • For ease of managing the program, the sampler blocks and quilts require 10 prints and 1 background fabric.
  • Cutting charts are included with the program to kit each block along with yardage requirements for offering a kit to finish both quilts.
  • The center section in each quilt finishes 26¼”x 26¼”, making it easy to switch the center section between the 2 quilts. Quilters who love to appliqué can make the appliqué block while a star block can be machine pieced. (The star block is easily sewn and requires no set-in seams.)
  • The patterns for the blocks are written and printed individually to distribute throughout the program. Each monthly block pattern includes a diagram of the block, cutting charts for the 2 color options and 4 diagrams on how to sew the block. The sewing diagrams include pressing arrows and step-by-step illustrations.
  • Also included in the program, the participants receive general cutting and sewing directions for the sampler blocks, two 8”x 8” color images of the original quilts and a pattern bag to store their copies of the pattern.
  • The Shop Copy includes suggestions for running the program.
  • The wholesale price for each BOTM program pattern is $7.00 for each person participating in the program for the entire year. The cost includes all of the directions to make 2 quilts. A minimum purchase of 25 BOTM patterns is required for the initial program order. Additional copies of the program pattern may be purchased after the initial order for participants joining the program late. The cost of shipping is included in the purchase price except for international customers who pay a portion of the shipping.
  • A 25% discount is available with an order of 50 or more program patterns. However, the patterns must be ordered at the same time to qualify for the discount. Subsequent orders of less than 50 program patterns are available at the discounted price.
  • If you wish to purchase a single copy of the Shop Copy (which does not entitle you to photocopy the pages for the participants), the prepaid cost is $250.00, which will be applied to your first order for the participant’s patterns.
  • To ensure print quality, I do the pattern printing for the participants. All pages for the entire program arrive in the first shipment. For ease of distribution throughout the year, the pattern pages for the blocks, setting directions and color covers are printed and packaged individually.
  • Individual patterns are available for shops considering the program. However, there is a significant difference between the individual patterns and the BOTM program patterns. The individual patterns include 10 or 13 pages of directions to make 1 quilt. The sewing directions include only 1 diagram of how to sew each block. The directions do not include pressing arrows. The BOTM program pattern includes 40 pages of directions to make 2 quilts. The sewing directions have been significantly improved to include 4 diagrams and pressing arrows for each block. The program pattern also includes directions for kitting the blocks and quilts. The individual patterns are offered to assist shops in determining if the program is right for them. Consider purchasing an individual pattern, make the quilt and decide if you wish to proceed with the program knowing there is a significant difference in the BOTM printing.
  • Expect a 1-week delivery from the order date except during Spring and Fall Quilt Market.
Please email or telephone Lori Smith at (320) 252-5638 with any questions about the BOTM program or to place an order.
