Please read all the information below – it should answer many of your questions.
Granny’s Hankie is the 2011 BOM I will be posting to the blog. It reminds me of those pretty hankies our grandmothers had. This is a big quilt – 102″ square. The appliqued blocks are also large – 16″ square finished – so most of the applique pieces are fairly large.
The second Saturday of each month, a new block will be posted. When a new block is posted, the previous months will no longer be available. This BOM will start in January and end December. All instructions/blocks will be available for pdf download through a link on the bottom of this page.
Each applique block will print out full size (using 4 to 6 sheets of paper) for you to tape together to use for tracing your templates. There will also be a larger colored image of each block each month for your reference. As with all applique, you start stitching with the pieces farthest in the background and working your way to the top most piece. The colored image will help you with numbering the pieces in the order you wish to add them (they will not be prenumbered).
Please respect copyright. Asking for others to email you previous patterns is a violation of copyright. If you wish to direct others to this pattern, please provide a link to this page so the recipient can print their own personal copy of the pattern. It should not be used or distributed in any other manner.
Again, once a new block is available, the prior month’s block is taken down. Please do not ask for blocks you may have missed to be emailed to you – that will not happen. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. If a new block is not posted on the date it should be, please be patient. It just means life has gotten hectic and it will get posted as soon as I have time – usually within a day or two (once someone reminds me I’ve forgotten). :-)
I love sharing my desings and do so for free. It takes a good amount of my time to do so (in addition to my full time job, some designing work for Hoffman Fabrics, and generally just having a life), time which I’m willing to give/share. But you need to be responsible for obtaining the file download timely before files are removed if you wish to participate. Under no circumstance will blocks you missed be emailed after the fact – there’s always many who ask even tho it is clearly stated in the project information that it will not happen.
If you have any questions, please email me or post a comment. A few other color variations are pictured below.
The final installment!!!!!! Get it HERE!
This installment will stay up until the 2nd weekend in January and then be removed.
